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! :)

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2003 What a great beer...I actually elected to have a second pint of this stuff instead of trying a new beer to throw onto this site. Looked gorgeous....very dark with a brown head. The aroma had coffee and cocoa...the taste followed suit, but I loved the way it all came together in the end....a cocoa powdery mouthfeel along with more coffee and hops....rather unique, very good! RERATE: This is my favorite beer of '03 so far....it tastes like those authentic chocolate covered coffee beans you get in latin america.....an excellent beer brewed in the hills of central Texas.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Pours a rich dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is strongly of coffee, as expected, with nice malty undertones. Tastes almost just like coffee with a nice alcohol kick and mild hoppiness. The fresh spring water can be tasted as well. Full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture that is a little bit thick. There is not very much carbonation, but enough for the brew to be alive. Real Ale Coffee Porter finishes smooth, rich, creamy, a little sweet and a little dry. I’m so glad I found this.
