I was in the mood for a black & tan and finally bought this after 7+ years of passing on it. Not sure if this was fresh or aged, bottle was dusty but the liquor was clean....I mean the beer.

The look was chocolatey brown with lots of creamy head giving off the scents of roasted malts and chocolate. The mouth feel was thin and creamy and went down easy.

The flavors reminded me of the Guiness/Bass blend I had in college but this was already stirred up and no need for ratios and a spoon. I get roasted malts and chocolate in the flavors, maybe a touch of coffee, vanilla, and caramel as well. Anyway this was done well and out weighed my expectations. The value for the flavor is there and it was a nice change of pace from the beers I have been consuming lately and will be buying it again soon just because it was a good value for the money.

Poured from the trademark quart jug into a vintage hollow-stemmed goblet. Color is reminiscent of watered-down cola, with a ruby highlight or two. Aggressive pour yielded two fingers of light tan head that settled to a thin ring and a partial cap. Very pretty. Malty aromas and flavors of caramel and dark bread, with a little spice and a touch of char on the tongue. Pleasant bitterness, not too sweet. Mouthfeel is medium-light, and the finish is crisp with a bit of lingering sourness. This is a very good beer, and the price ($4.29/quart) can't be beat.

This beer pours a deep amber with ample carbonation and a good mouth feel. This my first, but see myself drinking many more of these

What can you say, the bottle is the beat part of this beer. Pouts a light brown with a pretty well retained half inch tan head that left nice lacing. Smells of roasted malts, a hint of coffee and a slightly off-putting component that I cannot identify. Tastes of lightly roasted malts, a hint of coffee, grass, caramel and a metallic component that lingers. Light bodied and carbonation, thin mouth feel.

Pours out dark brown with a tan head. Retention is decent and leaves plenty of lacing.

The nose has toasted grains, a hint of coffee and a faint metallic note.

The taste is similar to the nose. Not some much toasted grains as light roasted coffee with a metallic twang.

Light bodied, smooth, nice carbonation. No complaints.

Poured from their unique jug into a pint glass.

Clear brown color with a decent head and lacin. Grassy smell with a bit of roasted malt. Taste is much more light pilsner than porter. A bit weak and watery. Okay, but not something to repeat.

Not impressed with what's inside this bold & interesting looking brown bottle. Way too mellow & watered down tasting for the style. Cheers! C (75-79) score range
