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.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an unbranded stemmed British ale glass

Pours a dark cola brown capped by a one and a half finger light beige head. Average retention, little to no lacing. HInts of toffee, roasted malt, and bakers chocolate on the nose. Roasty dark chocolate malt, hints of caramel, and nutty cashew-like notes. Medium body, fairly high level of carbonation especially for a porter that adds a bit of crispness. Overall, a decent porter that is smooth, however it leans to being a bit overcarbonated for a porter.
