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.

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.

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.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
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.
