First pre-made B&T I ever had, and given how it tasted, it was a while before I tried another. Highly carbonated. Not much flavor -- it’s relatively balanced between hops and malt, but somewhat watery. Bad sign that the bottle is the best thing about this beer. naes66699 (18) - USA - APR 23, 2002
gnarly and i mean that in a bad way......................................... tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2002
The bottle is cool - the beer is average. Had kind of a weird aroma that I can’t quite get a handle on, but the flavor was decent. A run-of-the-mill black & tan uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2002
A good premixed B&T, but nothing too impressive. For the price, I was satisfied but I’ve had better for less. Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2002
I was reminded of this one when looking through my in-law’s beer can (and a few bottles!) collection the other day. I was leery of trying a pre-mixed Black and Tan, but had to go for it because of the bottle. Decent enough, it was more a novelty then something I would drink regularly. Good head and dark color, what I expected. A bit sweet and thick as one would expect.

(Black & Tan) The old-fashioned brown jug look is a hoot and the big mouth makes for convenient pouring. I love the 32 oz. size... the perfect bottle size. This dark, reddish-brown beer is a blend of porter and pilsener beers. It is high in carbonates. It is almost overly carbonated and the head does not sustain itself -- dissolving quickly in the glass. It is fizzy and acidic, a little sweet, and has a roasted and somewhat flowery caramel-and-chocolate nose. The flavor itself is nothing to rave over, in fact... this beer has little flavor at all. twocycle99 (61) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2002
Really bitter with a very heavy after taste. This one needs to be passed on, one was enough tapIluv99 (41) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2002

you have to like drinking out of a jug and also the taste is rather pleasing Skrip99 (82) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 11, 2002
Ya gotta love the bottle, that’s for sure. Pretty good tasting stuff, a little thick but it is ’Mud’, isn’t it?
