A - Looks great; has that classic, thick, liquified coal look to it. Healthy mocha-foam head. Slick, black and oily.
S - Sweet desiccated coconut on the nose is a delight. Sweeter than the standard version. Coconut macaroon, char, and a little bourbon.
T- Tasts pretty much on point for a porter, although I find the abv. to be far too apparent which unfortunately masks the coconut. A little hot and boozy. Less roasted and toasted flavours, more bourbon and molasses. Dark rum on the finish.
M - Nice thickness but just a shade harsh on the tongue, perhaps due to the prominent abv. A little oily.
O - This beer looked great and smelled great but fell down when it ramped up the alcohol without ramping up the flavour and mouthfeel to match. Lacks balance. I tend to find Maui Brewing Companies beer's just a little disappointing, and the same is true of this one. I was hoping for a beer which really builds on the CoCoNut Porter, resulting in a beer with heavier mouthfeel, stronger coconut flavours and stronger roasty-toasty flavours as well. This beer doesn't quite achieve that.
