COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown porter thatíd 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 thatís an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

Pours deep brown. Roasted malts and toffee. Not getting any coconut whatsoever. Which makes this a bit disappointing and standard porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Poured very dark with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, burnt sugar, mild sweetness. The flavor is of chocolate, soft coconut flavor. Not overly complex, overall a tasty beer.

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of toasted malts, chocolate and faint coconut. Toasted malt and nutty flavors with milk chocolate and a hint of coconut. I was hoping for more coconut flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

bubbleflubber (1833) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Mahogany pour to the glass with a wispy head that reduces to a thin cap with little to no lace. The nose is of roasted barley and toasted coffee beans. Flavors show little coconut, but roasted grain and coffee dominate. The palate is a little thin of substance, but has enough going for it to make for a "java" brew, certainly not a "coconut" brew.

nice to see OBP stretch out into some more robust styles. this one isnt bad, plenty of chocolate and tobacco notes with a light coconut flavor. not too heavy too. pretty good.

GTAEgeek (1226) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours coca-cola brown, with a small, beige head. The aroma is toffee, molasses, and roasted malts. The flavor is sweet, with a faint roasted bitterness and a little spiciness. The palate is medium, syrupy, and sticky. Overall, this is a mediocre porter, and the coconut is minimal.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate and smooth burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is weak chocolate with burnt malt, and a certain slickness that might be coconut fat. Sort of lacking in ingredients, but certainly drinkable.

12 oz. bottle from Bottle Revolution in Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of dark chocolate and faint floral hops. I think I have a strong case against this brewery for false advertising; there is not even a trace of coconut in the flavor. This is a decent porter but nothing more.

strongpieman (1499) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Medium brown, clear, very light head. Mild aroma light chocolate. Palate is off for a porter as carbonation is high. Decent finish with some flavor. Pretty good, but not what was expected.

Donít let the overall rating for this beer scare you off. Itís a pretty good beer; smooth coffee flavored porter. The body is light, but whatever.
