12 oz bottle. Pours a medium brown with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is light chocolate, and wow, nice coconut character really sitting pretty, gives some perception of barrel. Slight biscuit with some fruity accents. Flavor starts with the cocoa again but quickly gives way to coconut, wow even more barrel like from that. Some light doughy and cookie notes that sit very nicely with the light roast and sweet finish. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Excellent lightly complex but very drinkable brown ale.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small head. Smells of sweet coconut, malts, and leaves. Tastes of roasted nuts, lager, grasses, and coconut. A little too sweet in there for me.

Bottle. Pours amber with a beige head. Sweet and toasty, with caramel, and lighter chocolate notes. Not bad.

Tap @ The Pony Bar, NYC. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are coconut, caramel, more coconut, bounty bar, and again more coconut. Did I mention coconut? Malt and hops as well. Sweet and coconut is quite dominant.

Very strong roasty, coconut aroma. Medium to light brown body. Very malty, complex taste. A sweet finish which lingers. Definitely very easy to drink and has a lot going on. Great beer for the summer.

Different. Pours a light mahogany brown with a small head. Nose is sweet and vanilla coconut. Taste spells flavor, quite different but appealing. Taste is sweet with a long vanilla coconut finish. Was not expecting very much but enjoyed this light tropical ale. Quaff Score 8 / 10 ... better than a pina colada with a ridiculous umbrella

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Pours brown with a beige head and sweet aroma of coconut and malt. Taste is unique, very different with sweet flavors of coconut, vanilla, and toasted malts, with a medium finish. Great brew, full of flavor, nice to see a coconut brew done so well.

Pours a light brown with a mocha head. Aroma of light caramel malts. Taste is another story, very sweet, creamy coffee, with milk chocolate. Not bad just a bit to sweet.

If a brewing company is making beer out of Hawaii coconut was sure to make its way into the mix. Koko brown id definitely a beer to have if u r looking for flavor. Not like other fruity beers, in this one u can actually taste the ingredients. Cheers!
