32oz growler shaped bottle. Received as a gift.
Pours a dark reddish brown, decent clarity with a nice full off white head with pretty good retention and decent lace.
Aroma is somewhat bland. Light roast, fruity esters, and hints of strange meat funk. Some lageriness noticeable as well.
TAste is somewhat decent for the style. Both beers can be noticed but the ending result makes it come off as a light porter. Light roasted malt, toasted malt with hints of berry and grape like fruits. As it warms some caramel and brown sugar take over. Finishes with some lager qualities.
Light feel, light finish, but definatly not watery. Easy drinker.
Overall, this is a pretty good example of a black and tan but this style is longing for some expierimentation by the bigger, better breweries. The bottom line is that this is not something memorable enough to come back too.

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.
