COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust, yet suprisingly refreshing porter, Mud Puppy is a favorite of dark beer lovers. Characterized by a thick, rocky head and luscious chocolate-like nose, the malty profile is balanced by liberal hopping for its style.

On draft at B-Dubs around the corner from the hotel on a work trip to Wisconsin. I love that CW is on tap, but I donít like this beer. The pour is a darker red color, kind of brown, with a thicker khaki head that falls down to a thick film leaving some decent lace. This thing just looks thin. The aroma is boring and basic. There is a hint of roasty malt and a light chocolate. More roast. Plain. The flavor is a little worse. There is a strong roasted malt and a light chocolate, but itís really forced. Itís a sharp chocolate that doesnít go with anything. The mouth feel is watery and light. The carbonation is thin and light and itís just not good on the palate. The aftertaste is lightly metallic and just not good. Damnit Central Waters.

Bottle. Deep brown with white head. Muted nose of dark bread, toasted malt, some hops and faint cacao nibs. Taste is much the same with just a small amount of malt. Thin for a porter.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown; nice brown head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and barley. Taste is roasty, malty, some chocolate notes and even some hops (well balanced). Very good porter, very drinkable and quite enjoyable.

Thanks to Dave. A lot of molasses flavor in this porter. A little smoke and cola. Lightly hopped. Nothing too exciting.

euniceradio (406) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours black with brown frothy head. Aroma of choc, caramel, vanilla and earth. Taste is big choc, vanilla, caramel, toffee and some creamy coffee (cappuccino). Mouthfeel is light-medium for style. Finish is nice bitter choc. Very good (choc) porter...at least it feels good tonight.

Carlisle (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Draft. Dark brown color with tan head and some lacing. Coffee aroma with caramel note. Sweet coffee upfront followed by mouthcoating coffee, chocolate notes and crisp, bitter bite. Lighter body than expected for a porter. Long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
