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.

Dark Brownish blackish. This beige head. Lots of coconut. Tail end is cocoa powder and cola. It starts off delicious, but then rolls off the palate unbalanced and too cola’y.

The aroma and color are magnificent. The taste on the other hand was quick and hard to taste the ingredients.

22 oz. bottle. Wow. With the caveat that I DETEST coconut, I must confess that I hate this beer. Because it is very coconutty, and I hate coconut. My wife is drinking all but the tiny sip I took. Blech.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown verging on black with a tan head that fades to a thin layer. Aroma of roasted malt, coconut, and dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate with coconut (reminds me of a fancy truffle), the roasted malt lends acidity and a bit of char on the edges. Lingering slight toasted coconut flavor. Low bitterness, low-med body. Carb a little disappointingly thin for an 8% beer with rich flavors like these. Tasty, has lots of potential.

Choc and slight coconut aroma in this dark brew with a huge light brown head. Deep choc like Hershey's syrup and big carb bubbles. Full bodied. No coconut aftertaste is same as first taste. Very meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
