Slightly confused by the concept of a Black & Tan in a bottle (all my experience is with these “mixed” drinks is them being poured at the bar) but thought I should at least try it.
Unsurprisingly, average in the extreme. Some fizzy carbonation out of the bottle, sort of had a caramel appearance, looking a lot like a Michelob Amber Bock pour. Carbonation was way too great, in fact a rather nasty, fizzy experience.
Any aroma was masked by the fact it was poured into a frosted mug, but after about ten minutes it began to release a little nutty character. After that, the tastes were of mild liquorice and some sweet malts. A little bitterness in the finish, but not hops, more of a metallic twang.
First and last bottle of this consumed I expect.
