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.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Tasted on 8/9/12 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Turnip Truck in the Gulch. Pours clear, deep auburn with a very thick, rocky beige head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is nutty brown malt with a touch of milk chocolate, toffee, and tons of toasted coconut. The flavor is about the same with the toasted coconut and almond, milk chocolate, toffee, and even more coconut with a bit of a bitter back end. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long toasted, nutty coconut and lightly bitter finish.

Boutip (5351) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a medium size light brown foamy head with some retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet coconut is totally dominant. Taste is also dominated by loads of sweet coconut taste with light caramel malt also noticeable. Body is light with good carbonation. Interesting but overly sweet and the coconut is so powerful that it gets to be overwhelming.

More orange than brown with no head. Toast aroma and only slight coconut. More coconut in the flavor but malt ruse the day. Its okay but I need more coconut or a lasting flavor.

Cunningham (6052) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2015
A nice deep clear brown color with a fine tan head. Nutty, bready and vanilla aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. A bit unbalanced. Lots of vanilla in the flavor. Not to much, but it would be hard to drink two of this one.
