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.

A particularly nice beer for a brown ale, the coconut adds both a nice aroma on the nose and a light and toasty flavor to complement the nutty malt with a hint of citrus.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark red brown with a nice one inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of coconut, chocolate, nuts, malt, some smoke, caramel and some alcohol. Similar aroma. Reminds me of an Almond Joy or Mounds candy bar. The body is slick and on the watery side. Drinkable and rather enjoyable. Not bad, but I was expecting a little more

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a clear light orange color with a gentle ring of head. Aroma of roasted coconut and nuts. A bit strange. Flavor is kind of woody with light cocoa and roasted. Finishes a bit watery.

Dark brown-mahogany with a nice, tan head. Rich and somewhat chewy texture. Quite flavorful, especially for a brown ale. Iím not a big fan of coconut, in general, but the addition was quite nice in this beer. It had a real, fresh quality to it. Malty sweetness prevailed in the malt-hop struggle, but the hops put up a good fight. They were earthy, grassy and snappy. Overall, I thought the beer was surprisingly tasty; itís just a little too sweet for my buds.

Bottle... part of variety 12er from Costco. Love their fire rock and longboard for hot summer drinking, so figured a brown would be nice. Pours a dark amber brown, with a decent head. Can definitely smell the coconut. Tastes a little sweet and a tad too much coconut for me. I too was expecting a nice solid brown ale with a hint of coconut - not this beer... Also tasted thin and almost artificial. Not much of a finish. Not really my thing.

Whoa, there is definately coconut in there! you can smell it and taste it in the aftertase. A bit of hops and dark malts in there too. Not a lot of head, pretty good lacing, dark brown, clear. After the first taste of the coconut it is really, really obvious. Hops show up on the fadeout too. Pretty tasty and unique.

At the Kona brewpub, draft. 5 oz sampler. Copper red, light head, great fresh coconut aroma. Very sweet coconut up front, middle, and finish. Have to say this is a bit too sweet, could use more malt "roastiness" to balance the coconut. Wife thinks this has a bit of amaretto in it as well.

AGAquino (659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2011
At the Honolulu airport Kona Brewing pub. Probably the best Kona Iíve had. Clear dark amber color with slight foam offwhite head and some lace. Sweet malt flavor with noticeable coconut. Not as intense as the Maui Coconut Porter, but still an impresive beer. Very nice lingering aftertaste.

I had this on draft at slaterís 50/50 in Anaheim Hills. This is a very well crafted beer. Nice roastiness that is complemented by the sweetness & richness of coconut. Itís very tasty.
