1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cool bottle, rather disappointing beer. When poured it looked like coke although that would be insulting coke to compare it to this so iíll call it pepsi. Flavor was not well balanced. Hints of porter sweetness as well as skunky vegetable flavors. Had a bitter finish as well. Not impressive, and a pain to finish one of those large bottles.

The bottle is very cool lookin... the kinda thing I wont be throwing away. The pour isnít very impressive at all, and the aroma is nothing to write home about. Itís got a decent flavor and an average palete.

The jug is the best thing going for this beer. Its got a bitter taste that is ok, but nothing great. The palate is very plain. Overall a mediocore beer.

Loved this pilsner porter mix. Sweet and malty , smooth as can be. Love the jug it comes in too.

I didnít know what to expect from this one, but it isnít too bad. The smell is a little coppery with some malty notes. The brew is a little thick, as the description states, with very little head, at least from this bottle. The taste is like most any darker American brew to me, but more bitter. It tastes like what it is---a mixture of Pilsner and Porter, if I remember correctly. I am not a Porter fan, and not even a major Pilsner fan, either, so I shouldnít be thrilled by a combination of the two. Iím not, but I prefer it to a lot of typical American beers Iíve tried.

I enjoyed the mississippi mud. I was a little skeptical trying it, but It was a surprise. Tastes good and has a nice bottle.

very weak palate and pretty light for a black and tan. Has no head, but nice flavor. I actually liked Michelobís black and tan better!

Cool bottle idea. Too bad they didnít put as much work into the beer itself. Donít get me wrong, it is a decent brew. Its just not as good as I was expecting.
