COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cool looking bottle, but thatís about all thats going for it, thin even by a black and tan standard, over carbonated, slight hint of malt, basically a dark american lager in a jug

Well, the commercial descript is fairly accurate as to packaging. The one I had was rather light in body for what one would expect. Aromas were not that noticable, either. Flavor was light in roastiness and malt. Still, it is quaffable. But I wonít buy it.

Ah, the novelty of it all. There really is only one B&T and that is hard poured. That said. Dark brown color with a light tan head. Minimal aroma. Flavors of dark malted grains. Rather thin and bubbly. Just not a whole lot here.

Not much to this one besides the sleek bottle with the shape and wrapper disguising it as a cased brown jug. A slight hint of porter or stout in the nose and taste, but overall flanked by a tasteless and over-carbonated american standard style. I tried it for the novelty, I bought it at a grocery store in Cedar Rapids,IA but havenít seen it in the Chicago area.

First pre-made B&T I ever had, and given how it tasted, it was a while before I tried another. Highly carbonated. Not much flavor -- itís relatively balanced between hops and malt, but somewhat watery. Bad sign that the bottle is the best thing about this beer.
