The coconut flavour comes through very strongly, and it’s surprisingly pleasing. It makes the overall taste quite sweet.

Bottle. Faint aroma of bread and roasted nuts. Poured a clear medium brown color with a dmal white head that vanished quickly. Very complex taste of nuts, caramel, coconut, with slight vanila. Very active carbonation on the palate. One of the best browns I’ve ever had. Highly recommended. Cheers

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

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.

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.
