Pours a 1/2 inch milk chocolate head. Body is black but a very dark brown when held up to the light. Head retention and lacing are barely above average
Smell is similar to a milk stout, some lactose and chocolate. Roasted malts and coffee are also present with coconut faintly in the background. Theres not much alcohol in the nose and hops are slightly there.
Taste is of burnt malts and roasted coffee. Some toasted coconut is there but based on all the hype and previous reviews of this beer I was expecting a full on coconut bomb. Finish is of hops and bitter chocolate. There is no alcohol kick to it at all.
Mouthfeel is on the light side but not watery. Beer is well carbonated but not too much. Head died down too soon and didnt add any texture or creaminess to the body which I really enjoy in dark beers.
Drinkability was good. This was a pretty sessionable porter but at 10 dollars for a 4 pack, not the most bang for your buck. Coffee and chocolate flavors were way more pronounced than the coconut which was disappointing. Would have liked a ton of more coconut flavor and probably wouldnt buy this one again just based on price
