Pours a pitch black with a 1 inch tan head that fades to nothing. Pretty good ring lacing on the drink down. Smells of roasted dark malts, roasted coffee beans, and toasted coconut. There is a whiff of metal too which I assume is from the can. Taste is of rich fresh brewed coffee, slight bittersweet chocolate, dark malty richness. Golden toasty coconut taste is present at the finish and aftertaste of each sip. Beer has great carbonation levels. Body is a bit thin for a porter but nothing to complain about. Superb drinkability on this beer. One of the staples in my fridge as the wife cannot get enough of this one.

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.
