Notes/Commercial Description:
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of this island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that sends you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a Koko Brown, brewed with real toasted coconut, and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste.

3.7/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

No Freshness dating.

A= Pours a hazy light brown color with a thin head that is a little whispy in appearance. The head doesn't last long and leaves some spotty lacing behind.

S= The smell is typical brown ale in the nose. Nice sweet caramel malts and a faint whisp of coconut that makes itself known.

T= The taste is again typical brown with the caramel malts. I get a little roast malt from it on the back of my tongue. The coconut is a little more subtle in the taste but there is a sweetness that comes over it post swallow that makes the coconut known.

M= Well done.

O= I've had a lot of this beer. One of the things I like about it is that it's a unique flavor with the coconut without being over bearing. Kona does a nice job of adding unique ingredients without making it taste gimmicky. I love this beer.

4.01/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

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.
