Twelve ounce can.

A: Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights under a solid 1" thick mocha head which lingers before settling to a thin cap and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Roast, malts, mild chocolate, very faint coconut (could be power of suggestion) and vanilla.

T: Dark bittersweet chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts with a hint of toasted coconut on warming.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy, roasty finish.

O: Expecting lots more coconut here, but still a decent porter.

I wanted to drink some taste of the islands that I have been to several times because I love COCONUT. This was a great porter. Creamy and rich, but just one problem. It didn't taste like coconut very much. I was looking forward to some good coconut taste because it's hard to find any coconut beer. The other great coconut beer that was brewed by Goose Island Bourbon County Stout w/ Coconut is only limited release and only in Chicago! I've seen people selling bottles of that or $100!
Overall taste- This is a great beer that after it warms a little has just a tad of coconut after taste
but instead of just putting more into what it says on the label and picture into the actual taste a lot more people would buy this niche beer.

I poured a can into a pint glass.

Appearance- Dark brown color with two fingers worth of tan head. Loads of foamy lacing.

Smell- Roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate.

Taste- Roasted malt flavor with notes of chocolate and toffee. Tiniest hint of coconut.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied and smooth.

Overall- Overall a pretty good beer, but I was a little disappointed in this. I was expecting more coconut flavor from a beer with "coconut" in it's name.
