Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans... and put them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to create a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.

poured from a can into a tuliped snifter. dark brown almost black pour with a foamy gray brown head that doesn’t stick around, but laces nicely. Smells coffee, roasty, vanilla, a little lighter in the nose than I thought it’d be. Taste is pretty big on sweet coffee. Dark chocolate bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but I shouldn’t hold it up to stout standards. Some hop bitterness. Good strong porter

Brown pour, espresso and toffee forward with lighter coffee flavor on the flavor and a little residual chocolate flavor. Good stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet milk and a little cocoa. Very solid actually. Abv is well hidden.

This is one of the best stout beers I've ever had. It is packed with flavor and hits on all cylinders. I was a big skeptic of the can, but this one is done right. It's by far one of my favorites to recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

a nice skinny can bought as a single. Really a nice mocha beer with medium body and easy sweet drinkability for 10% abv beer. Chococlate was there but creamy coffe dominated profile. Was a bit knocked for a loop after drinking this, sneesk up on you. Good but not above other chocolate/coffee beers out there.

Rated 3/28/13. Thanks to Momar42 for the 12 oz can! Poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a two finger mocha shade. I’m fairly impressed with the retention given the gravity, and the lacing left down the glass is beautiful and consistent. S: There’s a good amount of chocolate and coffee on the nose. The coffee seems to take on a hazelnut quality to it; always a good thing here. A bit of booze come through to the nose, as well. T: Alcohol is far more prevalent on the flavor profile, unfortunately. Most of the booziness is concentrated on the opening flavors. The finish, however, sees a surge of lightly roasted nuttiness that I enjoy somewhat, along with some more heavily roasted coffee. Some umami notes tie this together - actually, a lot of umami notes tie this together. Other notes of hazelnut and toasted oak appear, giving it some good complexity. Ultimately, I think the savory qualities are a bit too strong for their own good. M: There’s good creaminess within the texture, but it’s a bit more carbonated than I like from such a creamy feel. More damning is the fact that it doesn’t go down particularly easily, likely from the prevalent alcohol. O: I think this could have kicked ass if it were, say, 8% and just a touch sweeter (not cloying, though). As it stands, it feels too much like hard work drinking it. Not bad at all, though - certainly a unique take on a ’coffee and chocolate’ brew.

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 12-oz. can. Strong coffee aroma with cinnamon. A medium brown color with no head. Solid coffee taste with pronounced hop bitterness and some cocoa on the back end. Fairly light body with a moderately bitter finish. This one was so much better than the previous can I had. Another solid Sixpoint offering.

This is a nice beer. I dont get any barrel character as it says its barrel aged but I do get plenty of coffee and cocoa with a nice brown ale/porter backbone that isnt really roasty but more sweet malty.

This is a robust porter crossing the line with an american stout, but double (Imperial) at 10% Alcohol, which you will notice on the taste as a warming alcohol. Let this treat warm up to about 50-55F and the complex malt (roast, chocolate, toast) will come forward really nice. The aftertaste is a bit astringent from the alcohol, not just the dark malts. But that subsides as it warms up as well.

12oz can. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy mocha head. Aroma of espresso, roasted malts, and milk chocolate. Taste of strong coffee, rich milk and bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, and some vanilla.
