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.

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.
