COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brain child of Eddie Holley (Ale Yeah!), Koko Buni is a coconut coffee porter that is rich and delicious. Starting with a deep dark porter which was ‘dry-spiced’ with freshly toasted coconut flake, Tahitian vanilla beans, and cocoa nibs, for a week. Next we added the perfect amount of Ethiopian coffee from our friends at Steady Hand Pour House. A true delight.

the first time i had this beer was decatur beerfest in fall of 12. honestly, it was the beer of the festival. my wife and i returned several times to the tent for gluttonous refills. this time i acquired a growler from ale yeah store. the beer pours a clear deep brown with a large, creamy tan head. nose of roasted coffee. this beer tastes slightly different, however, from the tap version at the festival several months back. not quite as sweet and coconutty. this one has a more roasted barley flavor with the bitter ethiopian coffee being more up front and i’m not getting the vanilla. its still an excellent beer IMO, so i will rate as a combination from what i remember from the fest. thanks guys, love both of your fine establishments!

Deep brown with ruby hints and creamy tan head and lace. Coffee aroma with a hinto chocolate. Coffee on the front with a nice choco finish. Medium body with good carbonation but a hinto watery finish.

Rich, smoky aroma has a good note of coffee and hints of chocolate, vanilla and - yes, coconut. Comes out of the growler a sable so dark it might as well be black with a very thick and rather persistent light tan head that "pillows" as you drink away. Roast coffee flavor fills the mouth with chocolate, vanilla and malty flavors and a hint of coconut that nicely compliments the chocolate. Sweetness is at just the right level, neither subtle nor cloying. Smooth texture has decent fizz and body and a powdery hint. A truly excellent beer - pity this appears to be a one-and-done deal.
