3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a dark brown to black with a grey head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is fruity, roasty, leathery, ashy, and bready. The taste is mostly sweet with a bready, caramel note coming through toward the back end. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Best when it is warm, like any good stout! Let one get cold in the fridge and it lost its rich flavor... Let it warm up... Ahh great beer!

Om man häver i sig tillräckligt många av den här ölen kan den nog slita sig till en arbetsseger och vinna ens gunst strax innan man går i däck. På mer nykter kaluv avancerar den inte längre än till mittlinjen.

Pretty run of the mill stout. Not a very strong aroma, but there is some roasted malt presence. Flavor is rather smooth, mild hop bitterness and some roasted malts, but nothing really standing out.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a dark brown with tan colored head. Mild roasted malts and some coffee. The body is a medium light. Nothing really to chew on. Get some sweetness in the flavor but its just pretty bland. Roasted malt is the biggest flavor. Now it is very smooth that I can say.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance has a clear very, very dark reddish brown color with a large off-white head, and the aroma is a fairly simple fusion of roasted malts and vanilla. The taste is quite similar to a Guinness with its mild umami, slight sweetness, and a touch of sourness, but the palate is more intriguing than a Guinness due to the medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a malty finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a minimal, tan head. The aroma has sweet chocolate with light fig and plum. It has a medium body with slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is very sweet from start to finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Very light body for a stout. Looks rather watery for a stout, no head, no lacing, and minimal aroma. Taste is very light chocolate and short lived.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. Clear mahogany with a small spit of film that lasts. Nose is rusty chocolate and caramel cola. Tastes of lightly charred buttered popcorn, caramel and soured chocolate milk. Best part is the finish that shows some mild cocoa and char. Light-medium body is even sweeter than a sweet stout and has a medium-high carbonation that flares up in the mouth. Another loser from this outfit that relies on re-packaging crap beer in craft beer-wannabe labels. Thank God for mixed sixers or else I would have had to drain-pour FIVE and a half beers.
