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.

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

Hoprider (420) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Clear brown pour with a beige frothy head. US shelfie porters are funny.. I swear the ones i’ve had could just as well have been a brown ale. Taste: some semi-bitter roasted malt, nutty brown flavor, chocolate chip cookie and a hint of licorice and bitter coffee. Pretty light body. Semi dry aftertadte and a fairly short one too.

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
A hitten surprise brought to you (me) by hoprider. Pour a clear dark brown, with a small slightly off white head. Aroma of nuts, slight chocolate. Slight coffee and roasted malts. Taste is very slightly up front, with a medium roasted bitterness. Medium/slighty watery body, with a lively carb.

Had this beer with brunch (because I’m fancy like that...) and that is its true calling. The only thing I could have asked for was for this to be a coffee Porter. Then I would have been like woah!

GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Pours dense, dark, brown to black with a plush foam head that remains, effervescent. Nose has notes of chocolate, hops, pepper, with a smokiness that provides a rich full aromatic experience. Goes across the palate silky and finishes crisp with a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Tastes smooth, milky, with the spicy hops rounding out the drink. The flavors blend so well it makes it hard to distinguish individual notes. This is a smooth, crisp, well made porter. This beer tastes like another!
