look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

I know that 3.5's across the board seems like a very lame and generic review, but that is exactly what this beer is to me. A 3.5. Solid all around but not great anywhere.

It looks, smells, tastes and feels like a solid 3.5 out of 5.

Very tasteful beer for the value. Picked up a growler for 4 bucks and it looks cool! I love Black and Tans and this was perfect for saving the pouring out of two different beers. Great for when you want a Black and Tan at home without putting forth the effort to make it yourself.

3.96/5  rDev +27.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pour: pours a black brew with a tan head.

Smell: a light roasted smell

Look: comes in a cool looking bottle that would be good to fill up again.

Taste: roasted malts on the pallet and coffee on the after taste. With a mouthfell of a medium body brew.

Overall: this is a start up beer. Just a smooth easy drink that will be pleasing to the new beer drinker.

The Porter and Pilsner mix just didn't work. I seemed to get the hops from the Porter first and the finish from the Pilsner and the finish was a problem. There was very little aroma and the carbonation was very light. I would not buy this again. The color was the best part of this brew.

I find this beer to be really refreshing. It has a great combination of thick chewy mouthfeel from the porter and cold refreshing finish of a pilsner. If you looking for a hop bomb this one isn't for you. However if your a fan of a solid mix beer with good malt flavor and a smooth finish give this a try.

Pours a dark black color with ample carbonation. Smell is mostly hops. Taste is smooth no one taste is over powering. Watery mouth feel, easy to drink this one. Nothing too exciting but there is nothing apalling about this beer either. Very good price at 2.99 for a quart at Trader Joe's.

Bought a 946ml (1 qt) bottle from Beers of the World on 6/21/14. Poured into a nonic, served at fridge temp.

appearance: color of Root Beer or Cola. manila head, nice lacing.

smell: mild sweet toasted caramel on top of a little noble hoppiness.

taste: sweet toasted caramel is thinned out a little by the pilsener.

mouthfeel: soft and supple.

overall: this is a tasty, easy to drink beer.
