Appearance: Dark, ruby red body, good clarity. Head was thick and white. Lacing and rings down the glass.

Smell: Light toastiness. No noticeable hop aroma.

Taste: Mild malt roastiness. Bright, metallic taste towards the end, then a soft, dry malt with a touch of bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery.

Overall: Drinkable and worth a repeat; an interesting idea that doesn't quite come through. Not as good as a straight-up porter or light ale or lager.

I was quite surprised with this beer. I did not expect much, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. First time was out of a bottle the other night, the head was foamy, the beer was smooth, it actually had a very good flavor to it. Quite dark in appearance (as the name implies) but taste is not overbearing. I was definitely sold.

Black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma of grain, some roasted notes. Thin body. Slightly sour taste with roasted and chocolate flavors in the background. Not complex, a little watery, but drinkable.

I respect Yuengling for their history but there are better choices.
