3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2010 Draft… 4th Annual Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival… Clear, deep, burnt amber brew with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma presents mild roastiness alongside caramel and a restrained toasted coconut nuance – more coconut, please? Medium-bodied with a mostly thin mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Full of nutty, toasty sweetness and a whisper of acidity. Dry, grassy finish.

On tap at the TampaPourHouse pouring up mahogany with thin tan head. The aroma is roasty to burnt malts, some mild muted dry coconut, caramel malts and a touch of toffee. The taste is similar with roasted malts, burnt malts, some sweet nuttiness and mild coconut. As it warms at the end of the taste the coconut grows to become more assertive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ FBGBF ’10.
Pours dark brown, tan head.
Aroma, light roast with mostly mild coconut aroma and some touch of chocolate.
Flavor, nice lingering toasted mouthfeel with a light touch of coconut that seems a little on the light side. Mild muted hops not hampering the overall coconut and roasted aspect.
Carbonation was a tad too high. Finish is nice, roasted, chocolate and coconut. Definitely a nice change from the other OBP beers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
2/8/12. 12oz bottle courtesy PorterPounder! Light brown, clear pour with a small khaki head that fades. Generic watered down porter aroma with roast, coffee, and a teensy bit of chocolate and metal. Sweet, almost tangy flavor with roast and a fair amount of milk chocolate. If you REEEEALLLLLLLLLLY search, you may get a touch of coconut. This is very disappointing after finishing my keg of homebrewed coconut porter. Lame, just like their other brews.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DeLand, Fl - on tap - the Abbey. Pours a dark brown with a decently thick khaki head. Aroma of rich black dirt, and some coffee. Flavor has a coffee profile with some underlying sweetness - would not recognize it as coconut if the beer did not have it in its name. Some nuttiness make its way into the back end. Leans to the thin side. More like a brown ale in my opinion.

Black, with no head to speak of, Smells like coffee and ash, plus maybe a hint of coconut. Maybe. Taste dry, woody and coffee, with maybe a touch of coconut. Kinda thin and watery, too. Needs more coconut...
