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.

Didn’t expect much out of this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Really nice rich milk chocolately flavors finished off with a mild roasty bitterness. Sweeter than I ever would have thought. The aroma is similar, with some cookie dough and other baking spices mixed in. Points off for being somewhat one-noted and thin-bodied, but otherwise great beer.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 4, 2012
2/7/12 notes: Bottle. Pours light brown, clear, nice white structured head. Aroma is sweet, condensed milk, coconut flesh, powdered sugar. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, not too heavy. Flavor coats with sweetness, tempered slightly by some toasted coconut and baked cookies. Sweetness is a bit heavy handed and uncomplicated, but flavor is strong.

Definite coconut smell and taste. I love coconut so its hard not to like this. A good spin on brown ale.

rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours a light/medium brown with a 1/2 inch of head that dissipates fairly quickly. Not getting much aroma, although what is there is slightly sweet. Taste is a standard brown ale basically.. some light roast malt/chocolate malt character - I get essentially no coconut flavor or aroma. Drinkable for sure, but a bit disappointing as I had high hopes for this - I love Kona’s other "flavored" brew - Wailua Wheat.

Pours a clean copper brown with one finger of yellowish tan head. Nose is sweet and rich, kind of saccharin and fake. Slightly nutty with some vanilla extract and coconut. Vanilla and toasted grain in the flavor with some caramel and coconut. Ehh

pineypower (2411) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle from Canal’s Berlin. Pours out a moderate to light brown color with a small white head. Aroma is of freshly toaste coconut, light caramel malts, vanilla and some sugary notes. Taste is milky smooth toasted coconut, light caramel, vanilla, bread, and maybe a little bitterness on the finish. I like this one, but couldn’t have too many.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine. Aroma was weak and more of a traditional blah brown, but the flavor was toasted coconut with a bit of chocolate hints. I really enjoyed this one. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
