Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter

I got a can of Maui CoCoNut Porter in a trade as an extra a while back and boy am I glad he included it.
Slightly roasty nose with a lot of chocolate notes. Very inviting aroma. Initially a little bit of creamy roast, followed by some almost milky sweetness. Finished a little sweet as well. The toasted coconut adds some slight vanilla along with the milkiness and some sweetness, almost like lactose in a milk stout. Really interesting porter and quite good. The best part is the coconut flavors never taste like Malibu or anything like that and works really well with the roastiness of the porter.  Makes me wonder what a milk porter would taste like.
