3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced steadily, down to a thin film and large collar with good streaky lacing.
The aroma was kind of sweet with a definite lactose sugar scent with some roasted grain malts and a doughy yeast and had notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and a very, very light hint of coconut.
The taste was lightly malty and a tad sweet with a decent chocolate presence early on, and then became slightly milky with a does of coffee, a bit of vanilla and a hardly noticeable hint of coconut at the finish. The flavor was short lived and faded very quickly from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and rather watery in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall this brew was tasty, but rather thin for a Porter. Although I believe calling it Toasted Coconut is kind of redundant, as it is barely noticeable in the taste or the aroma...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 wasnít picked up in the aroma.

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.

Quite difficult to find in here. Nice to drink and very coconut alike. Refreshing and thin too.

Bottle- Thanks Bernie. Pretty average porter. Unfortunate, because I love porters and coconut. Didnít taste much coconut. Got some roasted chocolate notes and some wheaty malt. Otherwise a bit of a disappointment.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours from 12 oz bottle a very dark ruby brown, nearly black. Thin white layer of foam quickly dissipated. Aroma of dark chocolates, licorice, some faint coconut, roasted malted barley. Flavour is subdued, chocolate and roasted barley, coconut not present on my palate, if so very faint. Marginally decent porter, but yet its not my fave style either.
