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)

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)

Very weak coconut, more prominent on the finish. Medium bodied, odd nose. A decent overall Porter. (100 characters)
