COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 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.

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2009
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.

12oz bottle, shared by someone in the group at brew3crew’s Stone tasting. Clear dark brown color. Thin light brown greyish head. Couple loose dots of lace. Nice big toasted coconut malt aroma. Medium body. Light, smooth lightly soft carbonation... Lightly dry in the finish. More sweet taste, minimal bitter. Decent coconut porter.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
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.

Bottle. Pours brown with a beige head. Lighter roasted malts, hints of coconut, and some moderate chocolate sweetness. Pretty good.
