smroush (256) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Aromas of roasted coffee with fairly mild toasted coconut. Resin aromas from the hops. Color is nearly black with a small light brown head. Medium sweetness; fairly bitter from some combination of hops and roasted coffee. Texture is fairly creamy; medium to full bodied; average carbonation; medium to long finish. Overall I like the roasted coffee flavor and the light touch of coconut. The base porter is fairly simple however.

From the bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark brown colour, small cream head. No lacing around the glass. Really light on the aromas, even as it warms. Coffee, espresso, roasted malts, vanilla. Matching taste - more coffee and bitterness dominate. Okay overall

Capa (3136) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Big and black with a light tan head. Roasted malts, espresso, chocolate, some sweet malt, and a bit of earth throughout. Finishes with a bit of a bite, encouraging another sip. A really well done porter.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
On draft at the brewpub. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of espresso powder, caramel and dark chocolate. More dark chocolate and dark roast coffee on the palate, balanced by sweet pale malt and mild toasted coconut. Medium bodied with a sharp finish. Good stuff.

jgb9348 (6050) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Rich dark brown coloured body with a thinnish light brown head. Aroma of grapes, macadamia nuts, roasted malt and a touch of cream - nice and strong. Medium-bodied; Strong sweetness up front from the macadamia nuts, toasted malt, chocolate, coffee and even some from lactose noticeable. Aftertaste shows some good body with the roasted malt standing out along with a bit of the coffee. Overall, a nice and rich beer that has a lot of layered sweetness and finishes with some tropical fruits like coconut and light coffee. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Tamuras Market in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii on 31-December-2015 for US$8,99 (I wouldnt pay ~$12 in Waikiki) sampled in my condo here in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii on 02-January-2016.
