Average beer at best.

A: Dull, I thought it would be darker
S:Boring, doesnt smell interesting.
T:Alright, tough to replicate the black and tan from a bottle.
M:Needs more malts for me.
O:Good because its cheep and the bottle turns into a growler you can use at your local brew pub.

Just can't replace the proper black & tan appearance out of a bottle (not without one of those didgerydoos). Dark tan colored, big head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma was like the appearance, ruddy and muddy.

Taste, semi-sweet, kind of thin bodied, no discernable hop presence. Really just kind of dark in color without submitting any real malt flavor component to the palate. Kind of reminiscient of a better looking Newcastle brown ale. This is lots more tan than black.

Poured unto a tankard.

Appearance: Super dark brown, not truly opaque. Head is tan, about 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Light hops, something coffee-ish about this beer. Nothing wrong with this but come off very bland. Smell disappears in second after a sniff.

Taste: malty, but tasty of beer. Little hops here and there but just the right balance.

Mouth: Medium carbonation, comes off smooth.

Overall: not the best black and tan but definitely a go to beer if you spot this in your local beer cooler. Hope you have all enjoy, Salud.!

Mississippi Mud Black & Tan has a thick, creamy, beige head and a clear, copper appearance, with streaming bubbles and nice lacing. The aroma is of toasted barley malt, sweetness, nuts, black coffee, and hop spice. Mouthfeel is medium, and Mississippi Mud Black & Tan finishes fairly dry and easy drinking. Overall, this is a mild, pleasant beer, and I think it’s certainly worth trying.

My wife bought a quart bottle of this because of the size, cost, and because it said black and tan (fond memories of mixing a stout w/ a lager at bar). She loved it. Myself ... I found it kind of bland and relatively tasteless. The stronger more complex craft beers are starting to spoil me.

a: light brown

s: weak smell, slight smell of malt. didn't really notice any hops

t: very weak, very bland. think I would have trouble distinguishing between this beer and a bud lite in a blind taste test.

mf: overly carbonated for my preferences

overall: cool container. would look neat at a party. mild taste. would drink again (no offending tastes or smells), but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Picked up a quart bottle on a whim and drank in a regular pilsner glass. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Smell was a bit musty with a touch of chocolate. Tasted like a weak porter to me with a bit of a bite at the finish. Just a nice drinking beer but nothing to get worked up about.

Watered down. That's the best way to describe each and every element of this beer. It poured as though it was watered down. The smell was good, though it smelt weaker than it should have been. And this all carried over into the taste. I seriously wondered if watered was added in the bottling phase, because otherwise, I don't see why this couldn't be a pretty descent beer. If so, that's unfortunate. And its very cheap price would confirm that.

Avoid this beer unless you just want to collect a pretty cool bottle.

Deep copper amber color. Thick cap of tan foam and fair lacing.

Very grainy and cereal like smell. Light chocolate smell.

Pretty watery tasting. Some grain and nutty flavors with a touch of roast. Tastes so watered down though.

Thinner body and kind of dusty or chalky. Dry finish.

Not a real enjoyable beer. Seems to be more of a gimmick than anything. I would recommend avoiding this one.
