Was able to try a can of CoCoNut Porter from Maui Brewing Co. The color was a opaque dark with tan head that did not lace that well. The smell included roast, coconut, chocolate and light espresso. The taste was more dominated by roast and espresso....slight chocolate and not much coconut. The mouthfeel is a medium body porter that had minimal carbontation. Overall it is amazing!!!!

thanks to pjones for another delicious beer! no one drank this at hb club. Their loss now my gain today.

A beautiful beer that pours a darkest brown and turbid, covered with 4 fingers of lasting beige whipped cream.

Mmmm, milk chocolate and creamy light coffee with a very light tangy edge, and hints of candi and toffee. Coconut? MIA in bouquet.

Very sweet with sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, then a morph into the roastier flavors, which are very light in nature, some swet milk chocolate and creamy sweet coffee. Just the lightest hint of tart yeast, and even lighter hints of coconut toward the end of the sip as it warms.

Very light in the mouth, full of flavors and sweet at that, but no cloy, very clean, its strongest feature, the flavors shine here for sure. Nice finish, if a touch too lacking roast.

Nice American Porter that drinks like a lightish Milk Stout. Recommended

I'm a bit biased when it comes to this beer, I was born and raised in Maui...moved well before I started drinking beer though.

So, found a can of this in the back of the "cellar" the other day, was canned over a year ago. Figured it was about time to drink it...have had it many times but usually on the fresh side.

Pours a deep dark brown, with a 2 finger tan head.
Aroma;incredibly roasty, coffee, milk chocolate.
Taste; matches the nose but the best way to describe it is toasty...could be the fact that the coconut is toasted. The only time I have really ever detected an actual note of coconut is when it's super fresh...it's been a while since I have had that happen.

Thought it was time to review this beer, as it is a personal fav of mine. I'm stoked that it held up as well as it did; it's an excellent beer and am also glad that it is becoming more and more available...was even available for a short time here in Paris!

Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a dark mahogany colour with a tanned large bubbled head, that does not retain. A cola like appearance

S - Creamy chocolate and malt

T - Some nice creamy flavours up front with some chocolate and heavy vanilla. The finish is a little bitter. A tiny bit of coconut on the finish.

M - Medium body and medium carbonation. Quite smooth.

O - This is a very drinkable stout that is very moreish. Coconut is nearly non-existent though.
