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.

Different, I'll say that.
Koko brown looks reddish amber and almost no head.
Smells bready with malt husky.
Coconut is quiet apparent on first sip, but tastes out of sorts. There is malty notes as well as vinilla too. A bit harsh feeling.
Perhaps the coconut flavor is a little too strong for me. I'll leave it.

It pours a clear reddish brown. It has an off white head with nice lacing and decent retention. The aroma is filled with toasted coconut and hints of caramel. The coconut transfers over the the taste very well, but It's not overpowering like I feared it would be. Instead it collaborates with malt and bitter cocoa for a very nice, very well rounded taste. The finish is very mild with a kiss of bitterness. It's medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
