In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Sixpoint Brewing. This is a new beer from this Brooklyn base brewery and the beer is called 3Beans. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their beers, you know about the history this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
The color of this unique beer from Sixpoint Brewing is a brown to dark brown color with a slight brown white color head on it. The smell is a heavy coffee bean to the beer. The taste is a full body of complex taste. It has coffee to toffee and a little chocolate. It is a understatement to say there is a ton going on in this beer. It is not drinkable beer but good beer with a cigar on a Sunday afternoon. Even though, I do not smoke.
Here is a description from the beer can:
Take thou also unte thee wheat, and barley, and beans…and part them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to creat a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.
Here is a desecration of the beans off the packaging of the beer:
Favored by brewers in centuries past, these hardy legumes are blended with barley malt during the mashing to feed the fermentation, while their proteins add texture and complexity.
Liberated from their lager pods, the fermented husks of the roasted cacao beans add notes of rich chocolate to brew. Provided by Mast Brothers Chocolate

Beans And Beers:
A brief history, As the culture of beer spread around the globe, diverse new brewing styles emerged. When the brewers of old Baltic Europe riffed on a popular foreign style, they formulated new recipes by harnessing familiar techniques and locally available ingredients. 3Beans is a Sixpoint’s tribute to these bygone brewers: a rich, oak-aged brew with our own additions of chocolate and coffee.

In closing, this beer has a ton going on in it. It has a full body while giving the craft beer drinker a complex taste that will keep them coming back for more. Every sip, the drinking experience gives the beer drinker something different every time. At first, you will smell and taste the coffee but when you break it down more you will notice a few other things in the beer. I really enjoyed this beer and I will be picking it as long as it is available. I need to get back to Brooklyn to visit their brewery. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
