3.63/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from can to a pint glass. No date I could locate on the can to indicate packaging or freshness.

A - The beer pours a deep dark brown color. I'd call it black if not for the brown edges when held to the light. A nice 2 finger milk chocolate colored head with very good retention and lacing. The head slowly fades to a thick film that lasts throughout and leaves gobs of lacing.

S - A strong roasted malt presences: black patent roast, coffee, chocolate tones. The coconut isn't as dominant as expected and provides a nice compliment in toasty character to the roasted malts. Nice well-balanced nose.

T - Similar to the nose in that the first flavors are the roasted malts on the tongue. Immediately the roast is paired with a malty sweetness and a mild bitterness. The coffee and chocolate malt character develops in the middle. It's not until the back end that the coconut flavor develops. The beer finishes with a lingering roast flavor complimented with a light light coconut toast.

M - Medium carbonation and medium bodied.

O - A good offering from Maui Brewing. I think the flavors somewhat struggle within the beer to really blend to a cohesive flavor. It's good but could be great. I'd still happily put a few down there for something different than the usual Porter.

3.94/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
