Good looking beer with a nice balance of malt and hop bitterness that makes it very drinkable. There’s a warm, bread like feeling in the mouth which is very full and satisfying in a way that I was not expecting. Some burned malts in the aroma.
Stout like appearance, with a tan head sitting on the black/reddish body. Some lively carbonation out of the bottle, but this fades quickly to reveal a more average looking dark beer.
A mild finish with neither the malt nor the hops dominating. A little dry at the end for my taste that takes away some of the anticipated smoothness.
Not a big fan of pre-bottled Black and Tans, in fact not big fan of Black and Tans period, but this was better than I was expecting.
