3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour. Thick dark tan head that sticks around. Aroma of Coconut, roasts, chicory, caramel, coconut butter. Light carb. Nice low sweetness. Tastes of coconut, bread, char. Alcohol is well concealed. Watery wet palate. I would’ve preferred some more body.

Pours a dark brown color with a huuuuuuuge mocha head. Aroma is sweet coconut and roast with those same fruity esters as the regular porter. Taste is similar to the original. Not terrible, just didn’t work for me. The thin body on this one just really throws me off, and the fruity esters. If you like your porters fermented at higher temps, which produces the fruity esters, this is for you, just didn’t do it for me.

22 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a ton of tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coconut, and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with chocolate, lots of coconut, and medium bitterness coming from the malts. Goes down smooth. I really, really liked this!

On draught during the 7th Annual Nano Beer Fest at Max’s Fanno Creek Brew Pub. Black color. Aroma is dark chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is similar to aroma, with the added touches of spice and smoke. Dark chocolate and a hint of coconut remain in the finish.

A nice coconut porter overall. Pours an inky black with a tan head. Smells great, with lots of real coconut. Taste is smooth but not creamy, with lots of coconut upfront, and a whiskey-like finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle thanks to my wife! Pours near black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and a bitter dark grains with some light toasted coconuts. Flavor has a nice combination of coconut and roasted malts with growing dark grains that add a touch of bitterness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Black, moderate to large foamy dark khaki head, nice lacing. Big coconut nose, soft vanilla and roasted malts. Somewhat of a thin roasty start, definite coconut, hints of vanilla and even campfire. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes slightly astringent, lingering coconut and husk. Great cold, but as it warmed up it seemed to thin out.   Soften the coconut, bring the Porter up a bit as it seems a bit lopsided.

Bomber. I guess this is an addition and new entry to the regular 51. Yes, I just checked the website, it is indeed a separate beer. Anyway, pours an appealing black color with a medium brown head. A big coconut and cocoa nose. The flavor is big coconut, almost like rum or even pumpkin, some sweet chocolates, dry cocoa. A bit too much coconut for me, and I like coconut. The base needs to be bigger to handle that treatment! Good though.

Wow -- amazing. I already love the Wingman porter. The coconut flavor in this one is just outstanding. You can smell it. You can taste it. And it lingers wonderfully. Just ohsogood. A.
