Growler poured into 10 ounce Kentucky Bourbon Stout snifter.
A: A pretty nice looking porter. Moderate pour yields a one finger cream colored head that slowly recedes, leaving several soapy looking bubbles on top of the glass. Beer is jet black. Nice lacing left behind as I make my way through the pour.
S: How did they manage to cram so much coconut aroma into this beer? Nose is an intense amount of coconut up front. The pungency of coconut is insane, no other coconut beer I've experienced comes anywhere close. Other aromas include vanilla and the advertised white chocolate. Incredibly appealing nose. It smells as much like a confectioner's treat as beer.
T: Wow, the pungency of coconut on the nose carries over to the palate. Just a remarkable amount of coconut, a real brewing feat. Flavors are toasted coconut, white chocolate, and some backing roast. I know there is caramel in here, but I can't decide whether I'm tasting caramel or the toast of the coconut. Great either way.
M: In some ways, there is so much flavor packed into this beer that it seems like it should be carried by a thicker body. However, this is a porter after all, so the light to medium body is more appropriate than if this were billed as a stout. Moderate carbonation.
O: This is one of the most interesting dessert type beers I've had. I'm amazed how much coconut aroma and flavor they were able to impart. Fantastic beer for those with a sweet tooth.
Serving type: growler
