Appearance: a light brown color with a wispy head that breaks apart quickly.

Smell: coconut and brown sugar sweetness is easy to detect.

Taste: mild malt levels here. Coconut is up front with some milder chcoclate and brown sugar tones. Bitterness is mild at best and this beer is a bit on the sweeter side overall.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Aftertaste is long lived as the coconut sweetness seems to linger a while.

Overall: this seems to be a beer to try at least once, but as the glass emptied I was looking for something else on the menu. Overall a bit too sweet for my liking in a brown ale.

Had this one on tap at the Koko Head Marina brewpub. I was happy to hear they had this one on tap, as I had read about it earlier this year, and made it one of the beers I really wanted to try. I wouldn't put it up there with Maui Brewing Co. Coconut Porter, which I like a lot, but it's still very good. With it being a brown ale, I wasn't sure how it would measure up to the MBC beer, but was pleasantly surprised at how well it went together. The coconut wasn't too overbearing with the brown ale malts, balanced out well actually. My wife thought it was ok, which is impressive, because she doesn't like coconut at all. That just shows how the coconut wasn't too "in your face". Overall a decent beer from KBC. Glad to see them try this one out, hopefully we'll see it in bottles at some point, but who knows.
