Overall

The Death By Coconut is a fantastic drinking experience. Its aroma is amazing and it tastes wonderful. With such a flavorful palate, it might seem like its feel should have more heft, but as this is a porter, it’s spot on. If you enjoy a roasty dark beer with coconut and chocolate, this one is a must.
