On draft, pours a dark brown almost black color with a very full active light brown head.

The smell is roast, vanilla, lots of coconut and milk chocolate, sweet on the nostrils. The flavor reminds me of a Mounds bar. The coconut is really in charge here, dark chocolate, roasted malts. This is unbelievably well balanced and put together. Smooth easy finish.

This is just downright delicious and drinkable. No gimmick, you can drink this over and over.

On tap at ChurchKey for 2014 DCBW. Snifter glass.

A: Pours blackish-brown with a finger of beautiful dense and well-formed dark brown head. Big swaths of lacing and excellent retention. Hard to imagine a better looking porter. (4.75)

S: Loads of toasted coconut up front, ample melted white chocolate and dark coffee, fair amount of roastiness. Definitely not for the faint of coconut. Smells appealing, but is really, really heavy on the coconut. (4.5)

T: Dark roastiness blends nicely with toasted coconut, which is again very prominent. Light to medium dose of coffee and charred roastiness which imparts a slight bite. A touch of sweetness adds to the palate, which unfortunately becomes a bit cloying over the course of a glass. (4.25)

M: Medium-light, fuzzy carbonation and medium body. Mouth coating and a bit sticky on the lips. (4.25)

O: Very nice, but the huge flavors and sweetness really limit the drinkability. Would be good in 4oz as after dinner digestif along with a dessert that pairs well with coconut. (4)

Poured on tap at Churchkey DC into a snifter glass.

A good mix of black/brown walnut colors for the body, quite solid and dark. Tan thick collar actually and lots of spotty lacing while drinking.

Great chewy creamy and rich coconut nose on this thing. Ripping with cream and vanilla tones, lots of coffee richness and espresso like roast. Light toasty notes and aromas of roasted malt, along with ripping beans of coffee. This thing is downright crazy, something a barrista would make you than you would find at a beer bar.

Palate brings good solid richness. Creamed coconut all over. Vanilla. Espresso and dark chocolate. Mellow piping roasted grains with coffee warmth all over. Some almost feeling tasting lactose sweetness on the finish strangely. Mouthfeel comes with good cream tones at first, but descends into sweet and thin cola very quickly with repeated sips.

Really interesting character to these beers, but they also seem to lack some memory of the base ingredients sometimes. A worthy beer worth trying though for sure, but missing much "beer" like memory and character, but then that's what makes it so impressive.
