Dacrza (494) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2013
DATE TASTED: December 19, 2013... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint...OCCASION: prep for The Desolation of Smaug with a review of another old favorite... APPEARANCE: as expected dark black with a dragon’s red eye when held to the light; head is two-fingered at the start; brown slush settles quickly; zero lacing.. AROMA: caramel, chocolate, and vanilla with some peaty notes--a rugged and ready mix of winter scents... PALATE: slick, medium-bodied; drinkable and soda-esque...TASTE: sugary slightly chocolaty and smoky, with some lactic presence too--a balanced, pleasant experience...OVERALL: like The Hobbit\, this beer doesn’t disappoint, despite repeated viewings--er, tastings--and though the critic in me knows bigger, bolder, more unique porters exist, I find Yuengling’s version more sessionable, less demanding and in line with the spirit of the genre--fortified ale for the working man...

Decent but not overly flavorful. This is the best I have had from Yuenglijng. A little bit sweet, the maltiness is a decent beer. Short aftertaste.

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - SEP 26, 2013
Nearly black with ruby highlights. Aroma of roast and caramel, nuts, and some chocolate. Taste of roast,some chalk, much drier than the aroma would suggest, also lighter body. A fine English-style porter. (Especially if, like me, you spill some as you pour it, so by the time you finish cleaning everything up, the beer warmed up a bit and lost some carbonation. rendering it more "English")

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Very dark brown, almost opaque, with a medium tan head. Soft roasty nose, with some coffee and mellow chocolate aroma. Clean light roasted malt flavors, lo-med bitterness, some earthiness and some coffee. Light-med body, some creaminess, short finish and quite balanced. OK.

Aroma of chocolate and coffee with dark fruit all subdued. Thin dark brown black in appearance little to no head. Easy to drink ver light porter, slight mocha, watery slightly, but really ok.

Daytonbeer (638) - Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours near black with tan head and some lacing. Aroma is chocolate malts and soy sauce. Taste is roasted malts, carmel, and toffee. Not bad.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with beige foamy head, fruity aroma, slightly bitter coffee beans taste which disappears into bland doughy taste quickly, low carbonation, sour abrupt finish. Disappointing porter.

Sammer (1028) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Taste is a diluted mix of black coffee, roasted nuts and medical tape. Not horrible, but I won’t be buying case loads of the stuff anytime soon.
