After reading several reviews from everyone else, I'm in the same basic camp. Nothing really bad, but nothing really great either. If you're going for an aesthetic standpoint the look and the look of the bottles and cans are pretty cool at least. Take it or leave it.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark mahogany brown with a thin, fizzy khaki head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of mild dark toasted malt, cocoa, bready malt. Flavor starts with light caramel and toasted malt, then thins out to thin dark malt and mildly bitter hops with a slightly metallic earthy element. Light bodied with good carbonation. The dark malt component of this seems nice, but the whole beer seems watered down. The lager part does not seem interesting enough to balance the darker portion. Starts ok, but finishes thin and chalky. I have not had a black and tan made with middle of the road lagers and porters for years, but this does not seem quite up to even that standard. A pleasant, but understated, almost watered down version of the style. For the price, probably better than anything else in its size (1 quart) and price, but that's about it.

Mississippi Brewing Mississippi Mud Black & Tan, 5% ABV, 65 IBU. First thing to know is that this beer has never been to Mississippi as it is brewed in New York! It is in a huge bomber+ 32oz bottle. This beer is pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Has no bitterness, no alcohol taste, but not much other taste either. It seemed pretty heavily carbonated. I don't believe the 65 IBU rating - there is no bitterness at all. The bottle really is the coolest part of this beer. I'd get it again, particularly at the low price per oz.
