Coming to you from the Southwest side of the state, it’s my first taste of Coconut Porter from Paw Paw brewing (aka 2 Paws) in Paw Paw Michigan. I’m a fan of porters, and I enjoy coconut porters – which are difficult to do the right way. Is this going to tickle my fancy or get my ire instead? Stay tuned to find out for sure!
Petoskey Brewing’s Robusta Nut is a Coconut Chocolate Porter that weighs in at 5.5%, which is fairly typical for a porter – where it attempts to stand out is by not only having flavors of coconut, but chocolate too. There are plenty of coconut porters on the market – and a lot of good ones here in Michigan, but I don’t know too many that attempt to weave chocolate into their flavor profile as well. How does it all hash out in the end? Stay tuned to find out!
