Can poured into stone glass.

Pours a nice deep black with hints of very dark red. Nose has some roast and chocolate, not much coconut. Taste has slight coconut, mainly roast and a cream sensation similar to a milk stout with slight bitter chocolate. Reminds me of a good milk stout and/but certainly quite delicious for a porter.

Poured a dark, dark brown with a light brown, frothy head that slowly reduces to a thin ring. Lacing is retained around the glass. Smells of chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, and some oak. The coconut is not that dominant which is what I was expecting. Taste is similar to the aroma; roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body with a nice mouthfeel. Goes down smooth and leaves the lips a bit sticky in the end. Overall, a good porter but was left wanting more.

CoCoNut Porter
12 oz. can
Canned 012114 jet ink on the bottom of the can
Served in an 8 oz. hotel glass

I picked up a 4 pack of cans this afternoon at a convenience store in Kauai.

This beer pours a jet black, opaque in appearance with a khaki colored head on top. I get whiffs of malts and sugary sweetness in the nose.

This porter has a nice mouthfeel to it. Dark roasted malts with hints of espresso, chocolate and cocoa. I taste some sugary sweetness with a pleasant toasted coconut profile. There is a mini hop snap on the finish that provides a mini bite.

Picked this up as part of a mixed six on the recommendation of my beer guru, who always steers me right. Excellent looking beer with a very interesting smell, you get the hint of coconut with the smoke, interesting mix. Taste is also surprising, very tasty. Not a big coconut fan, not a big smoke fan in my beer, but it works for me. I was almost surprised how much I like this beer. Very good beer that is very much worth a try because it is very unique, tasty, and easy to drink.

Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and two fingers of tan head with good retention. Nice lacing too. Smells malty and sweet with a hint of toasted coconut, reminds me of some milk stouts I've had. Taste follows with some black malt with coffee, followed by some malty sweetness and hints of coconut. Really well done, not overpowering at all. Mouthfeel is probably the low point for me, a little too fizzy. Overall an outstanding beer.
