The report was a dark brown color with Presley one finger of tan/light brown colored foam. The beer maintains a nice head. Beer has a light aroma, you can initially smell the Porter undertones. Undertones of dark chocolate/coffee.And is your taste is a little bitter as you would expect with a porter but drinks more like a premium beer. Very smooth with nice aftertaste of coffee.This is my go to off-the-shelf beer. Pricing is very reasonable for such a smooth drinking beer.

Very rich in flavor, it's bitter, but delicious. $5.99 for a 6 pack of bottles, Can't get better than that.

Pours a dark, nutty brown with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is nutted, toasted, biscuit, and pilsner malts. Flavor profile is biscuit, toast, nutted, and pilsner malts. Nice malty sweetness to it with a dry pilsner finish. Mouth feel is lighty fizzy and carbonated giving it a crisp feel. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a tasty, easy going beer that pours dark, but drinks rather light. Very refreshing.

Served in a 12oz shaker from a 12oz bottle.

This was the first dark beer I ever really liked. It's not to think and rich that you can only drink a couple, as a matter of fact it sits in the stomach like a lighter beer. I loved it when I first tried and I still love it today. Not to mention it was my first introduction to yuengling and it's been I beautiful relationship ever since.

There isn't a date listed on the bottle or the label.

Appearance: The beer has a nice dark brown body with a hint of red around the edges as light hits the glass. Although it is dark it has good visible clarity through the areas where light shows. The head looks fantastic. It has a medium-sized light tan head with a fluffy consistency. It looks great in a glass.

Aroma: There is a light bit of spicy hop aroma with a touch of toasted caramel.

Taste: It has a light bit of carbon and burnt, caramelized sugar flavor. There is some cereal grain flavor to the beer and it has a light herbal hop flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is thin and light bodied. It has a touch of bitterness to it. Slightly carbonic finish. Carbonation feels right for the beer.

Overall: It's a good beer that actually tastes like a black and tan. There is a light bit of carbon and bitterness to the beer from the porter, a bit of caramel flavor (presumably from both), and some cereal flavor from the lager. The body does feel pretty weak for the beer, even if you consider that it is a blend, and after a while the flavor starts to dull a bit. Other than that it is good. If you enjoy Yuengling Lager then I would recommend it because it tends to lean closer towards the lager than the porter. If you enjoy porters but want a bit of a lighter body then I would also recommend giving it a shot.
