kevinator (2171) - 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.

Originally rated on 1/18/09. Tried this today at Opal Devines in Austin, A deep black body with a thin light tan cap that left fair lace. Aroma and flavors of coffee, roasted malts and nuts, a little sweet. A decent amount of alcohol that was well hidden. Overall a good porter that will drink again and would recommend
