I was in search of this beer for awhile and was excited to find it in LA. This is a fine porter but where is the coconut?

I get mostly milk chocolate,and java with if anything a slight minty note...it tastes great but I was expecting some coconut to this.

Body is medium to full....nice and creamy. texture..very full flavored but no coconut notes..

Pour a dark deep brown with a frothy tan head....

Terrific. Just terrific. Though I don't smell much of coconut (intentional?) I do sense a hint of that roasted, toasted bite at the end. The mouthfeel isn't too tacky, or tacky at all. Its mellow, but full. Reminds me of Olde Engine Oil, though much more sedated. In a good - in a great way. One things for sure, I'll be coming back for more. Highly recommended.

Can > Pint Glas

A - Rich brown black with two fingers of khaki foamy head, thick lacing.
S - Massive roasted oats and malt, a little earthy mineral traces, very little of the coconut is present here.
T - Flavor is packed with a ton of roasted malt flavors, a hint of smoke, more of that mineral trace coming through, and definitely a toasted almond and coconut spread out evenly through your palate.
M - Surprsingly smooth, not overly rich or sweet.
O - Excellent use of coconut here, wish I could pick up more in the aroma, but the flavor is wonderful

T-bad tasting porter , just not a fan of coconut , tad dry on the swallow

MF-pop like carbonation , feels full bodied

Ov-poor beer , bad porter , should be a one & done
