3.18/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Very pretty deep dark coffee color with a beige head that sticks around. Leaves a little lacing in the glass.

S: Very sweet dark caramelized sugar smell. Maple syrup, toasted marshmallow, some banana.

T: Then it drops flat! How can a beer that smells and looks so great taste so "blah"? Its nothing to write home about. Small amount of hops, lots of carmelized sugar with pretty well balanced sweetness, but thats about it. A slightly herbal flavor with some dark roasted coffee at the end.

M: Thin with light carbonation. Thinner than I expected.

O: It's actually pretty good for the price. I wanted a little more flavor out of the deal though. There wasn't a whole lot of "umph" to this beer, and I think I was really expecting a little more of that. Tasted more like a pilsner than a porter; like 70/30. I had hoped the ratio would have been opposite to that; 70% porter taste and 30% pilsner taste.

2.98/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A - Bottle looks like it's moonshine not beer, but when poured out, has a nice dark color to it.

S - Rather standard. Nothing that stands out, but still nothing offensive.

T - Pretty bland. Was expecting something better with the porter mix, but it was really just a dark lager.

M - Odd after taste. Made me want to gulp it quick.

O - For 3 bucks, the price can't be beat, but don't expect anything to high quality.

3.5/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

I know that 3.5's across the board seems like a very lame and generic review, but that is exactly what this beer is to me. A 3.5. Solid all around but not great anywhere.

It looks, smells, tastes and feels like a solid 3.5 out of 5.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Very tasteful beer for the value. Picked up a growler for 4 bucks and it looks cool! I love Black and Tans and this was perfect for saving the pouring out of two different beers. Great for when you want a Black and Tan at home without putting forth the effort to make it yourself.

3.96/5  rDev +27.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pour: pours a black brew with a tan head.

Smell: a light roasted smell

Look: comes in a cool looking bottle that would be good to fill up again.

Taste: roasted malts on the pallet and coffee on the after taste. With a mouthfell of a medium body brew.

Overall: this is a start up beer. Just a smooth easy drink that will be pleasing to the new beer drinker.
