Coconut, or Cocoa and Nut?
To start with, this one is a real looker. Deep brown with an agressive, darker head.
The aroma was a bit muted, I thought. Definitely roasted malts and coffee notes.
Taste was solid. One thing I'll give credit to this brewery for: you don't wait for a taste to develop in your mouth. It hits you squarely in the taste buds.
Very much roasted grains first, with a chocolate note and some residual bitterness to finish. I didn't get coconut, at all.
The mouthfeel was very much as a porter should be.
Overall, this was a darned fine beer. I just wish that there could have been some real coconut flavor or aroma, somewhere.
