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.

The aroma is instant chocolate and coconut! The taste is unbelievable. Such a yummy and drinkable stout. A little high the carbonation, but loved it through and through! Great job on this one. We enjoyed this at the hidden gem, The Brick Oven Bistro in Sandusky on Dave's birthday trip.
