A rich, robust porter with a dry finish. Brewed with organic hops, malted barley, and Ruta Maya Shade Grown organic coffee beans from Chiapas, Mexico. Located on the town square near the Blanco River, Real Ale is a great destination for a day trip in the Hill Country. Start with a tour of the brewery and sample our fine libations. Take a dip in the refreshing spring-fed river. When hunger strikes, BBQ at the park or try the local fare. Blanco also offers antique shops and art galleries. Available all over Austin, and at various bars, restaurants, and grocers in the Hill Country, San Antonio, Dallas/Ft. Worth, and Houston. Be sure to ask for us by name at your favorite places. Thanks for your support. ABV: 5.6%, IBU: 40, OG(plato): 14

Dark black, medium head. Malty,chocolately aroma. Medium lacing. Light in the mouth for such a dark beer. Very, very refreshing for a porter, I didn,t detect the coffe in it, just the malt, and a very slight amunt of chocolate.

On tap. Pours a nice dark brown color with amber lacing. Head is small and coffee colored with a pocked yeasty appearence. Smells of roasted malt, java, and chocolate. Taste is of nice mexican coffee and chocolate. This quite possibly is my favorite porter. Body is medium and the finish is long and warming. Honestly a great beer due to the perfect balance and hidden alcohol presance. Bravo.

I had this on-tap at Ginger Man in Austin and thought it pretty good. It was black and opaque with about 2cm of cream-colored head. Aroma was roasty at frist , with some coffee notes. Flavor was dry roasty with some coffee notes, but not a lot of depth. Mouthfeel was quite dry and good. I would recommend this beer. I had it on-tap at the Ginger Man in Austin.

On draught at Flying Saucer. Has a very dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is a strong coffee and malts. Very easy to drink with not too much of a coffee taste and a smooth finish. Real Ale does it again with another good brew.

Another wonderful Real Ale beer tasted during my Austin visit. On draught. Small head on deep brown liquid. Smooth & creamy. Slightly sweet, with strong & rich coffee overtones. Balanced hop ending. Definitely worth drinking!

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2009 Black with a lovely tan head. Smell is exactly what I would expect from porter with definte coffee overtones. Taste is pleasant with some bitterness from the malts. Brusells lace is evident and the beer a more quality look. Update 12/9/2009 cask rating from Gingerman in Plano. Much more coffee in the cask version like an early morning wake up call from an iced coffee. Smooth and good.

This is a great one... wish it was year-round and more widely available in bottles (for aging). Great roasted coffee malt nose and flavor. Dry, malty, and dark... three of my favorite beer adjectives. On tap.
