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.

Bottle. Petrified amber color with a medium off white head. Fairly still in the glass. Nose is woody with coconut. Like smelling the inside of a rum barrel. Taste reminds me of dark cane rum and coconut. Sophisticated tropical cognac so to speak. Its way boozier than I expected and there is a nice bitter finish from the hops to keep the sweetness in check. The flavor of vanilla lingers long on the palate. A very nice beer for a cool spring evening.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2011
On tap at The Yard House in Honolulu, HI. Pours a clear, deeper brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice, creamy lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty solid. Toasted nuts, caramel, a light coconut sweetness, a hint of cocoa, a touch of roast, and some light earth. Flavor is similar. Lots of toasted coconut with a solid caramel backing. Light cocoas and roast with some earth to balance. Finishes with a smooth nutty sweetness, some caramel, a touch of roast, and a nice, light, earthy bitterness to balance. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a very smooth, medium body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, an excellent brown ale. Lots of balanced flavor and extremely easy drinking. Love the toasted coconut sweetness and earthy, light roast. Great beer.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown with thin off white head. Much lacing. Faint aroma. Full body, flavour is cocoanut with a little malt. Touch bitterness. Lasting cocoanut finish. Seemed to be overbalanced with cocoanut

On Tap at Brewforia Beer Market, Meridian. ID. I double checked the keg cap from the brewer and this is in fact "Koko Brown ale brewed with toasted coconut & natural flavor added" (Konaís Label). Iíll let the RB admins figure this out. Anyway, clear deep redish brown with minimal head (I think the keg is a bit under pressured) faint toasted coconut in sort of a woody kind of way in the aroma, a d slightly sweet flavor. The flavorings make it a touch sour and the aftertaste is where the nutty coconut husk comes through a bit more. Interesting, and coincidently similar to their Maui Brewing island neighbors.

I didnít enter this beer and it sounds exactly like the the Coco-Loco Brown, but iím looking at my bottle and it matches the picture so Iíll put my review here. This is excellent. Perhaps Iím a little nostalgic from my trip to Oahu last month but Iím loving this. I usually donít like brown ales, but the coconut in this shines through. The aroma is coconut and brown sugar. The flavor is big coconut, then some nutty sweetness. Superb. Iím kicking myself for only getting one bottle and not the whole six pack.

This is a beer float beer for sure. Big, big coconut aroma and taste. Some chocolate hidden in there as well. The brown ale really lets the coconut take center stage.

On tap at brewery. Pours light brown with white head. Aroma of toasted coconut. Taste is mote coconut and some mineral astringency. I have to say I get way more coconut in this beer than in Maui coconut porter. As a coconut lover, I approve. Average palate with lingering coconut sweet finish.

Unlike the ginger flavored beer I sampled, the flavor was CLEARLY obvious in this one. Coconut in the nose, coconut in the flavor, coconut lingering in my mouth in the finish. Oddly enjoyable - maybe the Hawaiian setting had something to do with that? Sweet body, smooth finish. Brilliant amber color.
