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.

Foxbush (2114) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
12 oz bottle This is another of the 12 beers per month as a gift. This porter is excellent. The porter pours a pitch black with tan head and no lacing. Rich aromas of chocolate and licorice greet you. This is one the best I have had. The medium body porter had soft carbonation. As it sits on the palate chocolate and nuts last long on the tongue.

seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Tasted from bottle at 2015 St. Louis Microfest into a willi becher glass. It poured an opaque black colour with persistent beige foam. Crisp graininess, caramelly, toasty, mildly roasty. Great aromatic/biscuity malt notes. Hints of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, slight tartness. Nice English ale esters. Medium body and carbonation, complex aftertaste. Well-crafted and tasty.

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.
