Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with ruby notes and a one finger khaki head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, milk chocolate and light coconut. Flavor starts with subdued toasted malt, chocolate and light coconut, but the chocolate flavors develop nicely to a pleasant dark chocolate and coconut blend that really is reminiscent of a Mounds bar, finishing with a well balanced, sweet toasted malt, and coconut chocolate finish with a bit of hop bitterness. Nice medium body with good carbonation. A great, well balanced coconut porter, but it left me wishing for more malt and chocolate intensity to the flavor. I'd really like to see an imperial version of this one. Moderate, but well integrated flavor. An enjoyable porter with a deft hand with the coconut.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a bit of haze and a finger of frothy tan foam. Rather light for a porter.

Smell: lightly roasty with a nice chocolate and coconut element. I really like it.

Taste: fresh coconut right up front with a bit of toastiness and caramel underneath. Very dessert-like and satisfying.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: one of the best coconut porters I've had. This really strikes a balance between the coconut and the roasty, toasty porter elements.

Pours out dark brown almost black in color with a fluffy white head. Chocolate and brown ale flavors. Lighter mouthfeel. Not getting much coconut, but it's not missed. Pretty good.

A: Poured a very deep brown with good carbonation and nice sirty white head

S: Plenty of coconut, roated malt and chocolate

T: A nice balanced flavor from beginning to end. Starts with a smooth coconut taste which brings out some chcolate, roasted malt and milky flavor. Not overly done on the coconut.

M: Nice, smooth and milky, good carbonation.

D: Oh yeah.

Another WA goody sent down from hopburster. You da man Greg.

22oz bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip glass.

A - Pourd a medium to dark brown with a medium tan head. Good retention left on the glass.

S - Chocolate dominates, then some coffee, carmel, vanilla, and coconut decide to show up.

T - Chocolate is really up fron here, followed by some vanilla, then finishes with some carmel-coconut flavors.

D - Light body, fizzy in the mouth, some hoppiness does come through.

O - Very easy drinking and flavorful.

Thanks to ChrisPro for sharing this beer.

A - A very dark brown, almost black, beer that had a nice tannish head that had moderate retention.

S - Slightly roasted malts, undeniable coconut, chocolate. It's straightforward, and has enough going on that it smells solid.

T - Delivers on the coconut promise. It's not a coconut bomb per se, but it has a lot of coconut in there to go with some chocolate and slightly roasted malts. It's not horrible, but I'm not the biggest fan.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O - For a coconut beer, this is a nice little novelty. I'm not blown away by it, but I didn't mind drinking it and it went down easily.

12oz can served in a tulip. Canned on 07/06/17. I've had this so many times, but never reviewed it. Some leftovers after my son's birthday party gives me the opportunity.

Pours dark brown with a smallish head and not much carbonation. Smell is coconut, coffee, and plain old roastiness.

Taste is more coconut (clear, but not overwhelming). Moderately sweet, some coffee and again the roast.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick and slightly sticky. Overall, I'd say it's one of the better porters in the state (but there's not really a ton of competition).
