    I found temp to be key with this one. Cold = not very good. Room temp = amazing. A very good buy IMO....

    Tried it this weekend. Awesome beer. I loved that I could pick out both the chocolate and coffee, neither dominated the other. Excellent brew.

    How does this compare to FBS, if at all?

    More intense, but also a little harsh. FBS is smoother. 3Beans strikes me as a little thin.

    Got to try this at work today and thought it was delicious; it was at room temp/slightly below so maybe as loafinaround said, temperature could make a difference. I'll have to take a can home to refrigerate and see. Overall though, probably one of my favorite Sixpoint offerings aside from Resin.

    Many folks whose opinions I tend to trust were raving about this...bought a can...served with the slightest chill...and while I didn't drain pour it...I really didn't enjoy it even a little bit.

    Made the trip from Detroit to Toledo yesterday for some Nugget Nectar and picked up a 4-pack of this at Anderson's for I want to say $8.99. It's very enjoyable..don't know if it is better than FBS, but I like the "incognito" factor of the cans ;)

    I am on my second 4pack. For a while we had some limited availability, but our salesman told us this week we can order more. To get an example of what I think of 3Beans. On my left is Founders Breakfast Stout, so very enjoyable, love it every time. Now on my extreme right is TenFiddy.. Who can not get enough of those short dark oil cans! 3Beans fits somewhere in between. You get the Coffee and Chocolate. With my first sip, I found my coffee, and the aftertaste was chocolate. But then my second sip it was reversed. Either way, a super stout, or should I say Porter. Even at a higher price for a 4Pack, to me its worth every penny

    looks like I need to warm a can up... I've had 2 ice cold and it really wasn't anything special. Dark Horse Perkulator was better.

    My first beer I drank nearly fridge-cold, found it to be hoppy and light in body, but didn't get the darker notes coming through, and was frankly underwhelmed. Let my second time trying it warm up a bit, and at a warmer temperature the chocolate notes really start to sing and the balance of the beer comes out. Fell in love on my second can.

    I'm not too familiar with Baltic Porters, but I found that mine was surprisingly light and clear (still really dark, but not pitch-black like I was expecting). The body reflected this, but a little creamier. The nose and taste were both unique, judging by my past experiences with various iterations of dark beer. I definitely enjoyed it, and although I didn't know quite what to expect it definitely was not what I was expecting.

    Anyone else feel that way?
