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.

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.

Brown. Nutty. Really sweet. Only a hint of coconut, and mostly at the end. OK, but not great. Thx Homer321.

jgb9348 (5430) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Dark brown body with a thin, very fast-dying tan head, only a bit of froth on top after a few seconds. Aroma of malt, coconuts, earth, nuts and a faint bit of alcohol. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive coconut flavour at first with less malt than expected, but more nuttiness and cardboard flavours, coupled with the very subdued sweetness and corn flavour. Aftertaste shows almost no body at all - this is watery, but also not much depth and no complexity. Overall, a decent beer at best - it is drinkable, but not showing much of anything to make it a repeat buy, even if I could get this one. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Knightly Spirits (Orange Blossom Trail) in Orlando, Florida on 01-October-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-December-2015.

Ernest (7118) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Can (Sep 17, 2015 canning). Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (nuts, grain), with notes of cola, musty basement. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Almost more like Coca-Cola than beer. And where, oh where, is the coconut? Really dopey.

DocJitsu (1531) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours a reddish, chestnut brown with a magically disappearing fizzy, tan head. Robust caramel coffee aroma. Soft and moderately carbonated, but gets a little astringent toward the finish. The features noted in the nose are detected in the flavors and just as obtrusively. There is no discernible coconut, but a lot of fruit gets expressed in the flavor that wasn’t picked up in the aroma.

rumproasts (4698) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Can. Deep brown with one finger head. Light sweetness with just a faint hint of coconut. Also, this seems like a brown ale at best, definitely not a porter.
