COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Coconut Porter is a classic robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut and hoppy spice to balance the finish.

phaleslu (9922) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2009
12 oz. can from South Bay Drugs. Pours dark hazy brown with a very small beige head. Aroma of coconut and vanilla extracts, roasted malt, and toast. Flavor of roast, toast, caramel, and another odd coconut-vanilla strain that Shawn said was like Malibu. Smooth, with a medium body and syrupy mouthfeel. This is good, but the odd artificiality Im getting in the nose and mouth keep it from being special.

IrishMany31 (1) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2009 does not count
Aroma is toasty with lots of coconut, hints of chocolate and coffee. Appearance is dark with a slight white head. Taste is very unique and surprisingly enjoyable, with heavy chocolate and coconut tastes coming through in the end. The palate is smooth. Overall very unique and enjoyable

Can from Hi-Time. Dark brown with nice head. Toasty nose with lots of coconut. Really surprisingly nice. Taste is malty, toasty, not too strong. Than chocolate and coconut kick in at the end. Well done with kudos for microcanning explanation.

madmitch76 (24173) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
5th July 2008. Richer and thicker than most porters. The coconut is a light touch on the palate. Some toasted malt but also slighty creamy. No bitterness at all.

10/29/2009: Maui CoCoNut Porter... Aroma: Rich chocolates; hints of coffee; the coconut pops through; thick Mounds. Appearance: Extremely dark, opaque brown with a small, tan-colored head. Flavor: Toasted coconut and chocolate; roasted malt; Palate: Medium-light; not huge, but very quaffable in large quantities. Overall: Smells and tastes almost just like a Mounds Bar, maybe even Almond Joy...

12 fl. oz. can ( 5.7% ABV) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #340 for this beer.

Can: Dark brown with a thin beige head. Sweet aroma with dark chocolate, sweetness, and light roast. Tastes very smooth and chocolatey. Roast, sweet, nutty, and toasty. Some of this has to be the coconut... comes together absolutely great. Differrent and fun. Thanks Jordan.

jcr (2680) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Can. Huge tan pillowy head, slowly diminishing. Deep brown body, approaching black. Pleasant, sweet aroma of cocoa powder, milk chocolate, roasted malt and coconut milk. The flvaor is moderately to heavily sweet, but not cloying, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, velvety texture turning watery, soft carbonation. This reminds me of a sweet oatmeal stout with its slick texture and sweet backbone. Nice balance of bitterness in the finish. Interesting beer.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Can: Pours black with brown head and lacing. Nose of light toasty coconut, chocolate, roast and vanilla. The flavor is nutty, toasty and sweet but balanced with the dark chocolate and heavy body. Very nice and subtle, not too much of that sweet coconut comes through, just the meaty toasted quality.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 11, 2009
Can (in NZ). Plenty of dark chocolate on the nose - pass the Green & Blacks. Plenty of dark chocolate in the flavour as well, the coconut decides to wash over the taste buds later on in the swallow. Wasnt sure what this would be like, but the chocolate and coconut are very clean on a good porter palate.
