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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 re-rate 08/12 - agree exactly with earlier rate - drinking along with many other borns and this rates in the middle - good brew just not at the top end for the is style; needs to be thicker...nice nutty toffee aroma/flavor solid. nice aroma although I donít know if I smelled coconut (or wtf coconut smells like) - I got malt and a good bit of toffee which was very nice; maybe vanilla. pour was a light amber brown. thin mouthfeel. Flavor was malt, toffee and slight hop bitterness. good brown.

ReggieDunlap (3018) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Pours a clear brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has roasty malt with some caramely notes...mild coconut and vanilla...almost bourbony. Flavor has creamy vanilla and coconut with good roasty backing and light hoppiness...still almost bourbony. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is roasty and dry. Nice brown ale!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2012
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, toasting, nuts, slight roasting, and slight cocoa. I do not get any coconut. Poured copper/deep orange in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, cocoa, nuts, toasting, and roasting. Again, I get no coconut. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, toasting, cocoa, nut, finish is lightly sweet and dry.

Amber brown with light tan head. Strong coconut aroma with hint of brown sugar. Sweet malt flavor with lots of coconut, low bitterness. Medium to light body, average carbonation. Nice beer to sip on to remind you of Hawaii.

S_Side_Smitty (431) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours an amber brown with a medium light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a mellowed molasses mingled with something else (not quite coconut), but it smells smooth and rich. Taste is chocolate & roasted malts. There is this pleasant bitterness from the mid-palate through the finish that meshes well with the other flavors. The sweetness doesnít show up until the end. Viva Hawaiian Beers!

ExpendableHero (745) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
This stuff is great. Copper/ruddy brown colored beer, with a frothy, off-white head. Aromas of some chocolate/coffee, and lots of coconut. Tastes of the aforementioned dark chocolate/coffee notes,and ends on a massive coconut flavor. Sweet, yet semi-smoky, finish. This stuff is very unique, and tasty. I want to try some more.

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Pours clear brownish rust colored with 1-finger frothy off-white head and copious lacing. Nose is vienna malt, coconut, hops. Tastes malty, with the coconut foldling itself nicely into the beer. This works well. Also some backup hops and earthy peaty notes. Medium palate heft and complexity level. This one would be great with a tropical fruit plate, some mild cheeses, and some almonds and macadamia nuts.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled Dec 20, 2011.

Appearance: Pours out a dark, brown-reddish body with a sudsy, ecru head that steadily thins, though never fades away.

Smell: Toasted loaf bread, chocolate powder, toasted coconut shavings, maybe a light, addition fruitiness. Itís a brown ale flavored with coconut, what do you expect?

Taste: Soundly toasted Munich malt given a layer of semi-sweet chocolate and small but reliant hint of brown sugar. Lightly herbal hops with a soft, low level of bitterness. Sweetish, semi-dry finish with the maltiness lingering gently into the aftertaste. Itís a brown ale flavored with coconut, what do you expect?

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Indeed, it is a brown ale flavored with coconut. If any part of that statement gives you pause, then this isnít for you.
