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.

Growler @ Cumming Beverage Mart. Medium brown color. Aroma of brown ale. Toasted malts, not much else. Tastes of toasted malt, bitter hops. Don’t really find all of the coconut that others have raved about. Definitely oily. My lips feel like they have chapstick on. (3289)

Brown in the glass...which makes sense considering the name. Very bready aroma, with an imagined hint of coconut. (I really couldn’t smell it) The flavor is decent, but it’s a little thin bodied. There is some coconut in the finish, but I was hoping for more. I love coconut, so they could have beaten the shit out of my palette with it and I would have loved it.

In bottle in Maui; aroma of sweet coconut with a little hoppiness. Poured a nice medium brown. Taste starts with the coconut, ends with the ale notes. Overall, quite good and better than I expected.

Well the toasted coconut worked well in the nose here, mixing with light chocolate and nutty malt components, but it was really not to my liking as a flavoring. It just didn’t seem right in a beer, clashing with those same malt flavors. Fair palate, balanced on the whole.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured a light brown color, with aromas of coconut, caramel, vanilla, and some sugar. Flavor is much like the aroma, with some breadiness and light bitter aftertaste.

Draft at Momo’s Pizza. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin white head that fades fast. Nose is roasted malts, light espresso, vanilla and coconut shavings. Sweet vanilla and roasty entry followed by a light nuttiness. Finishes with coconut and some bitterness. Pretty nice.

12oz bottle, from a 6-pack picked up from the publix while I was in Siesta Key this past week. This was a great brown ale! A decent pour yielded a nice big foamy slightly off-white head that would always persist and leave plenty of lace. Clear caramel color. Light carbonation, substantial coconut aftertaste. Good sweet taste, delicious coconut nutty aroma. Very interesting and tasty.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2012
In tap at Tremont Tavern. Pours lightly hazed brown with small off-white to tab head. Aromas of coconut, chocolate, bit of vanilla, and some lightly roasted malts. Flavors of chocolate, sweet coconut, light vanilla, and nice caramel malt finish. Body and carbonatin appropriate for style. Nice sweet brown, which is the way I prefer them. Nice surprise.

Light bodied Brown Ale. Kona hits the chocolate coconut flavor right on, with bitterness and roast to balance out the beer. Definitely a unique Brown Ale.

On tap with a lighter iced tea color. Thin head. Nice and mild on the taste buds from the start. Mild slaggy choco thing is going on. Easy and fresh is the impression. Not bad! Better than expected fer some reaon. Decent overall co2 presence. Some vanilla comes thru on the finish.
