I'm just getting into Porters and so I may have over rated the brew, but Wow.
I'm going to use it as my base line Porter from which all others will be Judged..
This was brewed in Rochester NY, which makes it affordable, for World Brews.
It does drink in three taste stages and they are enjoyable to the Porter novice like I.
You can feel safe letting your curious friends try this brew.
My one daughter liked it as well.

16 oz can poured into a nonic.

I don't have much background information on this beer other than that it's contract brewed by World Brews/Uberbrew. The porter came in a 4-pack of cans for $6 at Kroger, so I figured, why not? The porter pours a dark brown/crimson, bordering on black. It's topped by a massive rocky tan head that leaves excellent lacing behind and definitely sticks around. We're off to a good start.

The aroma is a little mild but still holds all the characteristics of a traditional porter – a slightly nutty, roasty profile with hints of coffee and chocolate and just a dash of earthy bittering hops. It's quite pleasant and not at all “off par” for the style. It seems thin with no real hop presence, but then again, all things considered, this is good.

Dieselpunk delivers what one would expect for a contract brewed, inexpensive “craft” beer. It hits the core of the style but doesn't necessarily stand out or challenge the drinker. A smidge of earthy bitterness hits the front of the tongue before going into a malty middle and finish – nuts, caramel, and toffee, transitioning into coffee flavors and a bit of smoke on the finish. It goes down super easy and is pleasant. While it's not mindblowing, I can't knock this one.

The massive head on the pour gave me a clue to how highly carbonated this was, but I was surprised to find that it was smooth and somewhat creamy with a malty finish.

For $6 a four-pack, you can't knock this. Try this on your non-craft friends, or if you're looking for a “summer porter.”

3.5/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - dark brown with a thin brown, bubbly head that has decent retention

S - chocolate, some grains, roasted malts

T - roasted malts, some faint grainy sweetness, some chocolate, some faint coffee but without any of the associated bitterness

M - medium bodied, smooth, a bit crisp

This is really a solid Porter considering I paid less than $5 for the 4-pack of 16oz cans. It has a decent flavor and nice drinkability. It can definitely be cleaned up, but as is, it is a nice, drinkable, affordable porter.
