john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2010 - Jet Black in colour. Very Malty; roasty/burnt malts, dusty dark chocolate, coffee and lots of vanilla. Fruity; lots of coconut. Hoppy; earthy and spicy hops. Sour bitterness. Like a bitter/sour dark chocolate Bounty bar. Bitter roast malty with coconut and chocolate and earthy hops throughout. Like this a lot. Unique Porter! Very Good! (2010-04)

Opaque. Medium body, slick texture, weak flavor, low heat, short length, bitter finish. Dry, mild bitterness. Roast flavors, vanilla, perhaps coconut milk. Ok, for a change. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Gravity cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Black with a thin tan head. Coconut evident in the aroma but not in the flavour. Toasted malt and milk chocolate come through in the mouth, with a bitter, roasty follow-through in a very thick mouthfeel. Flavours not as strong as I expected, but it’s still a pleasing drink, and surprisingly easy-drinking. Banks do seem to do well with these guest brewers.

bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
Hand pulled cask at many Wetherspoon pubs during their Spring 2010 festival. Almost black with a thick beige rocky head. Coffee and chocolate combine with the interesting addition of roasted coco nut to create a unique bitterness that is balanced by some smooth almost buttery coco nuttiness too. Excellent.

berkshirejohn (6770) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Black with a tawny hue and a tan head; earthy, woody aroma; oily texture and a strong woody flavour; with a dry finish. Interesting, but I wouldn’t really want a second helping of this.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask, Lloyds, Carlisle. As a definite non-coconut fan, I was not overly keen on trying this, however it turned out to be a chocolate and vanilla pleasure, with little to no coconut flavour discernible. Good tan head, sweet and smooth, deceptive and very easy-drinking. Could definitely have had more of this.
