A combination of a porter (dark ale) and lager, this brand was introduced in early 1998. Chocolate, caramel and pale malts produce a rich, roasted flavor with a slight coffee note and a light, clean finish.

Boring and bland. Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma is bland. Taste is bland, but slightly roasted. Blah. The worst bottled black & tans I've had. It doesn't compare to Yuengling B&T.

Nice nutty aroma, great dark color. This black and tan really reminds me of nut brown ales mixed with coffee. Overall, pretty decent.

dark & disturbed burnt amber with a surprising head...fainty musty aroma with a little whisper of malt here and hops there..maybe a chocolate note floating about..there's some roastedness...some slight chocolate flavors...pretty damn water though...but for AB..not too shabby...lots of watery roasty notes..pretty damn drinkable

surprisingly good. I have much better, but I didn't expect half the flavor that this beer had. It's a decent beer, and cheap compared to a real black and tan.

another somewhat pleasant surprise, not great by any means, but good for the busch boys anyways

Not much of a black and tan. Light hop and malt flavor. Finishes light and clean.

2001 bottling. This murky beer pours the color of dull, dirty copper with a minimalist interpretation of a head. However, this small ring of tan foam sticks around for the entire party. The aroma is very vinous, with some sweet malt in the background and just a touch of hop spice. This is truly a delicious smelling beer. I could almost be happy with the bouquet alone. The initial sip is indescribeable. The second sip has a strong oak character to it which is very nutty in a way, but also somewhat smoky. The buttery, butterscotch flavors are subtle. This beer is at once intense and powerful yet subtle and cunning. The alcohol is noticeable, but not in a distrcting manner. A strong fruitiness is also present in this beer. Cherries come to mind, as well as chocolate and other sweet flavors. It seems that every sip reveals a new flavor. The mouthfeel is very smooth, with minimal aftertaste. The velvety mouthfeel greatly enhances botht he flavors and the overall experience of this beer.

Color is a purplish brown when held up to the light. Medium tan head fades fast. Light nutty malt aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic with a hint of cocoa. The finish is lightly hopped and somewhat dry. It's a "porter lite".

This has a richer taste than Amber Bock. A fine dark beer for those who prefer dark. It's very smooth.

This is a fairly decent macro beer, seriously, I’m not all that delusional, it’s really not bad stuff. ** The appearance was a nice muddy brown color, decent light brown head, and some lacing. Aroma is lacking, some chocolate malt, some light hops. The flavor is as the commercial descriptions states, caramel and chocolate notes, with a smooth silky palate. I actually kind of like this stuff.
