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.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of tanning oil and smoke. Clear mahogany, tan head. I get coconut, cream soda, smoke (perhaps from burning coconut shells), maybe a touch of bourbon. Slightly sticky. Enjoyable, not something I will crave in the future.

Nice brown/deep amber with a cream head. Nose is chocolate, coconut, rich malts, and vanilla. Great on the palate, flavor is vanilla, coconut, heavy malts, chocolate, and a great finish.

Bottle - deep dark (but still translucent) brown with a nice beige head. Has an aroma and taste of roasted malts. It does have a hint of coconut on the palate. Average body and medium mouthfeel. Nice brew and I wouldn’t turn down another one.

Pour on tap was hazy brown with thin off white head, aroma was a bit nondeScript but had notes of some caramel, and nutty flavors mixing in with a hint of coconut, some hints of char in there as well. Taste, however, is a very nice mix of sweet coconute with the sweet caramel and nutty flavors, hints of bitter earth that ends a bit sweet, pretty nicely done!

Aroma is roasted nuts. Taste is slightly sweet with the coconut coming on fairly strong through the aftertaste. Light and almost fizzy mouthfeel. Good, easy to drink bear. Really enjoyable.

2/27/12. 12oz bottle. Clear almost reddish pour with a small tan head that’s gone fast and laces a bit. Sweet chocolate aroma with touches of nuttiness and coconut. Sweet chocolate flavor with even more nuttiness and lingering coconut. Not bad, but I’d hope for more and fresher coconut.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 A good, creamy brown ale with some milky coconut chocolate taste to it. Really solid, wish I had bought more. 2013: I feel like the beer is a decent amount worse than last year’s version, not nearly as much coconut. Kind of generic tasting, which isn’t bad, but not great either.

Pours a light cola color with a creamy off white head. Aroma is coconut and barley. Flavor screams malt balls and coconut .

I have no idea why I bought a beer called "Koko" from Hawaii and didn’t think that it might have coconut in it. I can’t stand coconut. This beer is significantly coconutty. The base beer is sugary, like dimestore chocolate wafers. If you grew up on those wafers (which came in diabetic vanilla, radioactive pink, and kona brewing company chocolate flavors), you can take a trip down memory lane with this beer. I couldn’t finish half the bottle myself.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Pretty brown color, slightly murky with a white foamy head. Not a lot of coconut flavor/aroma to speak of but it tastes much better then any normal brown ale.
