4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
First taste was at the Kona Brewery, Hawaii on tap (pint glass) and was elated to find it bottled mainland! Coconut aroma is sweetly floral but is grounded by a nutty malt taste. Slight sweetness is balanced by light hops making for a refreshing beer, and like they say, Liquid Aloha!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured brownish/red with a thick beige head. Aroma of toasted cocoa and coconut. Nice palate, a little dry with a decent carbonation. Lots of roast, toasted tones, sweet malt, coconut, cocoa. Light yeast tones, very drinkable and quenching.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin off white head that fades quickly. Aroma is coconut with some nuttiness, along with some roasted notes. Flavor matches the aroma well with nice flavor from the coconut up front and finishing with more nutty flavors. Medium body with nice level of carbonation. Overall this is a nice variation on a brown ale. The coconut provides nice notes without being overpowering. I’m not a huge fan of coconut in general and found this to be pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a sixer of this and boy was it worth it. Super smooth but with a good carbonation than lends itself to a long glug. The coconut flavor is almost oily in the mouth with sweet toasty notes lasting long into the finish. It’s light yet with an excellent depth of flavor. Good to not have the coconut weighed down by a stout or porter malt character. I’ll be picking up plenty more of this.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a thin white head, little lacework. Aroma is roasted malts and coconuts, chocolate also comes through. The flavor is creamy with a definite coconut taste to it, very nutty too. Little to no bitterness, body is fairly thin, carbonation is medium. Overall the coconut makes this a pretty interesting brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. Bottled on 2/7/11. Obnoxiously sweet, coconut, vanilla, buttery notes present. Light metallic, roasted notes underneath, though. Just very over the top. An attractive transparent amber-brown body with a moderate tan head that is rapidly dissipating. Starts a little roasted and burnt, before the sweet, sugary, butter coconut flavor takes over. This is sweet, and very cloying with seemingly artificial coconut macaroon flavor. Where’s the subtlety?

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle served in a guinness. Clear rusty orange in color with a short off-white head. Minimal retention, nil lace. Aromatic nose of heavy coco shavings and fruity malt. Artificial coconut, but sweet nonetheless. Medium sweet flavor. Medium-light body, thin texture, decent carbonation, with a short, dry coco finish. It went down easy enough, but the coconut is overdone.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(12oz bottle). Pours cola color with beige head. Active carbonation. Aroma of sweet coconut, nuts, and florals. Taste is semi-sweet malt with more of the sweet coconut coming through. There is a hop bite that adds bitterness. Thin to medium bodied with a oily/slick texture. Finish is slightly bitter. I think the coconut makes this beer better because it mellows out some of the rough edges around the beer. Nice beer.
