Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Before we begin, an announcement. This review will be the 99th in the series thus far. That means, and you knew this was coming...There's 99 bottles of beer on the wall!" We'll here's to that achievement, and the fact that I have kept my promise to you of passing them into the great beyond, one beer at-a-time. Now back to the blog..............

The beer that's half porter and half pilsner. Maybe even, half alligator and half crocodile.

I used to drink this years back; just like me it's been around a while. You'll find it in distinctively ginormous 32 oz. jugs which will add to your experience. Go ahead, make friends. It's like a pass-around pack! Have some now and have some later with the screw on metal top! Novel idea, though Matt's has had many. Like their "beer ball" in the 70's & 80's. The first of the trend towards mini-kegs.

The "Mud's" container makes you want to hook your pointer finger in the loop and sling it on your shoulder for a swig, moonshine style! Hoo boy! When you're all done with the beer, just stuff some posies in the jug, lay out yer best gingham table cloth, and you gotch yerself a dandy table centerpiece fer Sunday dinner!

As for the beer itself, it is a good as I remembered. Sweet upfront with a bit of the gator bite at the finish. A good drinker all around. And as said before, quite a novel dispenser for the Friday night poker/smoker with your gang.

Porter & pilsner, black & tan, half & half and not half bad.
