Dark brown where only the brightest of lights pass. Good webby lace from a modest head.

I get the same metallic smell (iron) as I did from the Maui IPA. Distracting.

A bit of a gimmicky beer. I like the coconut, but the porter is a bit pedestrian. It starts with some toasted (chocolate) malts. The swallow and finish bring forth the coconut. It's nice but a simple twist.

Dark brown approaching black. Full tan head with chunky lacing. Sweet nose, toasted coconut, vanilla, nutty malt. Carbonation compliments body well. Toasted astringency from coconut, sweet sasparilla, yam, and pine form a pleasantly dry and sweet brew.

Very dark, looks like a stout but with a thinner head. Smells like smoked coffee porter, no hint of coconut in the aroma. Slight coconut in the taste a little overwhelmed by the coffee and smoke flavor. Mouth feel is very nice for something shipped from the island to the east coast and sat in my fridge for a few weeks. I think this is a good beer to stash away for aging, the last one in the pack was better than the first and many weeks passed between tastings.
