The coconut aroma is pretty light, and the flavor of coconut does not overpower - which is nice. Some of these coconut beers are akin to drinking coppertone. The sweet, roasted malts and toasted coconut hints make this beer well rounded and delicious.

-Poured 12 0z. can into Heinzelmannchen pint glass, got nice 1.25" khaki head. Reviewing it as I try it.

-Very dark dark brown, orange edges around bottom. Not getting much coconut aromas, but it might be too cold.

-Ah, here it comes...and coconut come through in the flavor, as does the roasted malt, cocoa-coffee-ish, nuttiness. Still light
on the palate and clean. More, please!...great medium-light feel, great carbo level, leaving sweet lacing patterns on glass.

-Got 2 of these in a mix 6, wishing I'd got more....for a sunny, crisp Friday afternoon of 50F, this thing is perfect. From getting stongr as it sits.

-As good or better than I hoped, as are most the Catawba brews I've tried. If you like a nice toasty coconut/cocoa taste that's not sweet, definitely give this a try. Bottoms Up!

Appearance - Pours dark brown with nice tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Strings of lacing around the glass.

Aroma - Lots of toasted coconut and milk chocolate along with roasted malts. There is also a hint of coffee.

Taste - There is not as much coconut in the taste as was in the nose. Mostly roasted malts and chocolate, again there seems to be some coffee there as well. I was hoping for more coconut.

Feel - Medium bodied carbonation is a touch high tingles the tongue. smooth and rich.

Overall - A pretty good coconut porter nice flavors easy drinking only complaint is I would like a little more coconut in the taste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look - Black w/ some brown tones. Very thin head
Smell - Not as much coconut as I was hoping for. More roasted notes and chocolate then anything else.
Taste - Again, wasn't overly impressed w/ the coconut flavor...or lack there of I should say. That said, it's still tasty. Tons of chocolate and roasted malts. Some coffee notes as well as slight hints of coconut
Feel - Medium, rich, smooth

Overall - Not a whole lot of coconut flavor in this one. But a really nice tasting porter none-the-less.
