3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I dunno, I guess I’m a sucker for a decent porter. I haven’t had anything of note from this brewery, but hell, I’d 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.

more rum than coconut and not too much rum which is probably better overall. a bit of richness in the body and some sugar. interesting aroma.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Whole Foods. Smelled great, with a hint of coconut. Tasted smooth but the coconut was not really present. Slightly watery. Only the 2nd Porter i’ve tried but it’s a bit too weak for my tastes.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks to my brother! Roasty aroma with notes of chocolate and subtle hints of coconut. Pours very dark brown with a thin tan head and decent lacing. Roasted malt character up front with a hint of chocolate. Finishes clean and dry with the coconut flavor showing up subtly at the end. Pretty good, but could use more coconut.

A good beer but not great needs more coconut. Pour is dark brown with a small cream color head. A very nice aroma that is more porter then anything but it has so great milk chocolate flavor but still more coconut please.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Apparence: D’une couleur noir, elle est coiffée d’une mousse ordinaire d’une courte durée. Bonne effervescence, difficile à dire pour la taille des bulles.
Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt rôtie qui dominent. On peut également sentir le coconut, mais subtile.
Saveurs: Plus légère que j’aurais cru. C’est le malt rôtie qui domine. Ensuite, c’est l’effervescence qui embarque. Manque de coconut.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours murky brown/black with little to no head. Aroma is coconut, misc. nuttiness, slight caramel/cocoa notes. Taste is combination of those with some faint espresso notes. Really like this guy. Opens up while it warms. Nice use of coconut - subtle but present.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours a reddish brown with a white head leaving a bit of streaky lace. Aroma has ... caramel. Maybe a bit of earth and tabasco. Taste is of sweet caramel, brown sugar and peat, with more earthiness. Oysters? Some alcohol. Not stellar. Old bottle??
