Not a big fan of porters, but this is awesome! Pours a nice dark brown with a creamy tan, two-finger head. The smell of coconut wafting from the glass is almost enough to subdue me alone. I'm not a fan of herb/fruit flavored beers, but the coconut flavor melds seamlessly with the heavy mouthfeel of the porter. Hop flavor is slightly noticable in the background, but has a pleasant hop bitterness. Or maybe its from the roasted barley. I served this beer with dessert at a recent dinner-party instead of the vintage port I was thinking of serving. Props to Maui Brewing Co. for such a unique beer; too bad I can't find it on the mainland.

On another note, Maui Brewing Co. is pioneering what they call the "Micro-Canning Revolution," denouncing previously held myths about canning premium beer. The revolutionary packaging method would be a total hit in the coastal areas of the US, especially San Diego. There is a growing majority of premium-beer connoisseurs who would like to have a canned option to enjoy beachside or poolside during the summer. I hope more breweries follow this trend in the future. I NEED better beer to drink at the beach!

Can poured into stone glass.

Pours a nice deep black with hints of very dark red. Nose has some roast and chocolate, not much coconut. Taste has slight coconut, mainly roast and a cream sensation similar to a milk stout with slight bitter chocolate. Reminds me of a good milk stout and/but certainly quite delicious for a porter.
