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.

2/27/12. 12oz bottle. Clear almost reddish pour with a small tan head thatís 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 Iíd 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 yearís version, not nearly as much coconut. Kind of generic tasting, which isnít 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 didnít think that it might have coconut in it. I canít 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 couldnít 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.

~Sweet malty nutty aroma with big dose of toasty coconut. ~Pours a clear amberish brown with small brown head. ~Sweet nut malt flavor, honey, roast, and toasted coconut and chocolate. ~Light bodied with med CO2, smooth, light roast finish. ~Enjoyable brew. Body feels too light. Good blend of coconut and malt.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/nuts), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with notes of coconut and paint. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The coconut in the aroma is pleasant, to be sure, but thereís not too much else going on and there is a bit of paint character in there too. And honestly, the coconut and brown ale characters donít really go together as well as I hoped they might. A bit dirty in the aftertaste, light and watery...just not that much fun to drink. Meh.

12 oz bottle. Clear brown with a small beige head. Aroma of biscuit dough and some oily coconut. Flavor is smooth and malty bread dough and a light coconut taste. Medium body with soft carbonation and a long finish. Nice brown, the coconut is a nice touch.
