Crappy brew with a great bottle. Used the bottle as a growler until the dumb bartender at dragonmead replaced my cap with one that didn’t fit.

Jug->English pint. Amber with huge frothy offwhite head. A: roasted malt, nuts. T: sweet malt, ash, spice, earth. Thin and watery. More of a brown ale than a porter. Eh.

Not as bad as I thought it would be. A very pleasant surprise but then I didn’t expect very much.

Jug onsale @ BevMax in Stamford. Coolest jug on the market. Surprisingly very watery for a black and tan...where’s the "mud"?

Klar och röd-cola färgad med begie-orange färgat skum. Doft: Röda äpplen, katrinplommon, örter. Smak: Jul kryddor, bränt socker, kanelbulle, sprit. Åker i slasken, tyvärr odrickbar.

1 quart bottle brought back to UK by Jo - thanks Jo - and shared at a BBQ. A deep red beer with a small tan head that soon disappeared. Sweet roasted aroma. Minimal carbonation, sweet taste, slightly sticky texture. Overall a beer enjoyed by us all.

32 oz bottle to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent amberish brown with off-white head. Smells and tastes doughy and malty with a nice, light and slightly snappy mouthfeel. Significantly better than the scores indicate, and a great value.

Reviewed straight out of the famous Mud jug. Not sure if I can seriously review a beer mix, but then again, Ive rated all the lime and chelada garbage, so I guess this is legit. Porter meets pilsner in the redneckiest servin’ vessel there is. Poured some out to reveal a muddy coloured pour with a creamy tan foam that bubbles on ad nauseum. Aroma is roast malts, mild coffee/cocoa sweetness. Taste is more of the same, a dominant roast malt character that eschews into a lightly hoppy bitterness (likely from Saaz notes in the pilsner part of the black and Tan). Overall a good brew and a nice sip, but has nothing on a true Black and Tan.

It was a gift from a good friend and waited for him to open it. I thought it was just a beer in a nice bottle, but it was a supringly nice beer. We enjoyed drinking it.

Bottle 1000 ml from Maruhn - Darmstadt (D). Black beer, fleeting foam. Roasted nose, coffee, earth, earthy hop. The body is thin, hints of cardboard, roasted malt, cigarette. There is toffy, but it’s sad, low tempting and without after-taste. With a sandwich, it’s ok. Low cost beer in a marketing packaging. Seen the look, I brought that in tasting, triumphing : No never, no more !
