12 ounce can poured into a standard nonic.
A: Pours a dark brown, a little light making it's way through if you look at it at an angle, with a big thick light brown head on top, 2 fingers worth, that dissipated quickly but a third of an inch's worth stuck around for the party.
S: Muted notes of coffee and a touch of corn sweetness.
T: Taste follows the nose. I've always found Yuengling Lager to be overly sweet, but the bitter roastiness of the Porter really helps balance it out. In addition to bringing much needed bitterness from the roast, it also gives the beer some *body* and *heft* to it.
M: Good carbonation. As eluded to in taste, it has a great *heft* to it in the mouth. Good thickness and richness to it. And a slightly dry, bitter-sweet finish gives it some staying power.
D/O: Certainly a drinkable, enjoyable beer. Can easily have 4-5 on a given Saturday. A touch too sweet for my liking, but it'll do, certainly in a pinch when options are limited.
Serving type: can

The color is a brilliant black with a bold regal color but the head just fizzled away in a mass of carbonation.
The nose is malty with some char. For the most part it's a light cocoa malt, some soy, with a caramel sweetness.
The flavors are a little weak and watery but I get prune, grapes, roasted malt, some char, roast, chocolate malt, marshmallow and a little ember.
The feel is extremely thin and watery but it certainly drinks easy.
Before I understood craft beer this was my "special" beer, funny how things change.
