I've been hoping to try SixPoint's 3 Beans Porter for some time now, and now that I've had it, I have to say it isn't as good as I'd hoped it would be. It's better! The appearance is dark, dark brown with light brown head that leaves thick sheets of lace that look like icing. The smell is like smelling a Russell Stover sampler box. That big rush of chocolate and other sweet flavors you get when you take the lid off of one of those boxes? That’s this. The flavor is just outstanding. Coffee and chocolate and root beer and a big malt, plus hops and some heat from the 10% ABV. This is probably going to become my favorite porter. I’ll buy the hell out of this whenever I can find it.
