Flat, taste doesn't stay with you very long. Many other porter options are better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can Poured clear but very dark brown, with a good head. Spotty foamy left on the glass. Aroma: nice (near 8), roasty smell with a touch of toffee and dark fruit. 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.

A basic, mostly bland beer. Smells like any macro you may come across. It is easily drinkable as itís pretty much like drinking a Michelob. It smells and tastes much like plain hops and water. The steam/diesel punk lover in me however, loves the design of the can. Pretty to look at, easily forgettable to the taste however.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Drinkable, but a very mediocre porter. I wish I could say that the flavors are there but just too weak, but really a lot of the flavors Iíd like to see arenít there. This is thin, with a bit of a dry roast finish, but otherwise unremarkable.

Purchased the beer in pint cans. Little over charged. Poured like a stout. clean on the palate but a bit one dimensional on the malt. Light coffee and vanilla follow. Needs more depth on the roast.

SKCwillie (27) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2014
The good: it isnít terrible for its price point. It has a similar color/transparency to pop. Carbonation was fine but a little weak. Slight coffee and chocolate taste with light caramel malt flavor finish. Very inoffensive and very unmemorable.

Opaque brown with a thin head cover, dots of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a bitter edge that comes along in the palate. Very simple and straightforward, but really very little going on.

obguthr (4084) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pounder: Walnut and charcoal nose, not strong. Mahogany, thick tan head, good lacing. Walnut on the front and back of the palate. Coffee in between, lightly sweet. Some tinniness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good transitions. Really pretty good and at a very good price. A good go to porter when youíre on a budget, and even if youíre not.

This was an okay beer. It paired well enough with the ice cream we were eating, though it lost its fizz pretty quickly. Just ok.

Pours a soda brown with a small khaki head that leave a bit of spotty lacing. Aroma of cocoa, toasty caramel malts, a touch of nuttiness. Taste is a fair amount of cocoa mixed with caramel and soap. A bit too bitter. Light-medium bodied with a thin, watery texture and average carbonation. Decent cocoa and malty finish that also is a bit bitter. Not bad, but nothing that really stands out either.
