look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I believe it is now being brewed under WorldBrews out of Rochester, NY and not Uberbrew. The alcohol content is the same (5.8%) and the review below seems to be spot on with what I experienced.

sm - not any overwhelming notes. A little roasted malt, some hints of chocolate and tobacco.

a - very dark brown, no transparency. light khaki head that doesn't last more than 10 seconds.

t- a very light stout, which I find ironic as dieselpunk is "brewed for taste." It is a very, very drinkable stout and the 5.8% abv is definitely not apparent in the flavor, which is a nice addition. lightly carbonated, it's a smooth drink with no hoppy or bitter back end.

mf - not very creamy, just tickles the tongue and slides right down the gullet.

overall - There are better stouts out there, but this is one that's not going to fill you up or make you feel too heavy.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can served in a Porter Bar goblet. 5.8% ABV and brewed in NY indicated on the can.

A moderately vigorous pour raised a large, fluffy tan head but this soon reduced to a thin top coat.

Aroma: overly earthy and dank (due to English hops?).
Flavor: ~ on style with more chocolate than toffee and more toffee than coffee. The aftertaste is the best aspect of this stout.

Feel: very smooth with lively carbonation that works well.

Overall: decent;

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

First off, the bottle of beer that I have was not brewed in Montana. It says on the side that it was brewed by "World Brews, Rochester, NY." A quick internet search revealed that this brewing company is also known as "Brewmaster's Choice" and as "Genesee Brewery." Suddenly, drinking this beer feels like being in an episode of "The X-Files."

Appearance: 2.75: Black, but slightly brown around the edges. White, CO2 head that never got above a few milimeters in height.

Smell 2.75: Flat bouquet. Very slight smell of chocolate, perhaps from chocolate malt.

Taste 2.75: Front is slightly sweet and tastes washed out. Middle is smoky and chocolatey, but also has a weakness to it. Finish focuses on the malt tastes, with a slight hoppiness and more of the smoke. Aftertaste is short, somewhat sweet and reminiscent of what you would receive after drinking a sugar-free soft drink.

Mouthfeel 2.75: Watery, slightly harsh with pricky CO2 bubbles. Definitely below "okay."

Overall 2.75: Not the best stout I have ever had. This beer...something about it made me not want to try it, but I thought, "why not?" This beer tastes mass-produced, kind of like a Blue Moon attempt at a stout. Glad I got it through a beer-for-beer trade. It is off all over the place: look, smell, etc. Not recommended.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and a few wisps of lacing are left.

3.75 S: This smells a lot like the porter I just drank. Roastiness, hazelnut coffee, toastiness, caramel, chocolate. Pretty good.

3.5 T: It tastes like the porter too, but it has more depth. Chocolate, caramel, roastiness, toastiness, hazelnut coffee. Not amazing, but drinks super easy.

3.25 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.

3.75 D: This is so damn easy to drink. That's about all I need to say.

Says "World Brews - Bottled in Rochester, New York", but it's the same beer. $8.49 six-pack randomly chosen at Kroger. Poured into Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

Appearance: A crystal clear ruby black with a nice two finger head. It bubbled away pretty quickly though, and there's very little lacing to speak of. Eh.

Smell: It just has that aroma of "cheapness" ... like it's not the highest quality of malts. Chocolate. Mild roast. Maybe some coffee and char notes. Dark fruits a bit as it warms. Really just doesn't reek of quality like some of the more well-known breweries.

Taste/feel: Well, it hits your tongue with pretty heavy carbonation, and a thin feel. My tongue got coated with a slight copper-like flavor, and very mild roast notes. That unusual metallic bitterness puts me off a touch. The flavor is incredibly light until the aftertaste, which is the best part of this beer. After swallowing, I get a more robust roast flavor. I find it strange that I get that much flavor on the end, but nothing anywhere else.

Just an A-OK stout... pretty much what I expected given the price. Without a doubt, the best part of Dieselpunk is the aftertaste. That pleasant roast flavor lingers awhile, and I approve of that. This is one of the lightest stouts I've ever had in terms of mouth feel, and the alcohol isn't all that high, so you could have a few of these quite easily. You aren't missing out on much if you haven't had this beer. I'll be honest with you, I grabbed this six-pack because I thought the label was eye-catching. Fortunately for me, even though I don't care much for this beer, I don't hate it. I'll have no trouble finishing the last five.

Sampling now on 4/30/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a dark brownish/black in color with a small khaki head that leaves good lacing when sipped. The aroma is pretty much like other stouts with roasted malt with a hint of coffee and toffee. The taste was very smooth with the roasted malt upfront with the taste of coffee afterwards. No bitter taste either. Really like this one.

Appearance - dark in color, tan colored head. Smell - not much here, small hints of chocolate and perhaps toffee. Taste - mostly getting a toffee smooth flavor. Not bad at all, but I just drank an Old Raspy so yeah. Overall - good starter stout I would say. Nothing to overwhelm a novice.

Poured into a sniffer. Pours dark brown with a head that dissolves immediately and doesn't leave lacing. Aroma of bread and roasted malt. Taste gets better than the smell as some subtle chocolate and black coffee join the roasted malt to make a decent backbone. Odd metallic finish on it. Medium body and low carbonation with no aftertaste or alcohol coming through.
This would probably make a good cooking beer, but it's a little weak. Cool bottle, but the beer itself was missing something and the metallic finish didn't help it's cause.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours very black with a very long lasting tan head.

S - Some coffee and chocolate with a hint of roasted grains.

T - Coffee and chocolate with a malt finish.

M - Good carbonation and "creaminess"

O - A decent enough stout that is worth a try.

One of the worst beers I've ever drank. I'd rather drink bud light.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz can in a snifter. This nice stout pours a brownsih black with a very nice head of dissipating light tan foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and very nice lacing. Nose of chocolate, subtle coffee, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors exceed the nose with dark chocolate and roasted coffee on the front and middle with a touch of cola and roasted malts on the sides and a nice, light, herbal hop kick in the back cutting through the semi sweet malt and moderately deep roasted character. Good carbonation, lightly coating and satisfying for the stout drinker out there, and an easy find at Kroger's who carries these macro-micros. Nice
