Can purchased from Hollingshead in CA.

Pours black with a one-finger brown head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of smooth dark chocolate with good amounts of roasted malt and vanilla aromas as well. Not a whole lot of coconut in the aroma.

Tastes a bit different than it smells. Again, smooth dark chocolate flavors lead things off and are joined quickly by roasted malt flavors that bring the sweetness down a notch. Light vanilla flavors join in midway through the sip, and as it warms an underlying sweetness I attribute to the coconut makes itself apparent. Ending is mostly sweet with a hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good. It has a solid thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished the can pretty quickly and could have another, though I could see the sweetness becoming a bit too much after a while.

Overall this was a very good non-traditional porter. Worth a shot.

A: Pours jet black with a large tan head on top, probably 2 fingers worth in my Cigar City goblet. Slow dissipation to a still nice layer of foam on top and sticky lacing left behind.

S: Mostly dark chocolate and a little bit of roasty malt. There is a little bit of coconut and a hint of coffee.

T: Similar to the aroma, mostly dark chocolate with traces of coconut and roasty malt. Slight sweetness at the end where this is a bit more coconut.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth with a touch of creaminess.

O: Like this more than I thought I would, since I am not a huge coconut fan, but the flavor is subtle and adds the right amount of flavor.

12 oz can poured into a tall glass.

Black porter look. The coconut aroma is subtle and pleasant. A creamy maltiness with gradually accumulating coconut flavor. yes, sort of an oddity or gimmick, but coconut flavor meshes well with roasted porter maltiness and this brew is a nice experience.

Pours like sludge from a golden 12 oz. can into a pint glass. A very deep brown pour with some ruby highlights and a half inch head which settles quickly to a thin tan surface film.

Smells of roasted coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Occasional notes of coconut rise to the surface, halfway between fresh shaved coconut and coconut milk.

Taste of coffee segues to a coconut close and with just a touch of spice. Otherwise the brew offers a rich mouthfeel and solid drinkability. A lively porter with a unique finish.

Deep dark brown body with some mohagany hue around the edges. The head is thin and did not retain much.

The smell is a ton of dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted coconut. It's a very robust scent.

The chocolate is also heavy in the taste and takes the form of baker's chocolate. The coconut is much more subdued then in the smell, but adds a nice touch to the chocolate. The finish is a deep roasted coffee and earthy spice.

Mouthfeel is smooth yet carries a crisp bite of carbonation.

This was a fun brew. The coconut adds a nice touch with a smoothing effect.
