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.

At the Honolulu airport Kona Brewing pub. Probably the best Kona Iíve had. Clear dark amber color with slight foam offwhite head and some lace. Sweet malt flavor with noticeable coconut. Not as intense as the Maui Coconut Porter, but still an impresive beer. Very nice lingering aftertaste.

I had this on draft at slaterís 50/50 in Anaheim Hills. This is a very well crafted beer. Nice roastiness that is complemented by the sweetness & richness of coconut. Itís very tasty.

Wow what a great brew at San Diego Brew Co. Creamy light and mild coconut to go with roasty goodness. Not overly sweet. Nice beer.

Toasted coconut, roasted peanut brittle and toffee do somersaults on the tongue. Not too syrupy or cloaked with sugar, this has, under some magical anomaly, a perfect balance of oak-like essence and playful sweetness. Great dessert beer that would go well with a scoop of coconut ice cream.

This is a fine dark ale with a coconut flavor added to it. I donít ever want to like fruity beers but this one comes out really smooth and enjoyable.

OK, got duped by the bottle. Guys tricked me into buying a sixer beacuse from what I thought, i was getting a nice brown ale with a hint of coconut wafting in from the Hawaii shores...not so much. Way to much coconut on this, completely over-powers the beer, but then again, that is good, because as the coconut fades, the cardboardy beer comes through. I was hoping for something else, oh well..this will get a ton of sales from soccer-moms in the mid-west that just got back from a family hawaiian trip however, so they get the last laugh.

6-pack from Chuckís. Pours more black than brown. Creamy white head like a Guiness. Sharp bubbles and heavy coconut on malt make this an interesting and tasty brew. I could go for six more.

I was hoping for a "liquid Mounds bar" and got it, can you ask for anything else? Great beer from the Aloha state!

On tap at Whole Foods in Chandler. Pours a dark amber shade with a trim beige head. Smells and tastes of oatmeal, brown sugar, sweet malts, and honeycomb, and toasted coconut. Nice, but the sweetness wears.

Bottle; poured a murky, dirty water brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, earth, maybe a slight hint of coconut. The coconut was more pronounced in the flavor, but wasnít overpowering. Nice complimentary component. Caramel, toasted malt, and earth. Enjoyable.
