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.

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.

Can poured into glass. Almost jet black with dark tan head. The chocolate and vanilla are dominant in both aroma and taste. Coconut and malty flavors are more hidden. Luscious mouth feel. This makes a wonderful dessert beer - if you can imagine such a thing.
