Kona Brewing Co. - Koko Brown
Anyhow, here's my review:
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Beer appears dark brown; quite red when backlit. Head is a thick off white and very creamy. Lacing is dense and persistent.
Aroma: Lightly hopped, very malty. There's a bit of a hop tang, but not enough to send me packing. The coconut is very pronounced, but toasted – not cloying or sweet – as the official description promises.
Taste: The coconut hits first, but the slight sweetness rides over the tongue in a wave, allowing the maltiness of the beer to come forth before reasserting itself at the finish. There is little to no bitterness. Again, the coconut has a distinctly toasted flavor to it, but ideally so. Enough to notice, but not overdone and, therefore, acrid.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, but not weak. Carbonation could be slightly higher
Overall: I'll be honest, this beer was decent enough to plow through a six pack in 90 minutes. A hair too sweet for my tastes, but much less so than some other Brown Ales I've attempted.
Serving type: bottle
PS. How is there not an official critique database?
Look at the sticky above ^^^
strange I know... coconut and beer- but it is lovely... on a trip to Maui a few years back I made a daily stop at the Maui Brewing Company pub for couple of pints of Coconut Porter after a morning on the golf course... fantastic beer! It is OK in the cans (too expensive!) but it is fabulous off the tap!
Just tried it...interesting. definately a brew to try!
