From the bottle, aroma is malty and almost a bit of coffee and a touch soapy. Not much on appearance or head. The flavor is nice though, with the toasted coconut adding a small amount of creamyness and tropic touch. Overall a nice beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on tap. Sweet coconut and chestnut nose and flavor. Rich slightly opaque nut brown color but breaking copper on the edges with a medium tan to white head that sticks healthy on the glass. Roast notes with subtle coffee. Coconut has a noticable role but not dominant. Very enjoyable balance and could drink many. Of the other coconut beers, this is one of the best I have had so far. Delicious.

A Brown Ale with coconut? Kudos for the idea, Kona. Know what? It actually works. Koko has medium body with lots of buttery chocolate and some nuttiness. The coconut pairs beautifully and adds a creaminess to the toasted malt layers. The coconut doesn’t reach the rich levels I’ve experienced in a few coconut Porters, but the flavors are still quite candy-like. The suggested food pairing for Thai curry is a damn good one. I might just have to try that sometime soon.

Pours a clear rich brown from a bottle. Aroma of coconut flavored coffee. I get a lot more coffee notes in the flavor profile as well, but again some coconut wheezes along behind, crossing the finish line behind everything else. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown with a small white head. Slight coconut in the aroma but mostly nutty and roasted malt. Flavors have a little more coconut but the malt characteristics are the showcase here; nuts, chocolate and caramel sweetness. The body was a bit watery. Overall it didn’t have as much coconut as I was expecting but a pretty good beer nonetheless.

Brown color with a foamy head. Coconut is dominant in the aroma and taste, but not so irritating. Hint of roasted malt. Interesting.
