Dating back to 18th century England, the custom of blending pale and dark beers has kept the "Black & Tan" a favorite of experienced beer drinkers for centuries. Our famous recipe combines a robust English Porter with a fine Continental Pilsner, preserving the character of each, while creating the classic taste of the legendary "Black & Tan." In true American style, we bring you the best of both beers as they meet in Mississippi Mud.

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Type: 1-Quart bottle Glass: Stone Ruination IPA glass From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.99 Purchased: Jan. 4, 2014 Consumed: Jan. 9, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a mahogany brown clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki gray head. Poor foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Poor retention on the top. Smelled black coffee, roasty nuts, dark chocolate, smoky woodfire and some toffee. Tasted a lot mellower than the smell. First though was what the hell is this? Got black licorice, smoky woodfire, crayon, nuts and faint coffee. Big drop off from the nose. Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. This beer doesn’t quite fit the title. I think Mississippi dirt might be more appropriate.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
This black and tan poured a deep amber/red colour with a nice, tan coloured head with a little lacing. Scents include smoke, fruit juice, caramel malt and dough. First swig was quite watery with flavours of smoke, caramel and toast. Finish is smokey with a very mild bitterness flavor that doesn’t go anywhere.

Caramel colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of green tomato, vegetables, malts and caramel. Sweet flavour, caramel and nuts. Sweet finish, caramel. Bit disappointing, was expecting more.

Zzt’13, ten eerste een leuke fles, bruine heldere kleur. Ruikt vooral naar mout en een beetje kruidig. Smaakt zoet, mout, drop, droog, waterig.
