3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I dunno, I guess Iím a sucker for a decent porter. I havenít had anything of note from this brewery, but hell, Iíd buy a sixer of this. Nose is sweet chocolate, a tad of roast, grain, and not a lot of coconut. Just a hint. Same for the taste. A bit of a metallic vibe sometimes, but otherwise easy and tasty. Light palate. Pours very dark brown with a creamy mocha head and light lacing.

12oz bottle from Brewmasters. Dark amber hue with off-white mostly diminishing fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Heavy malt & coffee on the nose. Moderate chocolate malt up front with a hint of coconut on the finish, mostly malt though. Fizzy carbonation on the palate. I thought this was pretty good!

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 - canít really find the coconut, unless it is supplying some smoothness. Not super complex, but pleasant.
