Quest for the Best Odd Beer Episode 1: Coconut Porter
With a tip of my glass to bourbonbastard, I am starting my own quest – for the best odd beer. That is, beer that uses ingredients beyond or instead of just water, barley and hops.
First up: Maui Brewing Company‘s Coconut Porter.
Price: $3.99 per can
Color: a lovely coffee brown
Aroma: malty coffee
First sip: smooth & delicious…coffee, dark chocolate & just-right bitterness
Aftertaste: here is where the coconut is! First sip notes softly carried to the end.
Overall: Enjoyable 12 oz. that I will buy again. The coconut is just a quick parting kiss, so I would recommend to my more traditional beer drinking friends. On the downside, this brew is only sold in single cans (in my area) and at roughly $24 for 6 cans…it won’t make it on bourbonbastard ‘s Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can (QBCBC) list.
