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.

BeerRenter76 (473) - Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Faint aromas of chocolate, maybe some earth. Nice dark body with a frothy cap that is disappearing quickly, but it leaves some fairly decent lace. Flavor isnt really big but, it has some bitter coffee with a dry chocolately finish.

Deep brown almost black with a cream head. Nose is sweet malts, chocolate powder, and roast. Easy palate, heavy roast, chocolate powder, easy finish.

rougeau13 (2307) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Brown with a foamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, and grass. Tastes roasty and nutty and slightly bitter. Medium bodied. A decent brown labeled as a porter.

hayduke (4294) - 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 (1521) - 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 (2114) - 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 (754) - 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
