A little light for a porter and not what I’m used to for this . Not much body and taste kind of stale.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2013
12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun, sampled with friends last weekend and rated by notes taken. Aroma of sweet malt, watered down coffee and yeast. Appearance seems a bit light for the style. Sweet malty taste seemed to lack the coffee punch that I hoped for. I get more of a mocha/ chocolate flavor. Dry finish. Not at all bad, just had higher expectations.

Nose of coffee and roast. Taste coffee, chocolate, just a hint of dark fruit. Slight bite from hops. Good length and moderate mouthfeel

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle. nice dark pour with a beige head. Good sweet malty coffee taste with some chocolate in the aftertaste. An extremely drinkable porter. Way to go Texas. Would buy again

pushkinwow (1990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
12oz bottle. Thin brown with a biege head. Roasted malts, coffee, bit of smoke, some herbs, caramel, toffee. Mild body / little thin, mild carbonation, malty chocolate sweet with a slight bite, becomes quite dry, some more cocoa, but of coffee grinds.

sjohnny (365) - - DEC 7, 2012
Roasted malt, coffee, and slight yeast aroma. Dark brown with hints of ruby red. Medium tan head that dissipates quickly. Lighter bodied than expected. Coffee and dry roastiness. Not bad.

kevinator (887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Nice variance on a porter. Coffee aroma is definitely present with the roasted malts. Also a hint of sweetness. Cool dark coffee color with medium and sustainable head. Creamy palate. Roasted flavors with lingering malt essence. Less sweet than suspected but coffee is there and lingers as well. Another good offering from Real Ale.

Wordsworth (130) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Coffee and molasses nose that tastes almost exactly as it smells. Pure black with a thin creamy head and good lacing.
