Growler courtesy of Greg. Pours black. Nose is insane amounts of coconut, almond joy, cocoa, vanilla and roasty grains. Flavor is a rich sweet coconut, fresh vanilla bean, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. This is the most coconut flavor I have ever had in a beer. Awesome!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler, courtesy of Beerlando. Pours dark brown bordering on black with a tan short-lived head. Smells and tastes like the beer equivalent of a Mounds bar. Tons of chocolate and coconut, mild hints of almonds. Silk chocolate, sweet. Lush, silky mouthfeel that I think the coconut enhanced beyond the typical milk stout mouthfeel. You can really taste the coconut in this one. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler of Three Hour Tour. Pours dark, almost black with tan head. Aroma was strong coconut, chocolate and booze. Taste is much of the same with more of milk added to the mix. Very smooth. Good to try, but not a must have for me.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 Growler of Three Hour Tour. Pours almost black, showing a deep, dark mahogany color in the light. A thin, light brown head shows at the head, leaving some spotty splotches of lacing behind on the glass. The aroma is that of a straight up liquid Mounds bar, insanely chocolaty, showing both rich semi-dark and creamy milk varieties, with loads of coconut and velvety lactose. Seriously, thought the nose is simple, it’s absolutely mouth watering, invoking notes of my favorite childhood candy bar. Flavors follow suit exactly, chocolaty as can be, with more natural coconut flavor than any beer I can recall. Layer after layer of creamy, lightly bitter chocolate and luscious, fatty coconut meat prove to be a match made in heaven, and the milky lactose fits in perfectly as well. The palate proves creamy, silky, and oily, showing not so much as a hint of alcohol. Perfectly carbonated, it glides right down the throat with substantial viscosity and a soothing feel. This beer is proof that a simple concept, if perfectly executed, can be just an intensely enjoyable as the most complex of brews. Fantastic. Right up there with Shorts Über Goober as one of the best sweet stouts I’ve ever had.

Sampled at GABF 2009 as 3 hour tour. Dark pour, looks pretty nice. Aroma of chocolate, candy, some lactic notes. Flavor is chocolate and coconut. And some milk stout qualities. Yeah, Can’t really do the coconut thing, but glad I tried it.

black pour with a tan head. Aroma is up friend chocolate and coconut. Flavor is just blatant coconut with a bit of lactose and chocolate behind. Finishes too sweet, good carbonation. I couldn’t finish my pint, too sweet.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2009 Tap at Town Hall. Black pour, head quickly dissipates. Chocolate/coconut aroma and flavor, sweet tasting. Smooth & creamy finish. This stuff is like a Mounds bar in a pint glass.

Sample at GABF 2009. Pours a dark brown to black color with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, honey, coconut, nuts, chocolate, light roast. Flavor is about the same. Medium body with a pleasing malty coconut finish. Interesting ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewery. Near black in colour with low carbonation. Aromas are of toasted coconut, milk chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is like a macaroon, with loads of toasted coconut, vanilla, chocolate, and toasted malts. Fairly sweet and slick in the mouth, but remains quite drinkable. A tad more roasty, and this would have been a blockbuster. As it stands, it’s still very good.
