COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: It is said that that the first Europeans to experience the impact of a falling coconut were a group of Portuguese sailors. Under the command of Duarte Barbosa, captain of the Victoria on a voyage more than 500 years ago, a landing party was sent to investigate a small coral island in what is thought to be the present day Maldives. The crewmen however got utterly lost on the Island and decided to rest under an unknown palm tree. Sliding into an exhausted sleep they were quickly woken by what they first thought to be giant droppings from the infamous Brown Boobies, a giant seabird known to be a constant nuisance to sailors when out of a sudden they would fall from the sky in a Stuka-like attack fashion. Relieved they were, the poor sailors, when they realized they were under no booby attack, but simply the victims of falling coconuts. And ever since that day coconuts have been a very popular ingredient in foods as diverse as chocolate bars and Imperial Porters. Actually it’s on that very Maldive island the first Coconut Porter is said to have been brewed. And that dear friends is a true story.

Danish: Efter sigende var de første europæere, der oplevede styrken bag en faldende kokosnød, en gruppe portugisiske søfolk. Under ledelse af Duarte Barbosa, kaptajn på det gode skib Victoria på en rejse for mere end 500 år siden, blev et landgangshold sendt i bådene for nærmere at undersøge en lille koralø i det, der nu antages at være Maldiverne. Dog skete der det, at landgangsholdet i den grad for vild på den lille, frodige ø og besluttede sig for at overnatte under en ukendt art palmetræ. Søfolkene gled ind i en udmattet søvn blot for hurtigt herefter at blive vækket af et bombardement af, hvad de antog var gigantiske, faldende fugleekskrementer fra den berygtede Brune Sule, en gigantisk havfugl, som var en kendt plage for søfolk, når den uden varsel dykkede fra himlen, i hvad der mest af alt lignede et Stuka-lignende styrtbombeangreb. Men lettede var de stakkels søfolk, da de opdagede, at de ikke var under angreb fra de Brune Suler, men simpelthen var ofre for kokosnødder, der faldt fra palmerne. Siden den tid har kokos været en populær ingrediens i fødevarer så forskellige som chokoladebarer og Imperial Portere. Faktisk var det efter sigende på præcis denne palmeø, at den første Kokos-Porter NOGENSINDE blev brygget. Og det kære venner, er en sand historie.

Kittenbieer (294) - LYON, FRANCE - FEB 17, 2018
Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Shouffe. Jolie robe ébène surmontée d'une fine mousse couleur café . Le nez vient rapidement sur le café et les houblons comme les très bons Stouts avec une fine pointe de cacao. la bouche nous amène sur une bonne consistance bien équilibrée laissant apparaître des saveurs de vanille après une forte amertume mêlée à une agréable douceur qui restent sur le palais. Un excellent Porter!!!!17,5/20

appiantiqua (294) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 16, 2018
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre "Chouffe" 25cl. Température de début 9° à 10°. Superbe robe ébène opaque surmontée d'une mousse café de persistance moyenne. Ne nez est séduisant et classique d'un très bon stout avec des arômes de café et de houblon ainsi qu'une pointe de cacao. Le goût se révèle par une entrée amère suivi d'une agréable douceur le tout dans un bel équilibre et une remarquable épaisseur. Le palais marque le retour des houblons et une note vanillée apparaît. Une découverte des plus plaisante. 17,5/20

Bottle at home. The color is dark brown to black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, rye bread, coffee, leather, dark chocolate and some grass and alcohol. Roasted flavour with lots of dark chocolate, coffee, leather, pine and grass. Has slick and a little silky mouth feel, medium body and bitterness. Tasteful and balanced.

kaserov (1170) - Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2018
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor y escasa retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a cacao, melaza, coco ligero, malta torrefacta, pasas y recuerdos de vainilla. En boca entra dulce, con mucho cacao, melaza, pasas, ligeros toques de coco, azúcar moreno, recuerdos de cítricos. Final torrefacto y amargo, balanceando ese dulzor previo. Postgusto torrefacto, a chocolate y con recuerdos de ceniza. Rica.

ardeo (637) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2018
Bouteille de 50cc. Liquide brun foncé et mousse brune résistante. Nez : malts torréfiés, réglisse, fruits noirs (myrtille?), chocolat, café bien sûr. Bouche plutôt effervescente, un peu piquante, crémeuse avec des saveurs de café, de chocolat, de bois, de réglisse, ... et quelques notes de cerise noire et ... de noix de coco peut-être. Un peu de sucre, une moyenne amertume qui persiste. Très plaisant !

Milter (1166) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2018
Dejlig lækker og fyldig øl med masser af velsmag. Meget mørk øl. Tilpas med bitterhed.

Nordcore (1718) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Bottle 50 cl. Black with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some licorice and vanilla sense. Sweet taste with a good chocolate and some licorice end.

Blastomorpha (175) - - DEC 31, 2017
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a thick cappuccino head with lots bubbles. Aroma tells me there's something wrong: roasted malts, dark chocolate and something strange and artificial which is not coconut at all. Did it it fade? Fortunately in mouth feels better. Again, roasted malts, dark chocolate and something sweet like milk, even if lactose is not listed in ingredients. I can feel something salty too, like soy sauce. Nice light bitter finish and roasted aftertaste. Not bad at all. Medium low carbonation, medium-full body and pleasant silky texture. Very drinkable. Not a bad sweet stout or imperial porter afterall, but I totally missed the coconut in this.

0.33 l bottle shared with Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran during a tasting session in the summer of 2017. Thanks! Purchased at Hoppiness Beer Shop, Koper, Slovenia. Dark brown to black, small tan head. Coffee, roasty, nutty, leather, dark malts, dark fruits, brown bread. Sweet, some coconut, dry and roasty finish. Medium body, sticky, moderate carbonation, medium finish. Although not very strong, this really feels like an imperial porter. Good job!
