Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter

I had wanted to try this one for a long time, but always passed it up for something else. Well today I decided to go for it. I didn’t regret it. I really liked this beer. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I didn’t know if it would be super coconut-y or not. Well ladies and gentlemen, the coconut works in a porter. It doesn’t come through as clearly as you would think. It mixes in with the aroma of roasted malt and chocolate and adds a slightly toasted coconut-y aroma. It was almost indistinguishable in the flavor, except that I think it brought out the roasty malts a little more. It also gave it a little bit of a creamy texture. The body was relatively light as well. This could be a beer you would have more than one of. I give it 4 out of 5 proper pints.
