Pour: Clear, dark reddish-brown color. Two fingers of off-white head that had average retention and some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: Coconut is the forerunner of the aroma. Supported by a bit of roasted malt and coffee. Rather interesting.
Taste: Once again, the coconut is very much the star of the taste, though it doesn't dominate everything. Tied together by some molasses/caramel in the front, a nutty quality in the middle, and a coffee-like back end. Quite good, I think.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, but a little overcarbonated I think. Makes for a rather prickly feeling on the tongue.
Drinkability/Overall: Drinks like a fizzy soda due to the carbonation. Good flavors, and very sessionable. Not too filling.
Final Notes: A rather interesting experiment by Kona, but it paid off. This Brown Ale is both interesting and unique, and tastes great. The coconut adds a little something special, I think, and would serve to make it a great semi-sweet beer to pair with some dessert. I dig it.

Tulip pour and I am met with an amber colored ale with nice burgundy highlights. Beige head that dissipates too quickly. Ring around the glass.
Aroma is chocolate with nice coconut whiffs. Semi-sweet chocolate and cocoa round it out. Also getting some good vanilla whiffs.
Taste is like the smell. Chocolate and coconut. They did a great job incorporating the coconut and highlighting it in this brew.
Much too thin in the mouthfeel. Watery.
Overall I was happily surprised by this. I am not a huge Kona fan, but this completely made me turn back for another go around. Well done beer.
