Here's more info from the brewery.
Press Release: Coco Jones Coconut Porter now available in six pack cans.
Redmond, WA - On December 2nd Coco Jones Coconut Porter will be landing in brand new six-pack 12oz cans. This beer has a storied history at Black Raven. It was first brewed back in 2009 as a variant of our Tamerlane Brown Porter, infused with toasted coconut. When customers went cuckoo for Coco, we decided to enter it in the World Beer Cup where it won a gold medal (category: herb/spiced beer) in 2010. Over the ensuing years it was brewed as a seasonal release and at the end of last year, we decided offer it as a year-round release in 22oz bottles and draft. It will join Trickster IPA as our second 12oz can offering.
About the beer:
Coco Jones unites the rich caramel and chocolate malt flavors of a traditional brown porter with beautifully toasted coconut. We painstakingly infuse the beer with fair-trade coconut that has been delicately toasted to bring out a rich and nutty flavor. This infusion is done through a combination of soaking the coconut and recirculating the beer through the coconut. The result is a well-balanced, toasted coconut flavor that melds with the smooth chocolate and roast flavors contributed by the malts.
ABV: 5.6% IBU: 34
