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.

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.

Pours a velvety amber/mahogany with an aroma of coconut and light white chocolate. Flavor is coconut candy (Mounds) and fluffy coconut coffee. Average mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Medium brown and very clear, thin tan head. Aroma of coconut, some chocolate and nutty notes. Coconut dominates flavor with supportive toasty, chocolate and nutty flavors. Balanced finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Aroma is malts, caramel and toffee. The flavor is malts, toffee and a long citrus hoppiness mixed with sweetness that goes into the finish. Kind of subdued in the beginning but gets better after drinking more of it.

Poured a clear very beautiful rich mahogany brown with a thin 1 finger khaki head that dropped to just a film quickly. There was a good strong coconut aroma with some roasted nuttiness. The beer had a slightly thick texture and a predominate coconut flavor. There is also a nice roasted nutty flavor and a bit of sweetness that makes this unique beer taste like a tropical drink. The coconut flavor lastes well into the mild finish that gradually fades away. Nice flavor combination and refreshing.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear brown pour with a very thin white head. Citrus and hops in the aroma but only after a rather nice chocolate and coconut beginning. Flavor is mostly coconut and chocolate with a light nutty and hoppy aftertaste. A nice surprise.

This beer was a surprise.. Perfect infusion of coconut in this brown. The richness of the coconut really compliments what could be a good stand alone brown. Nice work.

Bottle @ home. I bought this on a whim. It sounded interesting. The beer looks like a brown should. The aroma was wonderful, like chocolate milk and coconut. Toasted coconut is front and center in the flavor. There’s also a nice hazelnutty, chocolate, caramel malty, and light toffee flavor. A touch watery but overall a great beer. I have now been pleasantly surprised by Kona twice now. Good job, Kona.
