A trademark beer of the Santa Fe Brewing Company’s master brewer, Ty Levis, the State Pen Porter has every reason to be one of his favorites. It is flavorful, swimming with notes of nuts and chocolate; it is drinkable, so drinkable that it is almost as if pint after pint were drinking itself; and it packs a punch, so much so that its drinkability rapidly gives way to a euphoric intoxication that only a true Porter drinker can understand. Malts: 2-row pale, 30-37 l. Crystal, 70-80 l. Crystal, Chocolate. Hops: Cluster, Cascade, Willamette.

12 oz bottle. (Whole Foods) Las Vegas, NV.
Black colour with a tiny light tan head. Roasted malt, mild coffee, liquorice and sweat in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, mild ashy dryness, mild milky sweetness and some hoppy notes. Quite thin.

A black pour with a lightly tan head. It has a big aroma full of chocolate, nuts, licorice, and mild coffee. The medium body has creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet and roasted with a silky finish.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a rather large tan head on there. Nose is toastier than it is roasty, but has a nice dry black coffee smell to it. Taste is dark and roasty, and nicely drinkable. Good dry porter and fairly light.

razzanof (72) - Leavenworth, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2015
From a bottle. Pours extremely dark. Hints of malts, coffee, and nuts. Taste of roasted nutty flavors throughout; almost a burnt coffee taste. Not my favorite porter, that's for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
