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.

sarauckelman (159) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Opaque dark brown, with slightly oily head. Aroma of malts, molasses, and burnt. Strong smoky/peaty flavor. very earthy. Palate is a bit more harsh/alcoholic than perhaps is preferable, it’d be nice if it were a bit smoother. Well crafted and enjoyable.

Dark red/crimson with a filmy head with abundant lacing and a high amount of carbonation and good lacing. Nose is strong roasted barley/malts and chocolate with some floral hops. Flavor has some surprisingly strong hoppiness along with some coffee, roasted barley and chocolate flavors. Body is fairly heavy with some moderate carbonation. Pretty good!

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Thanks to my sister in law for bringing this back from WI for me. Deep brown pour with a thick sticky tan head. The aroma is lovely - soft sweet milk chocolate with a nice earthy/herbal hop flavour. Fairly earthy cocoa and soft roast flavour along with a longer bitter finish. Really tasty pint actually. A bit of soft sticky malt sweetness on the finish

AWISLguy (1180) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a murky brown with an off-white head, almost no lacing. Aroma has cocoa, caramel and slightly burnt malts. Taste is of sweet caramel, bakers chocolate, roasted malts and a vague vegetal-ness. Medium bodied. More sweetly sticky than anything else. Finishes a bit short and sweetly bitter. Perhaps a bit of an old bottle?

kaser (2535) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2013
This is the nitrogen version. Tootsie roll smell. Like a sweet chocolate coffee candy. Black pour. Brown frothy head. Had on draft at Jerry's. taste is rich and creamy. Like milky. Very very good

Tortman18 (183) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Very cloudy brown. Looks like apple cider. Small creamy head with a lot of lacing. Aroma is malt and spice with a slight nutty hint. A Very weird lake/fishy aroma. Not pleasent at all. Mouth is strange. Very bitter/earthy with a chocolate finish. Not a pleasing beer at all. I definitely want to try this again, in hopes this batch I had was bad.
