COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A combination of a porter (dark ale) and lager, this brand was introduced in early 1998. Chocolate, caramel and pale malts produce a rich, roasted flavor with a slight coffee note and a light, clean finish.

Bottle. Not too bad considering this is an anheuser-busch beer. Somewhat smooth but I’m not a porter fan.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with slightly tan head. Aromas of malt with hints of caramel. Taste follows aroma. Not bad for A-B, but would stop well short of labelling it Black & Tan.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2005
I’m sick of these AB attemps at hacking into the microbrew market. This crap has got to be Amber Bock with a different label and that can’t be a good thing.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Dark brown to black color. Aromas of malt and hints of caramel. Caramel and chocolate flavors, not bad for a A-B.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle. Medium brown with a small white head. Slight roasty aroma. Watery flavor of corn leavings This beer looks like a porter, but doesn’t taste like one. Avoid.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Not much mouthfeel from this one, but I have to give points for the effort to make a dark beer. Taste is somewhat tolerable, but then again Michelob is always a better choice than bud.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2005
At a weird bar in a strange place this was in the cooler (age may have an effect on rating!!--bottle cold but dusty). Not very tastey and still the American ale corn finish but a better option than the ultra.

demondrinker69 (33) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2005
It’s a real dark beer, I didn’t enjoy the taste to much. It’s not a good enough beer for me to go out and buy a six pack of.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2005
pours dark, notmuch for smell, body is thin and watery, it reminds me more of a brown ale rather than a porter. it is drinkable, but id never buy it again.

LioNiNoiL (8) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 26, 2005 does not count
good dark colour, thin-bodied for a Porter, faint aroma; roasted malt taste, clean bitter finish.
