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.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 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. Short crisp, dry finish. An excellent effort from Yuengling. Of course it's probably brewed using 60% rice and food coloring, but it provides a very enjoyable beer drinking experience.

The boys an Yuengling surprised me with this one. It was somewhat complex in taste and it goes down smooth.

The best beer Ive had from Yuengling to date. A well made porter, with a great taste (fruity, nutty, coffee mix), and a good aftertaste.

Ive tried other Yuengling beers such as Black and Tan, Premium and Lager, and I havent been overly impressed. This changed after I tried Porter. I was very pleasently surprised and decided to have a few! Wonderful mixture of flavors.

smoked/roasted coffee aromas, head diminishes to a thin film that has staying power. fairly sweet chocolate flavor..thin-medium body

Drinks lighter then it looks. Another great item from the oldest brewery in the US.

This is a purpose beer. This is the beer to get the person who insists that they dont like dark beer and you are trying to wean them from the fizzy yellow stuff that held so many of us for so long. Nothing offensive in this. A little sweet, some pleasant smokiness. Lager, only darker, and bigger flavor. Not at all bitter.

Not a great example of a porter, but the fact that its a lager puts it in a different class. On that basis, its not a bad beer, lacks hop and body to really compete.
