Poured from a growler into my frosted Ten Penny pint glass.
A: Pours a very nice brownish-black color that reflects dark ruby when held up to the light. A nice two-finger tan head billows to the top and fades to a decent lace.
S: An aroma of french vanilla coffee and toasted bready malts swirls into my nose. No real hop presence detected.
T: Those toasted malts are in full effect, but with a very slight herbal hop mixed in. It tastes more like a deep, burnt mahogany brown ale, then again, pre-packaged Black & Tans are sort of a unique style all their own.
M: It's a medium-light bodied brew. There's a bit more carbonation in the mouthfeel than what I'd expected, but then again, who knows what makes up the lager portion of this Black & Tan.
D: It's flavorful, light enough to drink for a session, and uses its relatively average ABV to full advantage. I'd pick up a growler of this again.
I think Ten Penny is one of the better Conn. breweries, but still has a pretty limited scope in terms of styles. Though I'm used to drinking layered Guinness and Harp black and tans, I think their blended version is better than average.

It's always nice to get a growler of something. The appearance was nice and black with a coffee colored head. The smell was a lot of malt and very sweet. The taste was great with nice notes of the malt and a lot of chocolate flavors in the beginning which then led to a very clean finish. Easy drinking but with a lot of flavor. My favorite part though was the feel of the beer. Not overly thick, but a nice consistency that coated my mouth. I liked it a lot and would definitely recommend.
