Can. Pours a clear, brown color with a thin head. Aroma is soft but nice. Doesn't smell very sweet or rich. It smells like a restrained Porter. Flavor I slightly chocolatey, yeasty, and roasty. Some caramel, too. Wouldn't mind some more intensity but it's mellowness is sneakily enjoyable. I was surprised that it was 6.4%. I would have pegged it at 5%. It's very light bodied for the style. Quite bubbly. Different than most Porters but I'm not necessarily sure the uniqueness is a good thing.

Very thin for a porter not offensive, just really lacking.

Aroma is dark malts and notes of coffee and slight earthiness. The flavor is dark malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a mix of tart and acidic in the finish.

Pours dark brown with copious soapy white head, good retention. Smell of a roasted malts, an non specific fruit ester and a nutty aroma. Taste like a well balanced nut brown ale, hint of dark malts with a fairly astringent quality from the copious carbonation. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, significant carbonation leads to a very clean finish. A very pleasant nut brown ale, though marketed as a porter. Easily quaffable, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick this one up. Very good.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a finger high beige colored head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering up he surface.
S: Moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is very nutty and also has some hints of dark malts. Neither bitterness nor sweetness are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer reminds me a lot like a full-bodied nut brown ale given all of the nutty flavors. However, it is very drinkable and goes down easily.

Smooth. Had in 30 degree weather so it was very warming.

Went to big bend brewing on July 4th and what a trip! Great place and the standout was the number 22 porter. Easy drinking dry porter. Subtle flavors and good mouthfeel. This would be a great daily drinker especially with the low six pack price. I wish it had a bit more flavor and smell to it.
