COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle From ABC Fort Lauderdale. Pours Coca-Cola brown with a small khaki head. Slight roasted note on the nose. Not getting any coconut. As others have said it’s just a regular ass porter which is to say it’s solid but not spectacular and certainly not memorable.

I dunno, I guess I’m a sucker for a decent porter. I haven’t had anything of note from this brewery, but hell, I’d buy a sixer of this. Nose is sweet chocolate, a tad of roast, grain, and not a lot of coconut. Just a hint. Same for the taste. A bit of a metallic vibe sometimes, but otherwise easy and tasty. Light palate. Pours very dark brown with a creamy mocha head and light lacing.

Pours dark with a quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma of burnt coffee with a hint of coconut. Palate is very watery. With a nice bittering at the end. Overall a poor example of a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 WDW bottle. Cool, an unexpected SC tick (that later swapped to FL). In the grand scheme of things it was a nice, drinkable porter but seemed more coffee-esque than focused on coconut to me. Nice though.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2012
12oz bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a very deep brown, almost black colored body with a thin, frothy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is milky and dark chocolates, toasted nuts, a moderate roast, a light vanilla, and a touch of coconut. Flavor is thinner, but similar with more coconut coming out towards the end. An initial milky and dark chocolate sweetness with a moderate roast backing, a good amount of vanilla, and a bit of a nutty toast. The vanilla kicks it up a notch and the coconut milkiness comes out more before this finishes fairy dry with a light, roasty bitterness and a chocolate, vanilla, light coconut sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent porter with a solid chocolate, roast, and vanilla/coconut sweetness. A bit thin, but fairly enjoyable.

DialSquare (5198) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2012
12oz bottle from ABC Liquor on Thomasville rd. Dark brown pour with a big sturdy tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, vanilla, coconut and caramel. Tastes are disappointing after the pleasant aroma-- cocoa, nuts, burnt malts and light coconut. Acidic milky sour vibe. Eh.

Aroma was strong and smoky. Pitch black in color. Medium head. Had almost an espresso flavor very smoky. Light bitterness. Was enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep brown. Roasted malts and toffee. Not getting any coconut whatsoever. Which makes this a bit disappointing and standard porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
