16 ounce can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours like a root beer, light brown color with a tan head, creamy lacing, no retention.

A: Lots of caramel and toffee malts, light brown sugar, smells like a coke, rum-like sweetness, smells sweet not getting any roasted notes from the porter that's supposedly in it.

T: Taste like a brown ale with a touch of light brown sugar and rummy sweetness, caramel and toffee malts, light toasted bread, moderate amount of coffee like bitterness, finish is dry with a watered down porter like finish,

M: Light, lots of carbonation, fairly easy to drink.

O: I enjoyed this, a very light easy to drink porter with some slight brown ale notes. I was expecting less from this beer.

This is one of my all-time favorite beers. I drink it from the cool little jug it comes with, and usually frost it in the freezer (from warm) for about an hour.
Look: Well, they don't call it a black and tan for nothing, but it has an almost oily look from the two types of beer mixed together. I like it a lot.
Smell: Sweet aromatic.
Taste: Nutty aftertaste, very pleasant to my taste-buds.
Feel: It goes down watery, and has a crisp carbonation, MAKE SURE IT IS ALMOST ICE COLD!

Had this one straight from the csn and also from the bottle. The bottle is much more impressive than the ale. Some roast, some malt sweetness, no noticeable hopping. Watery taste and feel. Again, nice bottle.

Reviewed from notes. From out of this mini-growler, this beer shows a dark hazy brown to black sort of color with a minimally white foamy head that ends up leaving a slight trickling lacing that slides right on into the body. The smell, well, there’s the German malts, somewhat Pilsener like but still letting the roasty sort of quality running about it, but its mainly just roasty and doesn’t really show anything else. The taste was basically just roasty and sweet and had a weird bland dry aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat between a light to medium and had a decent sessionability running about it. Carbonation seemed okay, but nothing over the top. Overall, not a bad black & tan, but also not a really pre-made version of one.

My friend bought me this beer. Coolest looking bottle I've had in a long time. Poured a dark ruby color with a large head. Smells heavy. Tasted some sweetness, almost like a tea rather than a light coffee. Really watery. Not bad, not great.

I'm glad I tried this, as it is a good fallback when I might not be able to find my favorite Porters. It does have a lasting head. Nice reddish coffee color. It isn't a strong taste either way. Just decently refreshing medium cold. No real aftertaste. Like it has maybe the Pilsner half of it is lightly hopped.

Pours a dark ruby color with the smallest head that instantly disappears. Has the flavors of a weak porter - some chocolate and maybe coffee - as well as a pilsner - crispness and grains. The mouthfeel is watery and medium-hi carbonation. It's overall decent, nothing too special, but good.

Look - Clear light brown in color with a short fizzy light tan head. No lacing, looks like coca-cola.

Smell - Burnt malt, slightly nutty, mild

Taste - Toasted malt, black tea, thin cola like sweetness, dry aftertaste.

Feel - Thin bodied, loads of carbonation. Quite watery.

Overall - Bland and boring.
