Real Ale Coffee Porter pours beautifully with a rich dark brown body, along with a thin mocha lacing. Aroma is strongly roasted, with coffee taking the main stage.
Dark roasted coffee beans predominantly dominates the palate. Rich, earthy, and bitter. The complexity of the malts, twisted with the coffee is wonderful. The richness, earthiness, and bitterness - all blend together and truly produce something special here. Finishes with a dry roasted bitterness, and excellent balance thanks to a nice touch of citrus hops.
Top-echelon Porter right here folks. One of my favorite Porters, dangerously addictive - along with being one of the best coffee beers overall as well, oh yeah, and my favorite Real Ale beer.
