I always thought about a coconut ale but I thought the coconut oil would hinder the carbonation. Maybe the toasted takes care of that.

I can't say if coconut in the mash will impact carbonation, but I've toasted it and added to secondary and I had little if any problems with carb (I force carb).

I make a chocolate coconut porter & I didn't have any issues with carbonation. I've both bottle conditioned & kegged. Maybe a bit poor on head retention but not too bad.
