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.

Draught at GABF 2008. Dark brown coloured with a small beige head. Light roasted aroma of hops, pin eneedes and grape fruits. Light roasted flavour of coffee and hops. Hoppy finish. Too hoppy for a porter.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Aroma strongly evokes root beer. Pours dark brown, some red highlights, thin beige head. Flavor profile balanced between smoke and honey, milk chocolate creeps up in between as the beer warms up. There’s some lemon at the front, and bitter tobacco on the finish. Drinks smooth, but not particularly thick.

Strykzone (6766) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2008
A thick pouring dark brown with a good amount of red. One inch tan creamy head that dissipates very slowly. A pleasant aroma of roasted nut and milk chocolate. Flavor is similar. This is also a well hopped porter giving some nice balance. Notes of strong coffee. Finished thin in flavor and feel. Still, it was a very good porter.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Pours a deep brown with a small tannish head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolatety balck malt, vanilla and dark fruit. The Flavor is initially acidic then a bit sweet choclate. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes long and bitingly bitter.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Pours an extremely dark chocolate brown color with a thick, spongy, dark khaki head. Intricate ribbons of lacing circle the glass, coating it nearly entirely. The nose is delightfully chocolaty, with backup notes of roasty coffee, lactic cream, earthy hops, and some hints of green peppercorn. Flavors are quite hoppy for a porter, with earthy and even some citrus hops lending further bitterness to the roasty coffee, chocolate, and sweet molasses notes. Finishes with a lingering coffee bite. Medium-plus body, with carbonation on the active side, intensifying the peppery notes. Very easy to drink. Solid porter.

Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2008
As you bring the glass to your lips the roasty, bready notes leap out of the glass at you. Afairly rich tasting porter, with flavors of roastiness, some coffee, tobacco. Bitter up front, sweet in the middle, with a dryness at the end. For an everyday (non-Imperial) porter, this is pretty good. Recommended.

Nuffield (4084) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2008
I was really in the mood for a beer this evening after not having one for over a week, so I picked this one out of the fridge. I’m not sure if it was the right choice. Perhaps it was just the hot weather that made a porter an inappropriate choice. Perhaps it was the slight milky edge that tinged the deep roasted notes with a suggestion of a refrozen cherry popsicle. Perhaps it was just the lack of distinguishing palate, leaving the beer to slide around the mouth and down the hatch without either liveliness or silkiness. But whatever it was, this just didn’t command my interest.
