Collingwood’s The Mill Brewery has been one of the small brewers embracing tinnies as a means of getting their beer into homes, ratcheting up the frequency of their canned releases since COVID-19 hit. Among their autumnal releases is Ménage à trois, a collaboration with neighbours Everyday Coffee that’s made its first appearance in cans after appearing as a keg only release in 2019. Dubbed a Coffee Chocolate Vanilla Porter, it’s brewed with cold brewed Mucho Gusto – a bold espresso blend – plus cacao nibs and vanilla beans.
Like any good espresso blend, the beer itself is one of balance and integration, where an impressively rich, silky smooth body creates initial first thoughts of melted dark chocolate. Alongside that chocolate you'll find fruitier roasted coffee notes and hints of vanilla in a beer that retains a dry finish that keeps sessionability paramount.
