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.

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But still nothing amazing. Definitely a cool jug if that sells you beer.

Big giant head that fades way down (I think the head size has to do with the glass i’m using. Several beers poured into the same glass have produced "monster" heads). The brew’s hue is reddish-brown. Smell some caramel and a bit of floral hoppyness as well. Creamy, caramelly taste. Sweetness fades away in the end to leave a bit of coffee flavor. But the fading sweetness and the coffee don’t mix quite right for some reason. Still, it’s not a bad brew.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Cool jug! Boring beer. Bottle says ’black and tan’, but it doesn’t taste like any black and tan I’ve ever had. Like an ordinary "pale lager" with artificial caramel color and flavor added. Insipid.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 I expected something a little more flavorful, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

The color wasn’t as dark as I expected. the flavor had a hint of caramel and the finish was hoppy.

I had seen this on the shelves for a long time before drinking it. Never noticed the ’black and tan’ part, I had always assumed it was a thick stout so the pour was surprisingly light. Bitter, not very strong. They must have hopped the lager to hell compared with the stout to make it taste like this.

I too thought the bottle was cool, but the beer wasn’t that great. It is like a hoppy Black and Tan.

The jug caught my eye but that was about it. Not too much to it. Rather thin and bland for a stout.

This is a stout? Kind of watery and strongly lacking the strong malt flavor I expect from a stout. Fairly bitter, and a little bit sweet at first taste. Not bad, but not something to run out and buy.
