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.

It had a deep crimson red color with good clarity when held up to light. On top is a tall and slow fading head. This head is light tan in color and hangs on well making some lacing on the glass as I drink. There is a light toasted malt with some caramel sweetness backed up with some herbal leafy hop notes. I also get a slight papery or a cardboard like oxidized presence in the nose. The flavor is a little light or thin but not overly so. I do pick up some toasted malt character with some light caramel like sweetness. Hops come on lightly and offer very little balance. There is only a slight herbal note towards the finish which is still mildly sweet with a slightly dull papery note. This rides in on a smooth and thinly textured body.

Lantratun oloinen ja makuinen. Hyvš Janojuoma. Hyvš yritys, lopputulos huono. Liian hieno pullo.

Clear semideep chestnut, with a thinnish light beige head. Bready toasty nose with a bit of cocoa and molasses, and toasted biscuit. Smooth semisweet flavour with a semi light body, featuring notes of toast and lagery biscuit with a wee nutty earthiness. A medium brown ale, basically. Nothing amazing here.

Poured a beautiful color brown. Wonderful aroma of malt and beer. Amazing sweet malty taste. Actually, this beer is not very good. Hard to get through the 1st glass.

Big olí bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a small-to-moderate head on it. There is a slight bit of roasting in the nose of this, but the smell is almost nonexistent. Taste is slightly roasty, but also has a bit of corn to it. Really tastes like mixing two pretty bad beers. Doesnít work.

Really not a big fan. Either I donít like Black and tans or this one just plain sucks. Itís certainly drinkable, but the thin body on a beer that should be thicker and sweeter is tough for me to swallow.... literally. Thereís also a cigarette quality.... not a good thing

32 oz jug from early backlog notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have lightly roasted malts, mild chocolate, some earthy notes, pretty thin for a porter, flavors are very mild. I will not revisit this.
