16 oz can
Poured clear but very dark brown, with a good head. Spotty foamy left on the glass. Relatively light bodied for style, with medium carbonatin.

Aroma: nice (near 4), roasty smell with a touch of toffee and dark fruit. Some alcohol esters.

Flavor: good, near neutral, sweet/bitter balance. A touch of dark fruit and caramel. Mildly bitter finish with some coffee in the aftertaste.

O: a light, chocolately porter. Cheap and decent quality. Should appeal to fans of brown ales which it resembles.

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is roasted malt, sort of plain. The taste was not good, very metallic. Overall, a below average beer from World Brews.

A: Deep dark brown in the glass, a lighter brown as it pours, with a nice tan head on top.

S: Caramel, and brown sugar with some raisins.

T: Caramel and some light brown sugar. Fairly tame, a little bit of a roasted flavor, and it tastes like an English yeast strain. Fairly subdued flavors, but easy drinking and approachable for someone who may be new to dark beers.

M: Medium to medium light in feel, the carbonation is a little more active than I would like in a porter. Not sure if that is an attempt to be more marketable for a wider range of palettes.

O: Overall a decent porter, nothing spectacular but nothing glaringly bad. Fairly drinkable, although a little bit of a yawner.

Appearance - poured from a bottle into a glass. Dark brown almost black color. Two finger off-white Carmel head. Decent lacing.

Smell - roasted coffee beans, java smells.

Taste - very similar to the smell, what u would expect from a porter.

Mouthfeel - average.

Overall - a very decent, sessionable porter.
