3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Prime 16 - New Haven, CT. Aroma is a green, bristly raw hop resin on the catty side. The palate is a clash of the titans, dark brown malts against a rough, coarse hoppiness. Iím not digging the hop profile and the malt profile gets buried by it. Dry.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewtopia, highly recommended by the dude there. Dark bown with lasting head and lace. Spicy leafy caky caramel brown sugar aroma. Robustly roasted caramel brown sugar maple syrup nuts and subdued fruit with assertive woody bitterness and light citrus covered in toasted caramel. Pretty high carbo accentuates the hops. Why is this so much fucking better than the similar though weaker Sixpoint Beast Mode that I jut poured down the drain. Richness! I think thatís it. Or maybe flavor!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Best By: 06/30/15.
Appearance: Pours out a very dark reddish-brown body with a finger of beige-tinted foam. Good lacing on the descent.
Smell: Durty Mud leans forward with floral, citrusy, juicy hop notes atop the toasty (and additionally lightly roasty) maltiness with its hints of caramel and stale coffee grinds.
Taste: Toasty, roasty malts with touches of coffee and cocoa powder. Modestly sweet with a low, light hint of caramel. Slightly citric, fruity hops tasting of grapefruit and tangerine rind. Also a bit floral, a bit resiny. Moderate bitterness. A dry maltiness on the finish with lingering citric qualities and bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It does a mighty fine job at being a hopped up brown.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours real nice cola color with fluffy tan head. Real strong pine in nose. Taste mixes in the pine with thick caramel and biscuit. Pretty oily in the mouth with a drying finish. There is something earthy and dirty about this.

Pours brown, with lasting tan foam. Decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by heavy pine, very nice. Taste is initially wonderful - nice hop/malt balance, but finish is a bit dry and tart.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany pour from a 12 oz. Bottle. Khaki head dissipates quickly, but lacing remains.
Nutty aroma with woody and clay notes. Bread taste at first evolves into smoky taste, a brief caramel pop and finally a long dry bitterness. Slight alcohol burn that gets a bit more noticeable as the beer warms. A fine late winter offering!

Comes out of tap translucent dark mahogany with a nice light tan head. Sharp, hoppy aroma has earthy, caramel, and toasted malt notes. Flavor has hoppy, grassy, earthy, woody and caramel tones for a distinctive chord of tastes. Texture is smooth, fairly firm, not so fizzy. Get down and Durty!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown pour with a short khaki head. Aroma of caramel and grapefruit. Taste offers bold and bitter tangerine and grapefruit rind with bold and bitter chocolate and coffee. Bitterness lingers on the palate but is not unpleasant. This is not that different from a black IPA and the end result is pretty spectacular.
