I had it from the bottle. 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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with small beige head. Aroma is both caramel and grain. Mostly caramel malt flavor here, and sweet. Slightly roasty in the finish. Better than expected.

America’s Oldest Brewery(1829)...this one is my favorite of the Yuengling Beers:) When I first had this in College on Draft, I realized quickly the difference between a good Beer and a bad one(Milwaukee Best aka The Beast:)lol

Bottle - drank straight from bottle so could not see color, definite mild roasty malt aroma and flavor, very porter like, not bad overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nothing fancy. porter meets lager. brew could be a bit bolder but is still nice to drink. Yuengling Porter is quite good and I am glad they made the mixture. very nice brew on a cold night.

Poured from bottle dark brown with a one finger head. Aromas of malt cracker and hint of coffee. Taste follows aroma.

Not bad. Light watery, slightly toasty, mild bitterness, crackery malts. It will do.

Can. Thanks Matt! Thin and watery, but mostly without flaws, only light light metallic. Other than that there are mostly malts with toasted, roasted and light coffeeish flavours. Quite simple and straight-forward but that is what they try to do.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/22/2015. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, light coffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light herbal/dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, light coffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light herbal, and toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean flavors with minimal yeast notes in the taste. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice black and tan style. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
