Mississippi Mud Black & Tan brewed by Mississippi Brewing Co., with an ABV of 5.0% This brew pours out a nice light brown color with a nice off white head. It reminds me of sweet tea, in color. The smell is rich with flavor, you pick up on grains and malts. There is a nice mild sweetness in the smell of this brew. The smell is real inviting, you also pick up on some caramel malts. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavor. A mild sweetness at first. You pick up on malts, and mild roasted grains. There is a lot going on in this brew, but it is smooth. The mouthfeel is smooth, but rich with flavor. Mississippi Mud Black & Tan has a real nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering in this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.5 out of 5. Mississippi Brewing Co., did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again.

A drinkable black and tan. Caramel notes with clean finish.

I am glad I gave the Mud a second chance. It's not the most complex beer around, but it really is a decent alternative to macro lagers. It pours with a bit fizzy head that retreats to the edges of the glass and lingers. There is a fair amount of caramel malt in the flavour, with a bit of Pilsner zest in the mouthfeel. I would agree that it is a far cry from a pub Black and Tan, but for the price and overall packaging, it's worth picking up from time to time.

Poured into a standard, English styled pint glass

A - 3.25 - Pours to a dark mahogany brown with light tinges of red. Pathetic head potential, retention and lacing as, there is none!
S - 3.75 - Simple but solid. Medium smokey malts, almost a peat smoke. Would think this was a light scotch ale if I didn't know better.
T - 3.25 - Its OK. Tastes like a super light scotch ale, has a little bit of smoke and malt. There's also a light yet distinct, hazelnut nuttiness, drinks more like a scotch and brown ale than a porter and pilsner.
F - 1.75 - Watery and thin mouthfeel. Could use a lot of help here,
O - 2.75 - This beer would make a fine transition beer from domestic brews to more craft-oriented beers. This would also make a killer, summer day session chugging beer, right out of the bottle. This beer isn't bad, but it isn't necessarily good either, just "okay". For an anywhere near seasoned beer drinker, you won't be impressed. But the price tag on it is CHEAP, the bottle is AWESOME and it would be worth grabbing if you're looking for a decent beer to chug down or keep a few around to session on.

I liked it for a premixed black and tan.
It was smooth and flavorful.

Seemed more like a plain ol' brown ale to me. Nice malt flavors with a touch of roastiness and toastiness. Oddly, I seem to like it more now than I did when I tried it way back in the day. Enjoyable, if not spectacular.

I remember thinking this was something special before I knew anything about beer. I brought one of these bad boy jugs to a St. Patty's day party. I'm glad those days are behind me.
