Year of New Beer: Barrel Aged 3 Beans, Sixpoint Brewery (NY)

Written By: Dion on 12/07/2017

While the girls explored the grocery side of Whole Foods, I decided to explore the beer selection at their in-house bar. Several beers I've never had on tap, but this one caught my eye. Cocoa powder and a rich coffee dominate the nose, with only subtle hints of bourbon emerging initially. On the tongue, the chocolate proves to be a touch sweeter, with the roasted coffee bean serving to provide a nice layer of earthy bitterness. Bourbon and traces of oak arrive as the glass warms, but the alcohol is restrained and well-balanced. This is quite good and worth a try.
