3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with amber hues. Large head that faded to a ring of bubbles fairly quickly. Spotty lacing that slid down into the beer. Aroma and taste of coconut, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and toasted grain. Very nice sweet taste without being too sweet or candy like. Full body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, dry bitter finish of toasted coconut and malt. Very nice! The inspiration of my next homebrew!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cola brown in color with a thick light tan head. Aroma is heavy roasted malts and light coffee. Taste is coffee, a little chocolate sliding into a easy malty finish - can’t really find the coconut, unless it is supplying some smoothness. Not super complex, but pleasant.

Bottle shared by b3shine at Jason’s Stone tasting. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted coconut, mild chocolate, lighter roast, mild earthy bitterness. OK for what it is.

Decent porter, but a little bland. Barely taste the coconut. Wish this had more flavor, could have been great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours deep brown under a thin layer of khaki foam which fades into a thin layer with a slightly thicker collar. Swirls average but releases a massive nose.
Toasted coconut and chocolate powder in the back. Chocolate graham crackers. Plums along the sides. A bit simple but encouraging.
Creamy mouthfeel – like chewing on chocolate dusted marshmallows. Toasted coconut along the edges. Whipped marshmallow. Plums and plum juice in the out edges and back. Coconut and toasted marshmallow in the breath is followed by chocolate powder. Hard chocolate candies on top. Tootsie rolls?
I’ve had this beer in many incarnations through its development and this last stage has so far been the best and is a worthy quaff I’d drink again. I love supporting my local brewers, and even more so when I like their beers.
