I think it was successful!

The coconut is present in the nose then on the palate... and subtle.

The WLP007 Dry English Ale is a good compliment to the porter.

Thanks for the recipe! I made this a few months ago and it turned out very good. I bought a fresh coconut, split it and cut it in to half inch chunks and threw it in the smoker. My LHBS did not have the White Labs in stock so I went with an equivalent smack pack. The beer turned out great. Everyone seems to really love it and says its not too smokey though. Next time I would add less wood to the smoker so I could cook the coconut longer with out adding the amount of smokey flavor.
