I find this beer to be really refreshing. It has a great combination of thick chewy mouthfeel from the porter and cold refreshing finish of a pilsner. If you looking for a hop bomb this one isn't for you. However if your a fan of a solid mix beer with good malt flavor and a smooth finish give this a try.

Pours a dark black color with ample carbonation. Smell is mostly hops. Taste is smooth no one taste is over powering. Watery mouth feel, easy to drink this one. Nothing too exciting but there is nothing apalling about this beer either. Very good price at 2.99 for a quart at Trader Joe's.

Bought a 946ml (1 qt) bottle from Beers of the World on 6/21/14. Poured into a nonic, served at fridge temp.

appearance: color of Root Beer or Cola. manila head, nice lacing.

smell: mild sweet toasted caramel on top of a little noble hoppiness.

taste: sweet toasted caramel is thinned out a little by the pilsener.

mouthfeel: soft and supple.

overall: this is a tasty, easy to drink beer.

This is not an overpowering dark beer which is why I rate it so highly. The beer has the characteristics one expects in a dark brew, but they come across in a subtle way. This Black & Tan is not the typical cross between dark and light ales, it is a blend of porter (rather than stout) and pilsner (rather than light ale). It is the perfect introduction for newbie beer connoiseurs who have yet to develop a tongue for stout beers.

The packaging is outstanding! The quart size glass bottle has the shape and appearance of a porcelane jug. The screw-on cap has a rubberized gasket so the beer can be partially consumed (why one would do that, is beyond me) and the remaining beer saved for later.
