This is something that I've been wanting to get around to for quite some time. A porter with a twist of coconut which makes it sound delicious. First reviewed on December 25. 2011.
Poured a 12 oz can, no label present, into a JFF is my BFF pint glass.
A: Canned carbonation is always something that blew my mind, it poured 3 fingered being nice and tan. The head goes down slowly and beautifully. This porter is completely black and it even fills its corners with blackness. Carries a nice slow lacing.
S: A nice chocolate and coffee with wood (might be a slight alcohol though) comes through. Definitely not weak, but damn it smells nice.
T: A chocolate presence definitely comes throughout. The woodlike presence comes out smoky toasty. I feel like if they say this a coconut taste then the taste is the body of the coconut roasted adding a smokiness to this beer. The obvious coffee also comes through.
Tasting this again on August 12, 2013 the promised coconut body appears all the way through when it is cold, but as it warms it only shows at the very end of its taste (Will not change original score because of this, but it adds if anything).
M: This comes amazingly creamy with an almost full body and the carbonation comes through moderately. This creaminess comes through as it was a Milk Stout and damn that's from a porter.
O: This definitely feels like a porter and damn does it taste great. On the can its advertised that this won Gold in 2006 as a Herb and Spice Beer and I could see how it did this. I admit I truly can't taste the coconut, but damn does this beer taste great. I am such a sucker for porters and this is obviously another one that I have fallen in love with.
