CoCoNut Porter

Thanks go out to BA…for the opportunity to try this one. 355 mL can as pictured in the BA db.
Pour is a jet black with some brownish highlights and a good deal of mocha/coffee head. The head fades to give a lovely, tight, espresso like film which is quite thick and beautifully formed. Some lace.
Very smooth but not in a thick way. Quite light in the mouth but has good presence. Simply balanced porter with good sweetness but very well balanced. The beer has a toasty nature to it and a residual sweetness but it is not at all slick or clingy. The sweetness is not recognizable to me as a coconut element, but there is something a little different there. Definite a nd pronounced chocolate malt; milk rather than dark.
Really nice brew and the can is a bonus. Great drinkability and very moreish. A sixer of this on the golf course/beach etc. would go down very nicely.
