The Twelfth Beer o' Xmas 2012: Kona Koko Brown

Well we made it, beer number twelve. It seems like it was only a dozen days ago we started this inebriating adventure together. How time flies. To reward you for coming back and giving a shit we have a nice sweet & malty brown ale for you; or to leave for Santa with some of those special brownies you got from uncle Tim. So for the last damn time.....

For the Twelfth Beer o' Xmas that the.... oh fuck it. Kona's Koko Brown Ale!

Pours a clear redish/mahogany color with a finger of off white head quickly dissipates leaving only some trace foam on top The nose of toasted coconut sweet roasty malts.The taste starts with toasted coconut and a dominating sweet malt character, then fades to sweet toffee notes at the end. The finish has a barely noticeable hint of piney hops. It's somewhat thin, which in this case does the beer many favors, a moderate mouthfeel would have made this a sweet mess. Try it with some roasted meat or a Holiday pie.

Cheers & Happy "Whatever it is That Floats Your Boat".

The next time you go to your liquor store, ask someone there to do an inventory search. They should be able to tell you what's out there and where.

Cheers

I have stopped at many different state stores and asked them to locate items for me. Every person has been more then helpful, they have even called and had stuff set aside. You just have to ask.
