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.

I had most of the 946ml bottle at a barbecue in Newport Beach on 14th March 2014. Strange blend really, like a watered down Porter. Thin and dark in looks and texture, some roasted maltiness in both the nose and taste but not a beer I’d rush off and buy. Different but not really interesting. More like Mississippi Overflow than Mud.

Container made me see it, name made me purchase. Good beer, nothing too great and not for the price.

The bottle is awesome - too bad the taste wasn’t as impressive. It is lacking the quality of a porter, but much better then a pilsner. Mixture of caramel, bread, and coffee. Pours well with a nice head that disappears rather quickly. Not enough porter - not heavy enough, but too heavy for a pilsner. Taste is fair, almost as it smells but not rich enough to be a porter. Better tasting than a bad pilsner, but not good enough to be a porter. Overall, the bottle is worth the price paid - even without the beer.

Bottle (jug?). Medium sweet, light bitter taste, really watered-down. It even smells like a watery porter. The malty sweetness is there (though just o.k.), but without that salty, pungent hoppy bite from the pilsner I’m expecting, I’m sad. You get what you pay for. Better off getting yuengling’s black & tan. Off the record, will keep jug.

Pours clear black (red in bright sunlight) with a tan head. Aroma is roaated malt, licorice, and very light hops. Flavor is the same with an obvious lager taste. Tastes a little like if you had a "porter lite". Better than a regular light beer for sure.

Reimer96 (1491) - 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 (1536) - 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.
