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.

20oz pour at local sports bar. Came to the table as a reddish-brown, with not much of a head. Aroma was a mild, distinct, roasted malts, with a nice toasted coconut. Woah! Flavor was light roast, with coconut and vanilla. Was so smooth and creamy. I may have found a fantastic brown ale I can get at a crummy sports bar.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear dark brown with a one finger off-white head. Minimal lacing. Smell is dark roasted malt with a little bit of chocolate and coconut. Flavor has plenty of roasted malt but coconut also is front and center. Good chocolate flavor as well all blending together to create a wonderful taste. A tiny bit of hop bitterness is there to level out the sweetness. It’s almost like a Mounds bar in a glass. Overall a wonderful beer for someone who loves coconut.

Off white head that lingers. Appears reddish brown. Aroma is light but very pleasant of toasted coconut. Taste of vanilla and light toasted coconut with light body. Caramel notes emerge as it warms. Fantastic concept but I wish the was more body or sweetness to enhance the coconut flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin light beige head, over a clear, light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is primarily cocoanut, with hints of coffee, chocolate....taste is cocoanut, with light coffee, cocoa, finishing with cocoanut, mocha tones...mouth feel light of medium, carbonation medium. This is a different brown. The cocoanut changes the dynamic completely. It is not unpleasant, but one has to like cocoanut to appreciate this. The cocoanut masks the usual aspects one finds in a Brown Ale. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

while there is a decent amount of dark nutty malts the palate is very thin, not very hoppy either. highly carbonation with a clean head and clean tasting

The aroma is toasted and coffee like with a hint of chocolate. The appearance is light brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin but ok. Overall a slightly better than average beer.

Poured clear from bottle, reddish with brown hue and light, tiny bubble head. Aroma is strong toasted coconut, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor is medium sweet, coconut in pleasant but strange in a beer..getting used to it! Smooth palate. Enjoyed more than I expected...

Aquilo (525) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Clear, dark red-brown color with a creamy head. Aroma is caramel and cedar, but if I concentrate I can smell the coconut. Flavor is rich and moderately bitter. Smooth palate. This is a dang good beer, and I’m kinda surprised that I haven’t tried it yet.
