Quick question: when I've entered this into a recipe calculator, it's coming out much darker than a "normal" porter. I'm happy to make a non-conforming beer, but I wanted to make sure this was right before I bought my ingredients.

When I first put this recipe together in the original Beersmith. it transferred the 30-60 SRM for a Robust Porter over with the recipe into Beersmith 2.

although the BJCP guidelines are 22-35 SRM.

I really like this recipe just brewed it again myself waiting for it to carb up properly.
will take pics in a day or two

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
