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.

Dark Murky beer. Has a coffee like aroma. The taste was a lot like a hoppy coffee. I found that to be a strange combination. I want to say it was like a minty coffee. It was interesting but not really my favorite.

Clear brown pour with a beige frothy head. US shelfie porters are funny.. I swear the ones ive 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.

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 Im 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!

Bottle. Vegetal caramel chocolate malt aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate light tan head. Lightly sweet earthy chocolate-caramel malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. Drier than the typical porter. Nice.

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!

Bottle at home. Initial pour was a pint glass of foam. Took about 4 minutes before it settled into some liquid. Amber brown color - looked more like a dunklerbock. The aroma was somewhat muted by the foamy head but there was some standard roasty malts and coffee. The flavors come together quite nicely - roasty, smoky, sweet, chocolate, coffee. Great balance on the finish.

Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a clear deep brown with a touch of amber and a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy dark grains with roasted malts and a touch of bitter coffee. Flavor has a nice bitter dark grains and roasted malts with a bit of bitter chocolate underlying.
