24-OCT-2009, bottle @home.
Past drink before date Klin Kokos. That gave me a 20% reduction at Barley Wine. Cannot imagin it could be better in its youth?
Brown, with nice lasting head.
Curious, I put my nose in the glass. Is it really coconut? Yes, it is. If not from Nøgne Ø, where would you find that acceptable?
Well, dependant on wether you like coconut or not, you may like it or hate it. I am sceptical, but it is no way near sun oil, just a nice, but still funny coconut flavour.
The palate is somewhat watery in the middle, but the aftertaste is quite nice.
Not strong, not very burnt, just a nice little porter with coconut:-) Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Vintage of Klin Kokos from Barley wine, Copenhagen, DK.
Brown with small head. Aroma of coconut and roasted malt. Flavor of old coconut fat and some vanilla. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Dark brown with small diminishing head. Aroma of coconut, vanilla, booze. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, coconut, tons of vanilla extract. Has kind of a hard alcohol after taste like vodka. Very interested. Pallet is medium. smith4498 (3641) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle labeled Klin Kokos. Pours black with thin light brown head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts. There is a faint hint of chocolate and coconut. Roasted malt flavor with very little coconut and chocolate. Somewhat bitter finish. Thin body with little carbonation. This was pretty disappointing. I was hoping for much more chocolate and coconut. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2009
16oz bottle. Pours a nice black with almost no head. Some lacing. Aroma is vague chocolate and roasted nuts (not so much coconut but its there) roasty and peaty smokey notes. This is where it all goes wrong. Flavor is horrible smokey water. Almost no coconut. The body is non existant. Its a watery mess with acrid smokey bitterness. This is just a completely misfire from a usually solid brewery. Can’t be a bad bottle either cause there are no signs of infection. Just bad brewing. The first group tasting where we unanimously decided to drainpour. Wow that was bad. Rating is way higher than it deserves as the beer is almost undrinkable.

Bottle… O’sS&BS-I-T-YVBThrowdown… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention and cool lacing. Spicy aroma is also a touch chocolaty and offers up some coconut. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with subdued carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced. Coconut and chocolate essences abound. Watery, lightly bitter, mildly tangy finish. Thanks to smith4498 for providing this bottle! BuckeyeBoy (7527) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle #1398 of 1550 with the Klin Koko’s lable. Pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a light tan head. Aroma of coconut all over. Along with some sweet chocolate and vanilla. Tast was more of the coconut not as strong as the aroma. A nice dark roast and some lite bitterness. I don’t think it is posible that this beer is just A Nother name for the Porter???

Bottle 1133, labeled as Klin Kokos. Lots of coconut in the aroma. Dry coconut flavor with moderately roasted malt. Very rich, smooth, and heavy like their standard porter. Some sediment in the beer. Thick, full mouthfeel. I liked it. zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle #1133 of 1550 labeled as Klin Kokos, courtesy of akevitt. Pours an opaque dark brown body with light brown head. Interesting aroma and flavor of dark malts, cocoa, and coconut. I didn’t really care for this as much as the regular Nøgne Ø Porter. Body is somewhat light. Finishes with an odd medicinal taste. Skyview (5927) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2009
From 500ml bottle (1133/1550) as Nøgne Ø Klin Kokos and shared by Akevitt, pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film top and no ring. Aroma of scrappy coconut, a hint of chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of yeast. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation, with flavors of toasted coconut, light chocolate, vanilla, and some wood. Finish is semi-dry with a toasted dark malt and coconut aftertaste.
