Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Imperial Coconut Porter is a stronger version of robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. TCHO cocoa nibs were blended with the toasted coconut during the maturation process to intensify the aroma of coconut and dark chocolate.

3.89/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Ontap
Pours a deep black with a light tan head that lasts. The smell is coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. The taste is prominantly a toasted malt, coffee, a pleasant bitterness, and the slightest hint of coconut in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. It's a good beer but not leaps and bounds above regular coconut porter. Regardless I would be glad to have this again.

On tap at Stone's 15th Anniversary

A: Black with a thin tan head.

S: Earth, cedar, roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of coconut as it warms.

T: Roasted malt and dark chocolate with a touch of wet earth. Similar to the regular version, I didn't get a whole lot of coconut in this. That said, I liked this one way better than the original.

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a brown head. The aroma is very strong and is full of sweet, milk chocolate. I also get a little bit of coconut but the chocolate is what stands out. The flavor is more of the same. The chocolate overpowers all of the other flavors. Very sweet overall. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice take on the regular Coconut Porter. Definitely one to try if you get a chance.
