4.15/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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.

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.

3.9/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
