Pours with a tan colored, frothy, initially two-finger thick head. The beer is concentrated, burnt amber color that shows ruby and amber hues when held up to the light. The aroma is a mix of light roast notes, butter, toffee, well toasted grain and more diacetyl accented butter notes. While the diacetyl is not overwhelming it certainly plays a big role in the aroma profile of this brew; ultimately it is just too distracting.

Light bodied and quaffable, there is a noticeable sweetness to this brew up front and in the finish. The sweetness in the finish is accentuated by buttery, almost butterscotch diacetyl driven flavors. The diacetyl is not as noticeable in the flavor as it is in the aroma, but it still plays a significant role. Sweet grain, almost corn-like flavors are offset by a light roast character that provides a touch of burnt acidity, and a soft, toasted grain character to the finish. A light hop bitterness becomes more noticeable in the finish where it tends to lightly linger on in the palate after the beer has left my mouth. Can be a little thin at times, a bit more malt richness would certainly be welcome.

About what I expected, not horrible, though not something to write home about either. The soft diacetyl character certainly doesn't help. I'll certainly pass an having this again though.

Pours a dark black color with ample carbonation. Smell is mostly hops. Taste is smooth no one taste is over powering. Watery mouth feel, easy to drink this one. Nothing too exciting but there is nothing apalling about this beer either. Very good price at 2.99 for a quart at Trader Joe's.

The Porter and Pilsner mix just didn't work. I seemed to get the hops from the Porter first and the finish from the Pilsner and the finish was a problem. There was very little aroma and the carbonation was very light. I would not buy this again. The color was the best part of this brew.

A - Kind of a weird dark amber color with a small foamy, fizzy, off-white head. Disappears right away with just a patch of lace left.

S - Really nutty aroma with some earthiness and a bit of mineral flavor. Kind of a toasted spent grain aroma. Pretty sweet.

T - A lot of nutty flavor with a good amount of sweet toasted spent grain. A bit thin and lacking flavor, and malt forward. Weird mix of light nutty flavors, probably coming from the mix of porter and pilsener.

M - Light body with less than average carbonation. A bit of a sticky feel on the finish but overall light and watery.

D - Light and sweet and somewhat drinkable. A little too sweet and the flavors don't make me want to grab some more.

Notes: Really sweet, malty, nutty flavors. Weird mix of flavors and it doesn't really strike me as a black and tan given the mix of porter and pilsener. Not great and kind of weird, but for the price it might be worth trying.
