500 ml bottle shared by brew3crew in Dec. 2012. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, nutty character, coconut, bourbon, some chocolate and vanilla. Great mouth feel, very smooth, good flavor, the bourbon was well integrated and let the other flavors come through. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
500mL (?) shared at Woodshop 8. Clear, deep amber pour with spotty white lacing. Nose is excellent toasted coconut, milk chocolate. Taste is clean, lighter than you’d expect. Rich vanilla, coconut. Soft palate. Really easy to drink. Enjoyed this one a lot. bierkoning (13689) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2013
Corked bottle @ Borefts 2013 afterparty. Deep dark brown color. Coconut, roasty nutty aroma. Malty sweet flavor with coconut. Coconut aftertaste. Nice and sweet beer, slightly alcoholic and not too complex.. BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2013
Thanks to Werner for this one ! gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2013
Head: Small, beige
Smell: chocolate, coffee and even chillies/peppers ! vanilla as well
Taste: start is bitter chocolate with vague hints of coffee bitterness, no coffee though, nothing clearly of the macadamia or the coconut, bourbon and vanilla are present, but again very subtle, nothing of the chillies/peppers in the flavour while very prominent in the aroma ! good beer and glad i’ve tried it !
660 ml - pours deep brown with a off-white thin head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbony wood, peppers, green paprica. Medium body with subtle smokiness and round mouthfeel... Taste is very balanced coffee and bourbon and... woooow! Not a fan of porter in general but this is yummy!

Shared by starrdogg. Thanks Matt.
The beer is dark brown, somewhat see-through, with a small beige head. The aroma brings coconut, bourbon, booze, vanilla. Nice flavor. I really like this beer. Complex and full of flavor, with a delightful blend of chocolate, oak, and coconut. Easy to drink. Medium bodied with solid carbonation level. I would definitely have this again. Recommended.

bottle 12/18/11 from nick and jan.
porter colored with a small ow head.
the aroma is coconuts!...shredded and moist coconut shavings mixed with vanilla, soft mellow bourbon, bs, coffee, roast, hersheys chocolate syrup...oily and magical!
the flavor is luckily the same but with some porter sourness on the finish.
medium bodied and insanely drinkable. it makes the original look pointless...10/3/9+/4/19 hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle… Dark brown ale with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. The nose delivers bourbon and coconut accentuated by chocolate, toasted oak and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a smooth, milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is a sweet swirl of coconut, bourbon, toasted oak, dark chocolate and fudge. Roasty, lightly sweet, coconut and vanilla finish. Bottle courtesy of richiesd! 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Huge thanks to Eric for sharing this bad boy. Clear brown pour with a tan head. Huge roasted malt and expresso notes with undercurrents of coconut, oak, and vanilla. A really well done imperial porter....
