From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue I:

Not only is Yuengling Porter one of the originals in the US, they are one of the largest brewers of the style as well. Very dark and inviting, a few shades away from pitch black. Modest tan head crackles down to a short lace that does cling to the glass a bit. Sweet aroma of dark caramel, slightly charred wood and toasted cocoa beans. Creamy medium body has just enough crispness and smoothness to get by. Dry cocoa powder in the palate to start, mellow, but flavorful. Hint of caramel and a very mild burnt grain tone. Hop bitterness keeps the sweetness in check but never becomes a trait to notice, quick kiss of citric flavor middle to end. Tasty semi-dry choco-goodness in the finish.

Yeah, go ahead and call it middle of the road, but this is one of the most drinkable porters around, with a good dose of flavor to boot.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass 6/6/14

Pours very dark black with 1/8" of white foam that sits like a lid. Coffee, dark chocolate nose, lighter side. Taste is a very light body - thin - with a mild coffee grittiness. Short finish, hint of bitter but never really gets there. so so
