Strong aroma of sweet malt, caramelized molasses, fades quickly. Ebony black in color, tan head disappears quickly. Sweetness in front is very pungent. Sweet chocolate, malt, and hints of toffee at the end. Finishes fairly smooth for a porter, not much bite, a bit watery. Average.

This was a gift from a friend. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma doesnít have that typical porter smell. It really smells like a Yuengling Lager, which is really weird. It has a bitter taste at first, roasted malt and just slight coffee notes. Thereís no real bitter backend, as it gets smoother all the way down. It also seems to have that patented Yuengling Lager aftertaste. Not what I expected. Itís decent but not great.

Looking for a six pack and this was cold. Unfortunately...that was itís best quality. Been a long time since I bought a non-craft beer and this beer was nice enough to remind me why thatís true. Cheap...cold...thatís about that.

Pours dark brown. Nose is is mild roasty and chocolate malts. The taste though does possess a really pleasant and prominent chocolatey, toasty and lightly crackery malt character. Really, not a bad beer especially for a cold tall boy at $1.25.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Pleasant dark roast aroma & flavor. Very smooth with a hint of the classic yuengling lager trashy after taste but not bad. Reminds me of michelob amber bock. Great in small doses but so hard for me to drink more than one of these, the drinkability just isnít there for me.
