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.

This is a black-and-tan like Slayer is a bluegrass band. This beer is confused- it doesnít know what it wants to be. Sweet? Hoppy? This is high-priced ditch water.

Not the worst black and tan Iíve ever had but far from the best. When you want a b & t make your own.

I thought "black and tan in a bottle?" It struck my curiosity, boy was I disappointed. To everyone out there that hasnít tried it save your money. You canít bottle a black and tan, itís a work of art not a marketing scheme.

This was ok, came from a sampler. Watery and light on taste. Not something I wuld go after.

Better than the other Michelobís that I had tasted up to this point. Yuengling still has this beat but for a black and tan it is quite drinkable, with a mello flavor and dark coloraton.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 Poor excuse for a Black and Tan. No head. Poor color. it isnt even mixed.

Black and Tan. How can a beer in a bottle be a black and tan? It looks all to be one color. Therefore it is getting a "1" for appearance, for lying. I wouldnít even bother to rate it but I am cleaning up my A-B ratings, and maybe I can steer someone away from this fallacious brew.

Good tasting Michelob, but not their best. I would rate this as a lower end black & tan. Still a good beer, but if you expect a good b&t donít get this.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2004
This is a good, poor manís black and tan, decent dark color and smooth, with a good aftertaste. I donít know if it tastes exactly like a true black and tan, but then again itís a bottle of Michelob.

Well, this is better than regular Michelob. Actually, its a lot better. Taste is slight dark roasted malt, not much hop, too carbonated.
