Decent, but nothing special here. Drinkable but uninteresting (besides the packaging). Mild flavor high carbo.

Bottle. Brown color with a laced tan head. Malt aroma and flavor is about all I could get, and even at that it was not very impressive. A bit thin and watery. Not a bad beer, but just doesn’t make a statement.

I liked this beer quite a bit...it’s my favorite black and tan, and the bottle is very unique. I like the taste as it’s chocalatey with some nuttiness as well as having a good pilsnerish aftertaste.

This stuff is cheap, and is really drinkable.

This nice jug/bottle could be dropped in the mud of a bayou swamp but the beer would be unharmed because of the protective crockware. Not sure that’s a good thing though, now that I’ve tasted the beer. Very thin and lagerish...with hints of sourness. Yuengling’s does the B&T better.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Re-Rate 10/18/02: The beer pours a clear incandesant dark ruby color, the head is modest, beige, the lace wraithish. Nose is malt, light hits of caramel. Front is malt, a tad sweet, the top thin, the finish is shilpit, minimal carbonation, nebishly hopped. Drinkable, and the bottle is ’Cute’, and I always find a ’Lady’ that wants the empties, a pleasure in its own right. Does not rank on my current 1000 beer master list.

Cool bottle. Sweet taste. Almost like a chocolate carmel flavor. Much thinner and lighter than I expected. I didn’t find it to be bitter as the description states. Less black than tan.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 Good foamy head. Dark amber colour. Decent aroma. Thinner than I expected. Sweeter too, almost like a cooler. Great bottle but now that I have an MT I’ll continue my search for the perfect beer elsewhere. The more I drank of the bottle the more the sweetness got in the way. Had a similar flavoured home brew (Pale Ale) the next day that was much better (dry without the sweetness).
