Thought I rated this before, but anyways, more than enough times I poured this into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was obviously a brown color, fairly dark with a tan eggshell white foamy head. Minimal light lacing.
The aroma centers around some sweet coconut rubbing over some light toasty to roasty warm nuts, light pecans, some toffee and caramel malts.
The flavor balances nicely between all of those previously mentioned aromas and let’s in some chocolate. Light combined aftertaste leading into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. Wet smooth rich and creamy texture.
Overall, nice brown ale with coconut added. I would love to have again. stouby (4653) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle at home. Medium brown with a small light brown head. Aroma medium malty (roasted, notes of chocolate, heavy coconut). Flavor medium sweet, light chocolate, medium coconut. Medium body, a bit greasy, light carbonated. Salwal (486) - GERMANY - MAY 29, 2016
First of all I’m a huge Fan of Kona brews but this is definitely not my thing. The coconut ia blunt and very intrusive. Some roasted malts and Overall lovely brown color. However the nasty Cocktailish coconut flavours linger make it very unpleasent for me... MGH1580 (8) - - FEB 10, 2016 does not count
Coconut is subtle, but I wish it had more influence over the taste of this brown ale. DrNosha (2274) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2015
0,33l Flasche auf Hawaii. Irrer Duft. Kokosnussöl, kakao, Vanille, Röstmalz. Dunkelbraune Farbe, wenig Schaum. Im Antrunk röstig bitter. Dann kommt die geröstete Kokosnuss. Leicht ölige Konsistenz. Eines meiner ungewöhnlichsten Biere!

Not the best experiment with coconut and beer. The taste and aroma are clearly come from coconut(what else). Foam, body and sense is of a low quality. Maybe a good combination for your Bounty chocolate. GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Medium brown with a good pale head. Aroma is chocolate, dates, malt, coconut. Medium-full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, sweet and malty on the palate with a short sweet finish. Flavours are chocolate, coconut, dates. dutch23mp (317) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Really unique beer the hint of coconut (even though I don’t care for coconut) is really refreshing and does wonders for the palate. really a good beer and the quality of the ingratiates does show. Hats off to the 50th state on a well crafted brew. Ahentz (4) - Pontoon Beach, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 I expected a beer with a hint of coconut, but its the opposite. Strong coconut but pretty good occasional beer. Definitely glad i tried it!
