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.

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.

Pours a clear brown with lovely dark tan head on draft. Aroma of roasted malts, slight coconut sweet note on the end. Taste pretty much follows suit, but more coconut. Well balanced and not overpowering on the sweet. Great brown ale.

Pours brown with a cocoa colored head. Aroma is roasty, coconut and some chocolate. Light mouth feel made this very easy to drink. Tasted sweet with the coconut coming through lightly

A very good coconut beer! Beautiful maroon color with a tan head. Smells of coconut and buttery cream. Tastes like toasted coconut, but not overpowering. Finishes with more coconut and slight coffee taste. Better then the Maui brewing coconut porter. (Although that is tasty as well). Had in the bottle.
