Dark brown pour with a thick beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, caramel, and sugar cookies. Taste is bitter coffee, milk chocolate, some alcohol, and a little vanilla. A little chalky on the palate. Really good overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before July 10, 2013.
Appearance: The body appears black in the glass, but pours a clear chestnut that shows through the edges. The head is tall, taking up half of the glass after a moderate pour while forming a messy uneven tan head leaving lots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: The aroma is fantastic, itís reminiscent of a mocha espresso shot that leans dry with a touch of nuts in the aroma.
Taste: The intro isnít shy about the coffee at all. The espresso flavors are strong, even slightly astringent, making it hard to determine what else is here on the first sip. On the second sip the coffee is still dominate, but I can pick up slightly dark and bitter leaning cocoa with alcohol showing on the finish that lingers of coffee and dries out. This isnít balanced, but itís certainly enjoyable.
Palate: Medium to full bodied with some carbonation noted.
Overall: I like 3Beans, but the coffee is just too much here. I would like a bit more balance with a little more chocolate flavors and it couldnít hurt to mask the alcohol a bit better. This is a good beer, but $14 is high for a 4 pack. I have 3 more though that I think will settle down beautifully in a year or so.

Aroma of chewy molasses, vanilla wafers, and cappuccino. Pours deep brown with a medium brown head. Taste is very nice and bitter. Sharp dry coffee up front and a smooth vanilla cookie as it sits in the mouth. Nice malty fruits underneath. Very pleasant.

Thanks, Chris! Served in a cervoise. Heavy cocoa in the nose with some backing vanilla. Flavor goes toward coffee with nice vanilla in the background. Smooth and creamy.

Can. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very chocolatey and sweet, almost chocolate cookie or cake sweetness, a bit of dark cocoa and some espresso. Flavor has a lot of the chocolate of course, both milk and dark chocolate and the coffee comes in aggressively in the finish. Slight metallic note that lingers but generally good heavy chocolate coffee beer. Medium to medium full body a bit creamy.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet coffee, vanilla, espresso, lightly roasted malts, and lighter nutty notes. This one hit me the right way; really damn good.
