Deep reddish brown body and two plus finger thick foamy head made this beer look nice in the pint glass. The can it came in was well designed as well. The smell that the beer emitted was a heavenly mix of chocolate, coffee, and hops. I didn't even need to bring the glass to my nose to smell this. The taste was out of this world, with a perfect balance between sweet chocolate, toffee, dark cherries, and figs; and bitter coffee, hops, and burnt toast flavors. There was hint of lactic sourness in the finish. Very creamy in the mouth at first with and astringent punch at the end. Freaking outstanding introduction to this brewery. (633 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Served from a 12oz slim can into a Newport Storm pint.

Appearance- Smokey/grey/blackish color with mocha head. Lot of lacing.

Smell- Tons of bitter coffee with some caramel and chocolate. Some nice vanilla oakieness. A little booze.

Taste- Chocolate and coffee! Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate. Extremely well balanced. Nice bitter hops at the end with a little booze.

Mouthfeel- Lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Phenomenal.

Overall- This is incredible! Might surpass Breakfast Stout in the realm of coffee beers. (528 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Beige head, moderate to low retention on a dark ruby, almost black body. Clear oily, sticky lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, cocoa puffy chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste closely follows the aromas. Medium mouthfeel, NO alcohol noted on aroma or tasting. Insanely drinkable considering the abv. Really, really a tasty beer, borderline genius. (400 characters)

4.77/5  rDev +19.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours very dark chestnut brown color with a massive 3 finger cascading foamy tan head that was full of bubbles and did not budge, fading extremely slowly, leaving very nice spotty foamy lacing and even some rings as it went down.

Smells of fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, caramel, charcoal, faint herbs and more coffee; a lot of coffee notes, which are really nice, and somehow a very complex and very simple aroma at the same time. To me, this could be the best smelling porter ever (or at least that I've encountered).

Tastes really rich, with fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, cocoa powder, bourbon or red wine like it was barrel aged, caramel, toasted grains, charcoal, light vanilla, faint herbs and more coffee and chocolate, like coffee beans and a chocolate bar melted in the glass. It’s complex, very smooth and extremely tasty, and much better than I thought it would be. I love coffee and expected it to be really good, but this was outstanding and almost shockingly better than expected.

Mouthfeel is watery smooth like an iced coffee, with a light body that still has a little chewy feel to it, nice balance, very light carbonation, and a slight boozy bitter finish that has an overall slick feel. The 10% ABV is pretty well hidden, except for a mild burn after some swallows, so this could a dangerous one to drink.

Overall it was excellent and I hope this is a regular production beer from SixPoint. A very high recommendation, I want to get some more of this ASAP. Not many people get excited about a Baltic Porter in general, but this is one Baltic Porter that may get the masses raving about it. (1,684 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

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. (860 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

a beautiful dark brown pour with a perfect 2 fingers of dark brown head which slowly dissipated leaving behind a great amount of lacing. the smell - HOLY CRAP! coffee lovers rejoice, this smells fucking amazing! chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, caramel, coffee, more coffee... i can't even contemplate tasting it, i just want to smell it all night long, but i guess it MUST be done...

a dark bitter roasted flavor up front, followed by a delicious mocha flavor, latte milky sweet coffee goodness. i can't believe how delicious this is. you can slightly taste that it's an alcoholic drink but it honestly just tastes like a toffee/caramel/coffee flavored drink. slight hazelnut overtones. did i mention this is delicious???

a medium to full body, moderate carbonation. thick and creamy, yet drinks so easy it's damn near dangerous.

...so resin WAS my favorite sixpoint beer but this just blew it out of the water. i have never tasted such a damn good coffee porter... make that coffee beer. so sweet yet so roasty. so damn dangerously easy to drink and delicious. (1,061 characters)

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.

02/08/13
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) (1,371 characters)

Sixpoint - 3Beans - 12fl oz can

Continuing on my journey through Sixpoint brews, this one was a logical next step.

Look - Pours dark and settles black with a hint of brown around the edges. Huge, soapy head, lacing from the Gods. Carbonation apparent when pouring, brew settles in waves into the glass.

Smell - Cocoa, mocha, and espresso. Malt is there as well.

Taste - Creamy chocolate with subtle coffee and malty overtones throughout. Supremely delicious.

Mouthfeel - Sits a bit on the sweeter side but not overbearing, a bit sticky even but again not a big detractor. Insanely drinkable, no way of knowing this is 10% until you've finished one.

Overall - This brew is simply amazing! I must have got a very fresh batch since the characteristics seemed to point to that. Each sip impressed me all over again throughout. (828 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a skinny tall boy can into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.

