3.35/5 rDev -17.1%
A: Dark brown to black with a ruby tinge only when held to the light, and a 3 finger creamy dark chocolate head that fades fast leaving no trace of lace.
S: Coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, mocha. Not getting the coconut.
T: Dark chocolate, coffee, coconut comes in several times, the first like coconut water, after a brief pause like fresh green coconut, the kind you only get in Thailand or some tropical destination. Slight metallic note. Not getting the coconut on the second sip.
M: Medium body, little to no carbonation.
O: A decent porter lacking carbonation, lacking coconut taste in my opinion, but a great label on the can and appealing idea. At moments I really get the coconut, and other moments I search for it and don’t find it.

Poured into shaker pint glass from the can.
A: Deep, rich brown pour with a finger of dark brown head that fades quickly leaving no lacing behind.
S: Chocolate, roasted barely, and a subtle sweetness and nuttiness.
T: Lots of roast, some smokiness, light chocolate and underlying sweet coconut. Coconut is very subtle and blends with the nuttiness and malt well.
M: Well carbonated, maybe a tad high. Smooth mouth feel with some lingering sweetness.
O: Very good representation of a style that I'd like to see more of. Could use a bit more coconut, but I'd rather it be subtle than overdone and cloying. This is a very palatable beer and I am glad I was able to pick up a 6er.

On-tap at Barley's Taproom, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin tan head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts are present in the nose along with hints of coconuts.
T: The taste has flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla and coconuts.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and flavorful. I really liked it and would have no problem drinking several of them in one sitting.
