Firestone Walker's Reserve Porter is another justification for Firestone Walker being one of my top five breweries. It Pours a nearly opaque brown, and what little head there is fades to slight edge suds pretty quickly. The aroma is a complex malt with tones of coffee and hops, and the flavor is big and rich and a little acerbic. The finish has more hop burn than I expected. This is a fine porter.
