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.

riversideAK (6010) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2011
Nice toasty lightly roasty aroma with hints of sweetness, light coconut. Pours brown, thin head and lace. The flavor is somewhat roasty, toasty, lightly sweet, natural coconut flavors throughout. Doesnt dominate, but compliments well. Solid and enjoyable.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2011
UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 On tap at the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay. Pours a clear ruby with a nice thick creamy head. Toasted coconuts, coffee, nuts, and some chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is wonderfully toasted coconuts followed by cereal grains, nuts, and coffee. What a tasty surprise! The finish was slightly dry from a touch of hops. I really enjoyed this one!

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a clear brown color with a 3/4 finger thick light tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is coconut and caramel malt. Very nice. Flavor is the same. Finish is a little thin with a touch of roasted bitterness. Light to medium body. A nice beer.

dchmela (2971) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2011
Tap at Baileys Taproom. Deep brown pour with a thick off white head. Fresh coconut milk with touches of roasted grain in the aroma. Smooth roasted grain balanced with a wonderful coconut milk flavor. Very tasty and unique brew.

after4ever (7271) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2011
12-oz. Pours a crystal clear ruby garnet with tons of nucleation columns. Dense, creamy tan head on top. Lots of stringy lace. Earthy brown bread nose with toasted coconut showing. Creamy medium body with soft carb, goes a bit watery in spots. Toast, brown bread, earth, and toasted coconut on the mid-palate. I can see why they were excited about this one but it doesnít quite come together. A bit thin, and the earthiness is actually something of a hindrance.

KyotoLefty (8718) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2011
Draught at the Kona Bar in Honolulu airport. Brown, cola-like color. Aroma of coconut, chocolate, Coke. Similar flavor, though more like Cream Soda than Coke. Nice coconut and chocolate, with a good balance that is sweet but not cloying. Good, but tastes too much like soda-pop, though.

onceblind (6618) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2011
Pours a clear dark brown with ruby tones, and a decent bubbly head with ok lacing. Aroma is pretty strange--like coconut shavings and Vanilla Coke. Not a bad thing, just not beery and a little on the sweet. Flavor more than makes up for it though. Sweet, but not cloying or syrupy (a fear I had from the cola tones). Just a gentle sweetness filled with milky coconut and a dose of brown cola flavors. No bitterness in the flavor, which is a bit of a shame. But itís still pretty tasty and assertive. Points!

arondee (599) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2011
UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Pours a dark brown color with a thick white head and good lacing. Aroma is toasted coconut and coffee. The taste is wonderful. The coconut flavor is perfect, almost milky, a wonderful beer! One of the best brown ales Iíve ever had. The only improvement I can think of is I wish there was a touch more body. Other than this this is a surprisingly good beer from Kona Brewing. After drinking one the taste starts to get a little overwhelming. I could only have one of these a night. Itís good but its pretty rich.
