Grainy and burnt flavors from the porter mix with the base Yuengling that just doesn't hold up to the porter flavors. A bit metallic with some cocoa, drinkable, but not the easiest to get through.

I like the darker beer and this was great. Strong beer flavor. It wasn't that heavy either.

There is nothing really special about this one. the lager is so much better.

A - Nice moderate tan head over a dark brown, opaque body. Lacing is major.

S - Grains and roast notes. Pretty subdued.

T - Following the nose, with caramel and meal, mingling with a bitter roast bite in the middle, resolving to a sweeter, doughy element at the end.

M - Light and abrasive. Not great.

O - Not a favorite. Too light for a good porter.

Liked this as a nice cheap every-day type beer as I always enjoyed black and tans. Then made the mistake of drinking one after having some very good IPA's. It's exactly what the ratings give it, an ok alternative to a black n tan draft.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark brown with a thick beige head that dissipates to a lacing.

Smell: Roasted malt, some chocolate. Smells mostly like a porter.

Taste: Like the smell. Roasted malt with caramel and chocolate. A hint of the yuengling lager.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, but very carbonated.

Overall: A nice change from the typical yuengling beer. I would have it again.

this is really a go to beer for me when I need a break from hi octane craft brews. It's not the greatest beer in the world, however, for an everyday affordable beer this is definitely one of my favorites.
