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.

From notes taken 09/18/16:

Not layered, just a dull, copper brown. Clear and capped with foamy, creamy-tan head of great retention, with excellent but sparse lacing in this nonic pint. Roasty, toasty, sweet, touch of chocolate and toffee on the nose, more so Porter than Pilsner. Much the same to my palate, seems just a watered down Porter. Bit of dark fruitiness from the Porter side presumably, evolving to a tart metallic finish. Medium-bodied as expected, slightly thicker than water, with soft and fine tingles and an astringent ending. First tried this on a month-long vacation in Arizona back in Summer 2014. So hot out, needed to stay refreshed with different libations. Liked it. Not a top shelf beer by any means, but a fun “style” and I really dig the bottle. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time I’ve had it or any other pre-blended Black & Tan since. I have enjoyed making my own a time or two with different styles of Guinness and various pale ales and lagers.

Nice presentation from bottle to put with its foamy head. Smooth without much punch.
