Very smooth crisp taste, dark amberish color. Very enjoyable, I feel it is underrated.

32 ounce screw capped bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear ruby red/brown color with not quite an inch light tan head. Head retention is decent enough, and there's an OK amount of lacing. The brew smells like toffee, tea, and grainy malt. It tastes like grainy/bready malt, caramel, toffee, tea and some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and is easy to drink. It's better than I thought it would be. $2.99 for a quart of this isn't too bad at all. For the price, it's certainly worth a try!

Pours a nice dark amber color, has a nice cocoa, malt smell and light mouth feel. Decent easy drinking beer.

Color is a bit weak. Almost like an amber. Good flavor. A little nutty. Reminds me more of a Brown Ale than a Black & Tan. definitely a Saranac product (has that "signature Saranac flavor"). That's not very technical, but anyone familiar with Matt's beers knows what I mean.

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.

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.
