KajII's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
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...

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.

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. Fiche technique : Style: Porter Format: 12 oz

jdb288 (472) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2014
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.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2014
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??

Strong coffee and nutty aromas. Beautiful dark color. High carbonation. Doesn’t hit your palate like a porter. Very gentle delivery. Cocoa, coffee, coconut, vanilla. Smooth, smooth finish.

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!
