Maybe it's the association in the name, but if anyone who's eaten a Bounty chocolate bar is able to tuck into Tumut River's chocolate coconut porter and not imagine they're consuming one in liquid form, I doff my cap.
Aromas of desiccated coconut are dominant, coming wrapped up in chocolate (and with a cola like layer in the mix too). Once it hits your palate, however, you might be surprised to find it's not as full-bodied or creamy as those aromas would have you expect. Indeed, it's relatively lean - like a traditional porter, in fact – suggesting the brewers nailed their brief on every level.
