"Coconut Porter is a fresh handcrafted robust porter brewed with six varieties of malted barley, hops, and hand-toasted coconut."
For some odd reason, warm days make me long for dark beers. This one hits the spot!
Coming out of the can, the beer appears a deep chestnut brown color, and in the glass it appears almost completely black. Solid 2 fingers of mocha-colored foam on top. Slowly, the head dissipates to a very thin layer of bubbles.
The aroma is of delicious taosted coconut mixed with the milk chocolate smells of the porter's dark malts. It is a gentle yet distinctive aroma!
Fills the mouth with rich nots of toasted coconut, dark chocolate, toasted marshmallow, and light suggestions of lactose sugar.
Mouthfeel is a medium-bodied texture, with enough lively carbonation to keep it from being "heavy". Biting finish, and a roasty aftertaste.
Enjoyable beer and I would most definitely drink this beer again. Probably would go extremely well with desserts and Hawaiian-inspired pork dishes.
