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. Mudslinger pairs nicely with grilled meats, stews, fowl, and even smoked oysters or salmon. Available on the West Coast from January through April.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market P Street, Washington, DC. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and faint hops. The taste is tart fruity notes, caramel, toasted malts. Medium bodied. Not very nut-brownish.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours mahogany, clear, with 1-fimger eggshell head. Nose is malty, red winey fruit, berries. Tastes very malty, with vinous fruit, cacao, some hops, and an overall sweetness with a pretty smooth finish.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with an off-white head and a copper-brown body. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel and pine. Taste is caramel, light hops and pretty watery. Creamy carbonation. Not a horrible Redhook offering.

Ibrew2or3 (6905) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear deep red-amber with thin tan head. The aroma has some roasted malts mixing with bits of caramel malts, chocolate malts, spicy hops and black licorice. The taste offers up notes of roasted malts, a pulse of sweet dark fruity esters and then rolling into spicy and earthy hops. Into the finish chocolate malts surface and then give way to a mild level of burnt malts off into the after taste.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 12, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear amber brown with a light tan head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grains and chocolate with underlying notes of nuts and toffee. Flavor began with light chocolate, nuts and toffee that mellowed slightly to a dark grain and hay finish.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma dark caramel, honey, light clean hop on top. Sweet sided yet not cloying. Slight fruity notes at finish. 7-
Appearance dark amber with hints of brown. Lighter tanned top.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied. Malty, soft textured base. Sweet with slight nutty character, faint touch of chocolate. Fruity fig like finish. Fine but overall bit too sweet even for my taste.

DrSilverworm (6402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Date on bottle reads 12/13/12. Clear red / orange brown color. Not really that brown. Minimal off-white head. Few bits and reaches of lace. Nutty, kind of figgy, caramel malt aroma. Medium body. More crisp carbonation, but not necessarily smooth. Above average sweetness, a bit out of balance. OK brown, not great... Subpar for an American craft brown

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Not quite brown in color but rather dark reddish amber.   Huge frothy light beige head with sticky lacing.   Soft toasted malts, smidgen of lactose sweetness.   Soft hops up front, moderate toasted malt base.   Not a hoppy brown by any means.   Very minor nuttiness.   Not as robust as their old Nut Brown, a little lighter.   Sessionable, unoffensive, and just plain easy to drink.   I could easily kick back a few of these.   Not half bad.

BVery (6286) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Clear light cola pour with a minimal head. Aroma is mild coffee and nutty malts. Palate is pretty thin. Not very good tasting. Meh.

Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of plum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Simple but ok in the nose. A tad clunky and dirty in the mouth. Boring and forgettable.
