COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 9, 2007
(Bottle 94,6 cl) Clear, warm, dark, amber golden with a dense, creamy, off-white laces. Lightly acidic, caramelish aroma. Thin and sloppy body with notes of sour/sweet caramel malt and some cardboard. Basically no bitterness. Not much of a Porter - not much of a beer really. Best thing about this is the fake "ceramic" quart bottle and then it’s cheap price of $3. 260307

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2003
Bottled. Nut brown. Yeasty nose. Some toffee and roastiness, but it's completely dominate by sharp, thin, metallic emptiness. An expensive drain pour!

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2001
Actually a brown and golden, made from porter and lager. But more to the point, it is really light and the lager taste kind of overwhelms the porter taste, which is actually quite scary. I only managed to finish half of that big jug before moving on to better things.
