Coffee dominates the flavor over the other adjuncts. I personally would have preferred more coconut, or chocolate, but overall an above average porter

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick consistency. there was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored head that lasted an average amount of time. pretty good lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of coconut, roasted malt, chocolate, and some coffee.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of chocolate (more pronounced as you go along), a lot of coconut, mild hops (mostly in the finish), a tinge of coffee, and a lot of roasted malt. A smooth and sweet flavor that gets better as you go along. The chocolate and coconut mix well together giving a good balance to the taste.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a silky smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An incredibly solid porter all around. Well worth a try.

Poured a black body with minimal head and no lace along with an aroma that is mostly a harsh, burnt malt aroma. The beer itself is better than aroma as it's a smooth, almost lactic beer with minimal coconut (more like coconut milk) sweetness and the coffee notes are mild (but do lead to dry finish), and has a mostly chocolate sweetness to it. For how bad the different ingredients could have gone they work well and it's a well-rounded beer.
