16 oz can. Pours brown with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is subdued at first, but opens up - dark chocolate, sweet coconut and a little roast.

The flavor is sweet chocolate and coconut with some roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth velvety carbonation.

Overall, nice sweet chocolatey coconut porter. A little too sweet for me. (393 characters)

I'm a sucker for a coconut beer. This one has me sucked in. Big chocolate with bountiful coconut. Definitely a dry Irish porter base. Dry yet full. Nice easy drinking big flavored beer. This is a keeper. (203 characters)

Dark black color, small tan head, faded quickly to a thin film. Nice sweet coconut, coffee and chocolate aromas. The taste was super, with coconut flavor so immediately present, followed by the chocolate, then coffee, and back to coconut, very tasty. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with nice carbonation. Overall, this was a very nice beer, me likey! (352 characters)

Certainly good, but not hype-worthy outstanding, despite a "2-can per customer" limit at the brewery. (101 characters)

Very large can poured into a taster. Stovepipe? Black body with a small khaki head. Smells of almost all coconut. Some chocolate. Coconut taste is equally strong. Chocolate second. I taste some beer back there. Some caramel malt and roasted malt. Fairly thin. Medium low carbonation. Heavy coconut, as expected. Tastes pretty good, but maybe tough to drink a lot of it. (369 characters)
