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.

Wow, great aroma of coconut and toffee right after pouring in the glass. Crystal clear brown mahogany just as the description says. More nutty coconut in the flavor as well. Overall, much better than I expected. Im sad that I got this as part of a "Make Your Own" six pack as opposed to a straight up 6er of this. Im going to get some more...

Very strong coconut flavor but it works. This is a good brown ale with malty flavor and a great mouth feel.

Westkyoto77 (515) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 26, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Bottle. One of the nicest brown ales in my experience. Aromas are drenched in coconut, but it works. Brown sugar, toasted malt, and some cherry. Coconut flavour lingers nicely- not too overpowering. Beautifully smooth and supple. Unique, and a real treat.

On tap at The Chicago Beer Festival 2014. Pour is light brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is of coconut, suntan lotion, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor has a bit more roast and malt coming through. Coconut oil in the aftertaste, not a big fan of this.

Mmm, this is a very nice brown! The aroma is decent - slightly roasty and somewhat sweet. The pour is a good dark brown with a tan head that leaves lacing. The taste is your standard slightly roasted malt but the finish sets this one apart. The sweet caramel undertone flavor really adds to this beer! Easily drinkable and quite sessionable! Good stuff!

superspak (2559) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/5/2013. Pours crystal clear ruby brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, chocolate, coconut, toffee, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, vanilla, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and coconut notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, chocolate, coconut, toffee, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, vanilla, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, coconut, toffee, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, vanilla, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, coconut, and light earthy hop flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale! All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt and coconut flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
