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.

I’ve always thought these bottles were interesting so I finally picked one up. I feel a jug band in the making. Slightly dry, roasty notes and an inkling of a hop bite. Run of the mill.

Deep copper color with a lacing tan head. Light aroma. Not what I would expect for a Porter. Malty aroma. Caramely taste. Sweet too. Not too bad, but, still lacking heavily. Bought this bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, VA.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Sweet caramel licorice flavour, a little watery, very light on the hops. The more you

I personally didn’t think this was very bad at all. Coffee, Roasty, Smokey in the nose and flavor.

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Dark brwon colo, huge medium diminishing head. Sweet malt nose. Light malt taste - but only if you try hard to taste it

UNCCTF (584) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2004 A porter? Are you f-ing kidding me? It was amber colored! This has the characteristics of a decent pale, but definitely not a porter. Some decent carbonation. Additional appearance points for the sweet bottle.

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.

pivo (2685) - GERMANY - APR 13, 2004
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 (10683) - 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.
