COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley Legal Coconut Porter is a traditional American-style porter with a decidedly untraditional addition of coconut. The addition of just the right amount of coconut gives this porter a velvety smooth mouth feel with just a bit of coconut flavor at the end. A full-bodied porter, Barley Legal pours nearly pitch black with strong aromas and flavors of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a slight hint of coconut milk. So drinkable it’s barely legal.

Helt okej porter, väldigt lätt i kropp, jag gillar ju mer tyngd, sommar porter som min vän sa. Avsaknad av cocos är fiasko. Bara en lätt ton. Liten bitterhet i eftersmaken ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear brownish beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma of coconut, chocolate and a slight touch of molasses or coffee. Flavor is like drinking a Bounty, very full of coconut and chocolate. Good stuff actually, if you like coconut. Great drinkability.
