    Probly Prop 13, but it has been over a year since trying this. Who likes Almond Joy? I think I would rather eat one of these along with a nice $2 stout instead of trying to track down another big $20 coconut stout. Mmmmmmmounds.

    Prop 13 & Snowed In, neck and neck for #1. Both amazing.
    Nooner 10 clear #2.
    Hawaiian Speedy and DBC very close for #3.

    There's a local coconut stout here in Indianapolis that I really like, Scarlet Lane's "Dorian Stout with Coconut". Got some great news today that they will start bottling it for the first time next month. Was hoping for 6 packs, but looks like it will be bombers. If any of you coconut fans (like myself) are passing through Indy starting next month I'd recommend grabbing one.

    Only one i've had is maui coconut porter, wasn't overly impressed by it, other than a lil coconut on the nose i found it to be a bit of an after thought, not a bad beer though

    Funny hearing everyone raving about the death by coconut, I was not a fan at all. It was a stovepipe can and I'm pretty sure it was fresh.. Oh well... I haven't had the Prop 14 yet, have a few in the cooler and I'm hoping that will hit the button on the coconut.

    The only one I've had so far is Crystal Ball's Coconut Porter, which was really good. Eager to find more coconut stouts/porters. I haven't been able to find Death By Coconut around here except by the case in like one store, but I don't like to buy a case of something I've never had before. I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for that and some others mentioned in this thread.

    Maui Coco Porter for me. Overall its a slightly above average beer, but it reminds me of slurping them down while kicking back on Kaanapali beach... so it gets a big psychological boost.

    I love dbc, no rules and last snow, don't care for Hawaiian speedway at all. But oddly enough my favorite was actually coconut delight by lickinghole creek, which is a bourbon barrel quad that tastes just like an almond joy. Excited to crack my coconut resolute though!!!

    Maui Brewing Coconut Porter gets my vote, but it's the only one I've had. Either way, it reminds me of sitting on the lanai in Kihei, so it's a winner in my books.

    Antead Coconut.

    Death by coconut is solid, Last snow was quite a bit better, Maui is not as good. I was underwhelmed by westbrook 4th, and either coconut prop stands up to near to ANTEAD. I was quite disappointed with coconut hunter by 18th street.

    I know some of those are porters and I know there's a difference, but whatever.

    Hate to say it, but I never had one. As I peruse this site, I can see some supposed favorites so I guess I should just randomly select one and hope for the best unless someone can convince me to give a certain one my first try.

    Thanks. Cheers.

    There are a lot of us who believe there is no difference whatsoever between a stout and porter. Plenty of threads out there on that topic as well...

    Yesterday I had a Marz Community Brewing coconut stout on draught. I thought it was a fantastic, easy drinking stout though the coconut was really in the background.

    No Rules & Westbrook 4th Anniv are great...I liked Last snow, but the coconut flavor tasted artificial to me..have a Coconut ANTEAD, Hawaiian Speedway & Coconut Resolute in my cellar that need to be consumed as well

    Likely does not count, but figured I'd mention it anyway.... Had Hardywood Park's Christmas Morning randallized through coconut at The Answer Brewpub. Tasted like a liquid Mounds bar. Just crazy phenomenal. I fear that it has ruined me for everything else coconut.

    Snowed In by a long shot... Prop 13' close second but I had this a year ago vs fresh so maybe that would have affected it.

    Have a Nooner 10 at home that needs some taste testing so we will see.
