Canned on 9/12/2011. Pours a dark brown body with a one finger high khaki head. Aroma is pretty standard for a porter. Roasted malts, light chocolate and coffee. Just a touch of the coconut. Flavor is kind of a let down. Bitter roasted malts with some dirty coffee. Almost no coconut presence. I know this wasn’t fresh, but I was excited to find this on a road trip. Pretty weak.

Dark chocolaty color, very foamy light brown head. Smell is traditional porter, a bit of espresso and coconut in it. Flavor starts a bit sour, but mellows a bit in the back of the mouth. I only pick up a hint of coconut, wish it was a bit stronger. Mouthfeel seems a bit bright for a porter, very carbonated. A good porter overall.

Deep deep chesnut color with what appears to be good clarity but cant really make it out. about a half finger of tan head settles out. Smells of asphault, dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee.

Medium bodied but lively carbonation breaks up the body making it feel a bit thinner. Burnt malts on the tip of the tongue along with dark chocolate flavors with a bit of licorice and anise. A little astringent on the back end and overall a lot of roasted flavors. Coconut comes through almost barely and in the form of a "burnt" coconut taste. really have to look for it which might be a good thing since i hated kona's coco brown. Goes down nice and easy though for such having so many robust and roasty flavors. A little messy at parts with the coconut flavor adding close to nothing but as a porter not bad. A little pricey but that might have to due with how far it had to travel to get to me.

Poured into a pint glass. Big thanks to marisatheyounger for this.

3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head with average retention and meager amounts of lacing.

2.5 S: Hmmm. The nose is quite disappointing. I was hoping for a duet between dark malts and coconut, but that isn't the case. The coconut doesn't really show up at all. The malts don't deliver much on complexity and don't add much to the aroma. The main smell is ashy burntness. Not much else going on. Really dry and in need a some sweet component.

3.5 T: The taste is a hell of a lot better than the nose. It's still quite ashy and burnt, but there's an additional (and welcomed) layer of toastiness and even something like dark chocolate. The toasted cococnut is much needed for balance and adds a sweet coconut fruitiness. Borderline 4.0.

3.5 M: Medium body. Perhaps a touch too much carbonation. Could be a lot creamier, but otherwise smooth.

3.5 D: This one doesn't really wow me, but it has a good enough taste to be worth the drink.
