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 !

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(12oz can) pours a very deep espresso brown, huge thick creamy head that lasts a good while and has excellent lacing. Nose of oats, fresh coffee and cream, rich like coffee ice cream, chocolate. Taste of cocoa, sweet coffee, wheat or oats (some smooth grain I can’t identify through the delicious coffee), lightly roasty, bit acidic but also smooth and creamy. Gonna go on record and say this is one of the better coffee beers I’ve had in recent memory.

Tried on tap and can. Thought it was better on tap, it was a little ’tinney’ 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 I’ll probably never taste this again!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Mari’s. Pours brown with red around the edges. There is a large light brown head, plenty of lacing. The aroma has a lot of chocolate, some coffee, roasty notes. The taste has a lot of dark, bitter chocolate, burnt coffee grinds, and a really rough finish. For a 10% beer, the alcohol presence is not surprising; however, the flavor of this beer is not strong enough to support it / balance it. I don’t get the hype, at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. I sort of hate how Sixpoint beers labels fail to communicate the style of beer. Moving on...Thick unfiltered brown body, lacy off-white head. Sweet brown chocolate, caramel, coffee aroma. Sort of like a massive brown ale as much as a Baltic Porter, lots of sweet sugary specialty malts, but displays a nice balance too, with some mild spicy balancing hops somewhere in there. Sweet, syrupy finish. The sweetness is overwhelming after a point, A great dessert beer.

Aroma: bitter and sweet chocolate notes, espresso, some roast, slight sweetness.
Appearance: deep brown, good clarity, big mousse of a khaki head, excellent retention and lots of lacing.
Flavor: lots of chocolate and coffee, some roast and roasty bitterness, toffee, some astringent bitterness in the finish, smores, medium bitterness.
Palate: medium to medium/full body, medium carbonation, smooth and silky.
Overall: lots of great coffee and chocolate notes, a touch rough in the finish, but quite nice overall.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a dark brown with a pretty decent tan head. Aromas are of light cocoa and coffee with dark fruit. I should say that the aromas are really washed out. Don’t know if it is me or the beer, but I’m pulling at straws on a decent description of something so faint. Flavor, on the other hand, is not subtle. A nice blast of chocolate and coffee with a thick texture and a little creaminess on the tail end make this a winner on the first sip. Tastes like a nice mocha or cappuccino. Yum!

Can. Pours a dark brown with one finger of beige head. Strong coffee presence, with some dark chocolate and roasted malts. Good coffee flavor without being too bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Dutch’s. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized creamy khaki head that leaves some spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, some sweeter milk chocolate, coffee with some dry earthy notes as well. The flavor has a nice roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee blend. Some black coffee earthy bitterness to the finish. Medium plus bodied smooth and on the dry side. Not much sign of the 10%. One of the best I’ve had from Sixpoint.
