Found this at my local Beermuda mixed and matched for around 2 dollars. Into a pint glass.
A - Very nice deep brown color with a 1/2 inch of mocha head that sticks around for quite a bit. Really good looking medium body on this brown.
S - Very strong toasted coconut with chocolate malt tones. Not subtle in any way just in your face. Getting some underlining hazelnut smells from the brown ale as well. Sweet.
T - Pretty much like Kona's Koko Brown but much more robust toasted coconut and great chocolate malt tones. Finish is rather sweet with some hazelnut twang and some hops. Really loving it.
M - Light to medium somewhat chewy. Decent body.

Overall this is a winner what a great experimental brew. I had my doubts with this since most beers they make are rather lackluster but this may be the best beer I had from them to date. I have never experienced such robust coconut flavor in a beer so if thats your thing BUY THIS NOW!

On tap (limited review):
Pours fairly clear dark brown, nice foamy head, sustaining with lacing.
Nose is pretty overwhelmingly milk chocolate
Taste is chocolate with a bit of coconut, as others have stated. Pretty sweet front, and a thinner, weak coffee-bitter tasting back. Mouthfeel is maybe just north of light.
Enjoyably flavored beer, but perhaps a bit strong (flavor, not ABV or feel) for some.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a cola color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, some coconut. Taste is like a mounds bar, yummy and tasty. Some alcohol is present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique beer worth seeking out.
