UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Nice. Pretty dark pour. Coffee taste could have been stronger and played a larger role in my opinion.3.6jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2009
RE-RATE 2/9/10 Very dark pour with reddish tints through the light. Quite a light smell. Some dark malts but not much to impact upon. Mouthfeel is smooth and coating. Taste has some biting chocolate with a medicinal aftertaste. Pepperminty in the wrong kind of way.
Black with a lovely tan head. Smell is exactly what I would expect from porter with definite coffee overtones. Taste is pleasant with some bitterness from the malts. Brussels lace is evident and the beer a more quality look.

On tap. Pours with a thick, foamy, khaki colored head and a very deep, near black body. Good lace. Aroma of coffee grounds, vanilla and a touch of spice. Taste is clean roast and a bit of vanilla with a few lingering banana esters. Longish duration. Syrupy consistency, full bodied with light carbonation. Good Texas porter. blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2009

Draft @ flying saucer houston. Poured very dark with a smallish head. Aroma was....coffee! and so was taste. Some chocks etc. Pretty good.

Pint at Opal Divines on December 27, 2008. Solid black. Small, frothy white head. Aroma of coffee and malts. London Portery. Moderate mouthfeel with a pleasing coffee-malt flavor. Thin, but solid and easy on the palate. Easy to drink and yummy... just enough coffee to make it interesting, but not enough to really tell this is a coffee porter. I think this may be one of my fave Real Ale brews! kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2008
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. ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2008
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. BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2008
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. mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2008
