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.

Pours a clear red with a tan head. Smells of coconut, other roast nuts, cereal. Taste is primarily sweet, notable presence of coconut, mild bitterness, creates an interesting if not altogether pleasant combination. Needs either more coconut or less, this beer seems unsure of its character.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pours dark brown with some amber hues of light shining through the glass. Big off white head that quickly recedes to a thin film on the top. Nose is caramel, ginger root, toasted coconut and light grass. Taste is sweet, with a very light bitter balance. It reminds me of cream soda. Hard to taste any alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, yet lively and crisp. Light body, long aftertaste.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2012
12oz bottle - pours more red than brown. A bit surprising there. Immediately hit by the roasted coconut aroma. Taste doesnt disappoint, either. A little on the sweet side, but a very enjoyable and very unique beer. Nice work!

22oz bomber, $2.99 at a liquor store a few blocks away from me in OB, that doesnt seem to see very high turnover. Clear light brown with a one finger kinda fizzy light beige head, low retention. I do get coconut in the nose, but it comes across as artificial, and actually seems like it was aged on cheap flabby bourbon. Once I get past that, there is some toasty nutty malt beneath. Flavor waxes and wanes with the crappy bourbon notes and real coconut, but the malt underneath is the same, except for a light added dry dog food grain aspect. This just doesnt seem like actual coconut to me, call me crazy. The finish is semi-dry, bitterness peaked at a 2 with a tinge of ashy roast. Lowish carbonation with a light body. I wanted to like this more.

portableparty (2303) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from RamyG4. Pours clear brown with a soft white soapy head that settles to a thin white film. Aroma shows a nice coconut scent wrapped with roaster malt all around and maybe a faint note of coffee. Taste is somewhat bitter at first, but then the coconut and roasted malt shows through with some vanilla and nutty flavors. Palate is thin to medium with a slick mouth feel and finishes chalky.

MercyDevice (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a full head. Nutty and roasty, but the coconut gives it a sweetness as well. You can definitely taste the coconut, which makes this very unique-tasting.

jake65 (3447) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle: Medium depth brown with a finger of khaki head. Nice aroma of roasted and toasted malts, just a little chocolate and coconut. Flavor is pedestrain brown ale roasted malt and, albeit faint, chocolate. Not picking up any coconut at all... light bittersweetness in the end, but this is uninspiring.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a deep amber/brown with aroma of vanilla, and tastes of cocoa powder. Good though.

ANGRYCPA (50) - - APR 27, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium brown with little to no head. Faint coconut aroma on the nose. Taste of coconut and vanilla blasts you in the face right away with some malts and very little bitterness. Super clean finish. I like it!

Pours a clear mahogany with a thin crab head. Aroma is toasted, nutty, and coconut. Flavor is toasted coconut, toast, nutty, and caramel. A lot of.sweetness.
