Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a brown color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of coconut, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of coconut, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and mouth feel. The metallic flavor, hopefully from wheat, was slightly off-putting.

3.69/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark brown to the point of being black with a two fingers worth of tan froth.

Aroma: Rich dark malts.

Taste: Starts with creamy dark malt that gives some bittersweet chocolate and day-old black coffee to the flavor. Hard to detect the toasted coconut but a well rounded flavor none-the-less. The finish is the highlight with a toffee and cream flavor leading to an aftertaste of long lingering coffee bitterness. About where it should be in terms of robustness for 6% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body with average carbonation and good drinkability.

Final Thoughts: While I admit myself a bit let down that Maui Brewing Coconut Porter didn't deliver on the 'coconut' part of its name, I am happy to say it did a great job on the 'porter' part. A good example of the American take on the style with big robustness for a moderate ABV. Would I drink it again? Sure.
