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.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small head. Smells of sweet coconut, malts, and leaves. Tastes of roasted nuts, lager, grasses, and coconut. A little too sweet in there for me.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Clear light brown, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is chocolate and coconut.

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.

Quick3Beers (631) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2016
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.

WVHouseofBeer (964) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with white head. Coconut, malty, toffee, molasses aromas. Coconut, roasty, malty, cocoa, brown sugar flavors. Overly sweet and coconuty.

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

12oz Flasche. Dunkelbraunes glänzendes Bier mit beigem cremigem Schaum. Aroma nach Röstmalz, Kokos, Nuss. Herb-süsser Antrunk. Sehr röstig. Öliges Mundgefühl. Bitteres Finish nach gerösteter Kokosnuss. Spannendes Bier.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
