Beer of the Week 24 Koko Brown

Kona Brewing Company's Koko Brown

From the label:

Koko Brown’s distinctive, nutty aroma and flavor comes from real toasted coconut blended into each brew. One sip of this roasty, smooth, mahogany colored ale and you will feel like you are on a warm sun-drenched beach in Hawaii. Aloha!

From my notes:

Thin head, light caramel colored, smells like coconut and malts. Tastes of roasted nuts with a coconut finish. Subtle bitterness at the end. Dry, with a medium, creamy, body.

 

I need to get some other types of glasses..

I really didn’t know what to think when I read the Koko Brown label and saw that the beer was brewed with toasted coconut. It sounded interesting but while I’m okay with coconut I’m not a super-fan. I’m glad I did though. Koko Brown is a nice American Brown Ale and the coconut is well balanced. Very drinkable.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.

  1. Sounds good to me. I tasted Guinness Stout for St. Paddy’s and was amazed by how much I liked it. My standby is from the local microbrew, Ninkasi IPA, but in my youth the Guinness was my average beer. Could be second-childhood effects?
