A brown porter thatd be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion thats an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

Decent porter, but a little bland. Barely taste the coconut. Wish this had more flavor, could have been great.

SanfordBrewer (1537) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2017
Translucent mahogany with a short-lived tan head. Creamy moderately full body with relatively high carbonation.

Aroma: toasted grains, lightly burnt toast, subtle molasses.

Taste: fruity coconut like when it is green and soft, chocolaty roasted notes, dark malty sweetness, dark fruits. Has a somewhat harsh mineral or carbonic bite to it.

Smooth and sweet, though still fairly balanced. A bit odd, but not bad.

En canette. Apparence brun, rougetre, limpide avec mince mousse. Armes de toast, malt. Trs similaire au got, cest malt souhait, pas trs coco, lgrement toast au got. a ressemble plus une brown ale qu un porter. Le coconut est peine perceptible en fin de bouche. Amertume style caf dintensit modr. Effervescence leve. Pas vraiment conseillable.

PanMarek (403) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Pours dark brown with some reddishness, beige head that fades. Toasted malt in the nose with a whiff of coconut and some vanilla. Medium body, little fizz. Tastes of the malt and some anise, earthiness, and maybe a touch of hop bitterness. The caramel / toffee dominates the flavor with the coconut coming out as a detail. (Might be stronger on tap than from a can.) Fairly dry finish.

Can. Pours a dark brown pour with a big java head. Nose is light roasted malt . Taste is light malt with poorly appreciable coconut , quite watery and bland ! Finish is light malt without any real flavor, a lager in drag...ugh! Quaff Score 5 / 10

DOC: 6/1/16

2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (base style: 20A American Porter)

AROMA: Sweet brown malt aroma; very light confectionery notes. Some coconut is noticeable, but it is not front and center. No hop presence. Surprisingly not oxidized. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Brown/deep magenta hue. Partly cloudy with CO2 bubbles visible. Small tan foamy head mostly dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Fairly sweet palette with brown/amber malt providing most of the flavor. Caramel and toffee flavors are noticeable. An underlying earthy bitterness imparts balance. Coconut is so subtle as to be unnoticeable (probably due to age of the can). Missing most of the characteristics of a porter; probably better considered a brown ale due to lack of deep dark malt characteristics. Coconut is a fine garnish, but entirely too light. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Finishes quite clean. Easy to drink. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though enjoyable, it doesnt quite deliver on its marketing hyperbole. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 31/50

strap (898) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2016
Dark brown, light head. Relatively mellow flavor and feel. Coconut is subtle with a minimal level of roasted malt flavor with a mild coffee taste. Easy drinking for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can poured, picked up in St. Pete. Pours a near black cola with a disappearing head. Cookie spice, chocolate, and coconut aroma. Flavor is sweet, and semi syrupy. Coconut comes through if you look for it. I enjoyed this more as it warmed up a tiny bit. Its advertised qualities really come out at that point. Nutty, sweet over toasty finish. Decent beer here.
