Poured out a dark, dark brown color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of roasted malt and a subtle coconut aroma. Good roasty flavor, mild coconut and some dark chocolate.

Pours a dark almost black brown with a rich tan head that fades quickly. Toffee aroma, a little burnt sugar, and some grain. Excellent balanced taste: dark cocoa, toasted coconut, burnt sugar, dark fruit, and a slight metallic tang. Mouth just a little thin. Flavors linger nicely. Well done!

A rich dark brown with a finger of foamy tan head that sticks to the glass, a bit. Aroma is roasted malts, earthy, Whoppers, mild coconut, and mocha, is a good description. In the flavor, it's not an overly sweet beer, but, balanced. The mild bitterness lingers and builds, a little bit. The coconut, mocha, and slight java, are undertones to the dark roasted malts, but definitely present and accounted for. The feel is fairly dry, below average carbonation, medium thin body. Overall, I prefer D.B.C., because it's massive in the coconut department, but this is an enjoyable brew.

First had poured from 12-oz. can, gift from brother, into faceted mug. Restrained in its ambition, but deft in its execution, my first beer from Hawaii is a modest but excellent porter.
