Well I was at the store and I saw Maui's Coconut porter on the shelf and decided to get a 4 pack, as this was the inspiration for this Beer.
It is not really a clone, just while I was in Hawaii I tried it and enjoyed. So I wanted to make something similar.
Seeing it in the store, I thought I would compare the too.
Mine is on the right.
Appearance:- look very similar in color and head
Nose:- Mine has a little more coconut.
Mouth-feel:- Maui's has a little more body.
Taste :- Mine has a little more coconut, but as they warm up Maui's Coconut shines through more. they both have notes of chocolate
