KajII's rating

KajII (774) - 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...

Bottle at home. Pours clear black with ruby/brown highlights and a large, foamy beige head, medium-long retention with light lacing. Aroma is roasted, nutty, and chocolate malt, coconut, woody and earthy hops, and dates/figs. Flavor is lightly sweet dark malt, coconut, light hops and medium bitterness, dark fruit notes, and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

KnowThyBeer (9) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2013 does not count
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.

AdamT (115) - Wilson, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2013
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!

jhp40219 (255) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 4, 2013
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!

S_Side_Smitty (392) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2013
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.
