2017 magnum shared by TJ on 12/9/17, thanks!Ibrew2or3 (9062) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2018
Good clarity in this burgundy-highlighted, dark mahogany. Tan head atop shows moderate retention.
Coconut in the nose is surprisingly light and allows plenty of room for light coffee-like roast, mild chocolate and moderate, seemingly well-attenuated caramel character. Clean and, if not terribly exciting in any aspect, there's also not a thing bad about any of the aspects either. No alcohol noted.
Shockingly not sweet or overdone with the coconut, in the mouth. Dare I even say somewhat enjoyable! Dry chocolate character and moderate roast adding acidity to balance. Light coffee and a bit of caramel linger with lightly fruity coconut. Fairly heavy carbonation and a reasonably malty texture.
Giant f- n-bottle pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, spicy black strap molasses, a touch of marshmallow and a faint coconut note. The taste delivers smooth chocolate and spicy black strap molasses nuanced dark roasted malt notes. It stays like this into the finish with thin echoes of nutty coconut. Pretty nice AirForceHops (8416) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2017

Poured from magnum purchased at Gary's Chestnut Hill dark black with a creamy off white head. Aroma is coffee chocolate roasted coconut and vanilla. Taste is creamy not watery for a porter well balanced with the aroma taste and creamy mouth feel. Wow a steal at 25.00. dorain (866) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2017
Vom Fass die Prototype Version im Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-08 getrunken. Fast ein Dessert von einen Porter wo toll die Kokus- und Haselnußaromen durchkommen. Hier muß man dringend +45 Minuten warten bis das kaltgezapte Bier seine Aromen voll ausspielen kann. Die Bitterkeit ist sehr zurück haltend (im kalten Zustand aber deutlicher) doch hier würde eine leichte Süße es zu eine flüssigen Dessert machen. Ich finde es dennoch echt klasse. Gute Arbeit Stone Berlin!

Aromas of pleasant dark chocolate, subtle coconut, cocoa nibs, toasted dark malts, toasted nuts, toasted hazelnuts, dark cacao, faint roasted coffee, chocolate shavings and fresh coconut shavings. Pours dark black with a slim tan foam and no lacing. Taste brings decadent chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, sharp nuttiness, peanuts, hazelnuts, fresh coconut, black licorice, toasted caramel, hinted vanilla, nougat, semi sweet chocolate syrup, faint coffee bean roast, slight espresso and dark roasted malts. Finishes somewhat chalky with pleasantly bold chocolate, coconut and hazelnuts the the forefront. Overall, this beer is just perfectly well rounded with very pleasing flavor profiles. Among the best of the groundbreaking collaborations. I definitely recommend this. A+ rating. bursprak (3282) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2017

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A dark brown/black beer with a mid-sized good lasting beige head. Aroma of coconut, dark mild roasted malt, chocolate. Taste of sweet dark malt, coconuts, chocolate, vanilla, some lactose, nice! Erzengel (10257) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
75cl bottle from Craft Beer Store, Hamburg. The beer in the glass is deep black, nose of roasted malts, dry caramel and coconut. The beer starts fresh and deep. Lots of chocolate there, coconut and the coffee used. The hazelnuts are in the back, roasted parts, nice and very rich, creamy as well. Long intense aftertaste, hints of alcohol. Very deep and round, chocolate, not too much sweetness, the coconut and the coffee is in the background, very well balanced, great depth and smoothness. A fantastic brew. j12601 (13659) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2017
