My wife picked me up the big jusg of this brew cuzz she liked the jug-like bottle a few weeks agoe and I never reviewed it because it was quite forgettable.Pour is decent a reddish brown color with not much head to it,aroma is very grainy and malty but not much there.I also got a metallic taste but not much just a slight metallic tinge in the finish,some slight caramel malt taste but pretty bland.A beer in a gimmick bottle quite a concept,that how you can sell really bad beer.

Appearance – Clear, medium brown body looks like a mix of dark and light colored ales. The head was very nice. Full, tan, and lots of lacing.

Smell – There’s the standard American grain aroma complimented with roasted malts. The malts though are kind of faint. I also couldn’t find any sweetness in there.

Taste – Well, I think I like the “black” better than the “tan.” The dark flavors aren't bad. The burnt malt, which tastes like a light dark ale, has a chocolaty sweetness to it. The “premium beer” flavor though is typical macro piss.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated and kind of creamy and actually quite smooth. Not bad.

Drinkability – This tastes like a good American attempt at a dark lager.

Comments – This came in a moonshine-type of jug that you’d find down South in a backyard still. It’s quite a sight. If you collect bottles you HAVE to go out and buy one of these.

I bought this in a pre-packaged growler at the state liquor store. Intrigued by the packaging, even more intrigued by the dirty cheap $2.99 price tag. Lets just say you get what you pay for. Might as well pour the beer down the drain and keep the cool bottle.

Appearance - It actually looks like a very good beer, caramel colored, good head, impressive lacing on the pint glass as well.

Smell - Doesn't smell like much, slight hint of chocolatey, roasted porter.

Taste - Going down it is fine, the pilsner is a bit chalky and bitter.

Mouthfeel - on the lighter side, not particularly heavy.

Drinkability - It just tastes too bad to keep drinking more than the quart bottle it comes in.

Overall, pre-mixed black and tans have never been a huge hit in my world but why not? Probably stick to Yeungling B&T if thats what you're into.

3.05/5  rDev -1.6%

Presentation: It was poured from a 1quart jug/bottle into a pint glass. The label is made to look like a stone jug and it has a nice description of the beer. There are some possible batch codes or freshness dates but they are unreadable. No abv.

Appearance: It had a deep crimson red color with good clarity when held up to light. On top is a tall and slow fading head. This head is light tan in color and hangs on well making some lacing on the glass as I drink.

Smell: There is a light toasted malt with some caramel sweetness backed up with some herbal leafy hop notes. I also get a slight papery or a cardboard like oxidized presence in the nose.

Taste: The flavor is a little light or thin but not overly so. I do pick up some toasted malt character with some light caramel like sweetness. Hops come on lightly and offer very little balance. There is only a slight herbal note towards the finish which is still mildly sweet with a slightly dull papery note. This rides in on a smooth and thinly textured body.

Notes: I am not really impressed with this Black and Tan and after drinking half of the quart I cap it back up to save for cooking. Its not a bad beer but its just not one that I wanted to keep on drinking when I have so many better beers on hand.

"Black and Tan: premixed for you"

Head: 2 inch, medium light color.

Color: dark amber, but you can still shine a light through it.

Smell: Imagine Coors Dark.

Tate like: 1 part Fosters Oil Can, 1 part Killian's IR, 1 part Becks Dark.

The bottle states that it is a mix of English Porter and Continental Pilsner mixed together and sold in a Hill-William bottle.

Very Good carbonation during the swallow.
Clean crisp fresh taste.
Not very heavy.
Good head with light tan color.

Bottle material: 100% brown glass bottle with a shrink wrapped label around it to give the appearance of a ceramic XXXX moonshine bottle.

2.63/5  rDev -15.2%

Pours brown-amber with white head. Aroma is mainly malt with some slight roasted character. Pretty ordinary. Flavor is more of the same, tastes sort of like a macro lager mixed with a porter. Not terrible, but not something I would drink again. Medium carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is the only above average part of the beer.

(Sampled several months ago and reviewed from notes. I thought I had already reviewed this but then noticed I had either never entered the review or it was lost somehow.)

Bottle is a 2 pint big mofo , with a gator in a swampy scene. The beer poured a clear , darker brown / auburn , with a creamy , small off white head. Aroma is of slight caramel and other sweet and slightly roasty malt smells. Taste is lightly malty and roasty , with some bitterness and tinge of astringency in the finish. This brew is simple and smooth. It goes down real nice and easy. Mouthfeel is a little light. Quite drinkable and tasty bottled black and tan. Worth a try imo.

Don't really understand this beer, seeing that a black & tan is normally 2 beers. Yes, I know the traditional porter is 2 beers that are blended, but still. Pours darm brown with a thin tan head. Cocoa and metal aroma. Thin mouthfeel, not really smoky or nutty or chocolate. Kind of a blend of all three.
