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

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

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

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.
