The can design looks like one of those Starbucks coffee and cream drinks found in supermarkets. Short explanation of why cans are better than bottles, and lots of words and designs on the can. On to the beer:

Some ruby brown hues can be spotted at the bottom of my glass. The beer is opaque in color with a short-lived rocky head before it settles into a one centimeter creamy head. Wow, what a wonderful smell! Fresh coconut and semi-sweet baking choclate tease the nose, molasses creeps out too. Exceptional! Exceptional! One of the best smells I've run across in a beer.

My mouth waters as I anticipate the flavor in my mouth. Yummy yum yum! The flavors are great...semi-sweet chocoalte and molasses are the mainstays, with the coconut flavor close behind. The coconut gains its dominance towards the end of each drink. Has an Alomnd Joy finish to it.

...like hot chicks on the beach, CoCoNut PorTeR (eah! that hurt my eyes!) is mysterious, deceptive, and could never have too many.

Long overdue update on 4/12/11: CoCoNut Porter has become one of my favorites. It also makes a great desert beer.

4.13/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance – A super dark brown/black color with a nice thick tan head and light wet lacing.

Smell – Roasted malt, with a hint of sweet coconut.

Taste – Taste is similar to the smell, but also includes hops.

Mouthfeel –Lightly carbonated, smooth, and creamy, with a mild hoppy aftertaste.

Drinkability – The coconut is mild, and I think even people that don’t like coconut would enjoy this. It’s goes down easy, and is a great effort from Hawaii. Another reviewer said this would go well with angel food cake and I think he’s right.
