COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beeruccino is a porter by malt recipe but designed to be a more than suitable replacement to a plain old after dinner cup of coffee. We use highly roasted malts in the mash then during the boil we add clean American hops and black pepper to match the complexities of locally roasted coffee we infuse it with. During fermentation we add almond wood chips which lend subtle vanilla notes to round it all out. While high in alcohol to aid in its aperitif intentions there is little to no noticeable alcohol “heat.” This beer pairs wonderfully with just about any dessert it’s put alongside but to be honest we like it as the dessert itself!

November 7th, 2014 - To round out our round of tasters, my drinking partner and I dive into the thick and unctuous Beeruccino. Beginning with a lovely and inviting coffee aroma, a few more sniffs reveals tiramisu in the scent. The flavor focuses more on the coffee notes, having dropped the tiramisu that I caught on the aroma. But nevertheless, this is "good" coffee. The flavors are akin to well-roasted beans, with lots of flavor coming from both the dark malts and the added coffee ingredients.

Hello there Helms, this hit pretty high for me: powerful coffee notes and smooth as hell. Maybe a little too rounded-- I like an offensive bite of acidity in a coffee porter. Overall, a great brew and I do believe my first from this brewery. 22oz bomber

22 oz bottle with a Jan. 2016 bottling date served in a Fat Cat glass. Pours dark brown with a weak head. Black and opaque in the glass. OK aroma that dominated by roasted grains. Flawed flavor with ample dark roasted grain and a moderate amount of coffee, but the coffee carries some old wet grind notes and there’s a hint of contamination. Some earthy hops (too much) and faint black pepper too. Good, smooth, full body with near medium carbonation.

On draft at the brewery. Dark brown pour, with a light tan head. Coffee, roast, notes of vanilla, slightly peppery, and malt. Ok coffee beer.

Bottle. Pours dark black, medium tan head, dissipates pretty quickly with some residual and lacing. Aroma is coffee, heavy roasted malts, molasses. Flavor is odd, light sweet with a sickly note to it, not pleasant. Coffee and lemon juice, molasses left in the sun, super burned malts soaked in water. Acrid and somewhat tart. Light sweet, light plus bitter. Medium body. Infection city? Mine was not a gusher like Travlr’s bottle, but still a big time Nope.

Pint poured at helms brewing company in San Diego. Pours a dark brown with a slight beige head. Smells like coffee. Tastes like coffee hops and vanilla. Really nice beer.

Massive aggressive gusher. Opaque cloudy brown color, massive beige head that continues to rise over the top of the glass. Aroma of cafe au lait and chocolate bars. Taste is sour chocolate, aggressive bubbly mouthfeel I got an evil bottle, apparently. Beautiful aroma, but undrinkable.

Did a full flight at Helm’s tasting room. This was their most bold beer of the day. Easy to explain. Lots of coffee. It was still light bodied to go down easy.
