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

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
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.

Light wheat aroma Fast building but also fast dissipating head Amber brown color that is dark in the glass Taste is smooth and sweet No aftertaste, a great palate feel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

camay1997 (73) - patton, California, USA - SEP 10, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 Came out of an aluminium can that didn't open properly. Thick tan head on top of a dark amber/brown body. No haze. It smells earthy with woodland hops. It's a little blander than anticipated, but has good flavors. It's kind of like a weak porter (and it is..!) it'd be a great beer to introduce those afraid of darker beers to.

Kleg (379) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Quart jug bottle. Clear dark bronze pour with a large beige head and very good retention. Decent lacing. Nice nutty brown flavor. Smooth. Light body. A little thin mouthfeel for a porter. Unremarkable, but good.

gripweed57 (2793) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2017
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.

Sdaniel90 (1096) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 22, 2017
Quart bottle. Dark orange with a foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, spices. Medium to full bodied, soft fizzy carbonation. Thick and creamy. Medium sweet, lightly bitter. Watery and slightly boozy.

teamsale (294) - 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 doesn’t overstay its welcome. So-so.

Westy1130 (108) - 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).

screigh (749) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a cola brown. Very thin head with very little lacing. Sweet aroma. Thin mouth feel. A mild almost brown ale quality.

bigericsports (89) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Been seeing this at Trader Joe’s for years decided it was time to try it. 32oz Growlette poured into a pint glass. Clear red-brown color, small white head.Tastes of liquorice, raisins, malty, porter watered down by a pilsner. Taste of a weak brown ale
