A - Bottle looks like it's moonshine not beer, but when poured out, has a nice dark color to it.

S - Rather standard. Nothing that stands out, but still nothing offensive.

T - Pretty bland. Was expecting something better with the porter mix, but it was really just a dark lager.

M - Odd after taste. Made me want to gulp it quick.

O - For 3 bucks, the price can't be beat, but don't expect anything to high quality.

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.

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.
