Pours an extremely dark brown with a tan colored head. No lacing whatsoever and and it looks very foamy.

Smell is tricky to describe. Definitely some coconut/roasted almond smell going on here but also some hints of vanilla and chocolate. Not a strong smell by any stretch of the imagination.

Kind of watery for a porter with a balanced flavor. Coconut taste seems a little overwhelmed even though the beer overall isn't particularly strong.

A: Pours a Dark Brown Black with a thin Tan head with pretty much no lacing.
S: Toasted malts with chocolate coffee and a hint of Coconut.
T: Very weak on the Coconut but a nice porter with toasted chocolate and coffee notes.
F: A light smooth porter.
O: Missing the Coconut but a good all round porter.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. The appearance is a burnt orange to amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is vanilla, malt and coconut. The taste is malt and grain with some coconut.
