From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear light cola brown with an off white head. Nutty aroma. Flavors of cocoa butter. Tastes nice and it might work as a sunscreen.

A little heavy on the coconut but has some decent flavors including that of roasted barley, chocolate, and chocolate. Different but worth checking out

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance has a dark brown colored body with a decent one finger white foamy head that lingers a bit and then falls and leaves a nice spider web lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass.
The smell has a light toasted coconut up front through some nice roasty somewhat nutty tones.
The taste has a coconut flavored nuttiness with a nice maltiness coming through. There is no aftertaste, and a somewhat dry toasty malty finish.
The palate has a light to medium sort of feel in body. She is somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is extremely smooth, and feels awesome around the mouth and tongue.
Overall, its been awhile since Iíve had some Kona and Iím glad I picked this one up as I would have this nice Brown Ale again.

Sweet brown ale with hints of chocolate. Clear dark brown body with small beige head, aroma of chocolate, molasses and a hint of coffee. Taste is sweet, more chocolaty as it warms up. A little on the sweet side, but not too bad.

Bottle. Clear brown color with a small off white head. Dominant toasted coconut aroma. Mostly sweet caramel malts blended with coconut. Slight lingering roasted bitterness. Thin, dry texture with good carbonation. A nice change of pace from the normal browns out there.

I like the taste but dislike the smell. I normally donít like dark beers, but this is delightful. Not too strong for a dark beet wimp like myself. Not hoppy. No unpleasant aftertaste. I like it.
