I have been trying to get my hands on this one for a while. I am not entirely certain that it was worth the wait. The beer was a dark malty color when poured into a snifter. There was about a half inch, off-white head which seemed a little unusual for a porter. The fluffy head made the aroma leap into my nose a little easier, sending notes of malt and flakes of coconut into a scent detector. The initial taste was a dark malty thrust with the coconut hints far in the background. Also present was a hint of nuttiness and something flowery that I could not identify. The thicker texture of the mouthfeel allowed the porter to coat the tongue and lending staying power to taste. For a porter, this is a nice drinker. Like most people, I did not buy this as a porter. The unique coconut spin on a porter is what will draw the attention of drinkers. In this respect, I found the beer disappointing because the coconut was not potent enough overwhelm my palate.

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.
