Fiddlehead brewing out of Vermont is doing nothing but one-offs other than their base IPA

Here is there coconut porter which I fell in love with

A- Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that sticks around to chat for a while

S- Lots of coconut and lactose in the nose along with some chocolate

T- So good! Coconuts kills it and the vanilla/cocoa/roasted malts balance everything perfectly

M- Light, but its a porter not a stout. SO BACK OFF!!

O- This is better than Three Hour Tour GASP!

Enjoyed from a modern times tulip. Can dated 5/19/14 (4 months)

a- Pours a watery brown that settles darker in the glass. Massive mocha cream colored head. Frothy. Yeasty. Milkshake like.

s- toasted coconut, soft milk chocolate.

t/m/o- I am not a fan of coconut, so bear that in mind. Soft coconut over milk chocolate...and then a fairly big off putting metallic finish. the feel is a bit watery and thin, but has that porter char to identify the style. Not my thing at all. The coconut is mellow enough that I could dig it, but not a full can...but this metallic finish with the light coconut puts it over the edge for me.