A: Darker brown color with light escaping from the edges. Normally aggressive pour leads to a full two finger head that's latte foam colored. Very good head retention and the lacing clings to the side like glue.

S: Full flavored coffee (not burnt), espresso, cocoa and some grain. Excellent nose.

T: Better on the tongue than on the nose. This tastes like a perfect iced mocha made with cocoa instead of chocolate. Lots of espresso, some vanilla and a touch of bready yeast.

M: Perfectly carbonated, sharp finish. Good mouthfeel.

O: A superb brew. I went into this not expecting a ton but hoping to really like it. I was supremely impressed. (720 characters)

I've had a few great Baltic Porters before, but this one is exceptionally interesting. It pours into a beautiful light head with perfect lace and a pretty much opaque blackness. The lace just keeps on coming too.

The aroma is complex - roasty, malty, coffee, all mixed together nicely. The taste is similar - a nearly sublime balance, and enough bitterness underneath it all to warrant all that extra stuff. The coffee fixes what's often wrong with this style by distracting from the strength of the hops and malt flavor. Ah, and I failed to mention that under all this it is a very alcoholic beverage and it makes no apologies for this.

As it warms the coffee aroma becomes more pronounced. The chocolate taste, by the way, is nicely balanced way below most of the rest of the flavors. This may be the best coffee flavored brew I have ever had. Hurray for Sixpoint! (869 characters)

On tap at When Pigs Fly. In a snifter the beer was a very dark brown color with a medium-sized cafe au lait head. There were sheets of lace.

Primarily coffee aroma, but also some chocolate.

Strong coffee/espresso taste. Dark chocolate. They complimented each other really well.

Great beer with real depth. The chocolate kept the coffee from being too bitter. Another one of those easy-drinking beers that you need to be careful of, given it's high ABV. (455 characters)

A-bslsck with a the tan head

S-smells like fresh roasted coffee. There is a hint of chocolate but I am impressed at how fresh it smells.

T-comes in similar to the taste of coffee over the smell of coffee, as we all know coffee tastes different (worse) than it smells. It's still an awesome flavor with just a touch of cocoa to it. It sure is tasty overall, tastes closer to real coffee than most beers I've had.

M-medium crisp carbonation with a dry finish

O-this is just a great beer. Baltic porter? Maybe not, tastes more like a strong English stout. There is hardly any abv in the taste, it's so smooth. I bought this not understanding what it was, thinking maybe it was an average brown ale, but I was completely surprised and satisfied with this beer. I suggest your try this if you see this. (803 characters)

Poured into a Sam Adams glass, developed a dense tan head which lasted through the drink and laced greatly. Appearance was a ruby / brown with an aroma of malt, grass and toffee. Taste was intense with strong notes of chocolate, coffee and caramel with some spice and malt on the back. Mouthfeel was full and creamy with a dry, malt aftertaste. (344 characters)

Alright, 3Beans by Sixpoint has been a much-touted beer, so when I saw it at a local liquor store, I had to buy it. It comes in sleek, cool-looking 12 oz. cans, which Sixpoint calls "nano kegs" (not sure if I'm on board with the slightly gimmicky name, but whatever). Poured into my Beer Geek Nation tulip glass.

Appearance (4/5): Almost completely black, extremely dark brown, with a khaki head of foam that towers three-plus finger above the body of the beer.

Smell (4.5/5): Serious coffee/espresso notes, bittersweet dark chocolate, roasty, complex and pungent. Very nice. As it warms up, I get more milk chocolate character in the nose.

Taste (4.5/5): Right off the bat, you're hit with major coffee bitterness, some bittersweet dark chocolate follows the nose, and no alcohol heat at all. Very roasty and dry like you'd expect a porter to be. There's a lingering chocolatey taste that sticks around for a long time. Really keeps that palate working.

Mouthfeel (5/5): 3Beans packs an incredible mouthfeel. It's creamy and thick from the beginning, and it's almost chewy at the end. It has finish for days; it's making me salivate, there's so much residual flavor and intense bitterness. Appropriately low carbonation level works well with the creaminess.

Overall (4.5/5): Sixpoint 3Beans is an exceptional beer. This brew isn't special just because it uses unusual ingredients; it's a masterwork of intense flavor and carefully considered implementation of ingredients. I must emphasize, the mouthfeel is something to behold..this stuff goes down like a chocolate shake. This is the best beer of Sixpoint's that I've had. Wonderful. (1,646 characters)

I CANnot CANvey how excited I was to see this in the (Max's on Broadway in BAL) cooler for CANsumption @Chez Woody!

