12oz bottle, Bruery tulip, no discernable freshness date.
Dark red brown with yellow edges, like a dark rum, almost opaque, but not as dark as the majority of Porters. Initially a decent two finger light tan head forms, though it fades leaving a moderate-small ring and no lace.
The nose is fruity with classic English esters, dry from darker malts, a bit of licorice, and lager crispness.
Flavors tend toward the lighter side; lager-like cracker, dry, minimal sweetness.
There is plenty of carbonation, but it's not at lager levels. The body is also a bit thicker.
I'm not crazy about the idea of packaged Black and Tans, but I'm thankful that my dad brought this back from vacation for me. It's much like a watered down Porter, making me think that Yuengling's Porter straight must be a bit better.
