Have a Drink Friday – Maui Brewing Company Coconut Hiwa Porter

We brought up Maui Brewing Company previously and mentioned the Coconut Hiwa Porter in passing, but this beer is probably MBC’s most famous and renowned beer.  A Porter previously only available in Maui and coveted by many, it was pretty exciting to finally get this deep in the middle of the mainland.  I would say the rest of the craft beer world has caught up to this Coconut Porter but it still has that Hawaiian historic X-factor that adds to it.  It’s also just a really solid beer.

Here’s what MBC says about their Coconut Hiwa Porter:

Our Coconut Porter is a classic robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut and hoppy spice to balance the finish.
