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.
