Eerily similar to Yuengling Porter, some coffee and cocoa, again though, kinda thin for my liking. This tastes like a brewpub porter.

I hate to be harsh, but this beer just doesn't offer much. Slight roasted malt flavor, slightly sweet.

A chugger, pure and simple, but some spicy bite appears when paired with food. Plain, mild, but not at all bad. A great training wheels beer.

I know some would think that this takes two decent brews and ruins them via a premix. Well I do not agree. This is a nice drinkable beer. Has the best of the porter with its color and roasty maltiness along with a nice bitterness. Smooth. I dont think Westy has anything to worry about here but it is a good effort.

Draft. Good head, very dark with some roasty notes. Nice, malty, roasty notes. Had more body than I had remembered, quite decent premix overall.

Sharp and refreshing on the tongue. Light roastiness with mild hop nose. Very drinkable.

Forms a medium-size head and is a smooth, yet thin beer with the roasty taste I love about Porters/Black and Tans. Awesome brew considering my parents paid $4 for a sixer.

i really enjoyed this beer. so far, it's my favorite of this brand. very smooth with a slight hoppiness. i'll definitely be revisting this balck and tan.

For a pre-mixed black and tan, this is very smooth and easy to drink. Better than their straight lagers.

I hadn't visited a Black and Tan beer in some time--I'd had only the Saranac since I became a beer geek--and this was interesting. There is a notable maltiness here, of course, and a good blossoming of chocolate flavor. Like a schwarzbier, there is a thinness of body and a bit of fizz, with a decent head. Clear, dark, with a reddish hue. It is enjoyable for its approaches to porter flavors, but there is a constant reminder of its "tan" component that undermines it with unenticing dimensions. Oh well, another free bottle given to me at a Pennsylvania convention!
