Best porter I have ever had. I usually can only drink 1 stout or porter per sitting, I drank 3 of these and was ordering another as the keg kicked. Tastes like toasted coconut, soooo good. Top 5 beers I have ever had, I can't wait for them to open up the brewery. I would say it tasted more like a stout then a porter. (318 characters)

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the higher end but appropriate, excellent drinkability. 4.5

Date: 02/28/2015
Type: 22oz. Bomber
Glass: Fiddlehead Teku
Vintage: End 2014 (?)

Pours a light black w/ brown hues, like cola, w/ a 1/2 finger off white head that leaves light lacing. Aromas of caramel, coconut, coffee, and some spices, mainly cinnamon. This literally smells like coffee poured over a fresh cinnamon bun, amazing! The flavor opens w/ coffee and quickly moves into light caramel malt sweetness, and closes w/ spices, coconut water, and enough hop bitterness to balance. Medium bodied and lush w/ appropriate carbonation. This one goes down in a flash! Do not share!

Overall, hands down the best beer I have had the pleasure of drinking so far in 2015. The aroma on this one is just mind boggling! Funky Buddha brought the funk like George Clinton on this one. (788 characters)

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. (139 characters)

Very delicious beer.

Pours a dark beer. Forms very little foam, some bubbles. Smell is a bit faint and hard to catch. Taste is amazing. Has vanilla, coconut, chocolate, and is overall sweet. It is a syrupy beer, and makes you very sticky. Definitively worth trying it. (269 characters)

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 (162 characters)

I really wanted to like this more, but sadly, it was a little more thin than I had anticipated. (95 characters)

12oz served in a snifter glass, on-tap at Funky Buddha in Oakland Park, Florida on 5/21/2014.

A- Dark brown body that is almost black, 1.5 finger offwhite head with good retention, and a medium collar remains even after significant time has passed. Occasional rings of lacing.

S- I can smell the coffee as soon as the bartender passed the glasses over the bar to me. This is a very coffee forward beer, with a lot of coconut character that made me wish Proprietor's had this much coconut. There is a maple syrup-like sweet character that evidently must be from the white chocolate and caramel combination. Very aromatic.

F- Incredibly complex and interesting. Espresso, coconut, maple syrup character that's presumably the white chocolate and caramel combination- it's sweet and tempered by the espresso bitterness. Some slight roast malt presence. No smokiness. The coconut is very strong in this and complements the other adjuncts very well.

M- Medium bodied for a porter; good carbonation. The coffee remains a bit stronger than I'd like in terms of drinkability, but I really don't mind that much. Finish is a nice sweet maple syrup-like finish that's tempered by cold black coffee bitterness.

O- Hell of a porter. Very complex, drinkable and interesting. Highly recommend getting a growler of this if you can. They weren't filling growlers of this to go, but if they were, I'd take a couple along with me on my vacation. (1,431 characters)

Big coffee and coconut smell. A bit less on flavor. Tastes awesome with Samoas Girl Scout Cookies. If this could be barrel aged, and the taste could match the smell, this would be world class. (192 characters)

A lot of this found its way around Tampa this last week. For good reasons too. (78 characters)

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. (1,340 characters)
