Given to me by my homie Traphouse on the eve of the Chiefs domination of the Patriots at Arrowhead on Monday Night Football, which in case you didn't notice also featured us regaining the title of the Loudest Stadium in the World. Side poured from the can into the glass.

Appearance - Pours a very dark, porter-style brown to black with a light tan head of about one finger. Just what I would expect. Of course it is a Yuengling product, and we can't get that in Missouri, so there is a lot of hype surrounding it. But I must maintain a cool, objective head.

Smell - Some roasted malts and breads, not much other than that.

Taste - Pretty basic, although that is not necessarily a bad thing. Dark malts, breadiness, and a bit of smoky char are basically it for the flavors. But it is well balanced and tasty.

Mouthfeel - Thick and rich, finishes smooth and silky.

Overall - Worth a try, although I could pick 50 different products I would rather have than this if I were to take a trip to PA and bring back beer. Hell just standard Yuengling is better, although I think this is rated a bit low on this site. At least I got to watch the Chiefs take it to the Pats whilst drinking this brew.

From notes on 4/7/14

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Much darker than I thought. Had been drinking right from the bottle so I didn't realize this. Malty sweet aroma. Ok taste. Not much there. Kind of reminds me of a porter I made. Easy drinking, but not much to it.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, char, and slight cocoa powder aromas. Taste is much the same with roasted malt, grain, and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing very memorable in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.
