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...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 - can’t really find the coconut, unless it is supplying some smoothness. Not super complex, but pleasant.

Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. A very dark brown-black beer that pours without any head. It has chocolate, vanilla and coconut flavours, a slightly thin body followed by a creamy slight sour red fruity finish.

Decent porter, but a little bland. Barely taste the coconut. Wish this had more flavor, could have been great.