From the CAN: "Beer is culture"; "Ale brewed with natural flavors and with coffee added"; "Take them 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."

This beer is apparently biblical in scope, being as the quote is from Ezekiel 4:9-11. In keeping with that theme, please note that what follows is not a psychotic breakdown, but instead, a cleansing moment of extreme clarity. I must now make my witness. (Sure thing, Mr. C.!)

When they put a 10% ABV beer into a SlimLine CAN, I feel as though I am drinking diet pop and slug it down accordingly. Of course, I routinely operate heavy machinery while using prescription medication, so YMMV.

The Crack revealed another brimful CAN and an inverted Glug was deemed to be in order. Proceeding in a manner completely counter-indicated by the owner's manual, I soon had what resembled an ice cream Sunday in my glass. Two dense, unmoving fingers of deep-tan head sat atop a bed of deep, dark liquid. More precisely, a deep, dark-brown liquid that, stingily, would not allow any light to penetrate its depths. The nose smelled like the moment this afternoon that we walked past a a coffee roaster's shop this afternoon in Fell's Point. You have to be a coffee drinker to appreciate the Pavlov's dog-like response that the smell of coffee elicits in a coffee drinker and ever since BMCS (SW) Gerard Wargo got me drinking black coffee in the Deck Department office of the USS Fulton (AS-11) in 1984, I have been hooked. Now, as the head fell, I began to foam at the mouth like a rabid dog. Mouthfeel was thick and full, like a mouthful of pudding and the roastiness of the coffee hit first, followed by a chocolatiness and finally, a smooth vanilla flavor. The finish lingered with a coffee roastiness along with a bitterness of dark chocolate. This would have been great to share with The Old Lady on Valentine's Day, but I am keeping this one to myself. (2,163 characters)

Serving Type - Can

Appearancve - Dark brown/tan with a monster 4+ inch head, tons of thick sticky lacing. Looks amazing in a glass.

Smell - Dark roasted malts, some coffee, mollasses, chocolate. A little smoke, vanilla and dark fruits. Classic bitter/sour porter armoa

Taste - Really big coffee bean and woody/smoked malt flavor starts off. Has the classic baltic porter flavor for sure, bold malty and alcohol infused. Plenty of alcohol burn in each sip. Theres a nice backbone of sugar and chocolate with a little vanilla that mellows out the bitterness.

Mouthfeel - The coffee and malts nail the tounge and coat it big time. The alcohol comes in and adds warmth. The palate gets alot of malts, coffee and the addition of chocolate and vanilla. The finish is sweet, coffee influenced and alcohol warm.

Overall - This is really good. Reminds me alot of founders breakfast stout but this is something bigger, bolder, thicker and has a real coffee flavor. Very smooth and drinkible, maybe the only flaw would be the alcohol warm. This totally should be made annually. Im starting to learn that when you see a skinny 12 oz can from sixppoint brewing, get excited. (1,167 characters)

appearance: Black as night on the pour but when held up to the light you can see a deep red. Very nice.

Smell: smells like burnt coffee, but not in an awesome way. Not bad, but not my favorite. Something a little funky as well, almost a little bit sour.

Taste: Wow. Far different from the smell. Beautiful, smooth, sweet coffee notes with a slight bitterness at the back that resembles black coffee more than beer. This is just awesome.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy in body with better carbonation than I expected.

Overall: I traded for this and was by FAR the most I've spent on a beer (after shipping costs about $9 for 12oz), and it was completely worth it. This is just fantastic. (683 characters)

12oz. can poured into a Flying Dog goblet (best before 7/10/13)

A: Dark, almost pitch black with excellent lacing. The head diminishes rapidly though.

S: Complex with a lot of notes. Espresso, just brewed black coffee, freshly ground coffee beans, malted barley, sweet dark chocolate. The cacao and coffee really come through and mix quite well.

T: Excellent blend of flavors that is a complex combination. It really tastes like it smells. Lots of coffee and chocolate, with a nice hint of malty sweetness. I really don't get any hops. You really have to be paying attention to even notice the bit of pine resin in there, because it is similar to the coffee and cocoa flavors here. Not a bad thing in this case. I didn't really get any romano beans, but that may only come through in the rich, full earthy body that it has, which probably is a bit antagonistic with the hops.

M: Nice even carbonation that lends a good bit of coarseness. Quite subtle and nice, which goes well with the flavors here. Overall, quite smooth though.

