Creature Comforts Koko Buni Review

Name: Creature Comforts Koko Buni
Style: Porter
ABV: 6.5%

The other Creature Comforts beer, which I got in my Georgia craft beer package, is one that goes by the name of Koko Buni. It's a porter that's made with coconut and Ethiopian coffee beans. I did some digging on this beer and many people have compared this to Death By Coconut from Oskar Blues though I'll make that call myself.

Appearance - Pitch black color with no carbonation.The head takes on a thin brown look and the lacing left behind is nice and plentiful.

Aroma - Coconut, coffee grounds and chocolate malts with some light lactose notes. I'm also getting some bitter and floral hops in here too.

Taste - Chocolate malts and coffee grounds start things off upfront, with the latter lingering throughout the palate. The middle opens up to some lactose, coconut and light vanilla notes, while the back end of the palate finishes things off with more coconut & coffee grounds, plus some mild bitter & floral hops.

I don't see how many people think this is like Death by Coconut. It's less coconut-centric and more toasty in terms of flavor, plus the addition of lactose sets it apart further. With that said, it's still a very good beer and while it probably doesn't have the wide appeal that Death by Coconut has, this one is most certainly worth checking out should you get the chance.

Creature Comforts Koko Buni - 8.5/10
