This is an interesting take on a style I love but it showed very little life with a very light coloring and little to no mountable head.

The scent was absent of coconut but a nice dry chocolate and Smokey barley aroma was easily detectable.

The flavor was mostly a smokey, roasted barley and a light touch of chocolate but there seemed no sweetness or coconut. The taste I did get was nice and easily drinkable.

The feel was exceptionally crisp and seemed a summer take on a porter I just wished the coconut would have been more evident.

3.51/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very dark amber/brown color with deep ruby highlights when held up to the light. Colorwise it is certainly a bit too light for a lorter methinks. Slightly off-white/tan head is about 1/2-2/3 of an inch thick when first poured. Settles to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass along with some slight bits of foam settling on the beer's surface. Pretty good lacing. Aromas of coconut, vanilla, a hint of cinnamon, and some caramel malt. The aromas need to be stronger overall though, to my nose there just wasn't much there. Flavors of vanilla and coconut along with what could be hints of chocolate and coffee followed by some caramel malt notes. The flavors do come more as the beer sits and warms up a bit. No real discernible hop flavors to be found here. Has a crisp, frothy and creamy, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Too thin bodied for a porter for sure. Not bad, but needs improvement.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottles dated best by Sept. 2013 consumed on 2 days in April 2013

Pours clear dark mahogany with a magnificent, durable, creamy tan head.
Leaves a splendid coating of lace.

Aroma: an appealing, sweet and fairly well-balanced mix of toasted coconut and malts with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. The taste is similar, being a bit more sweet than ideal.

Excellent creamy feel with good medium carbonation, but a tad too thin.

O: Well-done Thomas Creek.
