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!

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.

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.

Benzai (9320) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle @ RBBWG 2015 shared by me. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, incredible strong coffee and espresso. Taste malts, roasted malts, again strongly coffee, espresso, lightly earthy, lightly a hint of metal, firm coffee bitter. Medium body, firm even a bit too much carbonation. leave it for a while and it gets better as the carbonation subsides. I can see people not liking this but I love the hard espresso bitter flavors.

Bottle at RBBWG shared by Benzai. Pours dark brown. Aroma is espresso, coffee, chocolate. Very high carb, coffee, espresso. Not bad but onedimensional on the coffee flavours. Missing the Vanilla that's supposed to be in the taste according to the bottle.

drjay44 (2799) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2015
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained beige head, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 35) body....nose is coffee, cocoa, chocolate, herbal hops, no esters, balance to the malts and coffee....taste is slightly burnt sugar, coffee, chocolate, light vanilla, slightly toffee/caramel sweet, mild hop finishing bitterness, no esters, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, light carbonation, but with slight creaminess. The slightly burnt notes could be from the roasted malts, coffee, or a burnt boil in the kettle. It is not unpleasant, just a slightly discordant note. The sweetness becomes more apparent as it warms. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6

Sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit einer großen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch stark nach Kaffee, Schokolade und Vanille. Geschmack sehr schokoladig, Kaffee, leicht bittere Kaffeebohnen, etwas unrund.

Opaque black - brown beer, good fluffy pale tan head. Palate is airy and crispy and semi dry. Airy malts with dominant but mellow cofffee that is indeed a little cappucino in vibe. Trace of fruits before a light dry finish. Earthy coffee linger. Somewhat one dimensional and dry but all right.

olio (6771) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2014
65 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a medium sized beige head. Nice nutty bready aroma with lots of coffee, still fresh luckily. Lots of carbonation here, but the otherwise rich body balances it out, coffee and malts on the flavor, some chocolate too. Very nice and rich.

lusikka (6662) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2014
650 ml bottle. Thanks me, myself and I. Pours a pitch black colour with a foamy white head which settles down quite quickly. Aroma of rich roastiness, vanilla, roasted coffee, almond and some biscuit. Flavour of rich roastiness, very strong almond notes, vanilla, mild peppery spiciness, some mild harsh berryish notes and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit too high carbonation at first, but it settles down. Nice lingering bitter finish. Good.
