Draft. Black, brown head, solid curtain of lacing. Aroma is big and roasty. Nice creamy mouthfeel, tons of coffee grounds and bitter cocoa. NachlamSie (3581) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Can from Party Town. Pretty decent coconut porter. Its flaws are not from the use coconut. It’s actually tasteful and not overly sweet. The coconut is natural and suppliments the porter flavors rather than overtaking the beer. However, there are notable metallic qualities that make this a little less smooth than it should be. The malts are decently roasty, but are more like soy sauce and instant coffee. All in all, not too bad though. olsonerr (90) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Fairly typical porter aroma, without much distinguishing character. Oily body but a smooth drink. Flavor is in line with the aroma: balanced without much roast or sweetness standing out. The coconut is done extremely well. Not over the top but adds a nice nuttiness on the finish. patrick767 (4379) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2012
tap at Brewhaven festival - Pours dark brown and has a very mild chocolate malt aroma. The flavor is sweet with a bit of chocolate. It’s thin bodied. I’m wondering where the coconut is and why there’s some band aid character present. Not very good. Tmoney99 (15036) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted ccoconut and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet coffee flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

Thanks to Chris. Odd roast and a touch of coconut. Very odd and dry. Acrid. hoffrobert (178) - Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2012
From a can pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Creamy and nutty that finishes sweet. Tastes like a chocolate soda. Could use more coconut flavor but still tasty. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Big ups to Josh for the can! Crisp and vigorous carbonation to this dark brown pour. Body perhaps slightly on the thin side, but good nutty and toasted malts in the nose, a nice sweet spot for the coconut to inhabit. Solid base beer but I’d like just a bit more of the coconut, as it seems a bit shy. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2012
20oz imperial pint at the Cock & Bull in Hyde Park. Really dark. Good tan head, little lace. The only other coconut porter I’ve ever had is Kona’s -- so compared to that, this is way less coconut than I was expecting. My friends all sipped it, their first impression was "smokey". And it is pretty smokey, strangely. But not bad. Nice toasty nuts. Lighter to medium body. Nice lighter crisp carbonation. Very dry texture. Kind of smokey savory and light sweet taste (bit of bitter). Overall a pretty decent tasty porter. Itzjerm (3135) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Nutty aroma. Very dark with a thin head. Taste is a toasty coffee nutty flavor. I’m missing the coconut portion (maybe very light on the end), but it does have a nice mouth feel. Almost a light soy sauch flavor. Easy to drink, robust enjoyable.
