4.13/5 rDev +3.5%

The Sly Fox black and tan is traditionally the Phoenix Pale Ale on bottom, and O'Reillys Irish Stout on top. I however like it done differently, where I put Route 113 IPA on the bottom and O'Reilly on top. Poured from CO2 on the 113, and nitrogen on the O'Reilly at the brewpub.
A: Wow, does this look sexy. A black color on the top half of the beer with the reddish brown color of the Route 113 on the bottom. A one finger off white head tops the beer. Full glass lacing.
S: Dark roasted malts up front with coffee, licorice and some dark chocolate flavors. The Route 113 is buried under the stout so only a faint hop nose is detected.
T: I love this beer. Dark roasted malts with coffee and dark chocolate flavors that mix with the caramel sweet and hoppy Route 113. Hops are earthy and piney mixed in with the dark roasted malts as the beer melds together. Great mix of the two. Finish is bitter and lasting but with hints of chocolate and coffee lingering.
M: Creamy and bitter at the same time, but very coating and full. Minimal if any alcohol detected.
D: Fairly high, they are very enjoyable and the alcohol is fairly low.
Overall a very different interpretation of a black and tan that I urge anyone who visits the brew pub to try. You won't be disappointed.

A mix of Phoenix Pale Ale and O'Reilly's Irish Stout. The combination ends up a clear chestnut colour and came topped with a thin, light tan head. Good retention with some lacing throughout. The aroma was basically roasted barley and grapefruit hoppiness, kind of a weird combo, but appealing. Solid bitterness with light caramel, some roast and burnt character, and lingering citrus. Medium/light body and carbonation, fairly dry. This really works. The flavours meld quite well, producing a highly drinkable beer.
