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!
Reviewing beer, I try a lot of different types of beer. I feel like one of the most overpromised and under delivered beer flavors is peanut butter. Jaden James Monkey Butter Porter (aka Peanut Butter Porter) is one of the first porters that I’ve had that puts exactly what you get in the beer on it’s cans. Watch this video for my full rundown of one of Michigan’s best porters.
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!
As you can see from the title of this review, this was probably one of my favorite beers I tried from the 2017 Michigan Fall Beer Festival. I wasn’t sure if this had been previously released from Pigeon Hill but I was happy to see that they released this one in can form. The only other experience I’ve had so far with Pigeon Hill was during my Michigan Oktoberfest Extravaganza, and it ended up taking away top honors.

A 12% Imperial Porter you say?! Yes, I say. Perrin Brewing Company is at it again, and this time there ain’t no rules… It’s whopper of vanilla and bourbon. Can you handle this? Can I handle it!? I guess you’ll have to watch and find out!
I thought when I recently tried Atwater’s Java Vanilla Porter, that there probably wasn’t a vanilla porter out there that could beat it.
Well, my friends… A new contender has stepped up to the plate.
Gonzo’s Bigg Dogg Vanilla Porter is another reason why you should never count out the little guy. Watch my review to see which one I liked better!
