Sampled at SAVOR 2015. Lots of coconut, really smooth and delicious. A lot like Maui's Imperial Coconut Porter, which is great.

Average base covered up by in-your-face coconut and thin, stale coffee. Quality mouthfeel though.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter glass

A- pours a dark brown, nearly opaque color, with a small creamy khaki colored head that retains for a while, eventually settling to just a thin film on top and rang around the edge

S- As soon as I opened the bottle, all I could saw was 'wow.' This is quite possibly the best smelling beer to date. I immediately get a huge whiff of toasted coconut & melted caramel, quickly followed by dark chocolate and fresh coffee. There is a toasted aspect that gives an aroma of toasted almonds, also picking up notes of sweet vanilla whipping cream. Many reviews stated that this smells like a liquid Almond Joy, and that's spot on

T- big blast of sweetness up front with lots of caramel, vanilla & toffee. The coconut quickly follows and is more prominent than most beers that use this ingredient. Milk chocolate and coffee flow underneath, providing a nice balance to the other ingredients. Nutty and earthy tones as it nears the finish with more herbal coffee on the linger

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a silky finish

O- I've had a few beers that have tried to capture the essence of coconut & chocolate, but none have packed in this much flavor, and at 6.5%. I don't want to finish the beers because I can't stop smelling it

This is one of the best smelling beers I have ever tried. The nose can best be described as a pour of liquid Almond Joy. A very strong coconut, chocolate, and coffee burst.

I was hoping for a fuller body, but I suppose that as a porter, it delivered true to style.

The flavor is good but a bit thin for my taste.

I wish the taste could match the nose.

S: like a decadent version of a mounds bar, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and tons and tons of coconut. T: same as the nose, but with coffee added. Tastes like it was steeped in a mound of coconut.

A heady stout in Florida? Yes, yes it is. Of the many samples I tried, this hardy porter stood out in the crowd. I always look for a beer that's going to give you a flavor punch and that's exactly what this beer delivers. Complex hints of vanilla, coconut and chocolate. Smooth finish and a nice nose. I was lucky to grab the last little sample of it. Another Funky Buddha gem.

On-tap at FB tap takeover event in Orlando. The aroma on this is wonderful. Deep rich coffee with a coconut background. Smooth as silk, creamy, excellent balance. I'll drink it whenever I can get it.

pored 22oz bottle into chalice.

A - Dark black coffee with a 2 finger cream colored head. Fades into a thick collar and leaves behind spots and splotches of lacing.

S - A wonderful aroma of steeping Italian espresso with freshly cut open coconut. Dark chocolates mingle with the roasted malts.

F - Starts off with the roasted malts and quickly moves into a coffee, espresso flavor. After it settles the sweet coconut drenched in dark chocolate (mounds bar!) comes in to entice the palate.

M - Smooth and creamy with a rich feel and excellent carbonation.

O - This is in my amazing zone because of how much I love coffee, and coconut covered in dark chocolate.

The flavor of this is amazing, so much coconut and coffee. However it is also sickeningly sweet. Could never drink this whole bomber. Even 3 of us didnt finish it

This is the best smelling beer I have ever come across... it's a massive coconut bomb with a coffee note taking the back seat, but still present. I find myself wishing it was more viscous and with a higher ABV, it is quite thin and would be the absolute perfect beer if it were heavier. For the style though, it is among the best I've had.

Summary:
Look: Medium to dark brown, slightly transparent, caramel head
Nose: Oh my god this is the best thing I have ever smelled in life.
Taste: Man, I wish this tasted as good as it smelled...
Feel: This is flat out too thin.

Good beer. If they did the same thing they did with "Wide Awake It's Morning" (the imperial version of MBCP) for this, it would be a world stopper.

12 oz Draft at Extreme Beer Fest Afterparty at The Merchant on 3/20/15

Look: Dark body, carmel-ish head
Smell: Deep coffee and coconut scents
Taste: Amazing roasty coffee and coconut flavors mix well with nutty dry porter flavors and smooth out with a touch of vanilla-ish flavor. Decadent!
Feel: Rich, almost more stout than porter
Overall: Maybe the best porter i've ever came across (and its my favorite style)

Pours a black color, with ember red edges and a decent, soon vanishing head.

Smells of ground coffee, coconut and mousse au chocolate big times. The coffee is especially well pronounced, while standing against the sweeter aromas of the beer, it reveals earth, toffee and hazelnuts. The nose offers a unique blend, which turns out to be less sweet than expected, with a well balanced infusion of bitter coffee, accentuated by roasted coconuts.

Has a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied beer.

Tastes of bitter coffee beans, accompanied by a metallic carbonation, increasing the tastes bitterness, while providing a vivid creaminess. Coconut and Nutella add a lot of character to the beer, which doesn't turn dessert-like at any point, due to the distinct coffee presence. It implements an earthy toffee flavor very effective though, which turns a tad metallic during the finish, reminding me of cold coffee.

Easy drinking beer, which got a decent complexity to it, turning out a bit too thin and metallic during the finish. Also the bitterness is a bit too harsh, compared to the weaker implemented sweeter flavors of the beer, initially promising a decent balance. The beers interaction between coffee, bitter chocolate and slightly wooden coconuts is very enjoyable though, while the brew remains recognizable as a Porter.

A - Poured a deep brown colour with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Massive sweet coconut up front with chocolate, roast and lighter coffee notes.

T - Liquid bounty bar! Sweet coconut and milk chocolate with some bitter roast. The finish is sweet milk chocolate and coconut that is slightly artificial tasting. A bit too sweet overall, but very good.

M - Medium body, somewhat creamy. Light carbonation.

If you like coconut, this beer is pretty good. If you LOVE coconut, this beer is amazing. If you don't like coconut, this beer is terrible.

Look- Similar to Victory at Sea

Smell- Just like a prop- coconut, brown sugar, molasses, chocolate amazingness

taste- Again, just as good as prop- followed the nose to a tee!

Feel- This beer had the perfect amount of carbonation, just thinner that I would have liked it to be

Overall- I am seeking this beer out. Probably a top 3 porter of all time for me.

Pours a nice midnight black with a 1/2 inch, quickly dissipating head.
Smell is incredible! nothing like it, huge coconut-coffee- faint chocolate is one of the best noses on a beer that I can remember - totally unique!
Slight bitterness from the coffee stands out - medium body. perfect hints of chocolate and coconut again - one of the few beers that is able to bring the coconut flavor out that I've ever tasted.
Soft and smooth finish, very drinkable.
This is well done, very well balanced brew - not over powering in any one taste-lots of depth and spice.

I really wanted to like this more, but sadly, it was a little more thin than I had anticipated.

A lot of this found its way around Tampa this last week. For good reasons too.
