COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When coconuts ruled space, they left behind a recipe for this delicious porter. Don’t be ’shy’ about falling into the Black Star. Tasting Notes: This porter has been built with a myriad of malts before being matured on roasted coconut. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth while the finish is a little roasty, toasty & coco-nutty. Malts:Pale Malt, Dark Munich Malt, Cara Malt, Black Malt, Oat Malt, Wheat Malt, Roasted BarleyHops:CascadeABV:4.2%IBU:30

On keg at Shilling. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - roast and chocolate. Toffee too. Coconut if you send out a search party. Taste - very light chocolateand again coconut if some imagination is used. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - didn’t get big coconut but a nice porter.

Keg at Shilling Brewing Company. Dark brown body with a thin beige head that slowly fades. Very faint lacing. Aroma of coffee, Twiglets and dark chocolate. Flavour of charred wood and ashy malt. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Pretty good considering the low ABV.

Scopey (15649) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Keg at Shilling. It pours black with a decent off-white head. The aroma is toasted malt, umami, some sweet toasted coconut, earth, coffee grounds and cacao nibs. The taste is dry, bitter, rich roasted malt, earthy, coffee grounds, slightly charred, soft coconut sweetness and cacao with a drying, roasted finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Coconut is well judged. Nice.
