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.

Acquired on a recent trip to Midland, Tx. Pours a ruby brown in the glass. Wonderful aroma of Cocoa Puffs or Cocoa Pebbles with a hint of coffee thrown in as well. Clean taste of light roasted mocha coffee followed by a pleasant bitter coffee aftertaste. Overall, a nice easy drinking porter.

Did not care for this one at all. Way too carbonated. You can taste some of the chocolate roasted flavor. This brew leaves a lot to be desired.

Nice and toasty porter with plenty if hops which I was not expecting. I would definitely look for it again though not necessarily as a porter. Everyone I want in a porter... Plus the hops.

Pours brown with a small tan head. Smells faintly of chocolate and hints of roast. Taste is chocolate, roast, hints of coffee. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Big Bend No. 22 Porter finishes with a soft bitterness.

A bit shy on the first sip but soon blossoming into loads of toasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate and delicious bitter coffee beans.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Chocolate and roasted malts, with hints of nuts greet the nose. An opaque dark brown pour with a robust and lasting tan head that produces abundant lacing. The palate is lightly sweet - milk chocolate, toasted malts, cola, and suggestions of nuts. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, this was a enjoyable and satisfying porter. Go Big Bend Brewing!

Clear dark beer from a can. Taste of bold rosted coffee carmel with medium malt. Got it from a friend from Alpine, TX. This is high quality beer from a remote place.
