COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A trademark beer of the Santa Fe Brewing Companys 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 ounce bottle from my friend Ryan. The beer is a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has a good roasty charred character with a subtle caramel sweetness throughout. Medium sweetness, but the finish has some mild bitterness coming through. Medium body and medium carbonation.
