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.

This is a very very very well made beer. It’s unfortunate that I do not enjoy the taste of coconut, because I would completely adore this beer otherwise. Still, I cannot discredit it because of my personal tastes. A+

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Wood and coconut nose, quite strong and distinct, chocolate undertones. Clear tea colored, thin yellowish head. Coconut flavor with a brazil nut bitterness. I love Brazil nuts! Maple syrup finish. Thin mouthfeel. Quite good.

PorterPounder (5345) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Southwood - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, light off-white head that sticks around the rim of the glass. Aroma has a strong coconut presence with some cocoa butter accents. Flavor has some initial nuttiness, some coconut undertones, a brief hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel could be a tad thicker. Decent.

Nikiel (874) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle with Carla. Pours an amber brown with nice light-tan foam. Smells sweet of coconut and bourbon. Tastes sweet and lightly tangy again with lots of coconut and rum (surprisingly tasty and drinkable).

NordicV (1090) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2012
En härligt djupt mörkbrun öl med livligt smutsvitt skum. Doftar kokos tillsammans med lätt rostade toner. Kokosen är inte så kväljande som man skulle kunna vara rädd för. Men den döljer till stor del andra smaker.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2012
Snyggt skum över den mörka ölen, och aromen av kokos och nötter är inte heller dålig. Smaken är kokos och mörk choklad, men redan efter ett par munnar blir det för mycket. En hel flaska skulle jag nog inte få i mig.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Tap at Max’s. translucent red amber, thin white top, lacing thin on glass. Nose is nutty, a bit earthy, dry. Flavor lightly sweeter, dark malt at front becoming chocolate mid with light toasted cocnut sweetness in the finish. Soft body, low carbonation allows coconut qualities to exist, could use longer richer malt finish, bit soft, bordering on mild, but light dryness through end is appreciated.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottled Dec. 16th 2011. Pours dark orange red with a small tan head and some floaty flecks in the beer. Aromas of light coconut milk, buttered toast, hazelnut, and almonds. Buttery, nutty sweet malt flavor, almond and coconuts; some bitter grass in the finish with coconut shavings and toasted nuts. Pretty good. [944]

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Ruby-brown with a short, ring of tan foam. Aroma is nutty with lots of toasted coconut and caramel. Taste is sweet malt, toasted coconut and big caramel. Soft chocolate covered nuts as well. Body is medium with a soft, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more coconut, pleasant nuttiness, soft chocolate, caramel, and malt notes. Not unlike a slightly "watered down" Mounds.
