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.

DANEgerous' rating

DANEgerous (96) - Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Aroma: Nice somewhat burnt sent, still sweet an aromatic Appearance: Deep brown with amber highlights. Taste: Burnt cocoa, carded coffee that fades to an almost oddly strangely sweet finish Plate: Thin low on carbonation Overall: While it may lack in merits (in particular from the unique style it promises) it is still a beer that sets itself from the average and mundane, and for that it must be tried.

From old tasting notes. Dark reddish brown color. Bubbly beige head. Sour malt nose. Zesty toasted malt flavor hints at chocolate and allspice. Bittersweet hop finish. Nicely balanced.

teamsale (272) - Washington, USA - APR 19, 2017
Quart bottle received as a gift. Pours a cola color with a four finger beige head and splotchy lacing. Aroma is rust and raisin. Mouthfeel is extremely flat, minimal carbonation. Taste is a light porter, a bit earthy, on the sweet side. Leaves a decent coffee aftertaste that doesnt overstay its welcome. So-so.

Westy1130 (72) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2017
Picked it up just for the bottle design. Pours a dark caramel brown; starts with a decent head but quickly dissipates (even with a straight pour). Aroma: Slight hints of corn, grass and malt. Taste: very malty but extremely watered down (especially for a black & tan).

BeerBaby (91) - , Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Quart bottle from Austins Coffee house in Winter Park, Florida. Aroma is a wonderful yeasty beer aroma that I love. Large tan head and body is a dark amber. Mouth feel is a bit thin. Has a bit of that coffee flavor, but the Pilsner in it tends to water it down. Its an average beer in my opinion. Very much like your run of the mill big brewery type of beer. Most certainly nothing special.

Dark Amber to ruby-brown color with a thin off-white fizzy head. The aroma is slighty toasty and sweet grain. Light bodied with light toasted grain and moderate caramel. Cool keepsake jug that it comes in.

32 oz jug purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. I have literally walked past this beer hundreds of times in my lifetime. Im not sure what possessed me to finally purchase this, but the fact that it was $3.49 for 32oz is amazing. The aroma has mostly metallic notes with a little roasted maltiness. There is a bit of a sweet and floral character, too. Transparent mahogany color with a small to medium light tan head. Starts with well...a lightly sweet malt flavor. Light cardboard and oxidation in the middle. Finishes with a touch of metallic hop. This is extraordinarily bland and flavorless. I would re-classify this as a brown ale, however.
