12 oz. can- Pours blackish brown with a thick tan head to start out, then it disappears almost immediately leaving a collar of tan foam around the rim, lacework is minimal. The aroma is awesome, the strongest smell is the coffee with a strong chocolate aroma as well, there maybe some coconut, but not much. The flavor is the same as the aroma, it tastes like chocolate milk with a little bitterness, the carbonation could have been higher as well, as soon as I heard fizz when I opened up the can, I knew it was going to be low carbonated, still a great brew. Will drink again. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2010

Thick light brown head, black body. Aroma is mainly chocolate and a little coconut, which is what comes through on the taste. Some fizzy carbonation at the start and a smooth chocolate finish. The coconut flavor is pretty light through the first half of a glass, but really starts to mount towards the end. Much stronger coconut flavor after you’ve drank half the can. Overall very good. With the name being coconut porter I was expecting the coconut to be overpowering, but this was nicely balanced with the chocolate flavor.

Nice rich porter. Good mouthfeel. Coconut finish is very slight. Would be great with a meaty meal. DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
Can @ Mondial 2010.
Aroma is chocolate and coffee, dark brown, smidge of tan head. Flavour of coconut isn’t appreciated, cocoa and coffee too. Light bodied, sweet. Average.

Enjoyed from the can, very happy to try the sought after Coconut Porter after watching it being consumed on Three Sheets. I must say, it does not disappoint. Aroma is rather interesting, there mixture of coconut and chocolate makes it somewhat sweet but I also think there’s an off-flavor in there that I can quite put my finger on. It’s not a bad thing, just kind of unusual. Appearance is pure black with a nice creamy head. Taste is fantastic, very creamy and chocolate heavy with a nice coconut finish that really makes it round out very well. Hopefully they move forth with wider distribution because this stuff is really good. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2010
A deep dark brown porter with a thick brown head. In aroma, a meaty chocolate with nutty notes, light coconut cream. In mouth, a nice chocolate with smooth hops, very grainy, light coconut. Can at Mondiale 2010. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Super excited to try this one and I must thank my friend B.A for bringing this all the way from Kona. The aroma wasn’t overpowered by coconut flavors. It held a good balance between the coconut,chocolate,barley, and the malts. It was sweet, but not ultra sweet, you could knock down a few of these and be totally satisfied. ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2010

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet with lots of roasted malts, some caramel, chocolate, and coconut.
Appearance: From the can it pours an opaque brown color with a creamy light brown head.
Flavor: The taste is relatively sweet, big roasted malt flavor, pretty much no bitterness.
Palate: This beer is exceedingly smooth, easy to drink, and fairly rich.
This beer is quite interesting. I haven’t really tasted anything like this one, but it works pretty well. It is a touch sweeter then what I tend to prefer, but I liked it. The smoothness of it is quite nice, and despite the interesting flavors, that is really the memorable part of this one for me. Thanks, Nick!
This should be the best of the beers that my pops smuggled internally from Hawaii. Super dark brown colour which is also know as blackishly darker brownness for those in the know.... so-so bubbly head with slippery lacing. Roasty aroma with coffee and chocolate (the coffee is stronger) - neither is overwhelming. Great balance of aromas! Some dark fruit, mild coconut that just does enough to alter the aroma. Excellent flavor - I’ll say that I am surprised as the past coconut brews I’ve had sucked ass. Chocolate, roasted malts, coconut, light coffee taste that I’m digging big time (rare). I’m so glad the coconut is quiet as it would ruin this if it appeared in as high strength as the past experiences, There is a dulling flavour - not sure what that is but as this warms I did find some hidden spice (almost pumpkin beer spices) and some hop bite. Decent carbonation, medium body +, light mouth coating. Finished very roasty with lingering coconut notes. Well crafted beer!
