Notes/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.

This is a pretty nice beer. This pours a nice dark brown color with a tan head. You have the nice smell of malts, caramel, and chocolate. Just like the smell, you can taste the malts, caramel and chocolate; what I think you should expect from a porter. Drinking the beer left a lingering taste in the mouth with some bitters at the end.
