The best brew from the oldest brewery in the US. Dark and medium bodied, coffee after taste. I think ill go pick up a six pack of this fine brew jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2002
UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Deep red/brown. Thin head and lace. Earthy nose of malted barley, burning paper and others. Thinnish body, prickly carbonation, that same malted barley on the palate, burning paper, prune like sweetness, honey and other nuances. Fairly smooth finish. Not world class but damn respectable and pleasantly drinkable for a macro:) gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 One of my favorite beers. Rice brewed porter with a thick head and body as well. Great on tap but just as good in bottles. Being from pittsburgh a case costs 17.50 soo it is fairly inexpensive as well. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2017 Bottle... The aroma is moderately malty with a very pleasant roasted scent. A beautiful dark crimson hue with a small, tan head and good lacing. Excellent, malty and toasty flavors. Not sweet. Well balanced. Light bodied with a watery mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Short crisp, dry finish. An excellent effort from Yuengling. Of course it’s probably brewed using 60% rice and a bunch of food coloring, but it provides a very enjoyable beer drinking experience. Kevbo99 (149) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2002
The boys an Yuengling surprised me with this one. It was somewhat complex in taste and it goes down smooth.

The best beer I’ve had from Yuengling to date. A well made porter, with a great taste (fruity, nutty, coffee mix), and a good aftertaste. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - OCT 4, 2002
well made porter. dark with a frothy head.
roasted malt tsate with coffee and burnt fruit notes. some spiciness.
probably the best beer from yuengling. frpst9 (5) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2002 does not count
I’ve tried other Yuengling beers such as Black and Tan, Premium and Lager, and I haven’t been overly impressed. This changed after I tried Porter. I was very pleasently surprised and decided to have a few! Wonderful mixture of flavors. igneous1 (1535) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2002
smoked/roasted coffee aromas, head diminishes to a thin film that has staying power. fairly sweet chocolate flavor..thin-medium body Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Drinks lighter then it looks. Another great item from the oldest brewery in the US.
