COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For most, the number 22 doesn’t mean much. In West Texas, it was our lifeblood. Everything came by train, again and again and again. The people of West Texas were here to stay. So today we tip our can to the #22 Southern Pacific Railroad Depot—located in Alpine, TX.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 19, 2015
This 12 oz can was courtesy of Jack Nash in Eureka, CA Poured a dark red color almost brown with good sized tan head. Light lacing. Nose of ripe fruitsd coffee, and chocolate. Medium body. Flavor shows first chocolate malts, then the fruit, coffee, and finally floral hops. Finishes chocolate bitter. More like a brown than a porter but that does not really matter. I rate my beer on how they taste. This one tastes pretty good.

degbert (1374) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Can. Pours a very reddish brown with a fine-grained, creamy, tan head. Extremely mild nose has elements of coffee, Worcestershire sauce, and soy. Somewhat sweet on the tongue, with coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and graham cracker notes; nicely balanced, with a good smokiness to it. Finish is long and well integrated. Incongruous nose belies the pretty decent porter beneath it.

bubbleflubber (2039) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours the deepest mahogany–prune into the glass with an initial frothy tan head that diminishes to trace lacing and a spotty cap. The nose is of grainy caramel-filled chocolates. Roasted notes, chocolates, nuts and slightly burnt grains in the mouth, finishing with a curt nuttiness. Semi-sweet and toasty, this has a medium body, lightly active carbonation and does down the palate substantially, without being too heavy in the mouth. Decent brew that feels much more like a complex brown than a porter. Just missing some essential style characteristics that a decent brown covers. All-in-all, quaffable and easy-drinking. Not a bad brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TizzleJizzle (731) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz. can at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a clear brown with a beige head. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, and slightly nutty. Average carbonation, medium body. Standard fare porter, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing

RedSox2004 (1443) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Dark dark brown with a smallish tan head and modest lace. Aromas of dark malts and notes of coffee and earth. Flavors follow with chocolate malts, dark fruit, milky sweetness and coffee beans. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, minimal carbonation and a lingering milk chocolate in the finish.

floydslip (256) - Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2015
Dark brown beer with a thick foamy root beer head. Rather faint nose of cream soda, vanilla, and brown sugar without the deep roasted aromas usually found in this style. The flavor is also light, but a bit richer than the aroma, with some milk chocolate, toffee, and chai finished with a slight bitterness. Really light bodied and flavored for a porter, but pleasant enough.

wlajwl (4623) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Aroma is dark malts and notes of coffee and slight earthiness. The flavor is dark malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a mix of tart and acidic in the finish.

Beer of month club. Pours a dark brown with a whitish head. Nose is roasted malt. Taste has a nutty quality to it - almost a cross between a brown ale and a porter. Also had the roasted malts, a touch of chocolate. Pretty light and easy to drink for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (1389) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Above-average porter. No real aroma. Nice dark brown color but I think the feel was too light and watery. Good bold roasted and earthy flavor, which saved it.
