Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is bread, lager yeast. Appearance is dark mahogany with sparkle at edges of the glass, two finger-width foamy beige head with good retention and mild lacing. Taste is light flavor of roasted malts with more overpowering pedestrian lager flavor. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and abrupt finish. Overall, I was intrigued by the bready aroma and roasted malt flavor but then someone poured a Yuengling lager in it. There might be a decent porter in here somewhere--but this is way more tan than black. irishfist18 (16) - - JUN 11, 2016

Having just moved to S.C. from Northwest Washington State I have never heard of this brewing company. Come East and find out it’s the oldest in the nation. I found this Black and Tan on the shelf of the local BiLo and decided to give it a try. All I can say is, I’m very impressed. To think all this flavor and complexity for a fraction of the price of Guinness, or Murphy’s. I’m a buyer for life.

12 oz. Bottle. This is simply delicious. Porter meets Pilsner. Soft hints of caramel and grains. Tastes of caramel, coffee, chocolate & wheat. The pilsner aspect keeps the porter from giving that strong aftertaste that porters can give. Bravo yuengling!! Ara (3) - New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016 does not count
Light brown with reddish notes. Tasty and smooth body. Good mild aroma. Tastes more on a dark lager side.

Sampled at the source. Dark clear brown color, light tan head. Aroma of lightly burnt toast. Taste has subtle cocoa. Hoppy_Luke (2105) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
Amerykański, lekki porter. Barwa niemal czarna, pod światło trochę brązowa. Ładna, lekko przybrudzona piana. Aromat dość ubogi - nieco karmelu, słodyczy i paloności. W smaku trochę metaliczne i dość wodniste. Jest karmel, czekolada, ale stanowczo mało. Lekko kwaskowe. Zdecydowanie za mało ciała. Przeciętne. hauxe (1015) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
Rated from old notes, which summed things up as "decent mediocrity". The rich chocolate and off grainy notes give the impression of a decent porter mixed with a dubious lager. Seaberry (2) - Bro, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2016 does not count
The best 12 bottle case. Aroma is mild, ’Black’ isn’t exagerated, it’s a dark brew. Tastes of chocolate and other delicious dark things, with just a tiny alcoholic bite. My choice when buying a case. Larry_Duffman (618) - - MAR 9, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 This is a re-rate. I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee. The taste is caramel, a hint of chocolate, and roasty. It’s smooth and creamy. I always liked this one. It’s simple but well done.
