Thanks to Dan3279 for yet another great hookup.

Poured from a 12 oz. can (No Date) into a pint glass.

A strong pour yields a 1 1/2-finger tan-colored head that settles after a couple minutes to a thick, even coating. The body is a dark mahogany that resists all light penetration. Just a few light brown floaties can be seen at the edges of the glass. Some light lacing can be seen clinging desperately to the glass between sips but always seems to succumb to gravity.

The nose has a very rich, robust quality to it. It smells more like an American Stout than a Porter. Dark and milk chocolate intertwine with light notes of burnt coffee beans and chocolate milk. Just a touch of toasted coconut is discernible but has to be searched for. If you didn't know to look for it you would probably miss it.

Each sip starts out just like the nose with dominating flavors of milk and dark chocolate. Flavors of black coffee and chocolate milk are also there. As the beer is swallowed, roasted coffee bean flavors come out and are quickly joined by a smokiness (is this the coconut?). As these flavors fade, a bit of a coffee bitterness sets in at the back of the throat and slowly transforms into more of a grassy hops bitterness.

The medium body makes this very drinkable for such a dark beer. It is smooth and slick with no traces of stickiness or coating. The carbonation is very fizzy, cutting the body and increasing drinkability. While it does make dissecting the flavors a little difficult at the beginning of each sip, it does create a very enjoyable experience and slightly foamy swallow.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance – A super dark brown/black color with a nice thick tan head and light wet lacing.

Smell – Roasted malt, with a hint of sweet coconut.

Taste – Taste is similar to the smell, but also includes hops.

Mouthfeel –Lightly carbonated, smooth, and creamy, with a mild hoppy aftertaste.

Drinkability – The coconut is mild, and I think even people that don’t like coconut would enjoy this. It’s goes down easy, and is a great effort from Hawaii. Another reviewer said this would go well with angel food cake and I think he’s right.
