COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Black & Tan is a judicious melding of our classic irish stout with an all-malt german-style amber lager. The result is a brew that is hearty, pleasantly bitter and full of flavor, yet can be enjoyed bottle after bottle. Our unique Black & Tan has multiple flavor notes... you may enjoy counting them. Enjoy!

Originally reviewed: 5/30/08. Poured into a conical pint glass. Nice dark chocolate color with a good head. Dissipated to a nice ring with good lacing about mid way through. Smells of chocolate and malt. Nice creamy taste to it. Finished on the bitter side. I was impressed as I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would probably drink this again.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of roasted, pale, and caramel malts, plus a little bit of hops and some smokiness. Flavor about the same. A decent beer.

beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown with clear transparent edges. Thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of roasted malt and not much else. The flavor is roasted malt and is somewhat ashy. Dry finish with mild-moderate bitterness. Light-medium bodied.

12 ounce bottle that pours a dark ruby brown color, almost looks like coke. Aromas of malt, grass, grain, and some dark fruit. Flavor is bland, almost cokish as well with roasted malt and grass comming through.

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Aroma- roasted malts, grain, metallics, faint chocolate Appearance- dark brown with lighter hues, thin head, slight lacing Taste- roasted notes, some malt backbone, porter qualities Palate- lighter bodied for a dark beer Overall- Drinkable but not special whatsoever. Better than most macro’s but not something I would ever seek out.

Pours a lovely dark reddish brown with almost no head. The aroma is comprised of roasted coffee and malt sweetness. Roasted coffee with hints of chocolate start off the flavor along with a nice hop flavor. Extremely easy to drink and very enjoyable.

BelgianBeerGal (4067) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Last bottle from the VA mixed pack. Pour looks a little light; kinda like Coke with a foamy off-white head but nice lacing. Aroma is light but has nice malt notes. The flavor is pretty thin though. You get some light bitterness and fullness from the malt but it is limited. Okay

3.3
bhensonb (15242) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle from a mixed box at the BevMo in Roseville, CA. Pours ruddy dark brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma is dark toasted malt with some cooked dark fruit undertone. Med body. Flavor is roast malt with some medium dark fruit. It has that burnt toast flavor in the aftertaste. It’s definitely a bitter drink. Malt sweet keeps popping up, but something (hop?) keeps bittering things up. Interesting drink.
