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.

Strong coconut nose. You couldnít 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.

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.

First taste was at the Kona Brewery, Hawaii on tap (pint glass) and was elated to find it bottled mainland! Coconut aroma is sweetly floral but is grounded by a nutty malt taste. Slight sweetness is balanced by light hops making for a refreshing beer, and like they say, Liquid Aloha!

Bottle... Poured brownish/red with a thick beige head. Aroma of toasted cocoa and coconut. Nice palate, a little dry with a decent carbonation. Lots of roast, toasted tones, sweet malt, coconut, cocoa. Light yeast tones, very drinkable and quenching.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin off white head that fades quickly. Aroma is coconut with some nuttiness, along with some roasted notes. Flavor matches the aroma well with nice flavor from the coconut up front and finishing with more nutty flavors. Medium body with nice level of carbonation. Overall this is a nice variation on a brown ale. The coconut provides nice notes without being overpowering. Iím not a huge fan of coconut in general and found this to be pleasant.

Picked up a sixer of this and boy was it worth it. Super smooth but with a good carbonation than lends itself to a long glug. The coconut flavor is almost oily in the mouth with sweet toasty notes lasting long into the finish. Itís light yet with an excellent depth of flavor. Good to not have the coconut weighed down by a stout or porter malt character. Iíll be picking up plenty more of this.

12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a thin white head, little lacework. Aroma is roasted malts and coconuts, chocolate also comes through. The flavor is creamy with a definite coconut taste to it, very nutty too. Little to no bitterness, body is fairly thin, carbonation is medium. Overall the coconut makes this a pretty interesting brew.

12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. Bottled on 2/7/11. Obnoxiously sweet, coconut, vanilla, buttery notes present. Light metallic, roasted notes underneath, though. Just very over the top. An attractive transparent amber-brown body with a moderate tan head that is rapidly dissipating. Starts a little roasted and burnt, before the sweet, sugary, butter coconut flavor takes over. This is sweet, and very cloying with seemingly artificial coconut macaroon flavor. Whereís the subtlety?

cmonster (993) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle served in a guinness. Clear rusty orange in color with a short off-white head. Minimal retention, nil lace. Aromatic nose of heavy coco shavings and fruity malt. Artificial coconut, but sweet nonetheless. Medium sweet flavor. Medium-light body, thin texture, decent carbonation, with a short, dry coco finish. It went down easy enough, but the coconut is overdone.
