A very dark brown with ruby highlights. A nice thick frothy head with big bubbles.

Aroma is deep deep coconut with hints or roasted chocolate. Like a ground dry mounds bar.

Taste is a little thin, I guess they is typical of a porter. Initially a light coconut flavor opening up to more roasted chocolate notes.

Good, but the coconut kinda disagrees.

Dark brown pour with a tall tan head that's quick to dissipate. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. Tastes like roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of coconut. A bit too light bodied than I'd expect from a porter, and for a coconut porter it's quite shy on the coconuts. But aside from that, a very good beer.

Out of a 12 oz. can into my Snorkel tulip; canned on 09/09/15
Poured a dark brown with a quickly disappearing light khaki head, leaves small islands of lacing.
Aromas of chocolate, coffee and of course toasted coconut.
A nice porter with roasted malts up front with hints of cocoa and coffee with a underlying taste of that toasted coconut and little bitterness and the back of tongue on the finish.
Light mouth feel on this one.
Overall, a decent porter; very easy to drink and delivers on what it says it is.

Deep black roasty porter that exhibits only a hint of coconut. Very enjoyable and dissapointing at the same time. Seems there was a recipe change. More coconut, please!
Interesting, I am having this for the second time and there is a great aroma and flavor of roasted coconut, just as it should be. I am adjusting my scoring accordingly.
