I like the taste but dislike the smell. I normally don’t like dark beers, but this is delightful. Not too strong for a dark beet wimp like myself. Not hoppy. No unpleasant aftertaste. I like it.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Battleship. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is of malts, cocoa, coconut, and some roasty toastiness. Taste is of roasted malts, infused coconut, brown sugar, and a slight bitterness. Lighter body. Leaves a slightly spoiled coconut and malt finish. Nothing great here.

Definitely can smell the coconut! Not a bad brew from the islands! Would love to try it on a hot summer's day and see if it goes down better!

Growler. Pours a clear cola brown with a very thick light tan head - the growler I got fizzed like champagne, so have a towel handy. Malty aroma has an overtone of coconut, wood and cloves. Malty core of the flavor supports woody clove and coconut notes, a touch of sweetness and a hint of caramel. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, if not firm. Go koko-nuts!

**I might be resenting this bottle a bit on spec due to the cold, bitter winter that’s going on right now.
Fresh bottle. Pours muddy brown with quarter inch head. Aroma is great - that toasted coconut, some cocoa/caramel. Taste is creamy coconut, roasted malt and some nuttiness on the end. All elements show up and nothing is overpowering. Very smooth.

12 ounce bottle from jdb288. A dark brown pour that has a one plus finger of head. An aroma of earth and coconut. First sip is coconut with big malts that are cocoa. For the most part this is a coconut beer and it is a pretty tasty offering.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: pours a thin creamy head that recedes slowly with nice lacing. Color is mostly clear brown with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: toasted coconut dominates the aroma, pick up a little bread dough as well, but only a hint of hops.
Mouthfeel: between light and medium bodied, quite carbonated with a dry finish.
Flavor: toasted coconut blends with medium roasted barley malt, quite bready flavor. Some mild earthy hops and a little warming alcohol in the swallow.
Overall: nicely crafted brew and certainly a unique offering. Worthy trying.
