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.

Bought in place of cmb offerings. Not as bad as most of the reviews here. Pretty close to draught black and tans back in blighty. Not amazing, but no comparison to the yellow fizzies

Pours dark golden. Little aroma but nothing bad. Much lighter bodied than I expected. Taste is quite light, easy drinking beer. Not muddy at all...

Can. Pours a light brown color with a malty darker look and taste. Very easy drinking beer. Cool can makes it better

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!

scarletfire65 (1043) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

raiderrob67 (9) - Redding, California, USA - JAN 4, 2015 does not count
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.

airrick2003 (606) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 2, 2015
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"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."
