On tap at Town Hall in Minneapolis. You wouldnít think that coconut would be a good flavour for beer, but this is one of the most delicious beers Iíve ever tasted. Sweet. Rich. Dark. Light, not too heavy. I love it so much.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2011 Tap. Ahhh, 3 Hour Tour, so we meet again. I have been craving this beer ever since i had it last year. Pours a nice dark brown with a tan 1 finger head. The aroma is coconut right off the bat and in your face followed by mild dark chocolate and vanilla. The taste is liquid Mounds Bar through and through! The coconut flavor is present the entire time but you also do get some dark chocolate, vanilla, and roast coffee notes. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Some people I talked to have said 1 is enough as it can be a little sweet but for me, this by far is the best coconut beer and I could drink it everyday, all day.
2011: Version seems slightly more roasty and a little less coconut than I recall. Mouthfeel seems a little lighter as well. Still pretty awesome though and one of my favorite!

Rich cocoa goodness throughout, just a nice, roasted stout of normal, even quality...and then the coconut hits you on the back end of the palate, and you realize youíre drinking a dark chocolate Mounds bar. The finish is coconut oil, making it very different from things like Maui CoCoNut porter which is more roasted/German Chocolate Cake like. Beer that I would love to see bottled on shelves; the reality is practically the polar opposite.

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, itís 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 ‹ber Goober as one of the best sweet stouts Iíve ever had.

Growler of Three Hour Tour, courtesy of BDR. Black color with a medium head. Big coconut aroma and some light roasty notes. Holy coconut taste. Itís like opening a bag of shredded coconut and just going to town on it. Slightly toasted, too. Light chocolate and roast. A bit of lactose sweetness. Freakin delicious.

Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Poured a deep brown with a medium tan head. Nose is incredible, huge toasted coconut profile perfectly blended with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Full body with a smooth, creamy mouth feel and modest carbonation. The flavor of this beer is as good as or better than itís aroma. More big notes of toasted coconut, milk chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla. Even the huge notes of coconut in this beer it still manage to be perfectly balanced and highly drinkable. Finishes medium sweet. This was by far the best coconut beer I have ever tried.

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!

Liquid candybar, anyone? pours heavy black with very little head. nose is sweet coconut with maybe a slight hint of chocolate. taste is very much the same. the coconut is very pronounced but smooth and not overpowering. blends extremely well with the stout flavors. this is excellent.
