L: is very dark and black
S: is bitter coco and licorice and a faint coconut smell.
T:is a good porter clean tasting, spicyness and licorice. With a SOY sauce taste. Of you have ever had Thai dark soy sauce this is reminiscent of it. But it does not have a sweetened or toasted coconut flavor. It is good for the price point.

I really liked this beer. One of few I have to completely disagree with the ratings. Maybe people are thrown off by the coconut, but it's a solid porter, with a smooth, full mouth feel, and a well balanced coconut flavor in the finish.

Rated the smell low because I didn't get a lot of coconut on the nose.

A: Pours a dark brown color with a slight reddish tint around the edges when held to a light.
S: I mainly got black coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate or cocoa powder.
T: Follows the nose closely. Black coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate or cocoa powder. Hop bitterness mid tongue balances the beer. Dry on the palate and easy to drink. No harsh flavors here.
O: A solid Porter. There are better alternatives but this brew is still solid. Sadly I got no coconut flavor at all.
