Draft at the source. Very dark maroon brown color. Aroma of coffee, milk chocolate. Taste is smooth espresso, what the Italians call "liscio." Pleasant.

Beerenberger (1475) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Aroma of dark fruit, with some floral notes. Pours a thick inky black with a robust espresso head and no lacing. The taste follows the nose - raisins, leather, a floral quality, with a touch grain and chocolate in the finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Nice round mouthfeel. Overall, a very satisfying and tasty porter. Will drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Most excellent brew. Had this at the Bijou Theatre with my theatre mug. Black coffee hue. Laces the glass with a swirly wave. Espresso notes. Full bodied porter. Ultra smooth wash down. Absolutely drinkable and enjoyable! It gets better with each glass! Here’s to great begginings and I dare say, a cast of great brews from this up and coming SA microbrewery.

Great local brew. The taste lives up to the name: Robust. Deep black color. In-your-face aroma. Definitely worth seeking out if you're in San Antonio. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours opaque black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, leather, and caramel malt, prunes, smoke, dates, and earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt, light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.
