I saw TCP on tap at a local bar and wanted to try it. This stuff pretty good?

This beer did turn out great
Has a nice deep color
With a nice chocolate / Toasted coconut aroma
Tastes like a bit like a almond joy bar, it has a nutty flavor and roasted notes, the coconut is a nice flavor on the back end.
The toasting of the coconut brings out a nice roasted toasted flavor which is not overpowering and adds to the great balance of flavors.
I was surprised that it also brought out a great chocolaty aroma and flavor

I am modifying my brew rig these days and this one is right up there as a first brew after fine tuning :)

Sweet deal. I may have to brew something like this within the coming weeks.

So I just finished bottling this recipe today and have to say that I am really excited about it. The sample I tasted was amazing, there was a great chocolate nose and the toasted coconut really comes through in the finish. I ended up using about 24oz of toasted coconut in my 5.5 gallon batch (almost double the original) and I think the amount of coconut aroma/flavor was perfect.

Also I didn't notice much loss due to the coconut absorbing the beer like the original poster, was happy to see that :rockin:

I'll post up results after it has sat in the bottles for a while.

This is a great recipe
I can wait to hear your results
I will be brewing this again some time in the near future

Have you guys noticed the coconut flavor and aroma weakening over time? I had this coconut porter in keg for 6 weeks and the coconut flavor is all but gone.
Just wondering what others experiences are.

I made 10 gallons of this and drank the first keg then let the other sit for a while while I served another beer in between.
Even after a few months in a keg it still had a good coconut aroma and taste but it was defiantly weaker than when it was fresh.
