COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of this island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that sends you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a Koko Brown, brewed with real toasted coconut, and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste. Available Winter/Spring Koko Brown pairs well with coconut and caramel flavors, such as Thai curries, BBQ meats and carne asada. Its refreshing nutty aroma makes for the perfect beer after a day on the water.

another fun beer from kona. Clear brown color with fluffy white head. Aroma is like chocolate cake topped with toasted coconut and maybe a little grass hops. Taste is sweet light coconut and malty. Nice light body. Can’t wait till the it is offered again next Spring.

Bottle at home. Pours clear deep amber with a small to medium off white head. The aroma is toasted and nutty with light citrussy notes. The flavour has profound coconut notes with light toasted and roasted notes. Vague hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow...the toasted coconut is a fantastic original addition to an already flavorful brown ale. Dark brown pour with a medium caramel head. Great nutty aroma with an excellent finish. Kona makes some great beers but this is my favorite of theirs.

BillWyce (940) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
From notes: Poured clear nut brown, with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Sweet toasted coconut aroma, with maybe a hint of caramel. Medium-bodied, medium-thickness. Nutty, caramelly flavor, with a roasty note of toasted coconut that shows in the finish. I liked this a lot, but found myself getting tired of it by the end of a case.

12 oz bottle. Reddish-brown pour with a light, white head. Toasted coconut dominates both the flavor and aroma. Medium-bodied and tasty. Very malty and easy to drink. Very happy with this brew.

Poured from bottle, medium brown in color with a nice tan head. Roasty nose with the coconut coming through nicely., giving it a sweet twist. Tasted like a brown ale, a bit sweet however. Being a brown fan, I thought this was a nice variation that worked well.

Not for me. The coconut didn’t do it. This smelled like a tanning lotion. The taste was just what the smell made me expect and the palate was very oily.

Poured into a pint glass. Brown to amber color and transparent. It had a finger of head, but it was quickly gone to surface covering. A slight nutty smell and then dominated by coconut and a little cocoa. It smells like dessert. Sweet, sweet and then some sweet coconut. Lighter body, low carbonation. I really liked the smell, but the coconut just overpowered everything in the taste. Too bad. About a third to half the coconut would make this a really winner and let the rest of the ale show through.
