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.

MEH... picked up by accident, was actually reaching for the DieselPunk IPA... I do enjoy a good porter occasionally ... I would've kept moving down the aisle... light sweet faint chocolate nose muted flavors, almost washed out hoppiness. Not too terribly "malty". I love different styles on occasion but this one I may not go back to...

One more by World Brews...

Poured a deep ruby red, pretty clear. One thing this "brewery" gets right is the appearance of their beers. They all look the part.

Aroma on this one isn't all bad. it's very, very faint, as are most from this brewery. But what I can pick up is a bit of roasty malt, just as it should be. I'm crossing my fingers that the aroma carries over into the flavor.

Aaaand it doesn't. Again. Not terrible this time. Just really mild. There is a slight cocoa up front, followed by a tinge of bitterness that could be from hops or roasted malts. It kills the effect by fading to a really odd, sour aftertaste. But not soapy, so there's that! The flavor is weak, coming on slowly then running away quickly. Nothing robust about this. It's not off, no soap, no metal, just not good.

Very thin and watery mouthfeel, which plays into the flavor leaving so quickly after each drink. Should be a bit more substantial for the style.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the last thing I currently have in my refrigerator that was put together by World Brews and their contract breweries. It's far and away the best one, and it still doesn't pass muster. It's not bad, but with scores and scores of much better options, it's best to pass this one by and pick up a good beer. Why waste time or money on something like this?

Reddish brown color. Not the best porter I've had. It was worth a shot as its a relatively new brand I've seen at the local grocery. It doesn't have enough of the dark taste as I like. The coffee/chocolate tastes that are characteristics of a lot of Porters that I love.

The equivalent of a piss poor macro for fans of porters. Starts out fine with a black body and one finger tan head and the aroma isn't too bad but it's mostly grains and roasted malts. Then I drank this bad boy and ugg. It has nothing but a slight char and dry feel, no sweetness or complexity of malts and if there is any hops at all they've been nuked. Basically like drinking coffee without any coffee-esque flavors (think old coffee beans).

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.

First taste was the best, then not all that great. A touch of coffee and chocolate over dull barley grains. Yeast added a slight twang to it. Alchohol was definitely there for being 6.5%, but not necessarily in a bad way. Carbonation was a bit on the high side, but it was definitely a beer I could stomach. I'm pretty sure the can was over a year old (the four pack was marked down to $5 and they are 16oz cans and it looked like julian code, it was either 2012 or 2013). Not a bad beer overall though.
