Dean’s Beans Coffeehouse Porter

AFFORDABILITY: I don’t know, since I’ve been buying more tasteful beers at a higher cost, my five categories seems limited. I mean, this shit had a good ass taste, as when it comes to fancy assed beers, I like porters that have that touch of chocolate to them. I get pissed every time Yuengling Porter is available at a store along my path, but like two dollars more than regular Yuengling. And Left Hand Blackjack Porter is one of my favorite beers. This had a good chocolatey taste, but was like $4 for a double deuce. 2 out of 5.
DESTROYABILITY: I forgot to pay attention, and usually the chocolate high-dollar porters are more for tasting than destruction. Makes for good winter beers, but I think I was kinda bored with this one. 2 out of 5.
LABEL AESTHETIC: Their label is not that great, as it is all about the coffee shop parallels. I fucking hate coffee, and hate people who drink coffee. I do not want my beers to be all rubbing up along coffeehouse types. It’s like finding out your wife used to sleep with Armenians. 1 out of 5.
CORPORATE MASTER: The Berkshire Brewing Company is some shit I never heard of in Massachusetts. Like I said with the Tap & Die thing before, they must love beer up here, to support all these indies so well that they exist. 5 out of 5.
OVERALL AMBIANCE: Bought this at the same store I bought the 40 of Tap & Die malt liquor, but for some reason my white crackhead story doesn’t translate to this beer, as it seems more hoity-toity. I know that’s not fair on my part, but I think the white crackheads were more down with Tap & Die than this bullshit. (Let’s be honest... the crackheads were probably about Private Stock more than either of those oddball things I got.) 2 out of 5.
