Saranac Black & Tan

Beer score: 6.8
Web site: Saranac
If you don't know, a black and tan is a mixed stout and lager (at least in this case). Here the stout overpowers the lager, but this is a common fault of black and tans (and can't be overcome unless maybe you used very little stout). Traditionally black and tans have to be made at a bar and don't come mixed, as they do here in the bottle, but there's nothing wrong with these brews mixed in a bottle. This would be a good drink for heavier foods, like steak and potatoes. Not a bad brew at all. Those who like heavier beers will enjoy this one.
