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.

Pour: dark brown w/ a very small tan head. Smell: malt, espresso, chocolate, very mild earthy hops & alcohol. Taste: malt, espresso, light chocolate, dark bread w/ a slightly herbal bitterness. Full bodied but not heavy and it’s easy 2 drink. Very nice! :)

Dark brown with a little tan head. Subtle aroma, a little chocolate and toffee. Coffee is more apparent in the taste and finish. Pretty good.

Draft pint at holiday christmas party. Pours dark black with little head. Aroma of sweet coffee. Smooth coffee and dark roasty taste. Not very bitter or astringent with the coffee flavor which can be predominant in coffee beers. Clean rich mouthfeel with no sticky residue and no bitter coffee aftertaste. This stuff is legit.

Poured from cask into pintish glass. Aroma is surprisingly sweet. Mouthfeel is cask like with really gentle carbonation and moderately thick.... almost oily. Taste is very sweet and malty, a little roasted. Very enjoyable if simple.

12 oz bottle in pint glass. No head. Pitch black, nothing happening much on the nose. Kinda like a toned town sweet stout with subtle notes of coffee and dark malts. Somewhat tasty... but I'm looking for a bit more complexity.
Sour and bitter finish that seems not in the beer but rather that the carbonation is not right.
Just short of the mark. Not quite sessionable but not really worth it to just drink one either if there are other available options.

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.
