Sixpoint “3 Beans”

3 Beans     One thing I am really loving in the craft beer scene is all the canning going on lately. It seems like everyday I am hearing of more breweries moving toward cans. It’s about time good beer reclaimed the can! I (and a myriad of others) have made the argument for craft beer in cans for years now. One east coast brewery not only does this exclusively, but does it their way with no apologies. I have reviewed beers from them in the past, and once again I am super impressed with their newest offering in a slim 12oz energy drink type can.
     Sixpoint Brewery3 Beans” Oak Aged Baltic Porter (although you will not find a style claim on any of their cans). Made from Coffee Beans, Cacao Beans, and Romano Beans, this beer is a collaboration effort between 3 very craft NY establishments, Mast Brothers Chocolate, Stumptown Coffee and Sixpoint. For more behind the scenes information on this collaboration check out this awesome video. 3 Beans pours a luscious dark brown, with a big and fluffy tan head. The aroma is bold with robust roast coffee, chocolate, smoke and toast. It tastes just as delicious as it smells. The flavors of strong coffee, bitter dark chocolate, , vanilla and brown sugar is almost like chocolate covered espresso beans. The mouthfeel is medium to full and creamy, with a good amount of carbonation. It finishes perfectly bold and sweet with almost no detection of the 10% abv. This canned brew will have coffee and chocolate beer lovers fully satisfied! Here’s to Good Beers!
