Poured on tap at Longhi's Wailea into shaker pint.
A: Very dark brown allowing almost zero light to penetrate. Small one finger head.
S: Honey, pecans, biscuits.
T: Sweet malts mixed with a nice nutty flavor. Reminds me a bit of honey roasted pecans.
M: Medium body coating the tongue nicely. Fairly easy drinking ale.
O: A very solid brown ale.
Serving type: on-tap

If CoCoNut PorTeR can taste as good as it does, then going a few shades lighter and removing the coconut must make a very good brown ale. A 12 ounce can reveals the answer. On to the beer:
Like the color of dark brown wood and topped with a semi-creamy head. Good retention of the head and solid lacing adds a boost to the appearance. The aroma has a solid backbone of malt, which brings to mind the nuttiness which I enjoy out of brown ales. It tastes "raw too. There's also a strange ointment which I've smelled before, and I believe it's used to kill weeds. I don't have a weed problem, thank you.
Lahaina is a mild flavored beer with a solid nuttiness and a raw grassy note dominating the overall taste. Not the most optimal flavor around, but I can live with this. On the bright side, the town has a beer named after it, which I can assure that most people on the mainland like myself will Google its location after drinking a can.
Maui's done better before. I'm going to stay a few shades darker and add coconut from now on.
