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.

From the bottle, the beer poured a dark black with a centimeter of foam. Roasted coffee and chocolate dominate the aroma along with some lingering barley hull. Nicely roasted malt swarm the palate up front, depositing a little bite through the center. It finishes with hint of hops, although a dash more would be great. A smooth enjoyable way to end the day.
