COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Light brown, 3 finger coffee colored head. smells of espresso beans, rye malts, smoke and oak. Taste is very coffee like. lots of cold brewed coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans but very little malt to back it up. very thin and light mouthfeel, roast almost burnt coffee finish.

Earthy, beany, chocolately and well worth the wait! Great new comer to the market! It's what diesel should be! I do get a watery forward but beans after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 12oz red bull style can. Color is opaque dark brown... Like a brown ale. Minimal head disappears very quick. Smells of day old coffee pot, a bit of vanilla, and some resinous hops. Taste is cold coffee, more pronounced vanilla, and resin. There is a bit of alcohol hotness to it but otherwise well masked. Kind of a watery mouth feel. Different but tasty.

bigtaster (777) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Black beer, with off white head, lots of lacing. Nose is coco, coffee, and chocolate. Medium to heavy body, some spiciness, definite coffee, big kick up front with a smooth finish. Becomes more mouth watering as it warms. Good beer, unique, but complexity lacks.

Pours a dark brown with an off white almost brown eggshell colored head. Heavy notes of coffee with a hint of chocolate. Thereís lots of alcohol in the aroma. To a fault in my opinion. The palate is slightly thin. I wish this was a regular porter with the same coffee flavor and not the booziness.

12 ounce can, best before 10JUL2013 (as stamped on bottom of can). Served in a snifter, the beer pours very dark brown with about a half inch tan head that didnít stick around for long. There is a good amount of lacing. It smells like coffee, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, caramel and some nuts. It tastes like coffee, chocolate (milk and bittersweet), cream, nuts, roasted malt and some vanilla. Itís a little more bitter and roasty than sweet tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and has moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brew, although Iíd like it better if it was in 16 ounce cans instead. $8.99 a 4-pack.

Wow!!! Nicely poured dark brown with two inch khaki brown head and nice lacing down the glass. Smells of rich vanilla chocolate coffee and has a very similar taste but just a little to harsh on the bittering hops. Overall this is a pretty good beer I just wish it would leave less of a bitter lingering aftertaste.

can, pours dark brown with a nice khaki head and leaves very nice lacing in my snifter. Great coffee aroma, well its more a creamy cappuccino aroma, with chocolate and some oaky vanilla. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, some slight woody oak notes. a bit thin but a good brew overall.

Pours a rich brown color with a big sticky head... Aromas are roasty and full of malted chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and the flavors well balanced. Nice touches of sweetness and earthy bitterness on the finish. Hides te alcohol magically !

Tried on tap and can. Thought it was better on tap, it was a little ítinneyí in the can. Poured dark brown with a good head. Coffee and cocoa came through nicely - and that third bean added a roundness to the overall flavor profile. Also detected cinnamon and cardamom notes. A good beer with an interesting story (it was a Six Point takeover at the bar and we chatted with the Six Point guys for a while). Too bad Iíll probably never taste this again!
