COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, decent cream colored head, fades to a skiff, body is deep ruby red brown. Aroma, coconut, malt, root beer, faint metal. Taste is malt, coffee, coconut, root beer. Palate is smooth and rich, and almost oily, carbonation moderate. This has great balance, and lots of drinkability!

Deep reddish brown with thin head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is similarly delicious and sweet. Hazelnut is the strongest flavor, but also has toasted coconut and a little chocolate. Finish resembles sugary cereal milk. Palate is oily and medium bodied.

Bottle. Clear brown in color with a light tan head. Aroma is a nutty, roasted coconut with very slight hints of chocolate. Taste is caramel, coconut, tree nuts and roasted grains but not overly swet. Nice beer.

Bottled December 22, 2015 and enjoyed in a stemless win glass February 19, 2016. Look - Reddish light brown. Thin medium bubbled white head. Blotchy lacing. Smelll - Traditional ale. Vanilla. Coconut. Malt. Chocolate. Taste - First sip was very old fashioned ale. Continued sips were vanilla, chocolate, nut, spice, and chocolate. Dont forget coconut. Feel - Watery. Not overly carbonated. Overall - Good flavor for what it is. I could even go as far as saying complex. Coconut and chocolate.

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Poured on tap. Sweet coconut and chestnut nose and flavor. Rich slightly opaque nut brown color but breaking copper on the edges with a medium tan to white head that sticks healthy on the glass. Roast notes with subtle coffee. Coconut has a noticable role but not dominant. Very enjoyable balance and could drink many. Of the other coconut beers, this is one of the best I have had so far. Delicious.

A Brown Ale with coconut? Kudos for the idea, Kona. Know what? It actually works. Koko has medium body with lots of buttery chocolate and some nuttiness. The coconut pairs beautifully and adds a creaminess to the toasted malt layers. The coconut doesnt reach the rich levels Ive experienced in a few coconut Porters, but the flavors are still quite candy-like. The suggested food pairing for Thai curry is a damn good one. I might just have to try that sometime soon.

Pours a clear rich brown from a bottle. Aroma of coconut flavored coffee. I get a lot more coffee notes in the flavor profile as well, but again some coconut wheezes along behind, crossing the finish line behind everything else. Meh.
