nice malt aroma; dark brown, but with a watery look; the taste is also watery; not bad, but just not interesting

Big props for making the most wonderful bottle ever. It looks so back-woodsy. And a full pint too. Wonderful! The beer is very carbonaty at first, but smoothed out soon. Decent beer, decent for a store bought black and tan. Tastes very similar to the Yuengling Black and Tan.

Hmmmm. Very neat but strange bottle with a screw cap. Deduction! Nice frothy head with great lacing. Small carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts and some nuts. Color is a very nice dark reddish brown. Flavor is a little weak with malts and a bit of chocolate. Finish is smooth but bland. An ok beer and not impressive.

Didn't really taste like a porter. I'm surprised to see this from NY. i was thinking wetlands. Probably why this beer sucks ass.

Not a bad beer but is NOT a porter by any chance. It's kinda nutty and sligtly malty, not much alcohol flavor (read bland!). Better than some macrobrews

It sucks that Mississippi mud is made in New York, what a rip off. With that aside it's not a bad beer. It's not good either. Very watery and lacks flavor for it's color. Buy it for the bottle.

Okay, so the jug is cool. And it's not that expensive. Reddish-purple brown. Average lacing and retention. Too bright looking. Aroma is fair: very nutty with buttery malts and a little bit of cocoa. Flavor disappoints: synthetic-tasting smokiness, plasticy, just not a good blend, in very real terms. Palate and finish are beyond underwhelming. Could it be thinner than water?

Dark brown appearence that you can barely see through. Only a trace of thickness can be found in this beer and it has an unimpressive finish.

They call this a stout porter?! Bullcookies! Although better than any macrobrew, this stuff is on the wimpy side, and "black-and-tans" should be made, not bottled! Hrrrmph!

Nice malty aroma, though weak and a bit sour. Light hops. Off-white foamy lacing head atop dark copper brown clear beer - coloring looks fake. Medium watery body with medium-light carbonation. Taste is weak, with alcohol. Some malts and hops, low bitterness. Sort of sour with hint of caramel. OK, but nothing remarkable.
