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.

Pours dark brown, almost black with small off white head. Notes were strong roasted coffee, spicy wood, pepper, cocoa dust, and more coffee grind or beans. Drinks pretty good for 10 percent. If you like coffee brews, you should check this guy out.

Great brew. Pours deep brown with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is full of sweet chocolate. Medium bodied and smooth. Finishes coffee with a slight alcohol bite.

12 oz can - pours opaque brown with a big, full, fluffy creamy white-tan head. Big aromas of espresso, roasted malts and nuts, sweet coffee and cocoa. Fragrant and delicious. Taste is roasted coffee at the end, sweet chocolate with a bitter finish, with dried dark fruit in the middle. Blind, one might mistake this for an iced espresso. Lighter bodied and delicious. Not heavy and no burn. Yes!

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($3.60): Pours near black with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, sweet, semi-dark chocolate. and of course freshly brewed coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate and coffee grounds. This is on the sweeter side of things, but manageable so. Aftertaste is mild but definitely pleasant. Body is perfect. I regret not getting the whole four pack because they pulled this off proper. Session Baltic Porter perhaps?

12oz slim can from a new store, Spirits Beachwood/Bayville. Poured a good looking super dark brown/black body with an average sized medium density foamy beige head. Aroma of bitter coffee, sweet chocolate and harsh vanilla notes, burnt toast and some harsh citrus rind. Medium to fuller bodied with rather strong carbonation and a harsh bitter finish with a touch of heat. Flavor is similar to the aroma with harsh bitter coffee dominating along with some dark toast, vanilla and cold espresso beans, old burnt toast, fresh citrus rinds, some veggies in the mix as well. Interesting but the more I drink this the less I like it.

A tad thin. Very bitter coffee. Not much smoke which is normal for a Baltic. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Can. Poured a clear dark reddish brown color with an average light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roast coffee, chocolate malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet chocolate coffee flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A smooth complex brew.

Pours a deep, dark brown color with a very large tan head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate. The two meld very well and make the beer smell absolutely delicious. The flavor is very similar. There is a ton of coffee notes, as well as some milk chocolate and lightly bitter roasted malt. There is also a nice cream character to the flavor which is great. Medium to thick mouthfeel and soft, medium carbonation. Great. So glad to have Sixpoint in Texas.

Itís no secret that Sixpoint 3 Beans is a beer made with chocolate and coffee. But if youíre expecting a mocha stout you can forget it. This is a Baltic Porter, an oft-overlooked style by American craft breweries, which is ironic because itís so unique. It has the chocolate and coffee flavors you might expect in those big imperial flavored stouts, but it doesnít drink like those beers. Its uniqueness is what makes it so special.

I poured a 12oz can into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Opaque black or extremely dark brown color. Forms a large, ivory, frothy head which retains and laces beautifully.

Smell: Iced coffee without the sugar, a hint of chocolate candy bar and some subtle alcohol notes.

Taste: Since Sixpoint 3 Beans is brewed with chocolate and cocoa beans (and Romano beans) I was prepared for a mocha stout. Lest we forget, chocolate is made with cocoa and vanilla beans, but this beer only has the former, not the latter, so itís emphasis is more on spice and bitterness than sugary sweetness. The net result is a tasty, flavorful, and interesting beer in many ways.

The palate begins rather cool and calm, with an almost milk stout-like mild sweetness and general dairy taste. Through the middle comes a fair amount of bitterness and dryness - likely a combination of the cocoa bean spice and the hops. The third act is a crescendo of iced coffee flavor but without the sugary sweetness nor the raw, cloying bitterness of robust coffee. The ending is the classic taste of strong alcohol (which is an ironic way to describe it since alcohol doesnít really have a flavor per se, except of alcohol). Overall, itís a fun palate and a well balanced one.

Drinkability: Though Sixpoint 3 Beans is a pretty big beer at 10% ABV, itís remarkable just how drinker-friendly it is. The mouthfeel is neither thick nor sticky, but tame and soft with a creamy texture. Though there is alcohol warmth, itís not distracting at all, and it pairs quite well with the coffee flavor and aftertaste. It goes down extremely smooth and does not hit your system like a brick through glass. Itís tempting to drink multiple servings back-to-back, but I wouldnít recommend it with this well-hidden potency.
