    This might be the best they make now (IMO). They are between $10-$12 a four pack here.

    $18.95/4 pack at Nathaniel's in Rochester, NY. For some reason the distributor up here must be charging an arm and a leg for it compared with elsewhere?!

    I was thinking the same thing Bob. Or it's an error on TJ's end

    It's definitely more expensive than every Sixpoint that's come before. I've seen it average around $14-15 in NJ

    They served this beer from the can at the Jupiter Craft Beer fest last Saturday, so their might be some hope that we'll see some down here.

    Cheers

    Was $14 for a 4pak at the WF on 57th in New York. Not sure how I like this one yet, major alcohol smell and taste, though inwas forced to rush my first and only can. Will let the next one warm a bit more.

    I talked to the rep on Twitter. He said FL will be getting 3Beans this week/next week. The other cans will arrive soon thereafter.

    To me it was pretty good but unmemorable. I've had many other coffee and chocolate beers I liked better.

    Mine went down the drain this evening - so glad I only purchases one 4-Pack...
    I couldn't have been more disappointed by this release - Six Point, what are you thinking with this beer?

    Agreed.

    So many better coffee offerings out there. And many, many better bang for the buck offerings.

    Can't remember the cost but the taste is very memorable, just passed FBS in my book

    Had it on tap and in cans. What a fantastic beer. It's anywhere from $13-$15 for a 4 pack in the NYC/NJ area.

    They fixed it. Major pricing flaw with the distributor. Now it's 13.25 which is more reasonable. Nathaniel's will credit you the difference if you bought one yesterday at the higher price. Not sure if all the other shops will be as awesome about it. I am pretty stoked to try this one.

    Thanks for your note chefduff2! I'll have to see what BOTW does - I purchased it there before Nathaniel's got their order. Nathaniel's always does a great job with excellent pricing and service.

    Wanted to say something but couldn't think of anything that didn't sound dickish. Suffice to say I am surprised anyone who would purchase a coffee beer wouldnt like this one. oh well

    Palates gonna palate

    Heads up! Long story short, some distributors were accidentally invoiced too much for this beer and the error was just caught. Retailers will be refunded the difference, and soon you should see a drop in price. Give it a few days to shake out.

    Maybe what I got was injected or something - I will provide you the three remaining cans and if you think they are the example of a great beer, you should trade in your Craft Beer Card forever!

    The beer poors identical to Surly's Moe's or Cocao Bender and I was hopefully until that first sip. After that, the remaining beer went down the drain! So if you want the cans - let me know and they are your's...

    You'll lose a lot of the coffee. If you think it has too much coffee age away. If you like the way the coffee is now, you should drink it now. Aging a can should be fine at least for a year.

    $14.99 for four pack in ny..... so i bought a 64oz. growler for $19.99 instead... why not...............

    Hanzo Feb 27, 2012 Virginia

    It's a better deal to be sure, but I don't like the limitation of a growler, I mean we are talking 64oz of a 10%abv beer. If I were splitting it I'd go that route for sure.
