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 haven’t 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 -- it’s relatively balanced between hops and malt, but somewhat watery. Bad sign that the bottle is the best thing about this beer.

The bottle is cool - the beer is average. Had kind of a weird aroma that I can’t quite get a handle on, but the flavor was decent. A run-of-the-mill black & tan

A good premixed B&T, but nothing too impressive. For the price, I was satisfied but I’ve had better for less.

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-law’s 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
