COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beeruccino is a porter by malt recipe but designed to be a more than suitable replacement to a plain old after dinner cup of coffee. We use highly roasted malts in the mash then during the boil we add clean American hops and black pepper to match the complexities of locally roasted coffee we infuse it with. During fermentation we add almond wood chips which lend subtle vanilla notes to round it all out. While high in alcohol to aid in its aperitif intentions there is little to no noticeable alcohol “heat.” This beer pairs wonderfully with just about any dessert it’s put alongside but to be honest we like it as the dessert itself!

Thanks to tderoeck! Bomber sampled @ RBBWG IV. Gusher. Lighter shade of black, mocha bubbles. Nose is cold coffee, liquorish, herbs, herbal, grains. Carbonation is way too high and takes away from the taste. Tastes of vending machine coffee, chicory coffee, herbal, mocha, sugar sweet; Decent & enjoyable but definetly could be more.

From a bomber. Pours dark chocolate brown with a thick tan head. Tastes like booze, dark coffee, dark chocolate, burnt malt, roasted and earthy. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like booze, dark coffee, burnt malt, some dark chocolate, earthy, and roasted.

Idiosynkrasie (4922) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2015
650ml bottle. Jet black colour with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of roasted coffee beans, mocha coffee, a sugary touch. Taste is moderately sweet, roasty dark malty, mocha coffee notes, a cautious touch of vanilla, minimally papery overtones, a pepper note titillates the tip of the tongue throughout. Well composed, adequately spiced, in the end rather one dimensional, compact exposition of the coffee added. Possible tiramisu-surrogate.

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Black pour with a thin light khaki head. Slightly metallic tone on the nose, but there’s also the earthy dark cocoa and bitter espresso bits. Nice full flavor with some earthy sweet espresso and sweet chocolatiness tempered by some roasty bitterness. Okay. Nothing too exciting here but enjoyable for sure.

sonnycheeba (4250) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, vanilla, coffee, faint caramel, and some earthiness. Flavor is rich roasty malt profile with notes of espresso and dark chocolate along with medium hop bitterness, and subtle sweetness. Medium/full body.

RichardW (1739) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle, Ales by Mail. Pours a very deep black ruby colour, with a lively foamy head. Its like inhaling coffee beans and rubber, there’s a little yeasty note and then, right at the back of the throat, just the slightest peppery catch. Very fizzy on the tongue, with good rich roast malt flavours, a little acrid touch on top and, overall, exceptionally subtle for 7.2%, with just a little warm glow in the chest to let you know its there!

Bottle from Benzai. Thanks! @ RBBWG 2015. Dark brown, light brown foam. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts and espresso. Bitter, bit metallic and too much carbonation.

jtclockwork (10888) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of coffee, black pepper, green pepper, lightly soured chocolate and vanilla. Way over carbonated. Lighter bodied. Disappointing.
