4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pours a brown color with off-white head. Great lacing. Aroma is strong toasted coconut. Taste is same, but with some sweet citrus. Palate is syrupy as you might expect. Excellent brown ale!

Bronze with creamy off white head and lace. Roasted malt and coconut dominate the aroma. Coconut dominates the flavor as well, with some help from sweet malt and a light to medium bitter. Thin and tad fizzy but still a nice beer.

Sampled at GABF! Really pleasantly surprised by this one. Chestnut pour with a thin eggshell head that left nice webbing. Aroma shows pronounced coconut, brown sugar, roasted malt, and caramel. Flavor again begins with the coconut and finishes with honey-baked biscuit, a little cocoa, and toasted nuts. Unlike other coconut-flavored beers, this one seemed freshly grated rather than artificial. Medium mouthfeel. Really top notch.

A brown beer with a nice toasted coconut aroma-I likey. The taste is a very nice coconut flavors that adds nicely to the nuttiness of the brown ale.

On tap at the brewpub. Sweet nose, brown with an orange-ish appearance. Filtered looking, but they donít filter here. Smoky nose, woody, a whiff of coconut. Palate has roasted notes, decent, chewy.
