Orange Blossom "Toasted Coconut Porter"
Orange Blossom Pilsner LLC - Orlando, Florida USA
Porter (ABV 5.25%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]


Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced steadily, down to a thin film and large collar with good streaky lacing.

The aroma was kind of sweet with a definite lactose sugar scent with some roasted grain malts and a doughy yeast and had notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and a very, very light hint of coconut.

The taste was lightly malty and a tad sweet with a decent chocolate presence early on, and then became slightly milky with a does of coffee, a bit of vanilla and a hardly noticeable hint of coconut at the finish. The flavor was short lived and faded very quickly from the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and rather watery in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall this brew was tasty, but rather thin for a Porter. Although I believe calling it Toasted Coconut is kind of redundant, as it is barely noticeable in the taste or the aroma...
