4.25/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass, sadly I can't read the date on the bottom, but based on the other cans in the store its either March or July of this year (I realize this is a big difference).
The appearance is very good, its a dark almost blackish color with a large creamy mocha head. The smell is mostly roasted malts, some coffee, a little caramel, a hint of a sweet fruit, probably the coconut, maybe even smoked coconut(??). The feel is medium still plenty of carbonation. The taste is of roasted malts, coffee, a little dark chocolate, some smokiness and a hint of sweetness perhaps from the coconut. There is some hoppy and roasted malt bitterness at the end. Overall this a pretty great porter (even if it was far different than expected) and this is one I'll be sure to get again. Good stuff.

Can poured into stone glass.
Pours a nice deep black with hints of very dark red. Nose has some roast and chocolate, not much coconut. Taste has slight coconut, mainly roast and a cream sensation similar to a milk stout with slight bitter chocolate. Reminds me of a good milk stout and/but certainly quite delicious for a porter.

3.9/5 rDev -1.5%

Poured a dark, dark brown with a light brown, frothy head that slowly reduces to a thin ring. Lacing is retained around the glass. Smells of chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, and some oak. The coconut is not that dominant which is what I was expecting. Taste is similar to the aroma; roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body with a nice mouthfeel. Goes down smooth and leaves the lips a bit sticky in the end. Overall, a good porter but was left wanting more.
