Typical brown aroma. Malty brown sugar and caramel.Tinge of coconut. Appearance is dark red/brown. White head. Medium palate. Taste is malty chocolate coconut. Reminds me of German chocolate cake. I donít care for browns, but this one is descent.

jcr (2286) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Can. Cola brown body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coconut, nuts. Light chocolate, biscuit, metal. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Coconut flavor is nicely integrated into the roasted malts. Sweet coconut trumps bitter hops. Easy drinking.

blackflag321 (561) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Can poured to shaker. Nice, medium head lasting just long enough. Dark brown, persistent carbonation. Sweet, dark chocolate and coconut dominant on initial taste, then I got just sweet coconut. Felt good on the palate, but I didn't enjoy the flavors.

12oz Can. Thanks Sean! Not at all funky, but the gentle coconut breeze reminds me of New Glarus Sour Brown, but then moves into distinct German Chocolate cake and bulk coconut from the co-op. Flavors are good and balanced. This is a little more coconut forward than many coconut beers Iíve had, but the brown really provides a solid base. Having the sweetened coconut over the toasted gives this more of a candy-like composition, which is different and enjoyable. A nice beer.

Poured from a can to a pint class. The beer has a nice tan head that stays in the glass for a bit. Once the head subsides the aroma comes through. Although I found the aroma to be lacking I found the taste to be smooth and a bit sweet from the coconut. The coconut flavor was very well hidden, but contributed to the sweetness of the brown ale. All in all a nice beer to drink in the heat of the summer or cool of the winter months.

Can to pint glass. Foamy beige head with a cola body. Aromas are dusty and earthy... a bit of chocolate, too. Flavor is decent, but pretty middle of the road. A very good brown, but not a particularly interesting one. Coconut is impossible to detect.
