I sampled this beer at the Matt's Brewing Company Tour and have since fallen in love with this beers very full flavor mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2003
I had sampled this beer out of mix of twelve beers. It was very good. It was rich. It was roa sty and malty. It was reddish and brown in color. It has a foamy brown head. It is a very well balanced black and tan. Raytailgater (105) - Rockledge, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2002

Wow! Good stuff! Nice deep color, fair foam, pretty lace. Probably the best B&T from a bottle I've experienced. PattiA (49) - Madison, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Deep, dark brown - almost black color. Head is foamy and a light brown color which lasted quite some time. Taste is very smooth and full-bodied. There are hints of coffee and chocolate along with fruit, caramel and butterscotch. Slightly bitter on the finish. It’s a great beer to accompany steaks and burgers on the grill!

Good balance. As you probably know drink this slightly chilled so that the nutty complex flavor can be enjoyed. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 29, 2008
Black and Tan is a blend of an Irish style stout and a German style all malt lager. It has a dark body with amber hues. The head is tan, thick, and it makes good lacing on my pint glass. Roasted malts, hops, caramel and toffee notes, fill your nose. On the tongue there are flavor notes of roasted malts, toast, espresso, and wild tart blackberries. The bitterness of the hops surrounds and balances everything nicely and leads to a slow bitter finish. It has a nice medium body and a creamy smooth mouth feel that makes it very enjoyable. happygils99 (7) - USA - AUG 2, 2001 does not count

(Bottle into English pint -- Sampled 2/12/10) Pours a very dark, almost pitch black color with a large tan head, parts of which remained throughout the glass. The nose immediately presents rich coffee and chocolate flavors with a slight hint of a grassy hops note. Full bodied with a mild carbonation, the drink was very pleasant, starting with the soft malt flavor of the stout, but finishing with a very sharp bite of the hops of the lager. A nice smooth drink.
