12oz can into a Unibroue tulip.

Pours with a rich, dark coffee body sporting a hefty cap of dusty brown foam. Nearly opaque. Head retains throughout as a thin wisp of bubbles. Vegetal sweetness from the coconut blends with vanilla, caramel and toasted nuttiness aromas from the malt. Part fru-fru drink, part Guinness, but the blend somehow works for this porter.

The coconut gets pushed aside flavor-wise, as heftier notes of dark roasted malt grains, coffee, and chocolate coat the tongue. A hint of sweetness lingers in the finish with more roast and some earthy hops. The mouthfeel walks the line between a thick, stout-like porter and that of the more traditional English counterparts. Not a bad beer by any means, but a tad gimmicky when all is said and done. Many better porters are out there to choose from...

Great appearance with black color that remains black when held to light. Head is a light tan color and has plenty of thickness and resilience long after the initial pour. Nose is also very appetizing with some soft coconut, roasted malt, and a whiff of hop character in the background. On the palate the flavors are a little subdued, with a thin, watery body, and not as much roasty flavors or coconut that the nose suggested I would find. Easy drinking though, but not the beer I expected based on the nose.
