Pour dark brown with a brownish creamy head. The head wasn't very long lasting, perhaps less than a minute.
The aroma was typical of a chocolate or coffee porter/stout, but not as pronounced. There was a hint of citrus in the bouquet.
The first taste was light, semi-rich , mostly in chocolate, but as the beer went down, I could detect the coffee. This was also fairly carbonated for a porter/stout.
The second and third sips were the same, started with chocolate ending with coffee... Cant figure out where the third bean came into play.
This is a definite porter/stout for those that do not like the real heavy almost zero carbonated stouts (which I love)... Still I would have this one again.
I'd like to compare this porter with several well known Russian Imperial Stouts. More carbonated and lighter then the heavy stouts
The more sips I had, the more pronounced the chocolate was. Real smooth and lingering.
Snowy night here in the Northeast. Just finished with my snowblower and thought I would treat myself to some stouts. The 3Bean was the first I had. No question about more coffee this time around. Everything was almost perfect. Very soft and big in my mouth hitting every sense there. Aftertaste was just as it started, a nice soft chocolate but mucho cafe stout/porter. After I tasted this one, I went on to the next (which will be seen updated)

A - Jet black, nice 2 finger tan colored head that settles to a cap that stays and laces the glass on the way down.
S - Amazing! Coffee, chocolate, earthy burnt notes. Chocolate really pops in the nose more as it warms.
T - Balanced, of all the coffee beers I've had this one brings the most balance. Coffee and chocolate are both there, both imparting bitterness. Char notes work themselves in and a sweetness to malt body round it out. It finishes with some bitterness from the coffee and chocolate and some hop flavor that comes out in the finish.
M - Smooth, lighter in body than you'd expect, some sharp carbonation that is unexpected but works and a rather dry finish.
O - I'm going to miss this beer. Sixpoint, bring this back! This is an amazing coffee/chocolate porter that hides it's 10% punch. It's balanced, it's different and it's amazing.

3.03/5 rDev -24.6%

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Has a one finger tan head, with good retention and spotty lacing. The aroma has dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee.
The first thing I tasted is burnt coffee, which is mot pleasant. There is also cocoa and dark roasted malt. Not very complex or special.
Medium bodied with average carbonation, and a burnt, bitter coffee aftertaste. Nothing special here. Glad I only picked up a single can.
