3beans

2013 batch, from a 12 oz. can, served in a tulip glass
RateBeer: 96 / Beer Advocate: 91 / Untappd: 4 caps

LOOK

Pours dark brown with a light tan thin head.

SMELL

Roasty, lots of coffee notes. I don’t get much chocolate or hops.

FEEL

A little over carbonated. A light finish.

TASTE

A lot of roasty coffee flavors. A little chocolate in the finish.

OVERALL

My first thought was how this beer totally breaks that “Sixpoint flavor.” It doesn’t have that hop profile that most Sixpoint beers have. To be completely honest, from the can I really don’t get as much chocolate flavor or aroma that I would like. I did have a taster of 3Beans today on draft a got a lot more chocolate notes than I did from the can. Kyle and I have talked about this beer and how we feel like we had totally different experiences with this beer. His review is quite different from mine. Let us know in the comments what you think.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
