COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hauxe (938) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2017
Pours dark brown from the bottle and leaves a frothy, beige head. Aroma is strongly of coffee, accompanied by smokey, earthy notes. Taste is bittersweet with a very mild sour twist at the end. Overall covers a wide spectrum of flavor, and does so with a rich, smooth body that keeps the alcohol well hidden. Good stuff.

Andrew196 (1995) - Katy, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2017
A good looking beer - pours black with a well contrasted white head. Aroma is nutty, coffee, molasses. A bit too thin and boring on the tongue.... More roasted malts, coffee, a little cocoa, not bad but a bit too much like the best beer at a bad brew pub.
