Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is chocolaty with some roasted'ness, and the flavour is mildly bitter with malty chocolatyness. Overall a nice chocolaty beer.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark ruby color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

12 oz bottle poured a nice reddish mahogany, clear, but with a small and short-lived head. Leaves some lacing nonetheless. The aroma is dominated by toasted coconut, there’s a hint of malt but not much else.
Taste: fortunately, the flavor is much more balanced than the aroma indicates, with a decent medium-roast malt backbone and plenty of toasted coconut flavor. Some hints of spicing and hops appear in the finish and aftertaste. Medium-light body with good carbonation. Smooth.
O: While only slightly sweet (and actually turning a bit bitter in the finish), this beer still seems best suited for use as a desert beer or, I imagine, as refreshment on a hot day. BeerFlavoredBeer (260) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2012
The best of the coconut recipes I have tried (granted, there aren’t many). Drinks easily and doesn’t overwhelm the palate. I went through two of these, back-to-back, and could certainly enjoy a few more without tiring of it. Very mild. rand (1820) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Garnet brown ale with short and fleeting head. Coconut on aroma and taste. Mild brown, toffy, roasted, macaroon. Not unpleasant or disgusting, not a great wonder either. Lacks a bit of subtlety, but chocolate toffee and coco. Certainly very good on the spot !

I really like it when a beer surprises me with uniqueness and this one did. Toasted coconut from start to finish with that lovely nutty brown flavor. Yum. jgb9348 (6474) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of coconut, malt, caramel, cardboard and a bit of earth and vanilla. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavour with a deep, bitter earthy bite showing a lot of permanent marker, some spice notes and a lot of caramel on the finish. Aftertaste is fairly one-dimensional with a lot of bittering notes and less malty, well-rounded flavours. Overall, a bit less than I was expecting, with a lot of strong ,assertive flavours dominating the taste and palate. Still, nice to try a new beer from Hawaii, but this one isn’t as good as it could have been. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 03-February-2012 for US$1.49 sampled at home in Washington on 09-October-2012.

Appearance was clear reddish brown with lasting tannish creamy 1 finger head, lacing throughout. Aromas are chocolate, coffee, caramel malts, slight spicey musky hops, then hints of coconut. Taste are sweet caramel, chocolate, coffee malts with slight spicey citrus hops and a touch of coconut. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body, then spicey average length malty finish. A good session brown with hint of coconut... Nik925 (798) - USA - OCT 6, 2012
This beer came very lowly recommended from friends, but a $3 bomber was worth the try for "toasted coconut". Friends were right as this is no good. Sorry. There is some tasty coconut in there, but it is if 99% covered by crappy burnt malt. Dear brewer: Brown ale gives you some flexibly, for sh1ts sake take it and run with a coconut flavor, as your malt is sketchy at best. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Nice inviting nose. Medium bodied. Good roasted malt profile. Pleasant bitterness. Dry nutty finish. Flawless and rather pleasant.
