"Kona is smooth and dry, neatly hopped, has caramel appeal and a dash of sweetness".

Clear, deep, dark mahogany in color, with a fine tan head and very good lacing.
Not much except coffee in the nose. At first, it seems like the taste will follow, but a substantial roasted malt component soon kicks. It eventually fades leaving a lasting coffee aftertaste. I liked this beer, and the coffee component in particular, more than their Single Origin. Single Origin, however, is a more unusual brew.

O: Recommended.

If you like coffee you'll like this beer. I tried both the Kona and the cask Kona. The regular was a little bit too carbonation for my taste, so I enjoyed the cask Kona more. It's a light (not heavy) beer that I liked better than Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter, which while a porter, is similar in flavor.

Obviously a Brown Ale.
A solid one at that.

Coffee bomb... Which is an improvement over earlier renditions.
