Maui Brewing CoCoNut PorTeR

Pours ruby black (yeah, I wrote that...) with a wicked stiff tan dome of a head. Wow, fantastic head to be honest! Aroma is strong of nutty toasted malt & ashy. This is a malty beer with strong notes of coconut as the name implies, but I also get some hops as well. When It's cold I get a bit of a metallic flavor, but as it warms up, that goes away. (And I really wonder how much of that is psychosomatic.) Definite caramel, nuts, & toasty coconut wrapped up in a lightly sweet porter.

Deep into this beer I get a creamy butter nuance that really adds depth to the flavor profile. Complex yet so smooth, sticky on the lips, and clinging to the glass. This is a really well made beer!
This beer is a medium bodied full-flavored porter and very enjoyable. And I really like that it's in a can, which is perfect for picnics and boating. I would absolutely buy this again. Tasted from the can @ 55.1F.
