COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter is smooth, chocolaty & sessionable. Medium bitterness, mild hop flavor & layers of malt make it easy to rock the block to the "dark side."

This is a really solid porter style beer. It was well balanced. It was not too sweet, not too roasted/burnt. I liked it.

Nice to see more porters springing up in Texas and a bonus when they’re this good. Nice balance of bitter and sweet chocolate over coffee and caramel.
