This beer was served out of a 12oz. can dispensed into a glass....
Presentation - Very Cool graphics and coloring on the can.
Appearance - Poured a deep dark brown witha 2 finger tan brown head that slowley dissipated into a nice foam ring. Light lacing on the glass the whole way down.
Smell - A very slight hint of coconut but not as much as I expected. Smells of nice toasted chocolate and coffee.
Taste - Chocolaty and a major coffee influence. Toasted coconut on the back end. Not much coconut at first but the more this warmed up the more the coconut flavor came through.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a slightly creamy feel. A medium amount of carbonation.
Drinkability - Highly drinkable because of the medium body and great flavor.
This beer was excellent. I recieved this beer in a trade with MrHirschybar and really wish I was able to get it in my area. Highly recommend!!!

Epic brew from Maui! Light nutty brown pour from 12oz. can. Nice two finger frothy head and a real coconut aroma. The coconut hits the nose immediately and is a proper introduction to what flavor was to come. Great coconut flavor, not overly sweet, and well balanced with a malty mocha notes. The creaminess of the beer is spectacular, it's richness in body is truely unique in my experience with porters. Grade A Maui, hopefully I won't have to drive 12 hours to get your next offering!

A - Dark brown/ black with a very very light brown head.
S - A sweet smell. There isn't much coconut in the nose, but there is dark chocolate and coffee.
T - The dark chocolate and coffee flavors are the most prominent. There is also a very slight coconut flavor, but it is not very powerful. The finish is a slight bitterness from the hops, but it is a really tasty finish.
M - Medium body with fairly heavy carbonation that is pleasant on the tongue.
O - I am usually underwhelmed by porters, but this is quite tasty and has a lot of great things working in its favor.

12oz can. Pours black with a medium creamy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet toasted, roasted fudgy chocolate and coconut. As it warms, the coconut dominates.
The flavor is a bit of a mess - acidic chocolate malts with a little coconut and some charred bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium boded and watery.
Overall, showed promise, but the flavors were very disjoint and it was thin and watery.

12oz can poured into City Beer Store tulip. Appearance is dark black , tannish minimal head, that diminished to nothing..smell is chocolate malt, coconut, and a little woodsy effervessence as well. Taste is smooth, starts out with semi-sweet cocolate, and finished with a subtle coconut flavor, and roasted malts definately apparent. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with bitey carbonation for a Porter..a good summer porter for sure..overall, good, not amazing, however very solid.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this can. This is a beer I have wanted to try for a long time.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is coconut, caramel and chocolate. About what I expected.
The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and coconut. The chocolate notes are very similar to dry, powdered hot chocolate and is a little bit chalky.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Dark brown throughout with a moderate brown head that eventually leaves a small ring atop the beer. This leaves the glass near clean on the way down. Appropriate, but not special in appearance.
The aroma is certainly the star of the show here, with nice amounts of coconut and hazelnut coffee leading the way, along with mild roast and toast. There's a bit of a maple sweetness as well, interestingly enough. Wonderful aroma.
The flavor isn't quite as unique or simply as enjoyable as the aroma. The coconut, roast, and sweetness are still there, but there's also a touch of an acidic character that isn't exactly complementary to the rest of the porter.
Medium body with moderate-low carbonation.
Good enough, but not overly special.
