This is an updated review: Oct. 21 2016- Finally found this available at the liquor store, in cans no less! Alamo City liquors in San Antonio. Don't let the low-bid packaging throw you off. This is a top-rate porter. Initially pours jet black with a nice 1 finger foamy head. Smell is sweet, caramel but a little burnt smell to it. Taste is sweet and malty with good mouthfeel. There is a pronounced coffee flavor to it as well, particularly at the finish. It is not overpowering and blends well with the sweet caramel flavor. An excellent beer.
