Notes/Commercial Description:
Mudslinger is a Nut Brown Ale with a Medium body and a fresh aroma. Its malty flavor is layered with light chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. Six barley malts and two hop varieties result in a surprisingly smooth, well balanced dark beer.

Bottled 12/3/12.

Pours a hazy dark copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt and slight nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and nutty flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with some decent aromas and flavors for the style but nothing really stands out about this one.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a mahogany brown color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Decent amount of sporadic and uneven layered lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down.

Smelled roasted caramel notes first. Also nuts, toast, toffee and faint bitter chocolate notes. Had me wanting to come back for more.

Not as much flavor in the taste like the nose. Roasty caramel, toffee, chocolate milk and nuts with bitterness hanging on the tongue after.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter, but still smooth finish.

This beer had its moments, but it was missing something. A bit more flavor I would have rated it higher than a 3.5 (which may have a bit generous).
