3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
32 ounce screw capped bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear ruby red/brown color with not quite an inch light tan head. Head retention is decent enough, and thereís an OK amount of lacing. The brew smells like toffee, tea, and grainy malt. It tastes like grainy/bready malt, caramel, toffee, tea and some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and is easy to drink. Itís better than I thought it would be. $2.99 for a quart of this isnít too bad at all. For the price, itís certainly worth a try!

Can at home. Deep ruby brown pour. The aroma is roasty, light hops, raw grains. Light bodied, roasted malt, light coffee. Simple, dry and balanced finish. A brown ale. Highly drinkable. Underrated.

Poor unloved beer. Itís really not that bad. Would rather drink this than most mass market beers. Itís more Amber ale than porter for sure. But drinkable.

Out of jug: tastes.of slight malts smooth going down. There is nothing special about this brew but it's not terrible either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
32 oz growler from grocery outlet Redding CA. pourís a very pleasing dark reddish brown/ruby color with a decent 2 finger head of tan foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rich with roasted maltís, caramel, chocolate, coffee and biscuit. taste follows aroma, sweet and carmaly up front that turns into more chocolate and coffee with a nice clean earthy finish. mouth feel is lite to medium buddy with good carbonation. this is my first Black and Tan so I have no other examples to go by but I really like this beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a medium tan head, the beer is pretty much black, when you hold it up to the light you can get some brown and maroon hues, head dissipates quickly
Aroma: dark roasted grain, coffee,
Taste: very interesting, hints of dark malt but they are very subtle, a bitterness comes thru on the finish, not very sweet, hints of coffee
Palate: lively carbonation, light bitter aftertaste, light mouthfeel
Overall: kind of like a very watered down porter, not much from the pilsner except the mouthfeel, not bad but probably wouldn't get again

"a bit of an inbetween beer in quality and price (between macro & quality micro)...a little thin, roasted flavors but a little weakish. good beer as an intro to craft beer."
