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.

Aroma - roasted malt, hint of sweet coconut; Appearance - brown, thick creamy head, decent lacing; Taste - balanced malt front, nutty coconut sweetness intensifies throughout the back, long somewhat dry finish; Palate - slightly crisp, average body for the style; Overall - extremely flavorful brew though not overly complex.

Clear brown with a modest off-white head that’s fairly persistent. The aroma is full of coconut, which dominates the toasty malt aromas underneath.The taste is, again, dominated by coconut over lightly sweet and toasted malt flavors and a modest bitterness. Medium bodied, softly carbonated, and somewhat creamy.

Bottle @ home. I was given a high recommendation of this by my buddy Tim, so I got to give it a try. Pours a deep brown appearance with a tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Wow, the aroma is delicious. Rich coconut and nutty aroma with some more subtle notes of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Toasted coconut is front and center in the flavor. There’s also a nice hazelnutty, chocolate, caramel malty, and light toffee flavor. A touch watery but overall a great beer that I imagine could really enjoy mainstream success.

pours dark ruby red with an effervescent head that dissipates like soda. aroma is nutty to be expected, with a bit of a coffee note. flavor is typical of the style, though i didnt get much coconut from it honestly. still, a solid brown that isnt too heavy. nice.

Light, transparent brown with a thick beige head. Spicy, fresh aromatics with excellent intensity. Very similar to the Coconut Porter as the coconut is out in front, but in the end this is a bit less sweet and a bit more enjoyable. A very easy beer for anyone to enjoy.

Brown - really nice thick head. Aroma of toasted cereal. Taste is cereal but with a nice mix of coconut. Not much bitterness and a touch of sweetness. The finish is at first malty, then going to the taste of coconut milk.

bobaidan (529) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pours reddish brown with a medium head. Aroma roasted malt with coffee. A bit thin in body with a lively amount of carbonation. Flavor is mild, but tastey. Coffee is more present than coconut, but every once in a while the coconut does pop through.

joeneugs (4305) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pours a clear brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is very strong with coconut and lightly toasted malt. The flavor is odd to me. Kinda like suntan lotion. Very strong notes of coconut overpower the rather simple brown ale base. There’s some burnt toast at the finish. This beer does pair well with curry dishes though.

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.
