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.

I have never been to the islands of Hawaii, though I would most certainly like to. Sooner than later if I can help it. In the meantime though, I shall continue to live vicariously through various brews I can get from the diverse and sunny islands. Maui in particular harbors a unique and excellent craft brewery by the original name or Maui Brewing. Simple is best, and Maui Brewing makes craft brewing, an art form, seem simple. They also further support my theory that Good beer does come in a can. No longer do we need to fear the canned beer. Instead, she is to be lovingly embraced, tenderly caressed, and reverently savored.
A dark brown-black body with a thick head of cappuccino tinged foam immediately fills my glass. Hints of amber peek through where the light meets the edges of the glass and the brew. The head slowly settles into a light layer on top of the awaiting brew. Immediately I am seduced by rich milk chocolate, warm cream, and toasted coconut. As my nose soaks in the aroma, my mouth starts to water in anticipation. My first quaff and I immediately crave an almond joy. A full and slightly sticky sweet body which clings to my mouth just enough. In the meantime, I am enjoying the orgy of flavors in my mouth: rich milk chocolate, hints of dark chocolate, warm cream, and rich toasted coconut. I am wholly seduced and there cannot be any treat more delectable than the Maui Brewing CoCoNut Porter. Each quaff leaves minute trails of brussels lace and an unquenchable thirst for more. Only a minor hint of bitterness in its finish from the roasted malts. Not one to leave my mouth parched for long, I savor another quaff as my glass empties.
While I enjoyed every single aroma and sip of my can of Maui Brewing CoCoNut Porter, it was sadly the only can I had. Currently only available in America in California, I must now embark on a holy beer mission to acquire at least a 6 pack, and if the beer gods and goddesses should smile on me, a case of the best porter I have quaffed to date.

Great can. Very dark and has a good amount of bitterness. I really have to dig to get a toasted coconut taste but overall it is a very good porter. Rich and smooth. Coffee and dark chocolate.

From a 12oz can - Pours a dark brownish/black. Below average carbonation, no lacing whatsoever. Smells of strong coffee and chocolate. First sip is all dark chocolate and coffee with just a little coconut notes shinning through. A nice hoppy presence all make it work. Great bitter dark chocolate finish. A very fine beer from our 50th state!

Dark blackish-brown in color with a thick dark tan head. Smells like chocolate, coconut, coffee, and vanilla. Tastes exactly like it smells with a milky aftertaste. Has a very soft texture, smooth and easy to drink.

Thanks Brent. Pours a dark brown with a two finger creamy tan head. The nose is coffee, bitter chocolate, malty, sweet, light toasted coconut, . The flavor is nice and chocoatey, coffee shows through, some toasted coconut, a nice hop waxyness comes through. Nice balance. Oh man, i just saw that the description says "toasted coconut" oh well. Very enjoyable.

From 5/29/08. Pours a nice dark brown with cola colored head. Smells of roasted malts and slight bit of toasted coconut. Similar to a Mounds bar. Even more so like a Mounds bar with more roastiness added in. A little thin mouthfeel for me. A little sweet and I couldn’t have too many but this is a nice beer .

wow--coconut porter: well-layered chocolate, coffee, and coconut; bittersweet, somewhat twangy, and creamy; great.

Can courtesy of WeeHeavySD - thanks!

Pours dark brown, relatively light head. Nice chocolaty aroma, less coconut here or in the flavor than I expected; that seems to more gently sweeten than to skew the overall flavor profile. Really yummy, easy to drink, smooth....a nice beer. I could go through lots of this if it were available locally!
