4.18/5 rDev +3.7%
12oz can into a Russian River Tulip
A- Pitch black with a 3 finger dark cream head. Dissipated to a small ring in less than a minute.
S- Dark and toasty malt notes with a little bit of chocolate. Did not get much coffee at first, but as it warms you find it.
T- Good dark malt flavor. Alot of roasted flavors jump right at you. Actually has a little hoppy bit to it but its masked by the chocolate and coffee. The taste I am thinking is chocolate might be something else, but it tastes alot like artificial chocolate powder that is a little bitter sweet. Might actually be just the coffee showing up differently for me.
M- Big and full. Fitting for the style and much what I expected.
O- I've had a couple of these and while I think it is a personal thing I am thrown off by what I feeling is a bittersweet chocolate taste in this beer. Something intrigues me though, as I keep coming back to try and figure it out. Always enjoy what I get from Sixpoint and will probably end up buying 4 more of these at some point.

Poured into a snifter
A: Dark brown with a half finger head that dissipates. Frothy lacing.
S: Coffee strong. I'm awake now.
T: Heavy coffee with light hops and chocolate undertones. A great breakfast/brunch drink.
M: Medium with medium carbonation.
O: For coffee beer fans, this one is a standout. Stout, robust and "wake up" yummy.

Enjoyed this on draft at Aunt Chilada's in Hamden, CT. Served in a snifter because of the high ABV. Appropriately named because you can actually taste all three beans. Very strong. Very tasty.
This was my first time finally trying a Six Point brew. Can't wait to try more varieties.

A: pours a dark brown with about 1 finger of khaki head shows a slight ruby red hue when held to the light good head retention and lacing
S: lots of coffee and chocolate on the nose very roasty also a hint of cream almost like a coffee milk no real hint of hop bitterness
T: bitter up front with coco and coffee slight hint of vanilla there is a hint of alcohol
M: full bodied a little sticky lingers for a good amount of time
O: cery good over all it would be tough to say that the the alcohol on the taste would go away with some aging however the coffee and coco flavor would desipate after a short time

3.9/5 rDev -3.2%
Smell is a good balance of coffee and dark chocolate. Not a huge aroma, this is pretty tame, but really nice. Not a lot of roast, but a little bitterness from coffee and cocoa.
Taste follows, really nice balance between the coffee and chocolate, coffee does not dominate. Not a "big beer" exactly, really suprisingly mellow and tame for a 10% beer. Very tasty.
Booze does not show at all, hard to believe this is 10%. Almost want to say the body is thin, but it doesn't feel thin so much as it just doesn't feel as thick and sweet as a 10% porter usually would.

4.51/5 rDev +11.9%
Appearance: Very dark brown in color with a light tan head rocky head as it thins out thick lacing is left behind.
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.
