Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured a near-pitch black color with a tiny off-white head. Aroma is like a Mounds candy bar - fresh shaved coconut in there - with a nice chocolate notes. Roasted malt notes, nice coffee notes. This one is pretty darn good.

Tap at CK. Pours a deeper clear ruby. Massive off white foam. Big rocky retention. Nose is out of this world. Super rich espresso, coconut hazelnut frappacino. Taste is a little weak but this is not an imperial stout. Thinner than expected with rich frappacino character. The rich Dunkin Donuts iced coffee nose and taste is uncanny but still a bit contrived for me. Could simply be not even a beer if it were given to me blind. Delicious. Tangy lactic palate. Sharper coffee finish. Liked this one a lot. But more of a Starbucks concoction than a porter.

On tap at the Prohibition Taproom. Dark brown with wispy beige foam. Nose is coconut, coffee, chocolate and caramel. I love coconut and this smells unreal. Creamy with a tingle but not thick. Taste is dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Obviously a Mounds bar comes to mind. Sweetness is balanced with coffee bean. Crazy good. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
On draft at Prohibition. Overwhelming coconut and dark chocolate. Like a Mounds bar.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Draft with Vinny. [resampled at GABF 2014 w/ Andrew] Pours a deep hazy brown body with light lacing. Aroma is coconut and vanilla - pure desert-beer bliss. Mouthfeel is smooth and delicate with notes of coconut, vanilla, mounds bars, samoa girl scout cookies, cinnamon, light chocolate and muted coffee. One of the best porters, period.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Pitch black body, small cream light brown head, spotty lacing. Aromas of coffee, almonds, chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. Flavor is very similar with a huge amount of coffee and coconut. Mediulm-full bodied, assertive carbonation, moderately sweet. Nice complexity, but ultimately I am not the biggest fan of the coconut.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 On tap at Capones, pours a pitch black with thin clear bubble head, no lacing. Aromas and taste of mounds bar, ample dark chocolate, toasted coconut, espresso, vanilla bean, roasty malts, marshmallow. So drinkable at 6.3%. My favorite of the event. Cheers Ryan. Tried again at monks, just as much mounds bar, this shit is insane! Macegan75 (859) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Pours black with little head. Nose is coconut cream pie and slight black malt. First sip is amond joy and espresso with a sweet finish of coffee and dark chocolate. awesome beer. JAXSON (611) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours black with a fine creamy head. Nose is fresh, rich, and lush coffee beans, vanilla, fine coconut and perhaps a dab of dry dark chocolate. Mouth is focused on the fresh coffee beans, very rich in that way while still being light and dry. Really good coconut and cocoa flavors dance around. Palate is light and bouncy, I really appreciate the nuance that went into this. Impressive. reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours black with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma has excellent taosted coconut and coffee notes. Flavor follows suit...simple and just perfect. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a lingering coffee finish. Fabulous!
