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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 4, 2005
12 oz bottle. Black with hints of ruby, thin but very stable cola-like bubbly head...big roasted malt in the nose, chianti wininess and a splash of vanilla, impressive...alas, the flavor doesn’t carry through, the body is brash and somewhat harsh, roasty and bitter but curiously flat and dull to finish, my first disappointment from this excellent brewery.

Dark brown beer; by the time it got to me, it didn’t have much of a head. Smooth mouthfeel - not too watery. Malty, chocolatey. Very excellent beer. One of the best Porters I’ve had from a tap in a long time!

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Pours a dark brown with a lare thick lasting head. Slight reddish in color through the light. Aroma is of bread, hops, and malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and filling, very smooth given the high carbonation. Taste is of bread, malts, and hops. Can also taste oats and barley especially, and is extremely well balanced. Chocolate notes come out underneath. An excellent porter.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Very dark brownish black color with a medium beige head. Nice roasted coffee, hazelnut and caramel aroma. Chocolate, hazelnut coffee, and lactose flavors that start out strong, but quickly dissappear leaving behond only the coffee flavor. Very crisp feel with a dry finish. Interesting.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Dark brown/black with a medium beige head. The aroma was absolutely wonderful...dark chocolate and coffee...with just a hint of sourness. The flavor was good up front..roasted coffee and a lactic sourness, but all of the sudden it was gone...no taste at all...weird. The feel was very crisp on the tongue...semi-dry finish.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark brownish to black apperance with a moderate beige head. The aroma is chocolate and charcoal. The flavor bends itself more bitter than sweet with a slight smokey flavor. Im catchin some coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted flavors. It was pretty darn good for a style that tends to be very repetative. Another winner from that playa Facto!

IndianaRed (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Bottle Pours a very dark brown with very little head and slight even lacing. Aroma is not very strong but has nice tootsie roll, smokey notes. Flavor is quite smokey, charcoal and not so much of the sweet notes form the aroma. Feel is moderate and yes a litle chalky. Finish is dry and with a campfire bitter flavor. Thanks again to MrFacto
