12oz bottled 05/30/19 (2 months ago) poured into a tulip pint glass at fridge temp 5.75% ABV 22 IBU. The beer pours dense dark brown with mahogany highlights and mocha colored head. The head recedes to a fat ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is as advertised with chocolate and coconut, but I also get some coffee and caramel. The taste is semisweet with coconut in the lead and the chocolate, coffee and roasty flavors competing for second place. The coconut is a touch artificial. Bitterness is mild. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, very good. Looks & aroma are world class. I'm not a big coconut fan, so I could have used a touch less of that and more chocolate and roast malt. Do not pass on this one if you like coconut.

A: Dark black brown in color with a light tan head on top.

S: Rich smooth chocolate and coconut. A lot softer and more aromatic smell than I was expecting. Like a liquid mounds bar.

T: A touch of booze with a light roasted character followed by milk chocolate, and coconut. The flavor is light, but the coconut is a long linger.

M: Medium in body with a light and airy feel, and a sweet smoothness. Although it does come across as a little too light for the style, it somehow works for this one.

O: Overall quite a tasy brew.

Bottle reads 5.75% ABV into a pint glass
Pour is pretty nice head is a bit fizzy which settles to nothing rather quickly with a slight mocha ring. Fairly dark shade almost pitch black. Smells of vanilla and toasted coconut sweetness milky sugar and some cocoa nibs. Wow I am impressed they got so much flavor it almost taste like a mounds chocolate bar full of milk chocolate and creamy coconut filling. Body is pretty nice not too watery and each sip is a treat very creamy.

Overall had to send an update to the bros I have no idea why this is labeled a porter when it clearly is a milk stout. Very balanced and sweet I wish I bought more than one :(

So lactose! So chocolate! So effing coconut! Literally, it's like drinking a Mounds bar, or an Almond Joy, minus the almond. Or the joy, for that matter – this shit's kinda blech. Also almost foamed over the top of the bottle when I opened it, so that's a kinda dick move. Oh man, seriously, that coconut and chocolate just sit on your tongue for like, minutes after you swallow! Ratings-wise, I put this squarely in the category of beers that I can finish, but would rather not have to (aside from I hate wasting a beer), and certainly won't try to again.

It's dark black with a deep tan head that isn't going to stick around too long. There is a spicy smell, and the chocolate, with just a hint of anise, comes to the forefront. The taste is strongly coconut with chocolate playing backup. Overall enjoyable, though I might be slightly biased against a high score due to a personal dislike of coconut. It is certainly strong and toasty, and if you are a fan of that particular drupe, you should enjoy this.

Pitch black with a small tan head and spotty lace that doesn't stick. Huge notes of cocoa powder, roast and coconut. Notes of dry cocoa powder, coconut, roasted malt, cream and sugar. Flirts with a medium body, very smooth and clean. Very drinkable. Just an all around fantastic sweet stout with huge flavors.
