My wife bought a quart bottle of this because of the size, cost, and because it said black and tan (fond memories of mixing a stout w/ a lager at bar). She loved it. Myself ... I found it kind of bland and relatively tasteless. The stronger more complex craft beers are starting to spoil me.
a: light brown
s: weak smell, slight smell of malt. didn't really notice any hops
t: very weak, very bland. think I would have trouble distinguishing between this beer and a bud lite in a blind taste test.
mf: overly carbonated for my preferences
overall: cool container. would look neat at a party. mild taste. would drink again (no offending tastes or smells), but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

An inexpensive take on an under-appreciated tradition. Combining the rich flavors of a dark porter with the light smoothness of pilsner this pre-mixed black and tan is great for parties (in no small part because of the awesome whiskey jug style bottle) or to introduce more serious beers to friends and family who think they do not like "dark beer." However, when the novelty wears off the beer fails to impress.
Color and mouthfeel reflect the unique mixture, dark yet clear with a "thin" feel that seems totally foreign to the reasonably complex flavor.
Slight sweetness in the aroma but taste is dominated by earthy tones with a fairly obvious tobacco note. As my friend Matthew stated, "It tastes like the inside of a cigar box." Very low carbonation. As stated in other reviews finish is "abrupt," but not quite crisp.
Overall a novel, if not altogether thrilling experience.
