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.

A - Brown colored beer with some amber highlights. Bit of a white head, faded away quickly to some whisps of stick before disappearing altogether.

S - Some slight roasty notes and a lot of sweet pale malts with a bit of corn syrup. Smells a little too much like a sweet macro beer with some roasted stuff added to it.

T - Sorry, taste is worse than it smells. None of this is really offensive, it's just not a good beer. Very sweet, maybe some molasses, but this doesn't taste like a pilsner and some of the minor porter notes that it had on the nose was gone as well. Somewhat watered down.

M - Lighter bodied, soft carbonation, watery.

O - Well, pretty drinkable, but doesn't taste all that good. Best thing about this one was the nice novelty bottle. I picked it up only because I didn't want a six pack of anything at the store and cans of Fosters wasn't doing it for me either. Not recommended.

Poured from my 32 ounce growler into a plastic cup, because I was too lazy to find my good glassware. Sue me.

Appearance: Can't see through the cup, and there's a thick layer of very creamy-looking head on top. Over time, lots of little bubbles permeate the surface and help to decrease the head. When it finally recedes sufficiently, I can see the beer is similar to a moderately-steeped black tea in color. High marks for the head, and the black/tan color being in order.

Smell: Purple fruit and molasses. Maybe just a touch of chocolate in the malt? Then the usual grassy hops of a pilsner...like running through a spring meadow covered in syrup. Ahhh...

Taste: Beer is syrupy-sweet at first (though not cloying), with definite chocolate tones. There's a hoppy bite to it which pierces through the malt base. Aftertaste is a touch on the sour side (shrug), but doesn't detract too much from the beer.

Mouthfeel: Oh wow, this is super-good. Very, very creamy on the palate, with moderate (but focused) carbonation. Beer lasts long, and mellows out in the end, finishing wetly.

Overall: A knockout, in my opinion. I absolutely loved it.
