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, 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!

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.

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 (9433) - 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 (2831) - 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
