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.

Poured very dark brown with A tan head which quickly disappeared.

The smell is dark malts and a little sweetness from the coconut.

The taste is sweet and malty with the toasted coconut coming through.

The mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Didn't really taste like a brown ale but was still very enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- pours dark brown with medium fizzy head that dissapears quickly leaving nearly no head or lace.

S- ripe coconut, nutty, caramel candy bar, not much malt or hops.

T- Toasted coconut start, followed by a grainy husk, notes of coffee and caramel, prune juice, finishes dry with a faint hop linger.

M- medium body and carbonation, goes down quite slick.

O- a refreshing beer, especially when sampled in Hawaii. It lacks the malty character expected in a brown ale but is definitely worth a try.

Pours a two finger khaki head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Very dark brown color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Coconut nose. Flavor is a funky sweet coconut. Not your usual brown. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT. Bottled Mar 28, 12.
