2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with an off white head. Some chocolate and nutty aromas but faint. The taste is a bit light for a porter but does have some bitterness that seems to lessen the sweetness a good bit. Not bad, and it is drinkable, but it doesnít have anything really standing out about it. Average...

12 ounce bottle from Bottle & Wedge, Huntington. Pours a dark red brown color with a thin fizzy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of green apple and mild chocolate. The taste is cocoa, green apple. Thin bodied. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12/23/2013: Dieselpunk Porter... Iím surprised that this beer is rated to low. Okay, itís not awesome, but itís still pretty decent, especially at the inexpensive print point of $5.49/4-pack on sale! This porter is dry, roasty, and has a nice mineral characteristic; thereís also a twist of sweet licorice in the middle along with some cocoa powder; it bounces between lightly sweet and nicely dry. The body might be a touch thin, but that along with the lighter flavors makes this beer go down easily and not end up feeling heavy and overly filling. I like and and feel that it pairs nicely with BBQ and other meals. 16 pint can (6.5% ALC/VOL) from Krogerís in Waterville, Ohio. Rating #25 for this beer.

This is a decent porter. Itís nothing earth shattering. Pours dark and is translucent. Itís not real bitter. Has a decent taste but nothing unique. If this is your first porter, itís a decent start but there are better porters out there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The appearance has a clear very dark reddish brown color with a large off-white head that fades fairly quickly, and the aroma is a single-faceted scent of roasted malts. The taste is a bit disappointing due to the lack of robustness seen through the slight sourness, touch of sweetness, and touch of umami; furthermore, the palate combines thin and slick texture, average carbonation, medium body, and a malty finish, the last of which is the only redeeming factor of this beer when itís in your mouth.

I like this beer for the price. Connoisseurs will not rank this among "best" beers, but if you want a nice, malty porter for a Kroger price, this is this way to go.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark Porter with a large creamy head. The aroma is flat for the most part and the taste and palate leaves something to be desired.

Aroma is dark malts, medium sweetness and toffee/caramel. The flavor is dark malts, fruit/berries and a very off/chemical flavor in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much in the way of aroma or taste, especially for a porter. It had a nice tan head, and a rich dark brown color.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
1 pint can. It pours a dark reddish brown with a large tan head. It has a roasted and coffee aroma along with a metallic can aroma. It has a chocolate, roasted and coffee flavor but the body is way to thin and there is a bit of a sour aftertaste. Although this beer is drinkable I wouldnít buy it again and hold little hope that other beers by this brewery are much better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear darker brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is a little roasty and slightly sweet from some caramel tones coming through. Taste seems a little sour to me, with only a little roasting coming through in the taste. Not a particularly good porter.
