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 its put alongside but to be honest we like it as the dessert itself!

bytemesis (7196) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 23, 2016
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 Travlrs bottle, but still a big time Nope.

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 Helms 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.

nearbeer (4993) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2015
650 ml. looks to have been bottled 06/30/2015. Opaque inky black with a touch of ruby and a thin disc of cream on top. Really nice looking brew. Nose is dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla cream. Taste is the same. Long finish sweeps away the richness with some spicy herb and a dose of charred wood that also brings a hint of smoke. Medium body has an awesome balance and a smooth low-medium carbonation.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Roasted and sweet malts, coffee, mild to moderate sweetness, and lingering roasted coffee sweetness. Pretty good.
