Poured from can. Black head which fades real zippy.
This is my first USA porter from a can and was looking forward to seeing how coconut marries with a porter, however having tasted two other Maui canned ales hopes were not high.
Overall fears were confirmed. I did get a nice chocolate nose, but on tasting I was shocked at how sapplingly dry this ale is. I also did not get any hint of coconut whatsoever. If anything this tasted like maybe some husk was in this particlar batch. Overall the noticable alcohol taste along with a quite harsh dry roasted malt made this one I would avoid (in a can) in future.
Serving type: can
