look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The beer poured blackish brown in color with a light tan head crowning the pour.

Smell - The nose was composed largely of browned coconut. The rum was not detectable.

Taste - The was a good amount of coconut taste initially. It was not overwhelming or artificial. The rum was light, which was a good thing, since the beer was not made to taste like paint thinner. Lightly sweet, the beer finished with dark roasted malts.

Mouthfeel - The beer seemed thin and had very noticeable carbonation.

Overall - It was not an elite coconut porter, but was better than most.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

The appearance is black with some brown around the edges. Like a really dark cola color.

The aroma is big with spiced rum, coconut, chocolate malt sweetness and some roasted malt notes.

The taste follows the nose with a punch of rum spice along with coconut, bitter chocolate and roast malt coming through.

The palate is medium with a clean finish that reminds me of soda. Has a bit of a tingle on the finish that lingers nicely.

Overall this is another really solid imperial porter from tyranena.

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark cola brown body, nearly black, nice one finger offwhite head, good retention, bits of splotchy lacing all about. Looks good. Smells good too, with a nice chocolate malt presence, slightly nutty with a touch of toasted coconut and sweet rum. Brown sugar. Flavour essentially follows, with a nice mellow coconut presence on the backend. Rum is in good harmony with the rest of the flavour profile, which is more or less a big porter- slight nuttiness, milk chocolate, touch of roast. A moderately sweet beer. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, slight nutty and coconut finish. A tasty, balanced barrel aged beer with just enough coconut to make it interesting.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Dark coffee brown with a 2.5 finger tan head. Excellent retention that leaves a fat collar and good amounts of lacing on my glass. Aroma is heavy on dark chocolate with some rum soaked coconut cake blending with roasted malt. It starts off semi sweet with a coconut chocolate cake that has been soaking in rum. It is a porter with cola and roasted malt flavors. It is quite delicious, subtle rum and coconut, and one of Tyranena's better flavor combinations. Great carbonation for the style, smooth and very silky mouthfeel that is medium in body. This is one of my top Tyranena BGW beers!

Like always, I am left wanting a little more from a Tyranena beer. Especially the barrel character could always be a little better in their beers. But that said, the coconut was subtle and much better integrated than some other local coconut beers I have had.
