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.

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 Iím kinda surprised that I havenít tried it yet.

Aroma is pretty damn epic. Like a chocolatey, nutty, toasted coconut cookie. Absolutely incredible nose. Taste is intense coconut and chocolate up front... but the body is thin and the finish is shortlived. Good beer, but it needs to be BIGGER!

Sampled in a 12oz bottle. Pours deep brown, really impressed for a hawaiian brewery. Has a nice head on it that is quite creamy. The malts are very toasty.

Had on tap at the Oakland Aís game. Suprised to see that they had quite a few Kona Brewing products in their line-up and this isnít a regularly bottled beer, so I thought it was good thing (albeit expensive).

The beer pours out a rootbeer brown body with a minimal head. I didnít dock it points because the person pouring the beer just wanted to get as much liquid in the cup as possible. Aroma of light vanilla bean/vanilla sugar and subtle roasted notes. I wanted to smell the coconut, but just didnít sense it. Flavor had some light-medium malt sweetness, light chocolate, black walnut like bitterness with a hint of the coconut. If you want premium beer at the ballpark, prepare to pay for it but when you stop and think about it...regular swill is just a buck or two cheaper. Pretty nice for a ballpark beer.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of grainy malt, coconut and a bit of fruit. Lots of coconut in the flavor along with chocolate, caramel and crisp hops in the finish.

Draught; clear brown with medium tan head; aroma-coconut, nuts, roasty, sweet; taste-light sweetness, medium bitterness, lively carbonation, coconut aftertaste. Surprising and good.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
[Tap] Pours an even brown color with a nice looking light brown head on top. Chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla and molasses in the nose. Tastes of cocoa powder, coconut, toasted nut and sweet brown sugar. Velvety mouthfeel leads to a creamy finish. Despite the sweet and toffee-like malt profile, this beer is nicely balanced and the sweetness is kept in check. Good stuff. The coconut really adds a nice dimension here.

Draft. Brown beer with a dark cream colored head. Chocolate and cocoa aroma with light malt. Chocolte and cocoa flavor with malt and a light nuttiness. Medium bodied. Chocolate and toasted coconut lingers with cocoa, malt, and light caramel.
