On tap at Knuckleheads
Pitch black pour with a skinny one finger head. Was really impressed with the coffe aroma coming off this because I had no idea it had coffee in it. With that said coffee aroma was about average for a coffee porter. Good coffee bitterness and a pleasant toasty chocolate flavor made it an above average pint. Overall I would defiantly get another if I saw it out there but I doubt I would have more than one or two in a night.

On tap at New York Pizza. Pours a pitch black color with a 1/4 inch of light brown head. Good amount of lacing.The aroma is lots of dark coffee, chocolate, and earth. The taste is coffee at first followed up by chocolate covered espresso beans. Some roasted malts. Finishes with some dark chocolate and coffee. Rich. Moderate alcohol presence. Maybe a bit thin. I think I may like 3 Beans a bit more but it is very close. Overall, great beer I hope they end up canning.

A very generic beer. It has no punch, yet it delivers.

Pours a nice dark beer. Smells like coffee, chocolate. Taste like any other porter, a bit lacking in character. It was a bit thick in the mouth. Easy to drink though, could drink this all day. Light enough.

Had a pint at Barcade in Philly during the Sixpoint Tap Takeover. From notes.

A - Black pour with a film of off white head. Spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Lot's of coffee, coffee, grounds, roast.

T - Coffee and tons of roast with a bit of milk chocolate.

M - Good carbonation, medium body and a bitter coffee finish.

O/D - An intense coffee porter that worked fairly well. No complaints here, but nothing I would drink a lot of.
