3.56/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass
A: Opaque brown with little head and virtually no lacing
S: Toasty malt, caramel and alcohol (surprising, given the <7 ABV)
T: Toasted grain and some coffee and chocolate overtones. A nice hoppy bite obscures the sweetness that can ruin some stouts for me.
M: A nice clean tingle on the tongue. Perfect level of carbonation. None of the syrupy/oily feel of many stouts.
O: I've never been much of a fan of Sixpoint. Most of their brews either bore me or strike me as failed experiments. The Crisp and Bengali Tiger are both interesting, but both seem to fall well outside the norms for their labeled styles and are not something I have a great desire to drink regularly. This is the first beer from them I'd buy again fairly eagerly. My only quibble (see above) is with calling this a stout. Diesel is a nice, clean, refreshing beer that to my palate is much more in line with a porter or, even more so, a brown ale. But no matter what they choose to call it, this is a nice, very drinkable beer that I will definitely be buying again.
Serving type: can
