I was in search of this beer for awhile and was excited to find it in LA. This is a fine porter but where is the coconut?

I get mostly milk chocolate,and java with if anything a slight minty note...it tastes great but I was expecting some coconut to this.

Body is medium to full....nice and creamy. texture..very full flavored but no coconut notes..

Pour a dark deep brown with a frothy tan head....

Terrific. Just terrific. Though I don't smell much of coconut (intentional?) I do sense a hint of that roasted, toasted bite at the end. The mouthfeel isn't too tacky, or tacky at all. Its mellow, but full. Reminds me of Olde Engine Oil, though much more sedated. In a good - in a great way. One things for sure, I'll be coming back for more. Highly recommended.

Can > Pint Glas

A - Rich brown black with two fingers of khaki foamy head, thick lacing.
S - Massive roasted oats and malt, a little earthy mineral traces, very little of the coconut is present here.
T - Flavor is packed with a ton of roasted malt flavors, a hint of smoke, more of that mineral trace coming through, and definitely a toasted almond and coconut spread out evenly through your palate.
M - Surprsingly smooth, not overly rich or sweet.
O - Excellent use of coconut here, wish I could pick up more in the aroma, but the flavor is wonderful

12 fl oz. can, with canned on aloha date 01/06/2014 printed on the bottom of the can. My first encounter with this beer and this brewery, generously provided as an extra from Texan 956. Excited to have this beer; the premise sounds lovely.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a dark milk chocolate brown; nearly opaque in the glass with some cola color showing near the edges. Two fingers of creamy khaki-chocolate head with some nice scattered lacing. Head is very fully and creamy. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is pretty standard for the style, but still nice. Not really pulling any distinct coconut aromas from this. Mostly all milk chocolate, lactose / cream, mild toffee / marshmallow fluff, and dark barley / coffee roast. Smells nice, but it could be better.

T - Taste follows the nose - creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, cream, lactose sugars. Still not pulling any distinct coconut out of this, but it sure is delicious. Light to moderate bitterness / roast.

M - The feel is silky smooth, fluffy, and creamy. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. A very lovely texture, and dangerously drinkable.

Overall, a delicious beer, but I clearly wouldn't know this was brewed with actual coconut without being told. As far as porters go however, the beer is delicious, and I would absolutely have this again if it was available to me. More coconut wouldn't hurt though, just sayin.

Maui Brewing CoCoNut Porter ---4/5.

Meh.

For a beer that runs over $9 for a 4 pack, i was expecting this to blow me away. It didn't.

It's about a middle of the road porter. Not much going on. Nothing there to positively distinguish itself from others in its price range.

I got Zero coconut hints, aromas, or flavor. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

The mouthfeel is light and the flavor is very subdued in a bland way.

Not a fan, especially for the price.
