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, picked up in Arizona, and brought home in my suitcase. Pours clear brown, thin pale tan head, spotty to poor lacing. Nose is big sweet coconut, not really a toasty coconut, more like opening a can of coconut milk... Some typical "brown ale" notes are here, but you can’t pick anything out over the everpresent coconut. Flavour is nicely bitter, and a bit grainy, which reminds you that are in fact drinking a beer. Then the coconut takes over, and dominates all else. Just a bit lighter touch with the coconut and this could have been a winner, but I don’t see myself wishing I had a whole 6-pack of this. I’ll just finish my one. Gets to be a bit much after a while...

Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour, small light tan head. Definite coconut, caramel malt, light sweetness, and a bit nutty. Pretty thin and personally I don’t like it very much.

Bottle from BevMo. Pours reddish brown with a thick tan head and a toffee aroma. There is a smoked malt flavor with lots of coconut. A tasty brew made with local ingredients.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Sweet toffee and caramel with a nuttiness. Pours a ruby color with foamy off white head. A sweet coconut nuttiness with a caramel finish. Fairly dry finish. Medium bodied with a biting carbonation. Good brown that is very drinkable. Almost candy like.

thetmaxx (835) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Poured into an etched 12oz glass. Appearance is a very clear, brownish red with a thin white head that was enhanced greatly by the etched glass. Lots of nice lacing down the glass. Aroma was fantastic, good balance of the coconut on this one. Mouth feel is nice, full bodied with lively carbonation. Aroma was fantastic, good balance of the coconut on this one. On to the flavor... pretty much what you would expect by the aroma. Nice coconut flavor that doesn’t over power the toasty and nuttiness of the brown ale. Overall a really nice blend of coconut in this brown ale. Makes me imagine how good a pineapple beer could be...

Not much in the aroma. Looks good. First thought is that this has coconut and vanilla in it. Body is quite smooth and hot heavy at all. A pleasant aftertaste. Surprised in a good way by this beer. Worth trying.

Bottle from Whispering Willows Liquor: Created a thick fluffy layer of foam head which eventually retreated leaving behind a medium leather brown hue. As for the aroma, my nose is able to pick up on some lightly toasted toffee/caramel like malts and only a hint of coconut milk. The palate is refined and has a gentle smooth flavor of browned toffee malt as well as a moderate taste of coconut shavings or coconut juice. This has to be one of the best brown ales I have ever tasted.

Strong coconut nose. You couldn’t get more prominent a nose of roasted coconut without toasting shavings yourself. Really has an amazing aroma. Rich roasted malt backbone. Strong, bready malt with sweet milk sugars and some light coffee character. Great drink - borderline novelty in how heavy the coconut is played up but really solid all around and incredibly enjoyable.

Ratman197 (11760) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Bottle poured a clear mahogany with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of coconut, milk chocolate, light carmel and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coconut, cocoa, carmel and light vanilla with a smooth lingering coconut finish.
