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.

a: Very dark amber, with a quickly forming head that is hard to control out of the glass, but of course this is a good thing.
4/5

s: It has a sickenly sweet green apple like smell, as well as a slightly solvently scent. Some fruityness is present as well
Not nearly as much coffee or chocolate as I would had expected
3/5

t: rich espresso, chocolate, coco dust, and heavy malty sweetness. Where it fails in aroma, it makes up for it in pure powerful taste.
The alcohol sweetness is also very present, and some solventy flavors are present but it is to be expected from a beer this big.
A great chocoalty, heavy, desert beer
4.5/5

m: very syrupy. Not too much so, it has some restraint to it, but still, its exactly as you might expect a dark beer of this size.
4/5

Overall: this is a interesting beer. I was not crazy for its smell, but that's because I'm more of a ale scented person, and the lagerish sweetness that this has just is NOT my thing. However, its taste really wins me over. It really is exactly as they promote it. Heavy chocolate. Heavy malt. heavy coffee. and a nice, heavy body
A great desert beer, but one that I would had been happier to pay 2-3 dollars less for
4.25/5

4.19/5  rDev +4%

A- pours a dark brown color with a creamy light-tan head with great retention, eventually leaving a thin layer on top and a few rings of lace

S- fresh roasted coffee beans and espresso foam, blueberry juice, lightly smoky malt with a touch of floral aroma at the end

T- fresh coffee bean flavor explodes up front with a sharp bitterness, bitter-sweet cacao provides nice chocolate flavors mid-palate, fruity blueberry juice mixes with toffee sweetness, eventually closing into a nice floral hop backbone. Coffee bitterness on the linger

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy-to-creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, with just a touch of alcohol on the finish. This is perhaps the most drinkable 10% I've had thus far, dangerously drinkable

O- a very good coffee-forward porter that packs as much flavor as a stout. Drinks nowhere near its high ABV and balances nicely with the coffee beans and cocao

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.
