Sixpoint 5 Beans
Sixpoint 5 Beans is a Baltic Porter brewed with… well five different beans. Cacao, vanilla, coffee, romano and black cardamom are all used to create this 10% ABV beer designed to emulate a Turkish Coffee. Can provided for review.
The beer pours with a good looking opaque black color that has decent tan head. A fantastic aroma blend of strong coffee, chocolate, cardamom and other spices like cinnamon. The taste starts with a delicious coffee with cream flavor than I will assume is a combination of the coffee and vanilla beans. A good amount of chocolate and dark fruit notes of figs and dates follows the initial flavor. The finish brings a nice amount of the spice and a little bit of alcohol heat. At 10% you kind of expect a bigger, and more chewy mouth-feel, but this has a more moderate feel to it.
5 Beans is a tasty beer with a ton of flavor that still remains extremely drinkable.
