16 ounce can
This was opened sometime during the tasting with other big beers. Standing on its own it would make a good night. On a night like this was below average yet a nice change of pace. It’s strange to think of a 10% ABV beer that way. Buy a four pack if you can and check out a solid release.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish brown base pours a little lightly for a 10% beer. The head is not long lasting even with some agitation. Chocolate and coffee are at the fore of a bittersweet malty experience.

Flavor / Palate - Sweet iced coffee, chocolate, and then a dry bittersweet finish are the hallmark of a solid beer. It doesn’t stand out but it is not timid either. The hint of hops that pop up give it a nice depth. I look forward to a few more Sixpoint cans in the near future.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Draft This was enjoyed at Mekong. This is one of the best porters I have had recently. The Mekong serves in a 12 oz sniffer. The porter poured a near clear dark reddish brown color. The head was a frothy light brown with good lacing. The nose had roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. The medium body porter had soft carbonation. The smooth texture was most enjoyable and you hoped the glass would never empty. This is a complex porter that has a smooth finish that compliments the beverage.

This is what sparked the trade... the 3BEANS. We used to be able to get Sixpoint in Indiana, but not here in the Valley. So I traded with a guy... FROM Indiana! Actually met him here on the site. The beer is in a can and has a TON of coffee in the nose. The mouthfeel is weird, and has a certain metallic ting to it. Then the finish is nicely balanced for a beer that is 10% ABV. Glad we did the trade. Made the trade worth it, really! We still have 7 more beers to enjoy including 3 that are on the 1001 Bottles list.

BBB63 (6442) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Can and served in Duvel tulip: Pours a very deep brown with a long lasting head and spotty lace. The aroma is heavy dose of espresso, creme, chocolate, roast, touch of band-aid and some herbal hops. The taste is straight forward coffee with a touch of prune, walnut and chocolate. Some hop bitterness and a shocking amount of alcohol that stings the tongue a bit. Equally shocking is the fair amount of sweetness that remains in this beer. The mouth feel is ashy and boozy. I am a fan of coffee but there are moment this is too much. I do like the idea.

Tall, skinny can: Pours deep, cloudy brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is nutty-coffee, malt, wood. Taste is roasty, coffee-heavy.....nice bittering...creamy, malty. Very, very nice porter.

DocLock (8527) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Shitter can from Capone’s and Smith’s. Pours chestnut with 1-finger tan head. Nose is rich roasty malt, coffee, mild plastic. Tastes of heavy coffee grounds, cacao, mild blackberry, but mostly overpowering coffee. Gets downright acrid late.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Can. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has some strong roasting and coffee notes to it with almost a hint of alcohol in it. Taste is slightly bitter with some good roasting elements in there. Just a tad harsh, but in a way that makes you know you’re drinking a beer.

travita (4415) - Frisco, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Can. The look is dark, brown to black in color, foamy head dissipates quickly. The smell is coffee, roast, malt, burnt, ash, and black licorice. The taste is sweet, coffee, roast, burnt, acrid, and ok

On tap at Kickbacks and from a can thanks to Lukaduke, all during RBWG! Rich black pour with a thick tan head that sticks and laces a ton. Rich stout aroma with roast, a solid dose of coffee, and lingering chocolate and cream. Nice creamy flavor with roast, a touch of acidity, coffee, and some chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Tasty!
