From yet another Texas town I haven’t been to since the brewpub explosion hit. Glad bottles are making it to Houston, though I don’t remember where I picked this one up. (Also a fine problem to have!) So anyway, an excellent straight-forward porter with no gimmickry. Lots of roastiness. Coffee, cocoa, molasses. Yum.

(En fût à la brasserie): Une structure céréalière assez mince, de l’anis, des grains brûlés et quelques artifices chocolatés en finale.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2012
This beer pours a deep dark brown with a small short lasting off-white head. Lacing present. The aroma has a dry malty fragrance. The taste is a burnt/roasted malty flavor with a coffee notes and a slight pleasant hoppy aftertaste. The mouth feel is medium and smooth. This is a good porter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. According to the brewer, this is not the base beer for the oak-aged porter which I also reviewed. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and chocolate. Fairly straightforward, but also very enjoyable. It gives you what you want in a porter. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of roasted malt and chocolate cocoa in the flavor. There is also a little bit of dark fruit, mainly cherries and plums. However, the fruit takes a back seat to the big, roasted chocolate notes. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
