This beer is worth the price of a plane ticket to get to the Big Island, where it’s only available on tap.

Roasty, smooth and perfectly pitch black. A slight hint of coconut which is included in the brewing process. Unlike most porters this remains jet black when held up to the light. Doesn’t taste burned, retains its sweet malt character.

This beer was Stella’s favorite of all the offerings at Kona’s brewpub in Kailua.
