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.

Brown in color with a finger of off-white head. The coconut certainly comes through on the aroma. Nice and nutty as well. Thereís also a hint of vanilla to it. Quite sweet with plenty of toffee and caramel, too. Lots and lots of coconut flavor with the toast, nuts, and sweet malt taking a bit of a back seat on this one. Nice balance of sweetness and toast/roast malt flavors to prevent it from being cloying.

On draft at Pinnochioís in Media. Pour was brown colored, completely headless and no lacing, looked uber flat. The aroma was sweet coconut and chocolate. The flavor followed, coconut sweet light chocolate, nothing to balance this. A sad concoction, waste of "beer." Mouthfeel was very lightly carbonated, a bit sticky, a joke.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 12 oz bottle. Not quite 2 weeks old; thatís fresh! Clear brown with beige frosting. Nose is brown sugar, toasted coconut and slight ash. Medium body with a sourish tang. Taste is toasted coconut and macadamia nut, bitter cola and molasses with a grassy finish. Good session brown ale. Iíd buy this again.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 02/09/2012. Pours a clear dark reddish-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, malt and vanilla. Medium body with a roasted coconut flavor as well as notes of earthy malt and caramel. The finish is roasty with a coconut aftertaste. I am not a fan of coconut typically but it works in this beer. Above average overall.

Gorgeous, deep crystal brown with a creamy tanned head. Pleasant toasted coconut and brown malt scents waft off the glass like a Hawaian evening breeze. The defining characteristic of this brew is the splendid naturalness of the coconut character. Dried coconut smell intermingles with a well-structured brown malt body. These components meld perfectly in flavor. Dryish coconut-whiskey finish. Just a superbly crafted and nuanced take on the brown ale style.

Oakes (13903) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Light brown, nutty character and a hit of toasted coconut, has a lot of sweetness. The coconut sweetness is pretty strong but there is some nutty balance.

From the tap poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Nutty sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

a - a nice dark brown with a decent head that fades to a sheen pretty quickly. s - coconut, butterscotch, toffee and chocolate malts. t - just like the smell but the butterscotch is lingering only at the end. Nice chocolate touch from this. f - light mouthfeel, med dryness with some lingering. I canít pinpoint what is missing, but something on the mouthfeel would really bring this more alive. o - overall, a pretty solid beer! I wasnít sure what to expect but the coconut is subtle enough with the nice malt back that I could definitely have a couple.

mansquito (4450) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Harris Teeter, DC six-pack ($7.50): Pours a brown color with a cream head. Aroma is of sugar, vanilla, nuttiness. Ultimately, I donít really dig this. I think it was really way too sweet. I didnít really taste the coconut, but I did taste a lot of sugar and nuttiness (like sweet hazelnut type stuff). Not really my thing, but I still drank half the six-pack.

Brown appearance with a beige head. Aroma contains some nutmeg, chocolate milk, and toffee. Flavor is rather sweet with some cocoa powder, caramel, coconut, and toffee. The finish is also sweet. Overall this is different but pretty good.
