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.

Serving type: can

Sample at VT Brewfest.

A-Pours a very dark brown. Head is a thin, brown froth.

S-Lovely, yummy coconut. I am an admitted coconut beer addict, so this aroma nailed it for me. Chocolatey, roasty and again, delectably coconutty.

T-The chocolate and cocoa and roast and coffee usher in the delicious coconut flavor. Coconut flesh and toasted husk. Boom.

M-Lighter than anticipated. I actually enjoy the light body here. I made multiple trips to Fiddlehead's tent for this so it's drinkable to me.

O-Delicious. One of the best beers I tried during my most recent Vermint trip. Coconut Porter! One of god's gifts to me.

Serving type: on-tap
