(Bottle). Recognizable Yuengling malt with deeper roasted flavor. A lighter styled Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone rjplumer (1151) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Light roasted chocolate aroma.Black bodied with a light tan thin head. Like the aroma it is modestly roasted chocolate malt tasting. Thin bodied with average carbonation. Mild sweetness in the background. A welcoming and drinkable Porter. Cunningham (8258) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
Almost black color with a light beige head. Roasted aroma. A deep sweet flavour with some roasted notes. Nah not my porter.hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2015
[Bottle in Manchester, England]
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark almost black brown, light brown head. Nose is mostly roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is consistent with nose, some roasted malts, some chocolate also some coffee. Enjoyable, drinkable but certainly not spectacular.

12 oz bottle.
Pours dark brown, nearly opaque. With a very good tan head.
Revising an old standard here and I’m not disappointed. Then again, I remember a marginally poor beer and this is decent.
It does lack flavor, seeming made with minimal malts for style. Maxbier (999) - Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Coffee brown with brown head. Roasty aroma. Slightly thin, roasty malt flavor. Earthy hop. Nothing offensive but a little bland. Jabah (509) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
In my first review I stated "It is what it is". But after trying it again for the 3rd-4th time it is growing on me. It’s actually a decent porter, especially for a mass produced non-microbrew. I don’t mind the regular Yuengling (especially compared to other domestics like Bud, Coors, etc.), so I decided to give it’s porter a try since I am a big fan of porters. This almost has the appearance of a stout....a nice dark brown near black. I would also say that this taste more like a mild stout rather than a porter. Sweet and caramely with a hint of chocolate from the oats. Compared to the regular Yuengling, I’d say that this is better. For the price it isn’t bad at all.

Black pour with a lasting tan head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla and vegetable. Flavor has chocolate and some decent roast overtones. Pretty high carbonation but decent mouthfeel. Lingering vanilla, oily finish. Pretty good for a macro and actually close stylistically. Needs more body and less carbonation but otherwise pretty decent. kingofthemtn (55) - - FEB 16, 2015
Rootbeer color with faint caramel aroma. Taste is very plain, no chocolate, no roast, no coffee, slight caramel. Palate is clean and smooth but thin. Beer #6 in a mixed pack of 6 dark beers. The weakest flavor of the bunch but I prefer it over the two that were very roasted/smokey. If you like this beer take a look at Saranac Black Forest.
