Oskar Blues Brewing’s twist on the classic Irish porter takes the fusion of chocolate and coconut to record heights with its seasonal release, Death by Coconut. With a jet black pour topped by a frothy brown head that releases deep notes of dark chocolate and fresh, overarching coconut, the only death comes to any urge that resists the first sip. Intense flavors of chocolate sweetness and balancing malt roast flood the palate followed by a shattering blast of coconut that quickly tapers off, showing its reserved porter nature by not battering the taste buds in malt richness. Thankfully here in the Boulder Valley we don’t have to worry about falling coconuts but we do have plenty of other issues, a couple of which Oskar Blues needs your support in redressing. Come pick up a 4-pack of Death by Coconut and ask how to donate your points to a local cause today. Cheers!
