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.

32 ounce screw capped bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear ruby red/brown color with not quite an inch light tan head. Head retention is decent enough, and thereís an OK amount of lacing. The brew smells like toffee, tea, and grainy malt. It tastes like grainy/bready malt, caramel, toffee, tea and some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and is easy to drink. Itís better than I thought it would be. $2.99 for a quart of this isnít too bad at all. For the price, itís certainly worth a try!

Can at home. Deep ruby brown pour. The aroma is roasty, light hops, raw grains. Light bodied, roasted malt, light coffee. Simple, dry and balanced finish. A brown ale. Highly drinkable. Underrated.

Poor unloved beer. Itís really not that bad. Would rather drink this than most mass market beers. Itís more Amber ale than porter for sure. But drinkable.

32 oz growler from grocery outlet Redding CA. pourís a very pleasing dark reddish brown/ruby color with a decent 2 finger head of tan foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rich with roasted maltís, caramel, chocolate, coffee and biscuit. taste follows aroma, sweet and carmaly up front that turns into more chocolate and coffee with a nice clean earthy finish. mouth feel is lite to medium buddy with good carbonation. this is my first Black and Tan so I have no other examples to go by but I really like this beer.

Appearance: pours with a medium tan head, the beer is pretty much black, when you hold it up to the light you can get some brown and maroon hues, head dissipates quickly Aroma: dark roasted grain, coffee, Taste: very interesting, hints of dark malt but they are very subtle, a bitterness comes thru on the finish, not very sweet, hints of coffee Palate: lively carbonation, light bitter aftertaste, light mouthfeel Overall: kind of like a very watered down porter, not much from the pilsner except the mouthfeel, not bad but probably wouldn't get again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"a bit of an inbetween beer in quality and price (between macro & quality micro)...a little thin, roasted flavors but a little weakish. good beer as an intro to craft beer."

Poured from the quart jug into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a brown to amber-grain color, was semi-clear with few bubbles, and had a small-to-average foamy tan head with modest retention, and decent cling and lacing. The beer had a roasty caramel malt aroma with notes of sugar and molasses, along with some earthy and grainy hops. It was a fairly sweet beer with malty caramel and bread flavors along with some mild earthy tones. Fairly wet and creamy on the palate with a watery, lighter mouthfeel and below average carbonation. Decent beer, and good delivery.

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.
