Poured into HOTD tulip 12/18/11

A: Pours a very dark brown with about a half inch of off white/light brown head and not much lacing to speak of

S: It takes a bit of warming up for this porter to start releasing its aromas. Smells of sweet browned coconut, biscuity malts and some dark malts.

T: I would not be surprised if this beer is fermented with an English yeast, it has many characteristics of one. The coconut flavor is mild but quite nice and the dark malts add a nice roasty bready flavor as well

M: Meduim body with a perfect amount of carbonation and a nice hop finish before the beer ever becomes too sweet.

O: Enjoyed the beer but would have loved to have a bit more coconut flavor and aroma and a bit more dark malt intensity. That being said I love Black Raven and the direction they are going.

Thanks to ChrisPro for sharing this beer.

A - A very dark brown, almost black, beer that had a nice tannish head that had moderate retention.

S - Slightly roasted malts, undeniable coconut, chocolate. It's straightforward, and has enough going on that it smells solid.

T - Delivers on the coconut promise. It's not a coconut bomb per se, but it has a lot of coconut in there to go with some chocolate and slightly roasted malts. It's not horrible, but I'm not the biggest fan.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O - For a coconut beer, this is a nice little novelty. I'm not blown away by it, but I didn't mind drinking it and it went down easily.

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.
