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.

On tap at the Basin Pub in Bushnell's Basin, NY.

Pours a dark black, with a foamy, off-white head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells like a roasty german chocolate cake- shredded coconut, creamy chocolate, and roasted malt.

A lot of people around me said they couldn't pick out the coconut- I could pick it out very clearly. The coconut tastes like it's the shredded kind, not the toasted kind, which is fine. Some good chocolatey flavors, rich and dense, with roasted malt and espresso bitterness.

Medium bodied, but fairly full for a porter. Starts sweet and finishes bitter. Very drinkable.

Another big hit from Oskar Blues, they're knocking it out of the park for me tonight.
