COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Black & Tan is a judicious melding of our classic irish stout with an all-malt german-style amber lager. The result is a brew that is hearty, pleasantly bitter and full of flavor, yet can be enjoyed bottle after bottle. Our unique Black & Tan has multiple flavor notes... you may enjoy counting them. Enjoy!

Bottle. Deep black> Lighter body then a stout. More like a shwartzbier. Pretty good but not my favorite

Good brew but not too stout. Pours a nice dark brown color with a good forming head. Not much aroma. little lacing. Good brew.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt and gas. Nice lookin dark mahogany with persistent head. The stout flavors (dry cocoa and roasted nut) work well with the lager malt and hops, but there is a vinegar-ish aftertaste that kinda ruins things. OK, but could be better.

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.

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.
