Beer Review: Harpoon Pilot Coconut Porter

Comments:  This special Pilot beer, allegedly only available at the Harpoon Brewery, was on tap at the Granary Tavern in Boston.  It seemed like it would be a unique beer, and it certainly was.  As expected for a porter, it was a deep dark brown, although surprisingly my pint had no head and actually the beer seemed very flat (perhaps a bad pour?).  I could only smell a faint hint of coconut, but it was definitely in the flavor along with a bitter dark chocolate taste and a velvety mouthfeel.  The porter seemed to be strong in alcohol and more like a strange cocktail than a beer in many ways.  An interesting beer experience, but not one that will go down as a favorite.

Comments:  This is a nice porter.  It’s a deep, chocolaty black with a thick, foamy head.  The mouthfeel is very smooth and the taste is sweet with hints of cocoa and coffee.  Seek this out!
