This is my favorite beer to drink when I am on the beach in HI. I don’t know if it’s the atmosphere but they go down easy. Never think about drinking a porter on the beach on the mainland. Maybe I should. Great coconut and chocolate taste that goes down smooth

Black in color with minimal light penetration. There's a fingernail of beige on top. The aroma is of dark malt, mocha, and coconut. I'm tasting coconut and mocha. The mouth is very light and smooth considering how dark this appears.

Dark, brown, clear, with a sandy head.
Aromas of sweet chocolate, vanilla.
Mild chocolate notes, touch of coffee, with some sweetness, vanilla, medium body and carbonation, easy drinking, dry finish. Not much in the way of coconut though.
Well balanced porter, lightly roast without bitterness; great feel; very approachable and enjoyable any time of year.

The beer is very dark brown and had a thick foamy tan head. The beer smells sweet and a hint of coffee, reminded me of a sweet mocha drink. The taste is similar, dark coffee and a sweetness which assume is the coconut. The beer reminds me more of a stout than a porter.

Pours a nice dark brown color. The head is tan, 2 finger, and has good retention. There's some very nice lacing on the glass as the head dissipates.
The nose is fairly weak. Just very slight. Just a hint of mocha.
Taste - Interesting. I get the coconut, and then the mocha kicks in on the backside.
Decent body. Just about where I'd expect for such a beer. Nice carbonation feel in the back of my throat.
Solid and delicious stout. A pleasure to drink.

Pours a pitch black color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is excellent. Light roasted aroma with java and coconut. Light bodied but somewhat creamy at the end. Roasted malts, mocha java and coconut on the taste. Moderate carbonation. Decent beer.

Very nice coconut porter that would have been even better had the porter been slightly richer and creamier. Nice very dark brown, almost black color with some tan head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of roast coffee, a little chocolate and coconut. Tastes of dark roast coffee and chocolate - almost like a mocha coffee drink - along with some nice coconut notes, caramel, vanilla creaminess and malt. There was a little less smooth richness than I was expecting with a typical porter. Nice smooth mild mouthfeel, just wish it was a little more creamy. Good carbonation, actually a surprising amount that I normally wouldn't have expected for a porter.

Dark brown with a very slight red tone. I think the coffee and chocolate hints (the former more prominent than the later) come through, whereas the coconut was lacking. More carbonation than I expected. Overall a balanced, medium-bodied stout, but nothing special.
