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...

AwaKe (292) - Laval, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
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 (401) - 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.

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 (897) - 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.

JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2016
appearance: medium clear brown, short and fizzy brown head that quickly fades, no lacing. aroma: light milk chocolate, toasted nuts, malted milk shake powder, caramel, whisper of coconut. taste: sweet, slightly toasty, with a hint of coffee but mainly milk chocolate, cola and/or root beer, toasted brown bread and some nuts. finish: perhaps a hint of toasted coconut, with lingering malty and slightly nutty sweetness. notes: Better to advertise this as, say, a coconut brown ale rather than a porter. Color and body were too light and thin, and flavors were not bad for a brown ale, but as a porter were not in accordance with the style. Can from Knightly Spirits, Disney 2016.
