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!

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 canít 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 Iíve had in recent memory.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Mariís. 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 donít 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.

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. Donít know if it is me or the beer, but Iím 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!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Dutchís. 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 Iíve had from Sixpoint.

Dark with a creamy, dark head. Aroma is like a fresh cup of coffee. Roasted malts, chocolate, light earth tones, too. Medium to full body. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, some dark fruits, tobacco. Very good if you like the coffee beers.
