Oskar Blues Brewery Death By Coconut (6.5%)

Death By CoconutI think I may be in love.
This little can of “Irish Porter” is full of toasted coconut, vanilla and rich creamy chocolate.
In a way I don’t need to say anything more than that.
This is a beer that pours an impenetrable black with a cappuccino head and smells of vanilla pods and chocolate, a beer that has a thick chewy molasses malt, rich with treacle and digestive biscuits, a little wood smoke and some sticky honey.
The hops are brown and orange autumnal leaf litter, some maple syrup and a splash of orange juice.
But the beauty in this beer comes from the coconut, the beautifully crunchy dry and toasty coconut that works with the creamiest body you can imagine – so creamy in fact that I’d guess at lactose being involved in here – that makes the beer something above the rest.
Yes, I’m in love.
