Poured from a 12 ounce skinny can. Pours a translucent brown with a thin, greyish head. Aroma is sweet and creamy chocolate and coffee. Taste is a roasty bitter coffee with a surprising wheaty breadiness going on in anthem finish. Pretty nice beer all around. ganache (6003) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Can. Nose of straight coffee with some roast and sweetness. Pours deep dark brown with a touch of red around the edges and a creamy, full rocky tan head. A little lace, legs. Taste is sweet as if artificially intensified, roasty with light bitterness and refined and gentle warming booze spreading outward from the finish into the aftertaste. Coffee is still an accurate descriptor, but more like coffee with a good deal of creamer added. Fullish body, smooth with a gentle undertow. Chocolate is a little thin but it’s there and has a mild plummy aspect (the overall beer wouldn’t be described as fruity). Have read elsewhere about the Romano beans, but I can’t taste them here. A good beer unworthy of reduction to "experiment", but really just an avg-above avg coffee stout. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2013
From the 12oz can. To quote my wife "mmmmm, yummy!" Pouts a reddish black with a thick off white head. Aroma is big with coffee and chocolate. Taste is much the same with a medium body and roasted malt notes. Quite tasty.

Can thanks to Dean! Pours a clear deep amber brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of sweet chocolate and coffee with a bit of dark grains and roasted malts. Flavor starts with roasted malts and coffee with a bit of sweet chocolate coming out in the finish.

This was opened sometime during the tasting with other big beers. Standing on its own it would make a good night. On a night like this was below average yet a nice change of pace. It’s strange to think of a 10% ABV beer that way. Buy a four pack if you can and check out a solid release.
Aroma / Appearance - The reddish brown base pours a little lightly for a 10% beer. The head is not long lasting even with some agitation. Chocolate and coffee are at the fore of a bittersweet malty experience.
Flavor / Palate - Sweet iced coffee, chocolate, and then a dry bittersweet finish are the hallmark of a solid beer. It doesn’t stand out but it is not timid either. The hint of hops that pop up give it a nice depth. I look forward to a few more Sixpoint cans in the near future.
Aroma: coffee, roasty. Very strong. Dark black. Strong coffee flavor with a really clean and mild finish. Nice beer. Foxbush (2071) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Draft This was enjoyed at Mekong. This is one of the best porters I have had recently. The Mekong serves in a 12 oz sniffer. The porter poured a near clear dark reddish brown color. The head was a frothy light brown with good lacing. The nose had roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. The medium body porter had soft carbonation. The smooth texture was most enjoyable and you hoped the glass would never empty. This is a complex porter that has a smooth finish that compliments the beverage.

This is what sparked the trade... the 3BEANS. We used to be able to get Sixpoint in Indiana, but not here in the Valley. So I traded with a guy... FROM Indiana! Actually met him here on the site. The beer is in a can and has a TON of coffee in the nose. The mouthfeel is weird, and has a certain metallic ting to it. Then the finish is nicely balanced for a beer that is 10% ABV. Glad we did the trade. Made the trade worth it, really! We still have 7 more beers to enjoy including 3 that are on the 1001 Bottles list. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Can and served in Duvel tulip: Pours a very deep brown with a long lasting head and spotty lace. The aroma is heavy dose of espresso, creme, chocolate, roast, touch of band-aid and some herbal hops. The taste is straight forward coffee with a touch of prune, walnut and chocolate. Some hop bitterness and a shocking amount of alcohol that stings the tongue a bit. Equally shocking is the fair amount of sweetness that remains in this beer. The mouth feel is ashy and boozy. I am a fan of coffee but there are moment this is too much. I do like the idea.
