16 oz. can shared by bsuedekum. Thanks, Blake! The dark gold font on the black sticker on the label makes it hard to read. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that settles into a ring. Aroma of toasted and roasted malts, coconut, chocolate, mild coffee, nuts, and a hint of dark fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, toasted coconut, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, and a metallic note throughout. Medium-bodied, roasty, and metallic, with medium carbonation. Not bad and could be excellent without the metallic note. Is it the can or what? 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. b3shine (9197) - Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2012
Can to oversized snifter (thanks Chris). Looks alright; LOTS of head. Smells Decent; you can pick up on the coconut. Tastes decent, but not special with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but won’t buy again. RobertDale (6902) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 29, 2014
16 ounce can. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coconut. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coconut, and some coffee. Very nice. Enjoyed the coconut added. Thanks Keith! Braudog (6852) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Growler from the brewery. Sampled all the brews there and this was the best ... thick and oily, with a sweet nutty aroma. Drinks with a nice rounded flavor of dark chocolate, sweet nut, and a little bit of vanilla. Delish. (#3733, 11/8/2009)
