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. (294 characters)

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. (475 characters)

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.

Very thin for a porter not offensive, just really lacking. (58 characters)
