Toasted Coconut Porter is a brown porter that’d be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

I was hoping to like this beer but not having much experience with coconut porters, the benchmark I used was porters (in general) and Window Seat by Baxter Brewing which is another coconut flavored American Porter which I did like.

Can marked "Canned APR/27/15", tasted on 6/13/15.

The look was not a deep as a typical porter. Smell retained a nutty, roast nose with a slight breeze of coconut. The taste was crisp and refreshing but lacked the bolder back that it should have. A very metallic note remained throughout drinking. The hint of coconut kept trying to peek up but primarily stayed back. Despite being a crisp drink, a moderate smooth body was apparent.

Given a 6-pack was purchased, I will end up finishing the rest but it will not be a beer that I buy again. I may instead give a couple to the neighbors.

A nice, clean porter with smooth mouthfeel and a coconut finish. Not too shabby for orange blossom brewing.

Poured from 12 oz can into a tall Pilsner glass. Nice head, short lasting. Nice brown color, sweet chocolate and coconut smell. First swallow is startling when the coconut kicks in, but from then on, this is a fine Porter. Mouth feel is smooth. Would really like to try this on tap--maybe Saturday while in Orlando.

This beer is AWFUL! It says it's a porter and that is a gigantic lie! It's not even beer let alone a porter! When I first cracked open a can of this 'beer' and poured it into a glass I had to do a double take because for a second I thought I had accidentally bought soda! It pours just like a can of root beer and has the brownish look of root beer as well. It's highly carbonated so there is no proper head on this porter just a bunch of bubbles. It also tastes like porter flavored soda, with not even a hint of coconut. I'm NEVER buying this beer again.
