A Note on This Beer
Maui Brewing’s original Imperial Coconut Porter is a GABF Gold Medal winner and one of the Top 50 of its Style in the World on BeerAdvocate — it’s a pretty big deal!
But, know what fans across the internet are declaring an even bigger deal? Today’s Dolce variant.
Not only is Dolce far more limited than the O.G. version, but it’s positively steeped in rich cacao, toasted coconut, and creamy vanilla!
It’s like if you took a dark-chocolate Almond Joy, wrapped it in marshmallow, and roasted it into gooey s’mores decadence. Then, topped it with vanilla cream before indulging. Yum!
Sure, you can try to make that treat on your own sometime, but be forewarned — it’s really messy. And, it doesn’t come with today’s 9% ABV, or its gentle undertones of earthy spice that seem to waft in from the islands themselves.
So, grab this decadence in beer form while you can!

I liked it
Pure chocolate, caramel, coconut bliss. I actually started looking as plane tickets to Hawaii after finishing this bottle because I have to get more.
Much more tasty than the non-dolce iteration. The caramel comes through nicely, and the addition of salt smooths it out a bit. Might actually buy this one again if it comes up
Packed with coconut flavor, this one is just as described and does not disappoint
Sweet, coconut, vanilla
Flavors just weren't as pronounced as I was hoping for. Still a solid imperial porter on its own but didn't get the label flavors I hoped for.
Can definitely taste the roasted flavor of the coconut, also a very smooth and rich coconut flavor too it. Was surprised it still has a strong boozy taste after sitting for a few months
Coconut could have been more prominent
Was very curious to try this one with all the hype around it. Sweet vanilla/coconut aroma. Chocolate, caramel, roasty, sweet, light salt, heavy and a hint of coconut on the finish. Very enjoyable, would be a good one to share on a chilly night around a fire
