Beautiful black pour with a light tan head, my expectation (from the name of the beer) was the aromas would feature coconut in some way.

Nope. No coconut that I can discern at all. The base beer is nice - good char, dark chocolate, but zero coconut. I don't care for coconut in "real life," but I love it in beer, so I'm disappointed it doesn't make an appearance in this.

Pours dark brown. Foamy, short, tan head fades fast.

Smells toasted coconut, roast malt, caramel and chocolate.

Tastes roast Malts, dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Followed by light earthiness and light coffee. Finish is Semi dry with coconut linger. Medium body and creamy lower carbonation.

A-pours black with a tan head with average retention
S-tons of coconut, cocoa, milk chocolate
T-more milk chocolate, burnt sugar, followed by lots of coconut, and lastly roasted coffee
M-medium bodied with average carbonation
O-Definitely lots of coconut, I feel like the porter in the background could be a bit more complex, but overall a pretty decent brew

The read makes you really expect something different. The smell follows through nicely. The taste however is severely lacking. Nothing there, no one home. Such a disappointment.

A bit of a disappointment. Not near as robust as I was thinking it was going to be. Pours dark with little or no head or lacing. The nose is mostly neutral, no really strong notes of anything. The taste and mouth feel are the same. When it was branded as "CoCoNut Porter" it was an entirely different beer.
