Very disappointed!!! I have been drinking this beer for a very long time. I think 16 or maybe 18 years. I loved the old Black and Tan beer with the dark brown label. It never disappointed. It was very solid dark well made beer! However, the last time I bought the beer it has a brand new white label. The taste has been watered down and it does not taste like the old beer. It just has a hint of its old taste. Too much water it changed so much it is a different beer. What a shame! You can not fool me! I will not be buying it any more. I will take my business some other place. Plenty of good beers out there. Bif (2312) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Can. Pours a dark brown with fair head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, bit of vanilla and grain. taste of caramel, malt with bit of vanilla and grain. Mild bitterness and fairly clean finish. Moderate boy, smooth, bit of malty character but seems a bit watery. gripweed57 (2804) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Yuengling Half & Half Dark Beer". Clear reddish brown color topped by a light brown head. Subtle sweet malt aroma with a touch of graininess. Flavor is sweet toasted malt, but light. Lightly complex and flavorful. Brief sweet malt finish. Light bodied. chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2017
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 (250) - - 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 (1252) - 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. geologyguy (1651) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2017
