Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) "Blach & tan", back here we call it "Half & half" - both terms cover the same blend of half Lager, half Porter. I suppose this is not blended but brewed as a Dark Lager more akin to a Czech such or a German Schwarzbier. Quite dark, lightly toasted malts with a pronounced, crisp dryness and some bitterness. Light notes of coffee and a touch of chocolate and...vanilla? Actually quite good.

(12oz can, courtesy of JJFoodie) Pours a clear brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of maple, mustiness, roasted malt, and herbs. Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, herbs, earth, and cocoa.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 8, 2002
Eminently drinkable beer - perfect for when you’re hanging out and aren’t actively ’tasting’ the beer. As noted by others, surprisingly good black and tan for a premix. The mild caramel maltiness balances the bitterness nicely. Some bitterness, but not enough to scare away anyone.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. Dark roasted burnt malt with a treacle hint. Near medium body with lightly foamy carbonation. Flavor is not strong. Burnt/roast malt. Which seems to provide bitter in the finish. Decent drink.

12oz bottle-pours a tan head with brown color. Aroma is choclate malt. Taste follows, roasty. Nice medium bodied beer. OK carbonation.

brokensail (10961) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
A: The pour is a dark, yet clear, mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. S: A bit of toasty and somewhat roasted malts and grains along with a mild sweetness. The lager portion seems to ruin the nose, to be honest. T: More of the same from the flavor. Just a mild roasted flavor and lots of grainy sweetness. There’s sort of a weird "off" flavor that I can’t quite identify either, maybe a bit of metal? M: Light in body with far too much carbonation to be enjoyable. D: Pretty "bleh" offering here. The adjunct lager is really overdone in this beer and just detracts from any part of it that could be enjoyable.

Dark brown with a moka head. Light chocolate and grassy aroma. Sweet malt and boiled corn, no chocolate and light caramel. Light and boring.
