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.

This nice jug/bottle could be dropped in the mud of a bayou swamp but the beer would be unharmed because of the protective crockware. Not sure thats a good thing though, now that Ive tasted the beer. Very thin and lagerish...with hints of sourness. Yuenglings does the B&T better.

Re-Rate 10/18/02: The beer pours a clear incandesant dark ruby color, the head is modest, beige, the lace wraithish. Nose is malt, light hits of caramel. Front is malt, a tad sweet, the top thin, the finish is shilpit, minimal carbonation, nebishly hopped. Drinkable, and the bottle is Cute, and I always find a Lady that wants the empties, a pleasure in its own right. Does not rank on my current 1000 beer master list.

Cool bottle. Sweet taste. Almost like a chocolate carmel flavor. Much thinner and lighter than I expected. I didnt find it to be bitter as the description states. Less black than tan.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 Good foamy head. Dark amber colour. Decent aroma. Thinner than I expected. Sweeter too, almost like a cooler. Great bottle but now that I have an MT Ill continue my search for the perfect beer elsewhere. The more I drank of the bottle the more the sweetness got in the way. Had a similar flavoured home brew (Pale Ale) the next day that was much better (dry without the sweetness).

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But still nothing amazing. Definitely a cool jug if that sells you beer.

Big giant head that fades way down (I think the head size has to do with the glass im using. Several beers poured into the same glass have produced "monster" heads). The brews hue is reddish-brown. Smell some caramel and a bit of floral hoppyness as well. Creamy, caramelly taste. Sweetness fades away in the end to leave a bit of coffee flavor. But the fading sweetness and the coffee dont mix quite right for some reason. Still, its not a bad brew.
