I hope this was an older bottle, because I got barely the slightest hint of coconut. Disappointing.

Poured into HOTD tulip 12/18/11

A: Pours a very dark brown with about a half inch of off white/light brown head and not much lacing to speak of

S: It takes a bit of warming up for this porter to start releasing its aromas. Smells of sweet browned coconut, biscuity malts and some dark malts.

T: I would not be surprised if this beer is fermented with an English yeast, it has many characteristics of one. The coconut flavor is mild but quite nice and the dark malts add a nice roasty bready flavor as well

M: Meduim body with a perfect amount of carbonation and a nice hop finish before the beer ever becomes too sweet.

O: Enjoyed the beer but would have loved to have a bit more coconut flavor and aroma and a bit more dark malt intensity. That being said I love Black Raven and the direction they are going.
