Another great offering by Black Raven. Would be up there with the great breweries in the country if more people from around the country had the chance to try them.
I consider myself one of the fortunate few to live close enough to try them whenever I want - which is fairly often.
The Coco Jones Porter is their Tamerlane Brown Porter infused with coconut.
Sublime from the get-go. Appearance dark brown. Head nice brown tight foamy bubbles hang around long enough.
Taste is smooth, milky, coconut and chocolate notes. Bold taste makes for a nice sipping beer in spite of its moderate ABV at 5.9%.
Snagged my allotment of four very limited release bottles to go.
My very good fortune. (686 characters)

Bottle to tulip. In my haste to get a taste in before my baby woke, I didn't give it enough time to warm. Rectified with second pour, where the aroma and taste noticeably improved.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown transitioning to golden/reddish amber translucency at the edges. A quickly-dissipating mocha head with small bubbles stubbornly hanging on throughout. No lacing or legs.

S: Initially disappointing; but only because I find more chocolate on the nose than coconut. I am flashing back to that Hostess Sno Ball® chocolate cake/coconut combo, though.

T: Much like the nose. A balanced Porter through-and-through, but not a knockout, and with no standout qualities aside from the aforementioned balance, and a bit of chocolate [malts] with even less coconut. It's a bittersweet chocolate bar that promises coconut on the wrapper and leaves you wanting a bit more. At least it has alcohol—undetectable at 5.9% ABV.

M: Smooth with pleasant carbonation. A body of substance but far from thick. It just feels good.

I was hoping for more but this was a pleasant drink and I'm looking forward to tasting my other bottles in the future and seeing what I think of it then. The coconut came across as extremely mild to me tonight. Don't drink this one too cold if you get your hands on a bottle. (1,297 characters)

I hope this was an older bottle, because I got barely the slightest hint of coconut. Disappointing. (99 characters)

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with ruby notes and a one finger khaki head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, milk chocolate and light coconut. Flavor starts with subdued toasted malt, chocolate and light coconut, but the chocolate flavors develop nicely to a pleasant dark chocolate and coconut blend that really is reminiscent of a Mounds bar, finishing with a well balanced, sweet toasted malt, and coconut chocolate finish with a bit of hop bitterness. Nice medium body with good carbonation. A great, well balanced coconut porter, but it left me wishing for more malt and chocolate intensity to the flavor. I'd really like to see an imperial version of this one. Moderate, but well integrated flavor. An enjoyable porter with a deft hand with the coconut. (823 characters)
