12oz can vigorously poured into a pint glass.
A- Poured a dark brown - almost black - color. Opaque with no highlights. A mocha-tan colored head, 1-finger, stays fluffy for a few minutes before fading to an oil slick. Not much lacing. I've drained a differential or two in my time that were long overdue for a fluid change and what poured out looked kinda like this brew. That is meant as praise.
S- Rich roasted dark malts show a powerful presence. There's some chocolate sweetness and some coffee. I don't pick up any hop smells, the darks are too prominent.
T-There's some coconut flavor on the back end. But this adds up to a coffee/chocolate porter for me. It's quite flavorful, nonetheless.
M- A bit thin and fizzy, but for a porter, that's ok. It does look like it would have more body.
Some hop bite gives way to a creamy smooth finish that's loaded with the malt/coffee/chocolate flavors.
O- I like that there is subtle coconut flavor here, rather than overkill. It's a flavorful and drinkable dark beer.
