Cans are great, except they're a pain in the ass to pour slowly into a glass. I ended up having some run down the side of the can.
A: Dark brown, appearing nearly black except as light passes through. Excellent fluffy tan head with great foamy lacing.
S: I get a lot of chocolate and coffee smell from the beer. I pick a roasted coconut smell too. It smells just like a chocolate coconut doughnut sitting next to a cup of coffee.
T: It tastes very good. I pick up a lot of the same flavors as I smelled...the same coffee and coconut. I like that I can taste the coconut. It doesn't have the same chocolate flavor that pops out from the smell...tastes like a plain coconut doughnut.
M: The beer is a bit thin as far as porters are concerned. It's a lighter bodied beer that is very easy to drink. I would have liked more body to the beer. The bitterness and carbonation are nice though, which makes up for the body.
O: Overall I would drink it again. It's not just a novelty coconut beer. It's actually very good for a porter. Again, I wish there was more body...but the flavor stands out very well. I would drink it again, and I would recommend it.

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.

3.9/5 rDev -1.5%

Poured a dark, dark brown with a light brown, frothy head that slowly reduces to a thin ring. Lacing is retained around the glass. Smells of chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, and some oak. The coconut is not that dominant which is what I was expecting. Taste is similar to the aroma; roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body with a nice mouthfeel. Goes down smooth and leaves the lips a bit sticky in the end. Overall, a good porter but was left wanting more.
