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.

Bottle/jug thing. Pours muddy brown. Nose and taste of roast black malt, cocoa, light pine, dough and toast. Lighter medium body.

zacgillbanks (1872) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle from 535 Liquors, 3260 Vineland Road, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a very dark brown beer that pours with a thin tan head. It has milk chocolate flavours with roasted notes and bitterness on the finish. Unfortunately it has a thin body and only light flavours which must be due to the Pilsner blended in.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Jug->Nonic. 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.

Grumbo (493) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
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.
