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: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

From the groovy little jug in a pint glass via a friend from work---Thanks Kevin!
This decent little black and tan pours a medium dark amber with a nice head
of off white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and features some nice
light lacing. Nose of caramel and roasted malts. Flavors follow with light exception
featuring dark roasted malts on the rear, caramel sweet malts on the front and middle,
and subtle herbal hop notes on the back. Highly quaffable mouth feel; medium body,
subtly dry, and medium low carbonation.

I have had this in the past and enjoyed it----we are overwhelmed with good brew
saturation these days. This is rather nice for what it is. A rather lost little style.

Cheers

Pours a dark amber color with a nice quarter inch head. Smell has roasted caramel malt aromas. Slightly sweet. Goes down a little dry and a little bitter. Tastes the same as it smells. First Black & Tan I've reviewed. Overall pretty good.

I love the look of the quart bottle, great gimmick, so I thought I'd give it a try. It went slightly down hill from there. Very dark colour and off white head after pouring into my trusty glass mug. Looks nice but tastes and smells maybe slightly better than average for what it is suppose to be which is a novelty I guess. Not sure why Mississippi brewing is located in NYC LOL.
