3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was reminded of this one when looking through my in-lawís beer can (and a few bottles!) collection the other day. I was leery of trying a pre-mixed Black and Tan, but had to go for it because of the bottle. Decent enough, it was more a novelty then something I would drink regularly. Good head and dark color, what I expected. A bit sweet and thick as one would expect.

(Black & Tan) The old-fashioned brown jug look is a hoot and the big mouth makes for convenient pouring. I love the 32 oz. size... the perfect bottle size. This dark, reddish-brown beer is a blend of porter and pilsener beers. It is high in carbonates. It is almost overly carbonated and the head does not sustain itself -- dissolving quickly in the glass. It is fizzy and acidic, a little sweet, and has a roasted and somewhat flowery caramel-and-chocolate nose. The flavor itself is nothing to rave over, in fact... this beer has little flavor at all.

Really bitter with a very heavy after taste. This one needs to be passed on, one was enough

UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 The bottle was good shit, the beer looked good dark with a creamy head and the taste was decent. I would rather take a Michelob Black & Tan over this anyday though.

Cool bottle, rather disappointing beer. When poured it looked like coke although that would be insulting coke to compare it to this so iíll call it pepsi. Flavor was not well balanced. Hints of porter sweetness as well as skunky vegetable flavors. Had a bitter finish as well. Not impressive, and a pain to finish one of those large bottles.

The bottle is very cool lookin... the kinda thing I wont be throwing away. The pour isnít very impressive at all, and the aroma is nothing to write home about. Itís got a decent flavor and an average palete.
