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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Mildly sweet malt with a strong coconut note. This one is a tad fruity.

Taste: Strong coconut presence, the malt taste is a bit watered down. The finish is slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I loved the coconut flavor, but it really needs more to back it up. Just about what I expected.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle. Bottled on the 15 March 2012.

A - Brown reddish color. Small head with low retention and limited lacing on the glass.

S - Roasted coconut, malty, a bit spicy, and some gentle hop in the back.

T - At first, taste is dominated by coconut and malt. Hop progressively shows up to finish on a gentle alcohol warming touch.

M - Good carbonation. Medium body. Quite smooth on the palate.

O - Aromas and flavors are mild, but too discrete to my taste. Though, it's an unusual and pleasant beer!
