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.

sthlm (1233) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2011
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is brown sugar, chocolate, and roasted malt. Some dark fruit/raisin shows up after awhile.Taste is subdued chocolate up front, and then deeply roasted malt towards the finish. Simple, but nice, although it does get a little ashy at the end.. Fairly thin, finish length is slightly above average. Overall, a very basic porter, but certainly not bad.

12 oz bottle poured into shaker pint. Dark opaque brown body with a tan half-finger of head that settled to a ring. A good amount of lacing is deposited. Aroma is malty - toasted bread, coffee, chocolate - with a touch of hops in the background adding a spicy herbal note. Taste is toasted malt sweetness early then hop spice in the end. Medium body, slick texture, low-average carbonation, long semi-dry roasted finish.

eruizgarcia (223) - - NOV 1, 2014
Pours black with minimal and quickly disappearing head. A bit thin and watery. Strong dark chocolate and coffee aroma, and ashy aftertaste. Great taste but would prefer a bit more carbonation and some lacing. Good overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

badgerbob72 (9) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2014 does not count
On tap...dark brown almost black. While opaque, light can be seen along the edges. Little to no smell. Light coffee with a slight burnt aftertaste. ( to mee this wasn’t bad.) While a solid porter, would like more of a coffee overtone to extend the initial taste.
