riversideAK (6252) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Nice roasted nutty nose, underlying chocolate notes, a little earthy hop notes as well as light fresh coconut notes. Pours dark brown, more or less black, thin head, not much staying power. The flavor is nice and lightly roasty up front with some chocolate notes, fresh fruity coconut throughout until a moderately earthy dry bitter finish. Very drinkable, solid coconut porter.

JStax (5827) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2017
12 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has roasty chocolate, fruity coconut, and coffee beans. Faint vanilla comes through as well. Subtly sweet and roasty. Coconut comes out more as it warms. Overall, this is a very good beer. I would drink this again.

furthur (1081) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Growler, almost black beer, almond colored head, decent lace. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, coconut. Taste is coffee, coconut, sour cherries, chocolate. Palate is kind of light, carbonation moderate. This is nice and toasty.

tcon25 (747) - Duvall, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Draft pour at brewery into a 6oz taster, alongside the coffee Jones, almost black pour amber hint. Aroma is mostly of coconut. Flavor is chocolate, coffee and coconut finish, not overwhelming so not to bad, well balance of flavors.

tmoreau (4014) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Shared bomber poured to snifters showing a black/brown hue, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was lightly roasted, earthy, & nutty, with cocoa, subtle coffee, and a hint of toasted coconut that nearly escaped detection behind the other notes, Less than medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste followed similarly with diminished expression, and texture that was rather thin.

Gerbeer (3412) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2016
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with reddish notes and full head. Aromas of nuts. sugar and oily roasted malts. Flavors of nutty milk chocolate, light coconut, and dry roasted malts. Very dry for the ABV. Nice.

tightslice (1140) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle from PCC in Columbia City (Seattle), WA. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate. Taste is the same...not getting much coconut at all and not much depth here. Disappointing.

sebastokrator (99) - - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Pours dark brown with modest beige head. Smells of molasses, chocolate, and just the faintest hint of coconut. Taste is chocolate, coffee, and a subtle taste of coconut. Mouthfeel is very creamy without a lot of noticeable carbonation. Easily drinkable but there isn?t a lot of depth.

A really nice porter. Coconut in the aroma and accentuates the lingering sweetness. Tried in Seattle in 2016.

Zeswaft (1727) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bomber. Pours brown with no head. Aroma of nuts and coconut. Very nutty flavor, more of a brown ale than a porter but the milky coconut plays well with the base beer.
