Bottle. Brown/black with thin beige head. Coconut and malt aroma. . Malty flavour, tending to sweetness with more coconut. More coconut in the aftertaste. gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2010
12 oz can left over thanks to MrBunn’s recent visit. Who would’ve figured we’d buy more beer than we could actually drink? Anyway, pours like a cola, with similar color and thickness, but even less foam. Aroma is decently rich of chocolate and perhaps some sweet coconut? There is just a touch of bitter coffee in the nose as well. Initial flavor is coffee, followed by chocolate, bitter, then back to coffee before settling into a quiet finish that has just a touch of coconut, though it’s hard to detect, and a thin slice of that metallic edge from being in the can. Overall, though, this is a very tasty, nicely balanced porter, and I am really impressed with such quality coming from a can. Thanks Bunn! tagen (1) - California, USA - JAN 16, 2010 does not count
i had this beer in hawaii at the brewery and it was an instant favorite, a must try. Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
12oz can thanks to MJGG ! POurs black with a small head that disapears fast. Nose is roasted malt, some chocolate with hints of vanilla, red fruits and licorice. Taste has roasted malt and some red fruits with hints of hops and chocolate. Finish is rather dry and roasty. Small hint of butter on the finish. A bit simple but great nontheless.

Can. Pour looks kind of like a cola with a fizzy head, carbonation sticking to the side of the glass. Aromas are decent... kind of a sweet chocolate a little bit of nondescript sweetness I’d call coconut if it weren’t so obvious. Flavor is very nice... a light chocolate base with quite a bit of sweetness and a thin and effervescent body (especially for the style.) Coconut is present in the very tail end of the finish and a little bit of a metallic edge is there as well, which is the only complaint I could raise.

Dark, nice malt aromas. Definite coconut flavor that gives the beer a nice flair and a good mouth-feel to this porter. cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Can’t say that there’s a whole lot going on here. Appearance is the strongest point. Taste is somewhat generic or bland but inoffensive, a little breezy on the finish. Tasting blind I would have no idea what to make of this other than that it’s some kind of sweetened dark ale. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2010
12 oz can courtesy of Secret Santa ’09. Dark brown pour with a full creamy textured beige head. Head slowly recededs leaving random lace. Aroma is malt, chocolate and coconut. Palate is moderate in body with a smooth texture. Flavor is mild chocolate, malt with a bit of coconut. Unique and very good. daleharshman (1064) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 1, 2010
12 ounce can from BevMo ($10.99 for 4-pack). Pours mostly black with big thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate fudge and cocoa powder, toasted coconut (yes, it’s there), and roasted malt tones. The flavor has more of that rich chocolate fudge, some coffee, and slightly burnt malt notes. Lightly sweet, but I did not get much coconut in the flavor which is unfortunate as I really like coconut. Feels on the light side -- I think there is room here for them to ramp up the ABV and make the thing heavier. And put more coconut in! DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Aroma is of coconut with a hint of molasses and chocolate. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Seems to be more carbonated and thinner than most other porters. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee and a bit of coconut. A little bit of an alcohol start with a slightly hoppy finish. More bitter than I expected.
