First of all, shouldn’t a real black and tan separate in the glass? The beer pours a dark brown into the glass, with a tan head. Lots of roasted malt and nuttiness in the aroma. The flavour is similar. Not a lot of traditional porter flavours to be found here.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not an overly powerful aroma that has a hint of caramel flavoring. The head disappeared quickly after the pour. The color is a dark brown with a reddish tint. It has an okay taste. Nothing spectacular.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 341 ml from Drinks of the World - Bern (CH). Very dark brown, short yellowish head. Fruity malted aromas, coffee, acidulity. The mouth is slight, fluid, soft and toffy without excess, with roasted, coffee, grain, point of vanilla, grenadione and acidity. Dry and chalky in finale. So far from the Porter’s class.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Drink Beer.. Help People tasting party. Color is deep amber with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma is a light roasted grain scent. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is weak, a bit of sweet roasted malt shows then a clean after taste. Overall its bland and weak, I will never understand why someone would try to brew a black and tan.

Pours blackish coppery red brown with a quickly receding tan head. Aroma is weak but malty. Slightly roasted scents. Taste follows aroma. Weak but great flavor. Palate is thin. But overall a decent beer. This would make a good bridge beer to cross from lite beer into the craft world.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium to dark brown with not much aroma to speak of other than a slight hint of roasted malt. Taste follows the nose with perhaps a feint caramel flavor. Thin bodied with above average carbonation. Better than most macros but don’t expect anything special. I wanted something to have while on vacation in between the good stuff and this suits my needs. Very easy to drink.
