Pours a sexy brown with a ruby hint through the middle, topped with a half an inch of beige head.
Smells got a sweet malt note.
Taste has the thicker malts on the front finishing with a sweet hop notes on the back.
The pilsner is the finisher here, it is crisp, there is a short malted after-taste.
Drinks very well, solid brew.

Poured into quart beer mug from a thirty two ounce bottle. The bottle is different from other beer bottles. This one, actually, has a handle.

Look: With the pour I got a lot of head and it has a white khaki looking head that sticks around quite long, leaving a lot of lacing on the glass. For the beer itself, held up to the light it looks almost a cherry red to me. It reminds me more of a Killians Irish Red with the color. Tiny bubbles shoot fast to the head and dissipates over time.

Aroma: The smell is very malty at first like a hint of coffee and caramel. Alcohol smell is noticeable.

Mouth Feel: Doesn't taste too carbonated. Definitely a thicker beer than most that leaves your lips sticky. Very creamy as well.

Taste: this is quite delicious! At first you taste remnants of caramel and then the taste of coffee from roasted malts. It leaves with a tiny bitter taste but not an annoying after taste. It's really delicious going down and it makes me anticipate the next sip.

I have had this beer before and it was good. This time around its delicious!

Cool bottle... I like the moon-shine jug look.... great MARKETING.... although....I'm pretty sure that the bottles are expensive! This beer is pure marketing genious.

Poured into a pint glass to produce a 1" head of loose foam. The head disapeared to a thin ring within minutes. The beer is a intermediate brown color.. No lacing to speak of.

The aroma.... is slight.... macro lager smell. Some malt.

Taste: Disappointing. Very little flavor. Kind of like a Negra Modelo.... Dark mexican beer... just dark.... very little substance.

Mouthfeel: thin, too carbonated... dissappointing.

Drinkability: I'll only have the one... no reason to try this again.

1 quart jug poured into a 20oz tumbler. First ever black & tan.

A - Pours with a finger-and-a-half of fizzy tan head. Really deep, dark amber-red, but still pretty translucent. The head settles to a nice cap, that leaves minimal lacing.

S - Lots of dark malt, pretty roasty, bits of molasses. Fairly bitter.

T - Really strange. Definitely a fair bit of roasted malt, but not a lot of bitterness. Really crisp, sort of earthy. Not a very strong flavor either though, pretty watery.

M - Carbonation is well done, body is light to medium in weight. Meh.

D - Decent, but pretty watery. Probably not worth another try. Cool bottle though.

Mississippi Mud Black & Tan
32 oz bottle
Recent brewing, drank 08/06
Regular pour in a tulip glass

Poured a clear reddish brown, with average frothy head.

Smelt of burnt molasses and a hint of licorice.

Taste was of light sweet bready malts and dying quickly with slight fruit and spice, and awkward bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel was light, fizzy and astringent.

Overall, a classy beer to drink in public straight from the jug-shaped bottle, that will still draw ridicule from the monks.
