Carbonations is lame, so when the muds in ya you know we aint drinking no soda pop. FACT. Lets be honest, if I'm at a party and I got a fist full of mud, shes getting laid. You wont catch me sippin the watered down taste of a peat bog type of brew such as busch lite or others. No pansy IPAs eitha, only that real, raw, smooth, the taste of a Mangrove lagune, canoe gliding ontop of a soup of brown and black clouds. It picked me up like a dust storm in eastern Washington and when that sappy nectar finally endured it's last drop, me and my bussdown were thoroughly pleased, and pleasured. By the mud, see when you give yourself to something bigger than you, you fall back into the mud and let the dirt slowly seep over your body and brown out your sight. It's as if you could go to the local WinCo and pick out an untainted 18 year old virgin, fresh out of high school with everything a pimp knew to, out of a line of well past their golden years milfs, pregnant teenage junkies, and overweight soccer moms looking for some love. That is Mississippi Mud my friends, it's as if mother earths loins were split on the rim of your lips and she let out a stream foggy as the winding meander dumping silts and sands carried from foreign lands down to Mississippi Delta.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a somewhat clear, deep ruby brown with an off-white head that's just under 2 finger thick. Decent retention. A fine, silky and somewhat sticky lacing.

Smell - Notes of roasted chocolate malt and hints of coffee mostly, though a bit muddled, likely by the pilsner.

Taste - Strong notes of chocolate hit right off the bat, and ring through from start to finish. A hint of coffee. A bit of metallic twang creeps up mid-taste, then finishes a tad stale, like day old coffee that's been sitting in tin. Metallic aftertaste lingers.

Mouthfeel - Light in body, and the carbonation is a bit weak.

Overall - Starts off great, but sip after sip becomes a bit of a struggle, as the funky metallic flavor muddles up all the good porter character that's present to begin. Halting the drinkage for a few minutes and allowing the bland metallic flavor to dissipate does help to get back to square one, but is it really worth it? It's not all that great to begin with. Props on one of the coolest bottles in the industry, though!

A - Ha! I had to pick up this old fashioned jug (one whole quart!) of novelty brew. Pours a dirty brown with a small white head. Actually looks like it could be scooped straight from the big river

S - LIght lager with a hint of darker malt. Smells like a thin dark lager more than a self-made black and tan with more expertly "curated" brews.

T - This is really under assertive. Mild and slightly toasty, but there isn't a helluva lot going on.

M - LIght bodied and drinkable. Mellow and a bit fizzier than I would like.

This is a very drinkable and thirst quenching beer. But, it offers nothing to really stand out in my memory except the cool and collectable ceramic jug. Find a wash board and a thimble and you are halfway to the making of the next great hipster "string band."
