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.

This beer is fabulous! A solid brown that does not over power with coconut just a hint that complements a very good brew, I want more

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Toffee, toasted coconut, vanilla, caramel. Pretty tasty. Better than I was expecting. Not something I can drink a lot of though. It's a little too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

You know, this was a surprisingly good beer. I loved the aromas of caramel and coconut, with a nutty hint in there too. Poured a nice dark brown with a beige head. Flavors were awesome! fresh coconut, caramel, some roast, roasted nuts, light coffee and cocoa. This is a great brown ale in my opinion.

Like this brown ale from kona. Kind of sweet a little chocolately. Super crushable and smells like chocolate. Pours almost black in color. Had at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color. Malty with a hint of coconut. Very mild finish with a very slight touch of hops. Tried this at the Federal Taphouse in Lancaster.

Pours a nice brown color with off-white head. Coconut, roasted malt, and some bready notes on teh nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice little sweetness from the coconut.

The coconut’s been caramelised, the toffee has been spread on toast and we’re all gonna have a fun time with this ruddy mahogany treat. Big malty Kahuna spell cast on this ale. Some light, limey citrus hop punch blended well keeps this barley brah from getting too cozy. I love coconut beer in the right context and this does it nicely, if anything it needs to be more pronounced and then balanced by more hops.
