2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poors a delicious looking black with thin tan colored head. Smells faintly of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is not too overwhelming, with subtly roasted grains and very light hops. Not bad from a bottle.
12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear but very dark red-brown with a decent head that leaves little lacing. Smooth medium body with medium-light carbonation.
Decades ago, living in Pennsylvania, this was my go to cheap beer. I don’t think the quality has declined, but the competition sure has risen.
Overall: probably still the best brew from Yuengling, but certainly not worth seeking out. phranq (249) - - AUG 10, 2017

12 oz via bottle. Dark, creamy and smooth with notes of chocolate, mild caramel/toffee and light vanilla. Moderately sweet with minimal bitterness. A little thin on the palate. Not bad overall. Aggiebob (1178) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle. Black in color with a tan head that disipated quickly. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate, coffee and light toast notes. It is a bit watery but has a smooth finish.

Color of a cola, very dark. I am not a big fan of dark beers, but this one isn’t strong tasting. As a previous review said, it tastes part porter and part lager. Somewhat bitter but not overwhelming. Actually not a bad beer - recommended if you like porters.

12 ounce bottle. Deep brown in color. Aroma of roasted malt and raw dough. Taste the malt, not overwhelming. Very smooth with a hint of chocolate. Very nice porter. Quick3Beers (1264) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2016

Can at my parents house. It pours a dark chestnut color with a fizzy light tan head. The aroma has light cocoa powder, caramel, and toast. The flavor is more toasted with hints of cocoa powder, rice and corn adjusts. Light bodied with very light bitterness. Easy to drink. Not bad actually.
