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 won’t 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 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
