Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A:Pours a deep dark brown color, with a large beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass. Surprised the oils from the coconut does not kill the head
S: The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, a little coconut.
T: The taste starts out with a rich black coffee flavor followed by background flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla and a touch of coconut. The malt character is hearty and the hops presence is mild but both are on-target for the style and provide a good balance. The coconut flavor is a bit more subdued than I had anticipated, but it’s a nice complementary flavor in the beer. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good variation of style, this is one of my favorite Porters.
Serving type: can poured in a Tuliop
