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.

TheKernOwl (161) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Light and (at first) interesting beer. Coconut leads the way- dried coconut nose with faint drinking chocolate whiff. Darker and more chocolate in the mouth. A bit like a bounty ice cream crossed with a german dunkel weizen (much less fizzy than most, but as thin as some, of the latter).

jsporrer (569) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a medium cocoa brown with a huge white foamy head. Stong coconut aroma. Descent brown ale with a sweet coconut taste. Body feels just a tad thin. Not bad but not great.

rollinsr (552) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours clear and brown with a ruby hue and very little tan head. Aroma is smoky with with light chocolate fruit notes. The coconut mostly comes through as a rounded vanilla flavor that softens the richness of the malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aggie80 (806) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2016
The aroma was malty with just a hint of coconut. Cola colored pour with a small off white head and little lacing. Toasted coconut flavor competes with the malts. Finishes with a sort of sun screen coconut flavor in the aftertaste.

tfontana (597) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Aroma is strong coconut over nuts, caramel and vanilla. Appearance is clear dark amber to red with minimal sparkle, two-finger width frothy beige head with poor retention and minimal trace lacing. Taste is strong coconut and toffee/caramel (like a dark coconut rum). Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thick, creamy texture, average-to-lively carbonation and sweet, long finish. Overall, the coconut dominates and ordinarily might make me deduct points from veering too far from a standard brown ale, but since it comes from Hawaii it seems like more of an authentic variation. Yum!
