Coconut Porter brewed by Maui
Brewing Company - Lahaina, Hawaii
Coconut Porter is a classic robust porter spiced with all natural
toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy,
dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed
by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and
hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut
and hoppy spice to balance the finish.
Review from Beer Advocate(For more reviews of this beer:
Appearance: Canned carbonation is always something that blew my
mind, it poured 3 fingered being nice and tan. The head goes down
slowly and beautifully. This porter is completely black and it even
fills its corners with blackness. Carries a nice slow lacing.
Aromo: A nice chocolate and coffee with wood (might be a slight
alcohol though) comes through. Definitely not weak, but damn it
Taste: A chocolate presence definitely comes throughout. The
woodlike presence comes out smoky toasty. I feel like if they say
this a coconut taste then the taste is the body of the coconut
roasted adding a smokiness to this beer. The obvious coffee also
Mouthfeel: This comes amazingly creamy with an almost full body and
the carbonation comes through moderately. This creaminess comes
through as it was a Milk Stout and damn that's from a porter.
Overall: This definitely feels like a porter and damn does it taste
great. On the can its advertised that this won Gold in 2006 as a
Herb and Spice Beer and I could see how it did this. I admit I truly
can't taste the coconut, but damn does this beer taste great. I am
such a sucker for porters and this is obviously another one that I
have fallen in love with.
Maui Brewing Company
Maui Brewing craft brews are the only authentic Hawaiian beer
currently available on the mainland as 100% of the beers are brewed
and canned in Hawaii. With a strong commitment to the local economy,
and deep concern for the environment, MBC microbrews are packaged
with the most ecologically-friendly materials. Although cans and
bottles are both recyclable, bottles still break and may pose a risk
at beaches. The cans are manufactured on Oahu and designed by local
Maui artists and have the added bonus of protecting the beer in the
best possible manner - from both light and oxygen damage which can
seriously compromise the taste. Plastic rings are dangerous to
marine life and therefore, a unique, recyclable plastic carrying
device is used to hold the cans. The spent grain from beer
production is donated to local ranchers for cattle feed; and any
cans damaged in production are donated to the Maui Humane Society.
MBC purchased equipment from Maui Land & Pineapple, preserving a
piece of Hawaii's canning history.
Founder Garrett Marrero and his wife, Melanie, run a 7-barrel
brewpub at the Kahana location as well as the 25-barrel full
production brewery and canning facility in Lahaina. Maui Brewing Co.
is a truly local beer as 100% of their products are made in Hawaii
as opposed to other "Hawaiian" beers. Contact Garrett W. Marrero firstname.lastname@example.org
