Picked up a can at PCC.

Overall, this was a pretty solid porter. The coconut shows up in the nose, along with some coffee. The coconut didn't really show up in the taste, however. The beer ended up being a little thin, but I definitely liked it overall.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: light black bodied beer with 2 fingers of tan colored head. Lacing clings to side of glass then slides down the side and dissappears into the thin cap.

Smell: roast coffee, cocoa / bakers cocoa and fresh coconuts!

Taste: starts things off with a mild bitterness and moderate roastiness that tastes like coffee. Milk chocolates and coconut make this beer have a pleasantly sweet finish. Simple yet effective!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really smooth and easy drinking porter. This beer would be better if it was a little thicker porter, but I am always saying that!

Overall: I have drank this beer many times and I thought that I had already reviewed it, but I didnt. I love craft beer in a can and its a tasty beer as well! If you like your porters the coconut in this beer gives this beer a nice unique twist that you must try!

Thanks again to Big Grocery for the can at Perennial!

A - Pours a dark brown color, tan head, thin collar, spotty lace.

S - Whole cream, light chocolate, light coconut, roasted malts. Not quite as much coconut as I was expecting, but still good.

T - Roasted dark chocolate, cream, coconut, malts, toasted bready notes. Very creamy and a good amount of chocolate and roast. Finish is dark chocolate and malts.

M - Medium body, good carbonation, creamy finish.

O - A nice porter, but I was actually hoping for more. That said, I would drink this often if it was available in cans around my area. I love Porter's, and the coconuts are just about the perfect level (perhaps a tad more would be nice). Good stuff.

Pours a two finger khaki head that fades to thin layer, leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Smell: hints of chocolate and flavor is burnt chocolate and coconut. $5.50 for a 12oz can on Norwegian Cruise Line Pride of America off Hawaii. From my notes 5/30.

Can to pint glass.

A warm shade of mahogany with very little head and poor retention.

Fascinating nose. South American coffee, grain husks, rich roastiness, light vanilla, and hazelnut sweetness. Not picking up much coconut yet, but the nose shows promise that this could be a tasty porter.

Medium-roast coffee, hazelnut, vanilla extract, malt bitterness, roast, and a hint of coconut in the middle-to-end. Finishes with some astringent bitterness and coconut milk sweetness. Simple, and a little attenuated, but a pretty nice flavored porter.

A little thin for the style, but the carbonation doesn’t disappoint. Perhaps it’s accentuated because the body doesn’t quite hold up.

Fun little brew. Perhaps an appropriate summer porter. Nothing artificial about it. Has great character. Pick up a can.

Can enjoyed on 9/24/11 at Freshcraft.

A - Black. Fairly thin looking. Has a quick-to-rise toffee colored head made up of fine foaming bubbles. No lace.

S - This is a nice porter. Chocolate and roasted barley with notes of vanilla.

T - Sweet and roasty. At first I was thinking vanilla was the additive but eventually the coconut did make itself known. In any case, the coconut didn't taste fresh - it was more like a pre-dried and shredded sweetened coconut. Milk chocolate rounds things out.

M - Medium bodied.

O - This is a fun beer to have access to. Definitely a sweet one though full of flavors and aromas of not only coconut but also sweet vanilla bean and chocolate.

Poured from a 12oz can into a stout glass. Sent by lokieman as an extra.

A: Pours a very dark brown with an off-white, slightly browned head. Decent retention with some sticky lacing.

S: Hot cocoa, coffee roast, condensed milk, maybe a hint of coconut.

T: Weak chocolate and metallic roast. A bit milky, some mild coconut, slight hop leaf. Solvent fuzzy flavor in the finish.

M: A little carbonation. Between thin and medium-bodied.

O: Drinkable, but poorly executed.
