This beer has an awesome nutty flavour to it that I just can’t get out of my head. Sure I was on holiday and had had a few before this, but definitely one of the best beers I’ve had. Reminds me a bit of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. broowater (10) - Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2011
First taste was at the Kona Brewery, Hawaii on tap (pint glass) and was elated to find it bottled mainland! Coconut aroma is sweetly floral but is grounded by a nutty malt taste. Slight sweetness is balanced by light hops making for a refreshing beer, and like they say, Liquid Aloha! MarkSachon (1023) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a frosted mug at Billy’s in Pittsburgh, PA. Quite delicious with plenty of coconut that doesn’t overpower the other wonderful stuff in here. This is a beer that’s waiting to be discovered. ucsbrandon (3) - - JAN 11, 2014 does not count
Damn I love this beer and do a happy dance when I see it’s come out for the winter. Roasty, sweet smell with a medium head. Great tasting brown on its own but made even more so with the coconut. Definitely not subtle but not overpowering either. Better on location, but still amazing in the bottle. Wildbeer1 (1) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2017 does not count
My favorite beer so there is very little room for improvement. I love the toasted coconut and hint of chocolate. Comparable to DuClaw’s Dirty Little Freak.

At the Honolulu airport Kona Brewing pub. Probably the best Kona I’ve had. Clear dark amber color with slight foam offwhite head and some lace. Sweet malt flavor with noticeable coconut. Not as intense as the Maui Coconut Porter, but still an impresive beer. Very nice lingering aftertaste. boisebeer (57) - boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Great beer that I have had on tap and in the bottle.
First had @gabf.
Love the cocoanut. It is pure bliss with the toasted coming through. I taste a butterscotch in there as well but who knows.

Medium red brown with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is caramel, hazelnuts, toasted coconut, and graham crackers. Flavor is primarily sweet, but not overpowering in any way. Body is on the lighter side. This beer is almost a dessert by itself, with a little chocolate you could have somoa girl scout cookies. YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 I adore everything about this beer. Potentially my favourite (although I admit my prominent bias due to my love of browns and coconut). A pungent nutty coconut scent that smells of actual coconut as opposed to candy. Creamy, medium body. Every aspect of the taste is wonderful. Gustatory bliss. Malt, coconut, caramel, and some mild bitterness and hops to finish just to ensure that the beer isn’t too sweet. Kona Koko Brown: I love you. Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Wow...the toasted coconut is a fantastic original addition to an already flavorful brown ale. Dark brown pour with a medium caramel head. Great nutty aroma with an excellent finish. Kona makes some great beers but this is my favorite of theirs.
