BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States
sixpoint.com

Style: American Imperial Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Full blown dessert stout finishing at 12 plato. EXTREMEly thicc body on this one. Horchata Beans is the strongest, most full-bodied beer we’ve put out through our Small Batch program. The tiger nut addition represent the complex flavor of traditional Spanish Horchata, while the cinnamon brings the Mexican flavor into play. Once barrel-aged, the beer shows off waves of bourbon, coconut, cinnamon with a pure motor oil body.

Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Came in a tulip glass with about a quarter inch of head leaving behind scant lacing. The color is dark cola and the aroma is boozy. The taste was boozy too, a little too much for my tastes. But I definitely finished it.

L - 1/2 finger mocha head atop a jet black body.

S - cinnamon, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate.

T - starts out with lots of cinnamon and vanilla, then the barrel kicks in. Somewhat boozy bourbon presence, but not overbearing. Hazelnut, bittersweet chocolate, molasses, char, a hint of dark fruit. Slightly metallic finish. Moderate-low bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. Moderate booziness.

F - medium body with minimal carb.

O - I wish this had a heavier “nut” presence, but damn this is a tasty monster.
