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.

Appearance is that of a bum jug (i.e. from the photo in the top left). I didn't bother pouring this into a glass, it's much more entertaining from the jug. Aroma is lightly chocolaty from the porter but dominated by DMS and plastic from the crappy lager, booo! Flavor is lightly smokey with a very lagerish quality to it. Not too bad porter qualities, just wish the "pilsener" they used would have been a little less asertive.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Rerated: Beer pours (in Chimay glass)a crystal clear dark brown-red liquid that light can penetrate with a medium (3/4 inch) amount of slightly dirty brown colored head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is of sour fruit/ sour apples, whiskey, and candy corn sweetness, noticibly "sickly". Flavor is sour, but not dry with a slight hoppy character with a noticible sickly sweet character that is unpleasant. Sampled at 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Flavor makes me think of old weak coffee mixed with a bland lager. Palate is both watery and fizzy. No one would ever drink this if it weren't for the unique packaging. Although not really functional as a jug, the thick bottle would make for a serious projectile in a pinch.

Oh my god this was just putrid and awful. Great packaging, but it literally tastes like it came out of the backwaters of the Mississippi. I would rather mix my own and just tried this awhile back on a whim, and will never make the same mistake again. Murky, watered down and bitter, more like a brown ale.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 9, 2003
Watery brown body with a decent, off-white head. Picture murky. Smell is of a normal lager, if I were blindfolded I'd never had expected there was anything dark about this beer. Taste was watery in the mouth, with sour, citrusy hops and weak amounts of toasted malt. End taste is water and a tiny amount of nutty chocolate. This a few notches below the Yeung-ling black and tan, which isn't very good either. Overall, not a bad beer for the inexperienced taster who doesn't expect big time flavor from everything.

Cool Jug. Watery flavor. Mix your own black and tans. fairly empty. Introduce newbies with this one.

Brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is lightly malt with notes of caramel, also floral and some yeast. Flavor is lightly sweet and weak. Watery finish. Nice jug though.

A nice jug of beer. It's smooth and finished nicely, a very good flavor. It's a pleasant black and tan, well worth the effort.

Here's my brief story about this beer, it first appeared while I was living in Mississippi. At the time, there were no legal brewing establishments in the state. The casinos in the state were lobbying to change the law. So when I saw this, I thought it may have been the first legal brew in the state, wrong! Anyway, the law was changed and the casinos started microbrews in some of them (the Grand in Biloxi had some good beers and I was there opening night, but nothing great)As far as this beer goes, smooth and not very complex. An okay beer in a neat "moonshine mini jug". Give me a real black and tan.

Much better than Michelob's black and tan, and better than I'd exoect from any bottled half-and-half. Smooth and light, interesting but not unpleasant flavor. Surprisingly good for the price.
