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.

Emeister84 (2170) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Definitely pick up on the toasted coconut right away, along with some aromas of toffee and milk chocolate. Clear dark ruby with a mostly lasting, khaki head. Lightly sweet with milk chocolate, vanilla, and coconut flavors all over the palate, and balanced by just enough bitterness to maintain a malt-forward, coconut-influenced, brown ale. Medium body, though very creamy, lively carbonation, and finishes pretty clean, with lingering, toasted coconut flavors.

Idiosynkrasie (6534) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear (?) mahogany colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Nuttily, dark malty aroma with a chocolately touch, "holistic" notes of coconut ("inside" and "outside" parts), a touch of roast, Taste is dry, dark malty, rather intense notes of coconut run the spectrum of variations from fresh to roasty; chocolately interludes. Lasting finish, minimally sticky palate. Absolutely convincing use of coconut.

mjs (6534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB Feb 10 16, 20160825) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had roasted malts, coconut and caramel. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, coconut, caramel, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A decent brew where the coconut was hidden almost enough.

reebtogi (5754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
355ml bottle pours a dark amber brown color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coconut and chocolate with some caramel. Taste is a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a light herbal bitterness and coconut throughout. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brown ale that is balanced and tasty.
