COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Reimer96 (1347) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a moderate light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and some grassy hops. Flavor is roasted malts, caramel, grass, coffee and light chocolate. Overall the flavor is light and the body is really thin.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Aromas of mellow roast, light caramel, and subtle hops. Clear, dark ruby with a fading off-white head. Off-dry, metallic, malt-forward with mainly caramel flavors. Light-medium bodied, decently clean.

Roasty coffee and some dark berry notes. Light beige thin head and rusty body. Light berry flavors and a alc burnt rubber taste. Smooth but weird bitterness on the palate.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
1 pint - 473 ml glass-bottle
Schöner cremiger Schaum, im Glas leicht dunkelrot-braun. Malziger Geruch. Das Bier ist schön malzig, nicht zu süß, leicht trocken, Trotzdem aber doch etwas flach im Aroma, eine deutlich Wässrigkeit kommt hinzu und bleibt auch bis zum Nachgeschmack. Leichte Schoko-Note, sehr süffig. --> könnte ausgeprägter und tiefgehender sein...

Actually tastes like they did blend two beers, so kudos, especially for this price point. Some interesting malt in the Porter. I guess a decent lager in there. And unique packaging. This was a lot better a decade plus ago (though, that would have to do with me and not the beer), but kudos to them for making a successful product, even if it isn’t that great and has a low score.

BucannonXC5 (937) - 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 (906) - 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.
