Sampled on April 7, 2012 at the annual Keene, NH Beerfest, a fundraiser for youth hockey. This had a lovely mahogany amber brown pour with ruby red highlights. the nose is entirely sweet with caramel malts and a little cocoa due to the Porter influence. The body was medium. The taste was bountiful with sweet caramel malts but the Porter half of this Black & Tan is not quite as evident in the flavor. Still, a decent, likable beer.

I've always liked Berkshire Brewing Company, they've made some great beers, but when I see them, this is always the one I go for. The appearance is a little thin, mostly a dark-ish brown with a light head but the smell disproves that and shows the beer to have nice hop and malt in it. The taste is a great balance of light flavor in the beginning with sweet malt and almost coffee flavors on the back of the tongue. For a company that makes a lot of good stuff, there always seems to be one or two of these guys in the fridge with everything else.
