A brown porter that’d be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

Bottle to pint (thanks burg326). Looks solid; cola with light beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and toasted coconut. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

chinchill (3346) - South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 12 oz bottles dated best by Sept. 2013. Pours clear dark mahogany with a magnificent, durable, creamy tan head. Leaves a splendid coating of lace. Aroma: an appealing, sweet and fairly well-balanced mix of toasted coconut and malts with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. The taste is similar, being a bit more sweet than ideal. Excellent creamy feel with good medium carbonation, but a tad too thin. O: Well-done Thomas Creek.

The taste is quite simply good. It is not tremendously complex, it does not taste world-class or ’rare’, but it does not seem to aspire in those directions anyway. It is just beer, and it is a dark roasty beer, and it is easy to drink.

Beerathon (1668) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
A very bitter porter. Super dark brown with quickly disappating head. Aroma has coffee. A bit a sweetness comes from the coconut, but not much. Not special, but okay.

Beerman6686 (5619) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
This poured a light to medium brown color, fairly opaque, with a small beige head. Aroma was of light chocolate, and light coconut and metal. Flavor was very weak and astringent, light roast and coconut, but watery and messy.

Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours very dark...from bottle, no head whatsoever....aromas of chocolate very strong...tastes chocolatey....with a little kick of coconut at the finish...first sip was nice. Very drinkable, and not weird like I thought it would be.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Ar: Light chocolate, some coffee, toasted coconut. Ap: Deep brown, clear - small light tan head with poor retention and a think ring of lacing. T: Coffee, dark caramel - sharp ash, some blueberry - finish is water coffee and medium-low bitterness. P: Light body, high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Nice aroma, but the flavors sort of fall flat, and the beer lacks any real sweetness or body.

Light cocoa aromas. Light chocolate with a little coconut on the finish. Overall a decent porter.

nearbeer (4386) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12 oz. Opaque black with a fleeting, sizzling soda pop head. Nose is ash, dark chocolate, caramel and a hint of blackberry. Flavor is char and ash, dark chocolate, and tart apple and blackberry with a metallic tinge. Eventually I catch a faint toasted nut flavor in the long aftertaste that appears to be coconut. Light-medium body is drinkably watery and has low carbonation. The very light touch of coconut is nice, but the metallic twinge (although not overpowering) dampens the enjoyment of this beer.
