Pours a dark brown, almost black hue with a two-finger brown head into my glass.

Wow. A great mix of chocolate, vanilla and toasted coconut in the nose. Reminds me a bit of a girl scout samoa cookie.

Starts off with cocoa, which gives way to the toasted coconut with a good touch of vanilla bean in the background.

The vanilla and toasted coconut combine for a "nutty" aftertaste.

Is it just me or would this make an excellent dessert beer? I'm not sold on the price ($12.99 is steep for a 5.5% porter) but the taste alone is inspiring. Makes me wonder. What if they bump up the gravity and kick up the toasted coconut part? That would rule. (649 characters)

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Dark brown. Black in the glass, but transparent at the edges. Decent cream head.
Smell - Lots of vanilla. Overwhelmed by vanilla. Traces of chocolate and coconut. More chocolate than coconut.

Taste - Bitter roasted malt. Still a lot of vanilla. Coconut is a little lost. Bitter roasted malt in the finish.

Mouthfeel - It's super thin. Medium light, objectively, but too thin for the style. I realize it's just a porter, but still.

Overall - Pretty tasty, despite being too light. More richness would support a good flavor base. (587 characters)
