Wow. Really wonderful toasted coconut flavored with a nice chocolate coffee presence. Man I thought this would be good, but the is awesome. Really tasty brew.

Okay. Not a fan of Noda; this beer is not well rounded in the sense that the finish is very dry and leaves the coconut flavor left to be desired.

Canned 11/18

Solid porter. Little light, a bit bitter on the aftertaste for me which hides the coconut sweetness. Would definitely drink again though. Love the pint cans.

A: Pours black with two fingers of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with good lacing.

S: Roasted malts with sweet cocoa and chocolate along with some vanilla and coconut. Simple, but nice.

T: Roasted malts here as well with cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. There is a light charred flavor and bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium-thick body with lowish carbonation, this beer is pretty drinkable but has a lingering stickiness.

O: An enjoyable beer, overall. Not terribly complex, but tasty with nice coconut and chocolate flavors/aromas.

For a non-BA porter this is awesome. Dark beer. Decent tan colored head. Smell is slightly smoky chocolate. Medium body. Lots of chocolate, upfront hops with a little coconut. Ends with a dark roasted malt. Snappy, pretty cleansing, finish of pleasant bitterness. I like this one!
