This beer may set the standard for a coconut Porter.

Appearance: A dark, rich pour. I could not see light through my glass, though I was in a darker area of the restaurant. Nice lacing was present as the beer disappeared. Little head...1/16" or so.

Aroma: Not much of the coconut, but a wonderful chocolate malt

Mouthfeel: A solid mouthfeel, not thick, not thin, just a well-rounded presence

Taste: Wow, really good. The addition of coconut was noticed, but the chocolate came over the top.

Coco Loco is one fine porter, and an excellent beer for a cool evening.

Serving type: on-tap

4.4/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

on-tap at the brewery

appearance: served in a shaker pint - dark brown body, thick and creamy tan cap

smell: chocolate, sweet roasted malt, vanilla bean

taste: Really nice porter - velvety, chocolate cake, vanilla bean, residual sweetness presumably from the coconut, some dry roasted malt. Impressed - not usually one to reach for a porter, but this is quality stuff

mouthfeel: creamy, rich, quaffable

overall: solid

Serving type: on-tap

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a NoDa pint glass at the grand opening of the tap room.

A: This porter pours black with ruby highlights and two fingers of mocha colored head. Lacing is exceptional.

S: Roasted malts dominate the nose which is complemented with a subtle sweetness.

T: Roasty black coffee and earthy hops hit your palate first followed by sweet chocolate and toasted coconut in the finish. This is easily the best coconut porter I have ever had.

M: Medium carbonation and medium-heavy body with a silky smooth texture.

O: As mentioned above, this is the best coconut porter I have ever had. It doesn't dominate the flavor of the beer but you know it's there and it balances perfectly with the chocolate and roasted flavors.

4.28/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dimpled head of a little over a finger, peppered with larger bubbles which create the uneven surface, however retention is very good and the lacing forms an intricate and full weave around the glass sides. Black and fully opaque liquid, some yellow to a dilute orange at the glass bottom and rims, populated with a horde of microcosmic bubbles loosely floating upwards. Very steady roast to the nose without pushing into acrid or bitter territory, dark chocolate powder, coffee, peanut brittle, the coconut almost gets lost in the shuffle, the hops punch throw decisively, pretzel dough, salt, grasses and more sour grain notes, appears to want correct posture and plenty of zip in your nostrils over sweetly soaking in. Medium-bodied, the carbonation is energetic yet fine, lends creaminess to the overall texture. Dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla powder and butterscotch come to the fore before any coconut, here the roast is dialed back, cutting down on coffee accents. Some raw, uncooked nuttiness. You get mixed dark fruits in trade off for the citric element. The hops less obtrusive here and just add pep and lift to the finish as well as inner mouth perfume. While dry, keeps you sipping.

Serving type: growler
