Nose is full of roasted coffee with some coconut and vanilla. This one took me by surprise. Dark, creamy pour with off white head. Taste is heavy coffee and chocolate with some vanilla in the mix. Very nicely done porter. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Don’t know what to say. Smelled like those vanilla cappuccinos that you get at 7-11. LOTS of vanilla, coffee, coconut, pound cake and roast. The flavor was somehow just the same, only with a smooth carbonation that gave off a light earthy and more roasted/dry finish. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Pours dark unclear coffee in color with a decent tan head. The perfect aroma is cooling roasted coconuts so sweet and pleasant in the nose. The flavor is similar, but coffeee rounds out the almond joy flavors so well on the medium but just right body. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2012

Aroma is espresso; no beer or alcohol is present. Flavor is intense coffee, chocolate. Aroma lingers in the empty glass. Unlike any beer that I’ve ever had with regards to the intense aroma and flavors.

Served on draft at Brewvival. Pours dark brown with an average sized tan head. Decent head retention. Huge vanilla and coffee notes in the aroma with roasted malts and a hoppy finish. Sweet aroma overall. The taste is coffee, roasted malts, caramel, coconut, vanilla and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer. biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2012
On tap at the Buddha - pours black with medium head. Lots of coconut and coffee in the nose. More coconut and coffee in the taste with hints of vanilla and white chocolate balanced very well. This beers is "F"ing fantastic. I wouldn’t let my glass go after it was all gone. Great Job, Buddha! darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours a near black, with a small head. Nose is absolutely fantastic. Lots of coconut, caramel (how?!), chocolate and light roast. This beer drinks like a Samoa (the girl scout cookie). Crunchy caramel and coconut up front with a bready, chocolatey malt backbone and a light roast finishing it off. Incredibly smooth. The Buddha’s finest effort to date. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2011
On draft at the Buddha. This beer is good, crazy good!! The aroma is what really blew me away. Kevin, one of the brewers there, told me this one had coconut rum flavors along with coco nibs. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to taste every single flavor he mentioned but I did, and it was simply amazing. It has that chocolate presence that the normal piti porter has but with a good coconut rum kick to it. Not too boozy and very easy to drink. These guys at the Buddha really have their beers nailed down to a science. hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Draft… This beer rocks!… Cloudy, dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is a luxurious swirl of big-time coconut flanked by modest notes of caramel, vanilla and deep roast coffee. Medium to full-bodied and milky with relaxed carbonation. The flavor is moderately sweet and presents a lovely mélange of robust coffee, rich coconut and mild chocolate. Roasted cocoa and toasted coconut finish. With a base beer this good and creative treatments, it’s hard to go wrong here. World class beer!
