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.

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.

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).

Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: Hardwood Artisans pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $2.99 for a 4-pack
Purchased: March 22, 2016
Consumed: March 26, 2016
Misc.: 2024 11:14 on the bottom of the can (I know 11:15 a.m. for the 11:14, but not sure what the 2024 is)

Saw this for $2.99 for a 4-pack of cans (I think they also had $3.99 for a 6-pack of bottles) and instantly picked it up after grabbing their IPA. Found out when I got home that it is under the umbrella of World Brews, so I’m not expecting that much. At least it will be a good value either way.

Poured an auburn, amber, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-tan, frothy head. Could make out a few bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Poor lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.25)

Initial thought on the smell was an amber more than a porter, but definitely a porter. Got roasted nuts, light toffee, toasted grain, faint chocolate, toasted brown sugar and hints of light coffee. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste followed the nose somewhat, maybe a bit darker overall. Got roasted nuts, toasted grain, toffee, sugary dark caramel, dark fruits, light chocolate, toasted brown sugar and cocoa. (Taste - 3.50)

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Rather smooth finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was a pretty solid porter. Fairly tasty and drinkable. And cheap. (Overall - 3.50)

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.

Sampling last night on 4/6/14. From the World Brews in Rochester, New York. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a pitch black in color as you can't see through it at all. A very thin off-white head is seen that settles down to just around the glass for the drink. Some spotty lacing is seen but not a lot. The aroma is of roasted malts and coffee beans. Taste is about the same with a nice roasted malt flavor mixed in with some black coffee. The coffee is not over powering at all unlike some porters. Perfect carbonation which as most porters, is below the norm. Perfect actually. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. Overall a great porter

Mine was brewed for World Brews in Rochester, NY. Pours moderately dark brown with a small head, dissipating rapidly. Lacing as you enjoy the beer. Smell of grain and roasted malt, although the taste is a bit dry.

Pours clear dark brown with amber highlights. Smells a bit metallic, roasty, bitter chocolate, and slightly of prunes. Taste is sweet, roasted, and metallic as well, with a thinner feel than expected. Overall, a decent Porter. Cheers!
