Great beer that I have had on tap and in the bottle.
First had @gabf. now on tap here in Boise at 13th street grill.
Love the cocoanut. It is pure bliss with the toasted coming through. I taste a butterscotch in there as well but who knows.
This is a different brown but one of my fav. for my fav. style

A: Deep brown, a little lacing, good retention.
S: You can definitely smell the coconut. Reminds me of a pina colada. Dark malt, sugar.
T: Really coconutty. Like entirely coconut, with a light backing of malt. Really good, but surprising!
M: Light. Dry. Carbonation could be higher. Light body.
D: Perfect - goes down as well as any refreshing soda! I could drink this so fast on a hot summer day!
Enjoyed at the Oregon Brewer's Festival 2010

Appearance: Ruby-brown with lots of foam. Little carbonation. Fairly thin.
Smell: Creamy coconut. Extremely unique.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Root beer, coconut, and some coffee. Very creamy and better when it warms to room temperature.
Overall Drinkability: An outstanding beer. Excellent tropical feel for a dark beer.

I had this beer at the Kona Brewery on the big island of Hawaii. I am a fan of this brewery and couldn't wait to taste this beer. It poured medium brown / slightly amber with a nice off-white head. Great lacing down the glass.
You could definitely smell the coconut aroma right off the bat. It had a slightly sweet taste. Big coconut flavor, but not so overpowering it wasn't drinkable. Caramel and a roasted malt taste. Overall very pleasant and easy drinking.
I wish I could get it on the east coast!

appearance - looks like your standard brown ale. thin, sticky lacing down the side of the glass. small, off white head.
smell - smells like malts and coconut. bready and sweet, not much of a hop smell present. pretty inviting. the coconut brewed beers here in hawaii are usually pretty stellar.
taste - pretty coconutty up front, tastes more like mature coconut than green. has a weird taste, not quite musty, becomes inviting as i keep drinking. as the beer warms, the coconut comes out even more. it's kept in check by a background of bready malts and just enough hops to have a lingering bitterness. i wasn't sure on my first sip, but i am now - i like this beer.
mouthfeel - light and crisp. nothing unexpected, which is perfect for the style.
drinkability - only thing that keeps this from being the perfect session beer is that i don't know if i could drink it all the time.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a Stella stem glass. Body is a ruddy brown with reddish highlights, topped by a small amount of creamy tan head. Sweet aroma of toasted malt, toasted coconut, a litttle bit of brown sugar, and just a hint of sweet, dark fruit.
Palate is big on sweet, slightly toasty malt and a hint of fruity hops. Notes of toasted coconut and Hershey's syrup are prevalent. Finish is a lingering sweetness from the rich darker malt profile and the coconut.
Body is creamy and robust, but not too thick. This is, after all, a brown ale, but with much more flavor than the usual English variety. I think this is an interesting twist on what's usually a pretty boring style.
