A - Pretty dark... no light gets through. Creamy tan head. Good retention and lace.

S - Big roasted coffee and malt.

T - Thins, little watery. Smoky with charred malt.

M - Medium body, good carb. Leaves on a smoky not which I am not into much.

D - One was good enough to try.

Review from notes. Pours a dark cola like color into pint glass with a small quarter inch tan head on it. Smell is a mix of stale lager and dull malt and taste wise much of the same. Kinda what I expected it tastes like a literal mix of their lager and porter combined and frankly I'd reach for either of those before another sixer of this overall it's average and finishes clean and the price is right as always for Yuengling product. Honestly, black and tan's are best made and served by the drinker, a brewed version that combines the 2 perfectly I have yet to encounter. It's a balance that is best left to the drinker, much like adding salt or pepper to a dish everyone's palate is a little different. I'll stick to their porter.
