Our brewmaster Norm Penn’s signature beer, hence CocoNorm. This Robust Porter is brewed with freshly shaved, lightly toasted, organic coconut. It has been compared to bathing in a coconut waterfall with a bevy of naked women. Don’t let the sweet, mouth-watering, Mounds-like aroma fool you; CocoNorm is smooth, easy drinking, and the masterly blended coconut flavor will delight and amaze you.

Pint at Biltmore Thirsty Monk. Really tasty porter. Coconut is there, but subtle and appropriate. I am still, at heart, a purist and found myself wishing for this porter sans-coconut, but well done for what it is. Nice porter-ish notes- roast, dark chocolate, coffee and a bit of smoke. Toasted coconut rounds it out nicely. Almost perfect weight, great smooth mouthfeel- especially as pint warmed up. Lacking a bit in appearance- no head on this one but suitably opaque for a winter beer. Good.
