Gracias to Einweizenbitte for this canister.
a- Dark brown with a big foamy billowy head. Looks similar to cola the way it pours.
S- Faint coconut aromas, some sweet chocolate, and and earthy aroma tinged with pecan. Smells disctinctive and interesting
T- Bright initial sweetness, almost cane sugar esque that quickly gives way to a dry earthy flavor ( coconut shell?) with hints of coconut and roasted malts. I got a funny metallic flavor initially, but once the beer warmed it dissipated. Cola flavor in this one also.
M- Just about right, a little on the thin side towards the end of the swallow. Very dry finish
D- It's an extremely drinkable beer. I enjoyed it and would definitely like to have this around.

I dont get why it says this beer is retired. I just bought a 4-pack at Foodland in Kapolei, Oahu, this morning. The canning date on the bottom says '121913' so its relatively newish. Anyways, just poured into a whiskey glass from my hotel room.
A - pours a black-brown with a thin head that dissipates rather rapidly. Held up to artificial light and does not shine through. Solid darkness.
S - coconuts, rum, deep maltiness, sugarcane. Coconuts are the dominant smell. This beer smells so awesome.
T - as smell influences taste, the above mentioned notes dominated the palate. This is real coconut to me. I let it warm to room temperature (which is about 75 degrees here in Kapolei at 8pm) and the flavors are really enhanced. In addition to the dominant Coconuttiness, toffee, coffee, and dark chocolate notes emerge.
M - light carbonation, which is good for the style. It is also very refreshing and feels lighter than many other porters, which goes hand in hand with the environment here.
O - a beautifully well done beer. I am glad i was able to get my hands on it. I havent seen thison the mainland in a couple of years and had only tried it once before at that. The coconut shines and adds a wonderful element to this beer. Highly rec if you can get it! I will be buying a few more packs to bring home to SF.
