(Served in a dimple mug)
A- The dense brown body glows a garnet glow with a thick creamy tan head pits with bubbles.

S- The rick blend of chocolate malt and some cold pressed coffee has some toasted malt support with caramel qualities growing as it opens. There is a chocolate nougat flavor that finishes as it warms.

T- The rich chocolate malt blends with a nice breakfast roast coffee and finishes with a black roasted malt. There is an alcohol taste with some hop bitterness and a coffee roast bitter hint to it.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a spicy alcohol prick in the finish.

O- Nice rich aroma with great chocolate malt and coffee and that follows through for the most part in the taste. Goes down smooth and the alcohol is a bit hidden but has nice alcohol heat as it opens.

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.

A - Pours a deep dark brown with nearly a finger of light mocha colored head, decent retention and lacing.

S - Lots of sweet vanilla beans, roasty coffee aromas and sweet chocolate aromas. Are those the 3 beans? "Blind reviewing" to an extent.

T - A great combination of roasty coffee notes and sweet chocolate up front, some light vanilla/hazelnut type flavors come through. Finish and aftertaste is bitterness, mostly roasty bitterness but the aftertaste is slightly reminiscent of hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied, pretty easy drinking, fairly well carbonated for the style (slightly on the light end). At 10% this is very drinkable and a real sleeper. watch out!

O - Nothing too outrageous but a fine go-to Baltic. Fun to drink, strong but hidden and good flavor.
