glass: nonic

Poured vigorously into a wide nonic glass. The color is a muddy brown with a thick and fizzy, mocha-colored head that quickly dissipated leaving a flat appearance to the beer. Impressive initially, unsatisfactory after.

Right from the pour a rich chocolate, mocha aroma permeated from the glass. Once settled a noticeable coconut is present along with floral hops and a touch of alcohol.

First sip and although a light coconut is detected, it's quickly overpowered by roasted cocoa nibs and a significant floral and drying hops presence. Pretty darn hardy, it's thick yet very crisp and carbonated. Finishes somewhat dry and sits like a brick in the stomach. Resiny almost, giving off a perception of metal. More like a brown than a porter.

A unique brew but it needs to be taken down a notch in almost every way except the addition of coconut. The alcohol is also too noticeable for 6%.
