look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a thin head on a clearer brown colored body.
The aroma is chocolate and coconut... as expected.
The taste is moderately sweet chocolate and coconut with some mild bitterness in the middle and cream. Good balance.
The texture is smooth, creamy with low carbonation.
On the sweet side, but still enjoyable.

First had: on tap at Concordia Ale House, Portland, OR

Poured into a 12oz. glass, a dark brown-black with a thin tan head. I don't like coconut anything really, but the wife does, and she got this beer, so I'm glad I ended up sampling it because I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Smelled of--you guessed it--coconut, and milk chocolate, with some smooth roasted malts in the background. Very smooth on the tongue, taste of dark malts, and chocolate coated macaroons....which again, I do not like, but in beer form it translated so well. Sweet, but not overbearingly so, and then slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was smooth, but not quite full-bodied; it was definitely a porter and not a stout. Very good overall.
