Alengrin (5779) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2017
Coconut, coffee and white chocolate porter from this renowned Florida brewery, tasted at the B.U.M.B.A. event in Antwerp. Thick and moussy, pale greyish beige head, very dark mahogany-ruddy brown robe bordering on black, but still translucent. Aroma of caramel sauce, coconut flesh, almond shavings, hazelnut oil, canned corn, 'haemoglobin' iron, cold coffee, cooked red cabbage with brown sugar, amaretto. Sweet onset, figs and stewed plums, almond-like flavour which I presume has to represent the white chocolate factor without actually tasting like it, blackberry sourish and thin umami accents; creamy, slick mouthfeel, peanut- and butterscotch-like thick maltiness, sweet and nutty with this blackberry-coloured sourishness continuing; iron-like edges too but not unnaturally so. Lots of coconut and considerably less, but well-dosed coffee flavour the finish along with lingering malt bittersweetness, spicy hop bitterness and some warming alcohol - more so than expected from a beer of not even 7% ABV, actually. Technically not entirely perfect but nonetheless a fascinating, very tasty and classy porter. BlazerT (1279) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 19, 2017
Nice, creamy, mild chocolate with moderate coconut notes. There is not so much coffee here, light to moderate vanilla notes. Texture is like in regular porter. Taste is moderately to light heavy sweet, some chocolate. As for a porter this is nice and complex brew. fiery1 (1753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2017
650ml bottle @ home(thanks Sergiy). Pours a opaque blackish brown with a small beige head. Nose is coconut, vanilla, chocolate, and hints coffee. Flavour is the same, moderately sweet. Delicious, with a slight bitter finish. beerplace (2146) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2017
650ml bottle (thx, Chris S.!) shared at Brian’s. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is coconut, vanilla, coffee some roasted malt. Similar taste. Very nice. Ahuth (665) - Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours black. Thick head. The aroma is amazing. Best smelling beer. Huge coconut, chocolate, hints of coffee. The palate is thin wishing a little more thick. However the taste is great. Nice coconut. Hints of vanilla coffee and chocolate. I was curious about the hype and glad I bought a bottle to try it.

Kokos, kawa, bardzo lekkie, trochę czekoladowy, aromat lepszy niz smak
Perhaps Im just the outlier here, but I found that this one tasted really artificial. Theres the usual Funky Buddha combination of a well crafted base beer (the underlying porter here is clean, slightly roasted, and bitter-dry at the end)augmented with a whole lot of wackiness. The coffee hit me first, and it was really great -- its strong and it mixes well with the porters flavors. But the coconut lingers, and after a while its the only taste that was left on my tongue. To me, it tasted artificial, with an unpleasant combination of chemicals and cloyingness. I tried to like it -- Ive enjoyed everything else that Ive had from FB -- but eventually the coconut grossed me out. HuskerTan (2403) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Experimentation has some hits and some misses, and its not always for everyone. For me, this one didnt work.

A- Coconut, dark chocolate.
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Toasted coconut, dark chocolate, mild sweetness.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- Hard to believe this isn’t an Imperial Porter and clocks in at only 6.4% Most breweries can’t pack this much flavor or depth into a big beer. Tastes just like a liquid mounds bar. Many great beers out there taste like this but maybe what makes this a touch better is the coconut is very much forward and has a toasted and natural taste and the chocolate isn’t a dry roasted bitter cocoa flavor but a creamy dark chocolate taste. Damn tasty.
Sampel butelki w Chmielarni. Świetny i mocny kokos, aromat taki, że czuć wręcz wiórki i czekoladę. W smaku bounty, słodkie i czekoladowo kokosowe. Nie za dużo ciała, ale to tylko zwykły Porter. rami_pl (4573) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 29, 2017
