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.

Agreed with other posters that you can do better poured from a tap at a bar. This beer is good, not great but not bad. The jug itself looks cool on my bar.

First off, this is nowhere near like a Black & Tan you might order at a pub. But overall, it's an OK beer. The mouth feel is very light. I kind of liked this because it isn't heavy like some porters. But it is confusing as I was expecting something heavier given the flavor. You get a hint of nuttiness from the porter but the lightness of a pilsner.

I had the Mississippi Mud last night. All in all, not bad tasting. A great buy for only 1.99 for a quart which poured out as 2 1/2 pint glasses w/head included along with a surprise (lacing following the head) which added a quarter of a point to my rating. I knew it wouldn't be like a real black 'n tan poured. But even as a porter/pilsner blend it was quite tasty and went down easily without giving you that too full feeling. I could have drank another 2 1/2 pints!

In reading the other reviews here, it is evident those who appreciate exactly what it is; and for the money, I certainly can not complain! Especially since the craft beer craze is demanding what I believe is too much money for average to below average tasting brews. I don't know who is pricing things this high; is it the brewer, the distributor, the retailer, or all the above? Of course $1.99 isn't high for a full pint of pretty decent black and tan blend. I would actually rate this higher than the Yuengling's version as Yuengling was my first regular store-bought B&T until I discovered Mississippi Mud and how good it tasted.
