3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of an gourmet cafe with toasty malts, chocolate and coffee, Near black tinges of amber red when held to light and a tan head. Taste is quite bold and just as it sounds a deep rich coffee and porter with good body.
Overall this is rather fantastic and would pair well with smoked... anything as well as rich desserts.

Pours a deep dark brown with almost no head, a bit of carapils could help as it looks a bit tired before I start......aroma of chocolate and overwhelming coffee, with a hint of smoke......taste is much like the aroma a smoked coffee with a hint of chocolate fading into a slightly bitter ending with a medium mouthfeel.

On draught at Freakin’ Frog. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Light-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt flavor with some chocolate in the background. The finish is sweet with a caramel mocha aftertaste. Above average overall.

If you like coffee, you’re going to like this one. Pours a nice brown color with off-white head. Coffee, coffee, and some roasted malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice coffee note.

[Bottle] Deep, dark brown pour with a dense beige colored head. Abundant roasted coffee aroma with lighter hints of vanilla. Dark roast coffee, dark chocolate and light wood ash in the taste. Nice roasty and mildly acrid finish. Average palate. Pretty good! Tasting notes from 2012.

Real ale has become one of my favorite brewers. This one was very strong, and had a strong coffee flavor with chocolate caramel. I love my porters so I can’t really say anything bad about it lol.

Very nice and mild coffee note. Some Carmel notes on the finish. Very smooth could be a sessionable choice