O: Finally, a Sixpoint that I really like. This is great. Right in line with the recent Dayman and Espresso RIS. I loved the combination and concept here, probably because it was perfectly executed. Now this is how you do chocolate and coffee, in a beer. I haven't had many Baltic Porters, but this one was top notch. (1,352 characters)

Aroma: Espresso, cocoa, smokiness, char, almost burnt hops, very dark roasted malts.

Taste: Chocolate malts, espresso, notes of vanilla and bourbon. Very dark roasted hops, char. Very smooth mouthfeel much like melted dark chocolate.

Notes: The alcohol blends in very well and is rather drinkable. A remarkable beer. Cheers. (442 characters)

12oz thin can. Best before 7/10/13 (surely a serious overstatement, Sixpoint)

Tasted side-by-side with Sierra Nevada's Narwhal. Perhaps an attempt to compare an imperial stout to a Baltic porter.

A: The lighter of the two, some light penetrates the tulip, revealing a dark brown hue topped off with a off-white crown that leaves some good lacing.

S: Serious toasty coffee aromas courtesy of legendary roaster Stumptown.

T: Sweet chocolate notes on the tongue, follow by the coffee. Great balance between the two.

M: Perfectly carbonated, this porter coats the palate with a nice, dry coffee feel. It is very smooth. Could it be the use of the Romano beans (the 3rd bean)?

O: A great porter that would have survived any trip across the Baltic Sea, and one that would have pleasantly surprised the recipients whether in Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia et. al.

As much as I liked it, I think I'm still partial to the Imperial/Double Stout style a la Narwhal. (967 characters)

This beer is simply great. The Romano beans gave the beer a wonderful texture to allow the coffee and cacao beans to meld and mutate into something that wasn’t your typical coffee stout/porter. 3Beans poured a deep brown almost black with a substantial khaki head. The aroma was a perfect buttery chocolate with a hint of coffee to round it out. Let this brew warm because it holds a tang when it’s too cold, but releases into a roasted dark chocolate coffee wonderland when it warms. (488 characters)

Poured from a can into a snifter, the beer appears thin on the pour, with a chestnut highlighted dark brown coloring and a clingy, frothy, off-white head that starts around an inch and slowly settles into a filmy coating. Aromas of creamy, smooth, blended and balanced vanilla and chocolate, with an undertone of bitterness from both chocolate and coffee. Very well blended and complimentary aromas as you consume. Flavors of rich, dark roasted coffee and bitter cocoa nibs right off the bat. Wow...this is damn tasty! Creamy backbone of vanilla and oak support the rich and bitter forefront attack on your tastebuds, and there is a strong, solid, boozey tail-end flavor that bleeds into the aftertaste. Some earthy and woody highlights help to add depth to the overall character of the beer. Creamy and slightly boozey aftertaste, with a lingering mocha charateristic. The lighter body lends itself to a clean, slightly dry finish. Great beer. Well crafted and very well balanced. Bravo! (988 characters)

The beer comes in a dark brown to black color with a light khaki head.

The aroma has an earthy coffee, cocoa, lots of roasted malt character.

In the front, there is a rush of black coffee. Then the beer moves onto this interesting cacao nib quality. It’s bitter, but pure of chocolate essence with hints of dried dark fruit. The middle has a touch of alcohol to lift up the beer. With a touch of vanilla and lots of wood and oak drying on the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium plus.

Reminds me slightly of Victory at Sea, but not as full in flavor and luscious. Still a fantastic coffee brew, even with over a year on it. (626 characters)

One of my favorite styles.

Poured in a pint glass, the beer is a deep chocolate with a three finger head.

Intense lemon-chocolate aroma. Some cocoa.

The mouth feel is nicely carbonated for the style.

The taste is intense lemon-chocolate, coffee aftertaste, mild bitterness.
The only drawback to the beer is that the intense flavor dissipates with warming.

Overall, a solid porter especially suited for cold winter nights. (427 characters)

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a very dark maroonish-red, that verged on black, but not quite. A bit of translucency was evident. Tons of bubbles rising from the bottom, to a nice solid 2 finger thick head. Head was rich and thick, with a fair it of side cling. Aroma was a slightly sweet, chocolate smell, with a very small hint of acidic in the backend. Taste had both coffee and chocolate, without either overpowering the other or being the main focal point. The coffee notes kicked in first, with just a tab of bitterness, but then mellowed out and left a nice sweet cocoa flavor on the tongue. Coated the mouth extremely well, not overly bubbly with a bit of chew. Overall a very solid beer. Perhaps a bit expensive ($3.75 for the single can) but a very solid beer, right up my alley. (804 characters)
