UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Draft. Pours Amber without head but a little lace at the to of the glass. Aroma is minimal but had some nuts and roast. Taste is nutty with some cocoa and coconut. Different.. and the coconut may make this a one and done for me. DTM (798) - Vacaville, California, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle from the 76 Station in Davis, CA. Poured a dark brown color and smelled of roasted malt. I could definately taste a little bit of coconut. There was a plethora of roastiness to it. Not bad and an easy drinker. jkwood04 (5452) - Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2012
12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours brown with a light tan head. Aroma of toasted coconut, caramel and some light chocolate malts, and hints of citrusy hops. Flavor of coconut works well with a brown ale. Average texture. An interesting beer. BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2012

Clear brown pour with a sparse head. Aromas of nuts, toasted malt, roast, and a bit of chocolate. Toasted coconut flavor up front with some sweet malt and nuttiness.

Kona koko brown - pour is dark burgundy with tight tan head. Nose is nice, caramel malt with the toasted coconut blended in well. Some vanilla and fudge notes, toasted marshmellow, behind create a nice balance. The taste is much of the same. Light on the coconut with the nice fudge and vanilla. A hint watery in the finish but well blended malts and sweetness. Lighter body, higher carb probably is what detracts from the finish but smooth and soft on the palate.

Rich dark color, sweet chocolate and coconut aroma, strong coffee/chocolate flavor at first, slightly bitter coconut middle and a creamy almost buttery finish, thick and silky mouthfeel. A great beer but to much sweetness to drink more than a few at a time. Suttree (6430) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2012
Clear brown, nice dense brown head. I get maple, molasses, and of course coconut. Taste is what Hawaiian Tropic smells like, if that makes any sense. Nice mix of coconut and traditional Brown Ale flavors. I would buy this again. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Single bottle purchased from an ABC store on Kauai Island on 04/07/2012. Colour: Light brown with minimal head. Nose: Lots of burnt barley and malt. Buttery coconut comes in light waves. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. The coconut creaminess coats the cooked malt beautifully for a great mouth feel. Besides that, the balance of the malt-hop-coconut play is off and there is tugging in several directions. The finish is better as it settles to a suttle sweet coconut.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with tan fizzy head. Aroma of subtle toasted coconut with hints of chocolate with signs of dark roast. Flavor is much the same with an off-dry characteristic. Mouthfeel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew but I enjoyed it more after the first bottle.
