A brown porter that’d 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 that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

KajII's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced steadily, down to a thin film and large collar with good streaky lacing. The aroma was kind of sweet with a definite lactose sugar scent with some roasted grain malts and a doughy yeast and had notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and a very, very light hint of coconut. The taste was lightly malty and a tad sweet with a decent chocolate presence early on, and then became slightly milky with a does of coffee, a bit of vanilla and a hardly noticeable hint of coconut at the finish. The flavor was short lived and faded very quickly from the taste buds. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and rather watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall this brew was tasty, but rather thin for a Porter. Although I believe calling it Toasted Coconut is kind of redundant, as it is barely noticeable in the taste or the aroma...

Can - Sweet flavor. Very smooth and creamy. Not much of a coconut flavor but then they do say it got the "right touch" of coconut. A good after dinner beer. Not heavy or offensive to the palate.

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.

A reddish brown porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet chocolate malt with caramel notes, light coffee, nice but no coconut. In mouth, sweet chocolate malt with light coconut butter, oily mouth feel, vanilla, OK. Can at OttBottShare March 2017.

En canette. Apparence brun, rougeâtre, limpide avec mince mousse. Arômes de toast, malt. Très similaire au goût, c’est malté à souhait, pas très coco, légèrement toasté au goût. Ça ressemble plus à une brown ale qu’à un porter. Le coconut est à peine perceptible en fin de bouche. Amertume style café d’intensité modéré. Effervescence élevée. Pas vraiment conseillable.

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.

jjgmd (2162) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2017
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 doesn’t quite deliver on its marketing hyperbole. 6/10

12 oz. can. Dark brown, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste sweet malt, chocolate, and nuts with hints of coconut.

strap (915) - 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
