In this blog, we are going to take a look at another beer from Yuengling and the beer is their Original Black & Tan. If you read my earlier blog on their Flagship Lager, you are pretty much up to speed on this brewery. If you did not, please, go back and read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
This beer has a black color without a head on it. This Black & Tan does not really have a smell to the beer. The taste of this Yuengling Beer is of sweet malty chocolate with a nice dry malty aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable and that will get many beer drinkers in trouble.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.yuengling.com):
Black & Tan Combines our popular Dark Brewed Porter with Premium Beer. Rich and dark in color, it has a well-balanced flavor, with hints of caramel and coffee from the dark roasted malt that finishes smooth and satisfying.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing out, I have been looking forward to trying this beer. I just want to thank my boss for bring me a bottle. I just wished he would have saved me a bottle of their porter. I cannot complain to only getting one out of two of the beers. If you read my earlier one on their Lager, you know I enjoy drinking it. This Black and Tan is the best on the market and it is not the crap that Mississippi Mud puts out. I will never buy that beer again after trying this beer. The only problem I have is the fact that are not available in the Chicago market. This is a great beer with good taste and a nice balance. If you live in the market or know someone that does, go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
