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.

Can. Dark brown, medium large tan head. Aroma coffee, vanilla. Medium body. Some alcohol. Flavor is pretty sweet but acceptably so. As you would expect it’s predominantly coffee and chocolate, with some roasted malts and caramel. Interesting and good.

Theydon_Bois (8727) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Can on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I, 06/07/13, thanks to Ian for this share. Dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that dissipates to a film. Nose is roast malt, sweet sugars, vanilla, chocolate, coffee notes. Taste comprises bitter roast, cocoa, espresso, light booze, dark malt, touch of spice. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation , dry roasty finish. Decent.

glennmastrange (2258) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Can. Moderate to heavy toasted dark bread and mild coffee for the malt, light to moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with notes of vanilla, charcoal and alcohol giving it an overall scotch aroma. Head is small, frothy/creamy, light beige, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, watery with a lively carbonation, a moderately alcoholic and lightly dry finish. A pretty good beer, but as a Strong Porter it seemed a little bland to me.

dpjuart (1058) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Can courtesy of Nate. Pours dark brown/black with tan, frothy head, about 1 finger, lingering. Nose is lots of coffee, some mild sweet notes, brown sugar. Brown sugar and roasted barley dominate, with some coffee and mild astringency. odd, coffee oil after mixes with the astringency. Slight notes of hop brightness come forward at the end with a moderate bitter. not bad.

PorterPounder (5558) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - skinny little 12 oz can. Dark, dark brown leading to black with a thick khaki colored head that clings to the side of the glass. Aroma has hints of coffee, licorice, and creosote. Flavor is bold and strong with a strong alcohol bite. Hints of licorice, baked brown bread, unsweetened baker’s chocolate and a bit of booziness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice slickness to it that makes this very drinkable. Wondering why Sixpoint does not put the style of beer on the can.....

Beans! Beans everywhere! It’s very much in the palate. It comes as a surprise cause there’s not much in the nose. Great beer though. Roasted characters. Swap this one with your morning coffee....or don’t

Chocolate, coffee, and a little metallic funk in the aroma. Rich, sweet flavor with vanilla, coffee, and chocolate. Coffee bitterness, alcohol, and a little grassy hops in the finish. Very good.
