Not a total loss. Good poor with uber carbonation. Cool bottle. Poors brown, with nice malty aroma.
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.

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 (2717) - 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 (1086) - 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 (281) - 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.

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 BeerBaby (93) - , Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Quart bottle from Austin’s 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. It’s an average beer in my opinion. Very much like your run of the mill big brewery type of beer. Most certainly nothing special. PugUglyBrewer (740) - - NOV 24, 2016
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.
