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.

3.53/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with a chestnut colored body that was semi-clear...two fingers worth of bubbly white head formed and stayed pretty full...nice lacing

S - The nose was very nutty with toasted notes standing out...it had a semi-sweetness to it with burnt caramel leading the way

T - Sweeter flavors start things off before the toastiness kicks in...the toasted flavors are coconuts and other nuts...there is an earthy hop presence towards the finish...the caramel comes back to add more sweetness and take the edge off the toastiness...the finish tastes like cream soda

M - Medium bodied...sweet and toasty, soft carbonation

O - I was looking forward to this coconut beer, but I was left with a little disappointment...a little too sweet and overly toasted...I prefer the other coconut flavored beer from Hawaii...MAUI!

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.
