Been after this one for a full year, finally landed a growler and was disappointed across the board. Aroma lacked depth, showing minimal vanilla and only traces of coconut. Taste is similarly shallow. Begs for more lactose, coconut, and overall depth of flavor. Last Snow puts Three Hour Tour to shame.

Tap at Town Hall, I described this as liquid girl scout samoa’s though almond joy is fitting as well... its just a sweet stout with awesome amounts of coconut if thats your thing.. and its definitely mine. This beer rocked, only deduction in taste was for it being almost too sweet to want 10 full ounces.

On tap at Town Hall with ElGaucho. Dark pour with a dark caramel head. Heavy coffee/chocolate nose but the taste is like a dark chocolate almond joy. Awesome coconut flavor and a bit nutty. Not too heavy considering and a nice abv that isnt over powering.

3 Hour Tour draft at brewery. Had this at autumn brew review and it was among the more memorable beers at the fest. String dark chocolate aroma with coffee notes as well. Black body with thin tan head. Served ice cold. Like Falco242 mentioned, this is liquid Almond Joy, only better cuz it has alcohol. Amazingly flavorful for only 5.6% alc. smooth, creamy and lightly carbonated. Has a hint of nut and more
than a hint of coconut. Outstanding!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and minimal lacing. Aroma is coffee, toasted coconut, and light whiskey. Flavor is about the same with roasted malt and chocolate notes. Quite sweet but not cloying, minimal bitterness. Medium body. Not sure if i would call this great, but it was very interesting.

As 3 our tour. I loved the front end. Cocoa-y stout, but the aftertaste wrecked it. Slight and aid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Pitch black pour with a medium khaki head and a partial ring of lace. Aroma of malt and coconut. Light and creamy body with flavors of toasted coconuts, malt and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a coconut aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
