This is a fine dark ale with a coconut flavor added to it. I don’t ever want to like fruity beers but this one comes out really smooth and enjoyable.

OK, got duped by the bottle. Guys tricked me into buying a sixer beacuse from what I thought, i was getting a nice brown ale with a hint of coconut wafting in from the Hawaii shores...not so much. Way to much coconut on this, completely over-powers the beer, but then again, that is good, because as the coconut fades, the cardboardy beer comes through. I was hoping for something else, oh well..this will get a ton of sales from soccer-moms in the mid-west that just got back from a family hawaiian trip however, so they get the last laugh.

6-pack from Chuck’s. Pours more black than brown. Creamy white head like a Guiness. Sharp bubbles and heavy coconut on malt make this an interesting and tasty brew. I could go for six more.

I was hoping for a "liquid Mounds bar" and got it, can you ask for anything else? Great beer from the Aloha state!

On tap at Whole Foods in Chandler. Pours a dark amber shade with a trim beige head. Smells and tastes of oatmeal, brown sugar, sweet malts, and honeycomb, and toasted coconut. Nice, but the sweetness wears.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a murky, dirty water brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, earth, maybe a slight hint of coconut. The coconut was more pronounced in the flavor, but wasn’t overpowering. Nice complimentary component. Caramel, toasted malt, and earth. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma is coconut and roasted nuts as expected. Taste is toasted coconut but I wish the coconut was a little more raw tasting. The roast is a little too prominent. A decent beer overall though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice toasty lightly roasty aroma with hints of sweetness, light coconut. Pours brown, thin head and lace. The flavor is somewhat roasty, toasty, lightly sweet, natural coconut flavors throughout. Doesnt dominate, but compliments well. Solid and enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 On tap at the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. Pours a clear ruby with a nice thick creamy head. Toasted coconuts, coffee, nuts, and some chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is wonderfully toasted coconuts followed by cereal grains, nuts, and coffee. What a tasty surprise! The finish was slightly dry from a touch of hops. I really enjoyed this one!
