UPDATED: SEP 19, 2019 Deep dark brown pour with a thick light khaki head. Rich toasted coconut aroma with dark roasty sweet malts and a hint of coffee and a hint of vanilla. Big rich dark roasty flavor loaded with coconut and coffee and earthy dark roast. Not super sweet save for the toasted coconut. Jabah (2196) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2019
UPDATED: APR 8, 2019 Coconut porters are growing on me.....especially a solid one like this! Almost like a dessert beer. Aroma reminds me of Tia Maria, a Kahlua-type coffee liqueur. Dark, but not quite jet-black appearance. Flavor has coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, etc. Kind of like Due South's Calling All Cars (coffee/choc donut porter). Coconut not overly sweet. I will be looking out for this again. Biroholik (2930) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAR 22, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2019 O kurde jestem w szoku jak cienkie jest to piwo! W aromacie jeszcze się broni - troche kawy i czekolady , ale smak - woda z dodatkiem sztucznego kokosu. MEGA wodniste! snowcrash000 (925) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2018 Pours a pitch black coloration with a large, creamy, lasting head. Smell is a lovely balance of coconut and roasted malt/coffee notes, with just a hint of cinnamon and earthy spice. Taste is an exceptional balance of sweet coconut and caramel malt as well as roastes malt and coffee notes, with hints of dark chocolate, cinnamon, earthy spice and just a hint of licorice and vanilla coming through as well. Finishes with a very light bitterness and some sweet coconut and roasted coffee notes lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with a medium/rich body and medium carbonation. Certainly the best coconut Porter I've had due to the exceptional balance. The coconut is not too overbearing and balanced very nicely by the roasted notes and a good bitterness, as well as some light earthy/spicy notes from the coffe, giving this a perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. Also has a great, full and rich body and mouthfeel for the style and ABV. Brentv (757) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2018
From bottle. Pours a dark dark brown with just a little stickiness on the glass. Aroma is huge with coffee and coconut. Taste follows. Smooth. Easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel. Would be even better without the coffee and coconut. This is nicely made. A lovely beer. Not my preference.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2018 Botyle from a friend. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, coconut, nuts, chocolate, syrup, dark fruits and coffee. Bitter finish with roasted malts, nuts, coconut, chocolate, dark fruits and coffee. Very nice but a bit too old. bergstaden (4780) - Røros, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2018
Black with dark off white head - Dark malt with chocolate in the aroma - Dark malt body with chocolate and nutty flavour - The dark malt with choclate and nutty flavour goes into the finish - This was real good Svartvit (1871) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2018
Backlog from BUMBa. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Liquid bounty bar. A shitload of coconut paired with a ton of creamy milk chocolate, heavy vanilla notes also. Awesome silky mouthfeel, literally liquid candy, not for everyone but I love it. Angelmonster (213) - Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2018
Review is of 9 month old bottle.
Pours a black opaque body, head is 1/4th inch and khaki colored.
Initial aromas are of fresh brewed coffee, chocolate and freshly toasted coconut. Some bitter black malt comes through as beer warms but sweetness dominates.
Taste is big on coffee, like a mocha with extra chocolate. Coconut is right behind it, this really does taste like a snowball. There is some bitterness but sweet malt covers that up mostly. Hops arent present and alcohol is light.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonation is typical for style. Wish head was more present throughout. Sweet syrupyness of malt made up for that to an extent.
Overall this is one of my favorite dessert beers created. Delivers exactly whats advertised, tons of coconut and coffee. Sucks that Funky buddha sold out, I will still grab some of this beer when I can though JDTerry1 (23) - - JUL 21, 2018
