12 ounce can - $3.34 at Barrel and Barley in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours an opaque, dark brown body with a tall, growing, sandy-tan head.

Smell: Slight alcohol with some foretelling astringent, roasted notes of bread, nuts, and coffee that have felt the unforgiving flames just a bit too long.

Taste: Coffee, chocolate powder, and some roasted nuts and burnt toast. Medium-plus sweetness. A little raisin. Growing spicy, earthy, woodsy hop quality as the bitterness builds on the tongue pushed a bit further by the sharpness of the alcohol (a bit boozey). Pulling up a thin vegetal tone as I'm hoping, yearning for some semblance, some smoother components. Drying, alcoholic, moderately astringent finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Just a bit velvety.

Overall: Personally, it felt mish-mashed and muddled with some noted coarseness.

3Beans is a dark brown (SRM 26-27) beer with fine carbonation and a long-lasting, creamy, khaki head that deposits a dense coating of lace on a Blue Point snifter.

The aroma of roasted malt is strong with this beer, while light chocolate and coffee fill in around the edges. Fresh whole wheat bread and vanilla are presented as it warms. Late in the warming, astringency is released.

Bitter roasted malt quickly gives way to resin bitterness and coffee grinds. There is no sweetness or fruit. A long, moderately bitter finish contains flavors of coffee and malt.

A cottony texture and full body is punctuated by soft carbonation while well-controlled alcohol helps cleanse the residual stickiness.

This is a relaxing beer that develops with warmth while unwinding in the early evening.
