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.
