Mahogany brown where light passes through the edge of the glass. Lasting, but small, head. Slippery blanketing lace which leaves the glass relatively barren of permanent bubbles.

Chalky, cocoa aroma. Attractive but unassuming.

The flavor features the cocoa first and foremost, but I also detect a light coconut which adds to the taste. Moderate to lighter body with a lower than expected carbonation. Short aftertaste but it is full of flavor.

The appearance was dark brown capped with a finger’s worth of tan head that quickly dies off. No lacing. The smell started off with a light bitter to roasty coffee bean and added a light coconut and cocoa blend. The taste was mainly roasty with a nice ample bitter and then the sweet coconut to balance. There’s no aftertaste but it had a quick semi-dry roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonated as an American Porter, delicate roast takes over as it runs over my tongue. Overall, American Porter with coconut, well, it sure is fitting and taking it one step further - Hawaiian styled porter.

Black/brown with a thick (very thick!) cream-colored head. Smells like coconut and vanilla. Sweet cream, hint of roast. Taste is sweet coconut and vanilla, getting some rich chocolate, even some bitter coffee. The sweetness is balanced, not overwhelming. Smooth and fairly light body, but also slick.

Growler: Poured a black color porter with medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma consist of notes of vanilla and chocolate notes with hints of hazelnut. Taste is a nice but intense mix of hazelnut, vanilla and chocolate notes with some flavors resembling tiramisu. Body is about average with creamy texture and good carbonation. Nice but flavors are extreme and end up being overwhelming.

Great unique Porter. Full flavours of vanilla, coconut & chocolate. A little thin on the mouthfeel but went great with the pizza at the restaurant attached to the brewery. Definitely worth a try!
