4.47/5  rDev +10.1%

A: Poured a very deep brown with good carbonation and nice sirty white head

S: Plenty of coconut, roated malt and chocolate

T: A nice balanced flavor from beginning to end. Starts with a smooth coconut taste which brings out some chcolate, roasted malt and milky flavor. Not overly done on the coconut.

M: Nice, smooth and milky, good carbonation.

D: Oh yeah.

Another WA goody sent down from hopburster. You da man Greg.

22oz bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip glass.

A - Pourd a medium to dark brown with a medium tan head. Good retention left on the glass.

S - Chocolate dominates, then some coffee, carmel, vanilla, and coconut decide to show up.

T - Chocolate is really up fron here, followed by some vanilla, then finishes with some carmel-coconut flavors.

D - Light body, fizzy in the mouth, some hoppiness does come through.

O - Very easy drinking and flavorful.

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.

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.

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.
