3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is kinda black and kinda brown. Imagine that. The head is beige in color, standing in at 1/4" and leaving a nice, thick sheet of lacing on the pint glass. The aroma brings chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. The flavor is pretty sweet, with a large chocolate presence. The beer is medium bodied and finishes dry. Overall, a decent beer.

I really enjoy Saranac’s Black and Tan, and I feel it is one of the superior ones to be found in Upstate NY.

Good weighty body, but has an after taste too close to cleaning products. Looks good, smells ok, taste surprisingly sub par

Originally reviewed: 5/30/08. Poured into a conical pint glass. Nice dark chocolate color with a good head. Dissipated to a nice ring with good lacing about mid way through. Smells of chocolate and malt. Nice creamy taste to it. Finished on the bitter side. I was impressed as I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would probably drink this again.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of roasted, pale, and caramel malts, plus a little bit of hops and some smokiness. Flavor about the same. A decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown with clear transparent edges. Thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of roasted malt and not much else. The flavor is roasted malt and is somewhat ashy. Dry finish with mild-moderate bitterness. Light-medium bodied.

bottled, thanks to skykob for lugging this back to plzen. anyways,dark brown with a small but lasting beige head; some prune and burnt porridge aroma; decent dry bitterness with some caramel; quite drinkable even if a tad simple
