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.

Pairing: Koko Brown pairs well with coconut and caramel flavors, such as Thai curries, BBQ meats and carne asada. Its refreshing nutty aroma makes for the perfect beer after a day on the water.

That's a whole lotta cocoa nut.

I'm not big on cocoanuts, but I am big on browns. As far as cocoanut browns go, this one is one of the best and smoothest. The malts are right there with you the entire time while the character bounces around. I definitely pick up roasted caramel and cocoanut. As I'm not a cocoanut fan, this brew scored as well as it could.
