Faction Palace XXX Porter

20180204:
This beer had no smell. There was carbonation.

The peppers in the sandwich I was eating gave the beer a spice.


The beer was not malty. There was a little bitterness.

The beer ended alright. Overall, the beer was average. I give it 3.0 out of 5 stars. 7:38PM PT
