COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dating back to 18th century England, the custom of blending pale and dark beers has kept the "Black & Tan" a favorite of experienced beer drinkers for centuries. Our famous recipe combines a robust English Porter with a fine Continental Pilsner, preserving the character of each, while creating the classic taste of the legendary "Black & Tan." In true American style, we bring you the best of both beers as they meet in Mississippi Mud.

In my published database, this offering has the distinction of being the lowest-scoring beer (?). Nothing redeeming in it. First, you cannot bottle a black & tan, and second, no black and tan that i have ever been served is comprised of porter and pils. Maybe it was intended for rinsing your hair after a shampoo.

For some reason I was as put off by this beer as I expected to be. Maybe that is why I'm rating it higher than its average? Slightly woody ose, clear brown color, tall foamy head. Pours thin and has a thin body. Quick sweet body with a light syrup taste and some toasted malt. Slighlty dry and tangy at the end, but not bitter. OK balance.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2004
Translucent brown color, very light bodied for a black and tan. Uninteresting and bland, cardboard aftertaste.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
Very unique bottle. Light brown/black in color. Tastes of roastiness, malt, and hops. More watery than a porter, but still maltier and with a lot more body than a pils. Has some scotch ale qualities. Fairly complex and refreshing.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 Nice smooth taste. Every so often I get the roasted porter kick and a hint of chocolate. Not bad.

A good brew. Nice colour, nice taste. I enjoy the appearance and flavour. A nice appetizer beer or dessert beer. Enjoy!

Dark brown beer. Bubbly off white head. My wife says it smells like Budweiser. Kind of, it is a bit more malty. Slight chocolate taste with a really bad metallic (iron)flavor. There is some other odd flavor as well. Odd to say the least. Not my thing.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 I really like the bottle, genious marketing. The beer, while nectar-y and sweet, could use some improvement. This would definately be better classified as a porter. I cant say I didnt enjoy it though...

Deep claret color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is slightly malty and sweet. A light bodied Porter. Malts are caramel and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Tastes a little like a slightly flat coke with a dry finish. It not bad, Ive had a lot worse, but there really isnt anything to this beer. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. I imagine that the bottle is a bigger attraction than the beer inside.
