Notes / Commercial Description:
Toasted Coconut Porter is a brown porter that’d be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

I was hoping to like this beer but not having much experience with coconut porters, the benchmark I used was porters (in general) and Window Seat by Baxter Brewing which is another coconut flavored American Porter which I did like.

Can marked "Canned APR/27/15", tasted on 6/13/15.

The look was not a deep as a typical porter. Smell retained a nutty, roast nose with a slight breeze of coconut. The taste was crisp and refreshing but lacked the bolder back that it should have. A very metallic note remained throughout drinking. The hint of coconut kept trying to peek up but primarily stayed back. Despite being a crisp drink, a moderate smooth body was apparent.

Given a 6-pack was purchased, I will end up finishing the rest but it will not be a beer that I buy again. I may instead give a couple to the neighbors.

Poured into a pint glass, Deep amber perhaps thought surely not dark. Smell is light caramel and perhaps a touch of coconut if you have the right mindset with warming. Taste follows suit with a lightly chewy texture. Lacking in classic porter character as for malt delivery by a longshot. A hot and humid market for sure, so tweak a recipe but don't just make shit up. An ejnoyable beer in a sense but comical as a porter.

A nice, clean porter with smooth mouthfeel and a coconut finish. Not too shabby for orange blossom brewing.

Poured from 12 oz can into a tall Pilsner glass. Nice head, short lasting. Nice brown color, sweet chocolate and coconut smell. First swallow is startling when the coconut kicks in, but from then on, this is a fine Porter. Mouth feel is smooth. Would really like to try this on tap--maybe Saturday while in Orlando.

On draft, pours as hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is wonderfully malty. Taste is a caramelly sweet malt-forward. There are interesting other flavors, but I'd have to be persuaded that coconut was one of them, perhaps toffee.
