Appearance: Slight, sticky, off-white head lies scattered across a dark amber body, impenetrable to light. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Dark malt, cold coffee, and toasted coconut dominate the aroma. There are hints of vanilla and sweet alcohol as well.

Taste: The taste begins with roasted coconut, dark, slightly sweet malt, cold coffee, and hints of vanilla. As the taste progresses, cold coffee flavors ascend. These flavors play off against moderate herbal hops. Later in the taste, a fairly pronounced wood note appears,. The taste finishes with a long, lingering vanilla and wood note.

Mouth feel: Fairly full, with somewhat sharp carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Quite nicely done, a complex and beguiling example.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

It smells mildly like coconut, but I wouldn't toss this at any coconut fanatics. They'd be disappointed. But as a nice rich porter, it had a great mouth feel and good flavors.

February 15, 2015

12 oz can, English dimpled pint

A – Very dark brown to black, mostly opaque. A huge, frothy head of about two inches, medium tan in color, lingers for a long while on top, sudsy and gorgeous.

S – Coconut is very high in the mix, along with sweet chocolate and some toffee aromas. Maybe some vanilla in the background. Very sweet on the nose. Some earthy hops are present, though they contribute more bitterness here than anything else.

T – Very malty sweet, milky chocolate and sweet coconut, but not at all cloying. Again, some vanilla is present in the background, along with some darker caramel/toffee notes. The hop flavor is pretty limited here, some herbal/earthy quality, but contributing a moderate level of hop bitterness to help balance out the sweetness. The balance is towards sweet however.

M – Very high carbonation, sudsy from the moment the can is opened (I’ve had a couple gushers with these in the past). The body is medium, probably a bit heavier but the carbonation helps lighten it up. Fairly dry in spite of the sweetness in the flavor, malt sweetness and hop bitterness both present but balanced towards sweet.

O – This is one of my all-time go to beers. In spite of the darkness, it is highly drinkable any time of the year thanks to the high carbonation and the refreshing, different coconut flavors. Every time I think I probably won’t like this as much the next time I try it, it surprises me all over again. Perfectly crafted, preserves well in the can, goes down easy.

Beer is alright. Like a few others that commented on here it does not taste like any coconut. The beer has a rich coffee like taste that isn't sweet. For the price of a 4 pack here in Hawaii I think it's not worth it. It's a decent porter in my opinion, but that's about it. It's still a quality beer it doesn't taste cheap. Different strokes for different folks. I love dark beer, but won't be getting another pack of this no time soon.
