Pours a jet black with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and coconut. Flavor is similar, less roasty and more chocolatey, a touch on the sweet side. Well-carbonated with a medium body. Very good. HighlanderOne (1364) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2017

Black brown. Nice roast aroma. Mild coconut. Flavor is roast, chocolate, and a hint of coconut. A phenomenal porter lacking the coconut punch I was looking for. Kleg (379) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2017
12 oz can. $4.00/ can? Pours pitch black with dark ruby highlights and a beige head with very hood retention. Good lacing. Strong coconut nose. Taste is a good mix of coconut and dark charred malts and a touch of coffee. Not too sweet. Smooth, creamy and flat mouthfeel. Would be better without coffee notes.

12oz can pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is big toasted coconut chocolate sweetness and some roast. Taste is more of the big toasted coconut chocolate sweetness and some light roast. Unde (1128) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Dark brown colour with big beige head on top. Aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, coconut on the background. Taste is dry with roasted malts, cocoa beans, dark chocolate and slight coconut. Surprisingly nice texture for 6%, low carbonation makes up for it. superspak (5874) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2017
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 4/24/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted coconut, vanilla, brown bread, light coffee/cream/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and coconut notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted coconut, vanilla, brown bread, light coffee/cream/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted coconut, vanilla, brown bread, light coffee/cream, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coconut flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slight dryness from hop/roast bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an awesome flavored American porter! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coconut flavors; very smooth, easy, and pretty refreshing to drink. Really impressive richness and complexity for the 6%; great balance of coconut flavors, without feeling artificial. A really enjoyable and delicious offering.
