Initially some smoke and hop aroma. Citrus taste, the hops came through. A nice tasty hopped porter, well integrated with a hoppy finish. A few weeks after best date but it was just fine. A very nice porter, thanks Steve S. Middling mouthfeel. Nicely drinkable.

12 oz bottle poured into stein.

A - Black with a tinge of light around the edges. Light brown / off white head.

S - Roasted malt, a hint of hops, subtle sweetness.

T - Again, roasted malt, a hint of hops, and a little bit of sweetness to counter the bitterness. Best drunk as soon as possible, as the hops definitely fade with time.

M - A bit thin for a porter. Moderate carbonation, bitterness lingers for a bit.

O - A solid porter, interesting in that it is roasty and hoppy at the same time. Good to try once, but I wouldn't seek it out again.

12 oz bottle pours pretty much black with a decent cap of tan head. Retention and lacing are average.

Nose is about equal parts tropical/grassy hop and roasty malt. Smells like it might have some much needed sweetness to offset the hops and roast. It smells great, although I am skeptical of mixing amarillo (a typically tropical hop) with a porter.

Not bad, the juiciness stays up front for the most part while the roasty malt holds back for the middle/end. It is definitely an interesting experiment and the full-ish, finely carbonated mouthfeel certainly helps. Pretty low on sweetness and initially I thought that might be bad, but now I am not so sure...it kinda plays to the beers strengths. I’m digging it; I think Real Ale is batting 1.000 with this Brewers' Cut series. This may be my least favorite so far, but it is still easily worth a sixer purchase or two.

Appearance: The body is a deep mahogany brown, crowned with a massive, dense , coarse tan head, whic retains superbly. The lacing is of the Belgian style. There are numerous columns of fast-rising bubbles, which serve to buttress the head.

Aroma: Abundant leafy and grassy herbal hops dominate the aroma. There are also notes of coffee, earth, and particularly roasted malt.

Taste: Opens with solid, balanced herbal hops and classic roasted malt. The hops dominate the taste, although not to the extent of diminishing the malt. As the taste progresses, the hops ascend a bit, but the roasted malt remains. Finishes with a mild, lingering herbal hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, with a hint of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Rather hoppy for my taste, but well made, and easy to appreciate.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass.

Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in April, 2013, for $8.99/six-pack.

The beer pours a solid dark brown color with a filmy off white head that left plenty of lacing on the way down. It's smell is mostly coffee and molasses with a bit of piney hop aroma. Tastes pretty sweet with caramel and mocha with a slight fruity hop bite and more malty sweetness. It has a medium body and is silky smooth, with low carbonatiion and a tasty lingering finish and feel. Real Ale just keeps on coming out with amazing products and I will continue to seek out every beer they come out with.

This beer has a nice appearance. Looks dark brown, not quite too black; like a smooth porter. Perhaps, just a little bit on the light side. The look is very good, looking almost like an espresso. Thin lacing that invites you to try.

You can definitely smell the amarillo hops from the dry-hopping. The smell is rather interesting, as this is not something you usually find in a porter. The chocolate and toasty notes underneath follow after the hops.

Taste is similar to the nose. You can taste the amarillo hops up front. Citrusy, a tad mangoey. Right after the hops you taste the porter. A smooth, not too bitter porter with some notes of chocolate. This tastes remarkably similar to a black ipa. Not as bitter, but with similar hop flavor and aroma. Just a little heavier on the mouthfeel, but not too much. As a porter, the mouthfeel was on the thin side.

Overall, a very enjoyable beer, and one I'll definitely seek out again. One of the best I've tried from Real Ale. Well done.
