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.

The mud must have come from a septic system drain field.

32 oz jug purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. I have literally walked past this beer hundreds of times in my lifetime. Iím not sure what possessed me to finally purchase this, but the fact that it was $3.49 for 32oz is amazing. The aroma has mostly metallic notes with a little roasted maltiness. There is a bit of a sweet and floral character, too. Transparent mahogany color with a small to medium light tan head. Starts with well...a lightly sweet malt flavor. Light cardboard and oxidation in the middle. Finishes with a touch of metallic hop. This is extraordinarily bland and flavorless. I would re-classify this as a brown ale, however.

Not the best. Drinkable. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is like a wet paper bag. Finishes with a light hop bite.

Pour is a still and pale brown, not a lot going on with it. Smell is damp grains, light toffee, small coffee and roast but watered down. Taste follows with the watered down qualities. Iím not impressed

Originally rated on 6/14/08. Always wanted to try this interesting looking beer, I like the jug, but the beer is less interesting. Kinda bummed out that its not from mississippi, oh well. Pours a dark amber color with a thin light tan head, not much aroma however. The taste was very slightly metallic, but after that faded it was a little sweet with hints of toasted malts, slightly bitter. Overall its pretty average.

I always meant to try this one. I guess the jug looked cool. I poured it from the can into a pilsner glass. It pours a dark amber and red color with a beige head and little lacing. The aroma was caramel, toffee, and metallic. The taste was toffee, caramel, some bitterness, and metallic. This tasted a bit off.

Better then drinking Budweiser when your broke. Pours a dark color,Smell is of caramel and cheap porter. Watery and taste leaves quickly. At least you get a Pint of it. Iíve had worse porters then this..
