Pours an almost black dark brown with a thick tan head that recedes quickly to a thin ring that leaves marginal lacing.
The aroma is dark roasted malts and only a touch of coconut. Chocolate joins the party in the flavor and the coconut is a bit more pronounced. The feel is pretty full for a porter, more like a stout. Overall better than I was expecting. Would buy again.

Best by date on the bottom of the can. Excellent artwork I may add. This a pricey porter nonetheless. I am tasting that coconut in here. Decent porter, but nothing to write home about. Cheers! B (85-89) score range

Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head which dissipates quickly with little lacing. Smells like an Irish dry stout initially until it warms up which increased the mocha scent with a hint of coconut. Taste follows the smell. Mouthfeel is good. A pleasant enough experience just lacking a bit of the heft that I associate with the best of this style. Not to be overly stereotypical but this is exactly what I'd expect from a Hawaiian brewery.

From can. On lighter side (of everything). Underlying coconut is pleasant on the nose. But this should have 'Light' added at end of name.

Pours black with a thick, two-finger head when great retention and a medium lacing.

The smell is coconut, dark malt, and a little milk chocolate.

The taste follows almost exactly with the addition of some coffee. The coconut doesn't overpower, but it's the major player.

The mouthfeel is medium carbonation and a bit thin, but not too bad for the low and.

Overall I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but I can see why this is popular.

Look - Pours a nice chocolate brown with a nice quarter finger peanut head. Good lacing, definitely can't see through this beer.

Smell - Definitely getting some toasted notes, coconuts and some coffee.

Taste - Flavor is toasted grains, coconuts and dark coffee. There is some coconut there, but not in a sweet/synthetic type of way. It's more on the subtle, baked coconut side.

Mouthfeel - Dry but also a nice crisp finish. A little bit higher carbonation then what I was expecting, which isn't bad at all.

Overall -This is quite a refreshing porter. Pretty standard toasted notes typical of porters, with a decent coconut backbone. I found it very drinkable and was impressed with the non-sweet coconut notes.
