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.

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 (1142) - 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.

llcooldave (1149) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (1014) - Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2014
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.

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2014
A bit shy on the first sip but soon blossoming into loads of toasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate and delicious bitter coffee beans.

Beerenberger (1551) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2014
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!
