Pour from can..pretty good 1 finger head..aroma on this is delightful..like a cross of chocolate milk infused coffee drink...spiked with a shot of espresso and some French vanilla cream on the side..palate and mouthfeel are remarkably smooth...absolutely no trace of the 10 anywhere..which is quite shocking...extremely smooth..tasty..and obviously packs a punch even though it is cleverly disguised..quite impressed by this offering..very good all around...definitely worth picking up...

12 ounce can. Big carbonated pour. Creamy and milk chocolate. Coffee and some roast. High ABV is not present. Very smooth. Maybe their best beer.

I’m a sucker for any brew with coffee added. Sixpoint did not disappoint. Tall, thin can poured into a rounded pint glass. A bit lacking on the aroma. Subtle coffee & cacao notes. A bit lacking on the appearance, also. I figured that this would be a thick, opaque beer. The glass allows for some light to come through, a deep dark brown, nonetheless. Flavor is right on point. Deep, rich coffee and dark chocolate flavor. Nice creamy mouthfeel. perfectly balanced with bitterness on the finish. Very drinkable and dangerous at 10.0% (nicely hidden abv, by the way).

Woody coffee nose. Hazy brown, medium tan head, good lace. Medium body. Coffee and soil flavor, with very subtle plum notes. Woody finish.

12 oz. can purchased at @ Nikki’s Liquors, Providence, R.I. for $3.79. My Guinness pint shows soapy tan head that left spotty lace as I drank. The aroma is awesome!! Rich espresso beans, chocolate and caramel. The flavor has nice roasted malt, dark chocolate, deep roasted coffee beans. Some black coffee earthy bitterness toward the finish. The body feels light and that makes it dangerous since I can NOT taste the 10 %. Long lingering roasted notes and coffee flavors after the sip. Honestly, overall I think I maybe in love! Great coffee porter.

I will take a wild guess here and say that this is the first Baltic Porter I’ve enjoyed out of a can. Well it was packaged in a can, but I poured it into a glass, this time anyways. Smells of coffee and chocolate mostly with the coffee being the dominant aroma. Light earth, ash, light dark fruit and a touch of alcohol round out the nose. The flavor is sweet with caramel and burnt sugar , a hint of chocolate and a burro load of Juan Valdez. Light ethanol flavor and a touch of dark pitted fruit flavor add a hint of complexity. Medium to thick body with a creamy but coarse mouthfeel and a light level of carbonation. This is a nice porter if you like a coffee bomb.

Sharp taste of coffee grounds. Smooth chocolate undertones in the back. Definitely a strong hopping on this one too. Pretty intense and interesting.

Very dark brown pour, lots of head and lacing. Smell of chocolate and especially coffee -- lighter roasted coffee than you’ll usually smell in beer (kind of like Newman’s Own if you’ve ever had that). Bitter taste, fair amount of carbonation, alcohol is masked well.
