    I've noticed Coconut Stout's/Porters have become more popular. What is your current favorite?

    Gotta go with Death By Coconut as well, not just a great coconut stout but a solid stout in general.

    Definitely have to bump the Oskar Blues here too. Death by Coconut. I didn't realize there were others out there in distribution.

    I think the only one I have had is Maui's coconut porter.

    I did a complete 180 and now I am 100% behind Oscar Blues Death by Coconut in the 12oz cans.
    Technically these are porters, but Coconut Porter from Broken Compass is quite good. Also, Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter is excellent as well.

    Prop '14, but honestly as far as pure coconut I'd still take a regular '13 BCBS and Toast some coconut and French press it, after 45 minutes of steeping, pure coconut goodness.

    I'd go with Funky Buddha Snowed In. I can't say I seek out coconut beers, but this one is worth finding.

    Prop '14 for me by a mile. Although I haven't had Snowed In which I hear is pretty damn good.

    I really enjoyed Death by Coconut. Maui CoConut porter was good as well, though less so.

    Kona's Koko Brown has coconut but is barely noticeable, and only after it's warmed to near room temp. Decent every day porter, but not so much coconut.
    Tiki Milk Stout by 4 Hands has a little more coconut, and is just okay. It came in their gift 3pk this year.
    Death By Coconut is much better.
    Of course Proprietor's 2013 and 2014 are king, but they are not available any more (unless trading/paying out the nose).

    I've tried it twice now, fresh, and not at fridge temp either. I struggle to taste much coconut in it. I think I still have a can left though so we'll see if maybe I just missed it the first 2 times.

    Creature Comforts Koko Buni (more coffee flavor than coconut). Also it is milk porter and not a stout but neither is Death by Coconut.

    BA Monsters Park with shaved coconut. No coconut beer will ever come close to how good this was fresh.

    Im surprised Coconut Resolute has not been thrown up. I know its been hard to come by, but from what Ive seen and heard its creating quite a buzz.
