Appearance: With a nice bubble show, the beer pours translucent and tea colored with a two finger tan head; nice retention and a healthy smattering of lace

Smell: Dark bread, chocolate and coconut tones

Taste: Bread and chocolate forward with the coconut tones developing; nicely balanced from start to finish with just a bit of residual sweetness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Some previous ratings have complained that this beer compares unfavorably to others with twice the ABV; recognizing that this is not an imperial nor is it barrel-aged, I think it is just fine

Thanks, jheimbigner, for the opportunity

Very good packaging. Can has a old work feel and intrigues the eye. Looks are a dark ruby. Smells are mostly malt roasted. Tastes are balanced with the coco coming through. Sits nicely in the mouth. At 36 IBU, it keeps the chocolate from becoming sweet; a nice bittersweet.

My first from Black Raven so I went on their website and they seem to be a very accomplished brewer. So for that, they get extra hugs and the hope they get wider distribution.!

Solid black in color with a small tan head.
Smell is weak for a porter, hints of chocolate, coconut and coffee.
Taste is a bit underwhelming. Watery chocolate coconut starts off, with a slightly burnt malt taste towards the end. Not a bad flavor, just not particularly exciting.
Mouthfeel is especially disappointing, as this beer is quite light. Almost like a amber lager.
Theres much better "dessert" beers out there.

Very disappointing. Bought a sixer because I have enjoyed other coconut porters. This was weak in all senses of the word. Not rich in color, no nose, and no finish. Coconut was indistinguishable. My wife, who has aa better taster than me called it boring. Frankly, it looked and tasted like dark Mexican beer. In a blind test I would never in a million years think it was a craft beer. Skip this one and go for something out of Bellingham if you are looking for a Washington beer.
