COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial Coconut Porter is a stronger version of 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. TCHO cocoa nibs were blended with the toasted coconut during the maturation process to intensify the aroma of coconut and dark chocolate.

Black color, small beige head. Lean body with just moderate sweetness; the chocolate component is very good, while the coconut is not too strong, although its evident, mostly in the final.
Balanced and tasty.

ACHops (1548) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2015
On tap @ Chucks 85th. Listed at 9.4% here. Pours dark cola brown with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich milk chocolatey dark malt with a light toasted coconut note on the back. Taste is similar - big, thick, rich milk chocolate malt with a great full mouthfeel. Coconut is present but lighter than the aroma, just as in the non-imperial version of this. Great rich flavor makes this a nice upgrade.

Very dark brown and opaque. Creamy tan foam. Plenty of chocolate and coconut. Flavor is a little bittersweet but the finish smooths out with time.
