    3Beans was $13ish for 48oz of a pretty good baltic porter. Alaskan Baltic was $10 for 22oz. and I didn't enjoy it much. Worth is relative.

    Tongo, thanks for the useful input, I will drink the last one I have closer to room temp and give it another shot.
    ThirstyFace, thanks for informing me that my opinion is not very intelligent. I will try to have better taste in the future.

    Definitely- as long as you have another, that makes sense. Here's hoping you get more enjoyment out of it- cheers!

    I'll also repeat another thing I've posted about this beer: I really like those dark chocolate-covered espresso bean candies, and that's the very first thing that came to mind when I tasted 3 Beans- almost like the coffee is not processed at all. Plus (some) booze! And no grit in between your teeth!

    Where? Only saw it here in NYC for $14.99. In any case, it was okay but for that price I'd go elsewhere for mr stouts/porters. And I happen to like Sixpoint beers.

    I believe I paid $13 for mine, so $13 for 48oz of a 10% abv pretty damn delicious coffee porter? I've paid way more for way worse before. I think it is the best beer they put out.

    You know the book "Unsafe at Any Speed"?

    3beans is overpriced at any price. I honestly found it terrible. There are plenty of other options at similar and lower price points that are better.

    Price is high as compared to what it sells elsewhere. However, I doubt that once you try it you'll have any remorse what so ever, Sixpoint really did a great job on this. Keep it quite, but once I tried it, I'd have paid more for sure.

    About right, a little cheaper in New Jersey(by about a buck or two).

    I drank one tonight. Not very good cold. Not much flavor at all. Pretty good at room temp. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm glad I bought it.

    I think someone screwed up and priced it at the same price as their regular offerings. Either the store, or the distributor that sold it to them is taking a big loss on this one.

    10.99 at a store local to me in NJ.

    Also, better than FBS. IMO of course, but i blind tasted them last night and 3Beans won EASILY. much more coffee flavor and a nice chocolate as well. FBS has no Oatmeal.

    I dont find it expensive. Anyone want to recommend me a cheaper ~10% abv oak aged coffee/chocolate baltic porter? Especially ones with similar quality ingredients?

    Heady Topper's $13 for four 16 oz cans. That's my bench mark. Have a hard time paying the same price for fewer ounces, or paying more for the same ounces. When it costs more, and has a lower volume...I won't touch it. I have tried it, and it's most certainly not worth the cost, in my opinion.

    Considering the expensive ingredients used the price is understandable. The two places I've found it have had it for 12.99 and 13.99, and I enjoyed it enough to seek it out again.

    I don't think you're considering the cost to the brewer. It is significantly cheaper to brew an IPA (of any type) than a Oak Aged Baltic Porter using high quality coffee, cacao, and romano beans.

    IMHO Sixpoint is one of the more overpriced breweries out there. It's nice that they're pints but at the same time, I'm usually paying $3.50-$5 a can. 3Beans was a little disappointing in that it was 12oz.

    That's a pricing error. The case cost was almost twice what the regulars cost.

    $13 in vt, I liked it quite a bit and got a few 4 pks. For those looking for similar flavors in a thicker beer, try to find some Peak Mocha Oak aged Stout, that ones certainly not lacking in flavor especially for $6 a bomber.

    Fifteen bucks is a lot for a 4 pack of beer from a brewery that hasn't really made anything too impressive, imo.
