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.

Chocolate licorice nose. Really smooth taste of more chocolate and some coffee. Really easy drinking. Pretty well done for sure

This beer pours a slightly hazy reddish brown with a large tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is heavily reminiscent of roasted malts, so much so that some smoke lingers in the nose; however, the aroma is a bit one-dimensional in this aspect. The taste is slightly bitter and mildly umami, bit the aftertaste is dominated by the toasty and smoky flavors that the aroma hints towards. The palate of this beer doesn’t overwhelm the flavor, bit the slick and thin texture, medium-light body, and soft carbonation don’t really support the flavor either.

bit of cocoa and milky mouthfeel with some barnyard hay. aroma is ok and better than the taste. some sweetness and altogether pleasant. hop character does not seem all that liberal.

Nice brown head. Coffee, super-roasted almost burned and with the hops tastes rather metallic. Body’s a little light. Still satisfying but I don’t think I’d have another one.

RRistow12 (365) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a very dark brown with coffee colored head. Nice chocolate aroma with some toasty notes. Taste is chocolate, coffee, a little caramel and roasted malt. Really could pass as a solid stout. Medium to full bodied. Very good Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a foamy, tan head. Very mild aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste starts sweet with a nice burnt sugar flavor. Toast, cereal and roasted malts are present. There’s just a tiny hint of smoke which works for me. Medium mouth feel. Not dry like some stouts but there’s a little hop bite to finish things off. I’d like to try the nitro on tap sometime.

Very well done porter. Refreshing with note of coffee and chocolate. Not too alcoholic which was nice.
