Pours a dark mahogany with 2-3 mm cream head. Decent curtain of lacing and ring of carbonation.
Little to no aroma, perhaps slight nutty and char
Nutty, slight molasses, slight char, no off flavors.
Medium body,can be enjoyed in quantity
No reason to seek this out as there are many superior porters, but if this my be the best option if limited to convenience store stock.

It's supposedly 60% porter, but just don't get much porter taste, like none at all. Pretty bland overall. Among non-premium (inexpensive) porters, Yards is a lot better.

Had a couple bottles on Christmas. Best I can say is that it's not offensive. There's really not much to it. Not a lot of black, not a lot of tan. Trying to understand why Yuengling has such a dedicated customer base.

Decent beer for someone who wants to get into darker beers or would like something not as "harsh" as a full porter. Maybe thick is a better word to explain. It goes down smooth and from the bottle. The head is a dense foam but not very big. It's definitely a go to for me.

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - dark brown red, rich color with a medium foam head and moderate lacing on glass
Smell - roasted malt, grains, very minor coffee and sweetness.
Taste - Smooth almost velvety but carbonation is medium. Dark roasted malt, charred but not burnt. Caramel and coffee, perhaps a little chocolate. Hops and grains in the finish. Pretty good beer. Drinkable but still filling.

Well i like this beer a ton. I like porters, and stouts, and this has a robust flavor without being very heavy. Grade is an A-
