Poured from 12 oz can into shaker pint.

A: Pitch black with frothy 2 or 3 finger tan head. Fair amount of lacing.

S: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, and coconut.

T: Flavors are dominated by roasted malts with an almost smokey quality to them. Coconut is apparent but not as big as I was hoping for.

M: Full bodied without being heavy or thick. True to the porter style. Finish is quite dry.

O: A solid porter and the addition of coconut just makes it that much more enjoyable. I think this could easily be adapted to an oatmeal stout and barrel aged. Now that would be an amazing brew.

A: Black with a creamy brown head.

S: Toasted coconut, roasted malt, and dark chocolate in the nose.

T: Roasted malt, then coconut, dark chocolate and coffee in the finish. Really tasty.

M: Medium bodied and a bit smooth.

O: Definitely recommended. I like the blend of coconut and dark roasty flavors.

A - completely black, very thin tan head

S - strong roasted and chocolate, subtle sweet coconut notes

T - big roasted coconut and malty sweetness upfront, followed by chocolate and a faint hoppy bitterness at the end

M - medium-light in body

O - the nuttiness of the roasted coconut played well with the chocolate flavor. I think its a creative beer that everyone should try.
