4Beans by Sixpoint Brewing
Brewery: Sixpoint Brewing
Style: Imperial Coffee Stout
Beer God’s Notes
When I took my first sip of this, I was overwhelmed by the amount of coffee that was in here. Granted, the beer IS called 4Beans. But still, sometimes breweries will make a coffee stout and forget to add in the essence of coffee. There’s a lot of roastiness and coffee bean flavor, but it also has a nice smoothness to it.
With the addition of Madagascar vanilla beans, 4BEANS takes Sixpoint Imperial Porter to the next level. Romano beans used by bygone brewers provide body, as the flavors of dark malt, cocoa and coffee are rounded out by smooth vanilla. The result is a quadrality of roasted, savory, and complex flavors. Modern formulation meets Baltic tradition and BKLYN partnership… it’s Mad Science.
