Maui Brewing Liquid Breadfruit

Maui Brewing Liquid Breadfruit, originally uploaded by adambarhan.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head, rather foamy that reduces to a nice cap on top with some pretty nice lacing all around the glass.

S: Some light tropical fruit on the aroma, mostly passion fruit with a bit of lemon/lime citrus and some bready malt.

T: Not as fruity as the aroma, definitely a bit breadier. There is again a bit of passion fruit/papaya, but the citrus isn’t really there. A heavy dose of fresh bread comes through in the middle.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty clean.

O: Pretty good beer, a little fruitier on the flavor profile would have done it for me. was expecting something great here…

Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter

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
