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 doesn’t have anything really standing out about it. Average...

Holds the appearance of cola color in the glass. Light caramel and roast characters on the nose. A smidgen of dried fig and light chocolate malt in the taste. A very lightweight Porter. mjg74 (3134) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Can from Grocery Outlet. Sweet and roasty up front. Strong tootsie roll flavors. Some milk sugars and a touch of roast in the finish. Decent porter. Easy sipping. Good and clean. unclefrito62 (303) - Stow, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2016
This looks like a porter, deep brown in color. Not a heavy porter smell. Dose not taste heavy like some porters missing a sweetness I like in porters. Light on the palate’ Overall an average porter that is very drinkable User134089 (1644) - - APR 8, 2016
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)

From a bottle- aroma is that of caramel malt and a hint of spices, taste is sweet and goes from a sweet caramel flavor to a coffee and malt taste. Good beer for easy drinking. scoth (687) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours clear dark brown with a lasting thin beige head. Aromas of coffee, toast, hay, very malty. Medium-light body, velvety, good carbonation. Lightly sweet, gentle bitterness. Feels more like a dark lager than a porter. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2015
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. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.25 A: Clear dark brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and glass covering lacing is left.
3.75 S: This smells a lot like amaretto and hazelnut coffee. Fairly sweet and roasty with caramel and toastiness. Smells quite nice, but doesn’t have a lot of depth.
3.25 T: The taste is good, but like the nose it lacks depth. Roasty with hints of chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, and coffee.
2.75 M: Lighter body. The carbonation is a bit aggressive, but it’s okay. Lacking body and creaminess.
3.0 D: It’s okay, but nothing to go crazy over.
