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.

Bottle. The pour was a seriously dark murky brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that lasted a good long while, reducing to a few foamy puddles and a large collar which produced some excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was mild of a roasted chocolate malt, a light resin hop and a mild leathery yeast with hints of chocolate and coffee. The taste was lightly sweet with a creamy chocolate note at first then became nice and malty with a big dose of coffee and a mild hoppy finish. The flavor hung around for just a little while with a nice bold hoppy coffee ending. Mouthfeel was medium in body and had a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation. Overall a bold and roasty brew with a nice blending of hops, which worked very well with the dark Porter flavor.

Ehh. A very bland, typical token porter. Nothing about it stands out to me honestly. A bit of a bite on the back end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a generous brownish head. The aroma is clean. Good dark, roasty taste with ample bitterness. I like this beer and a lot of microbrewery porters, but they are really stouts due to their full flavor, black color and high bitterness. If anything is missing, this porter does not have the typical ester aroma and flavor found in British porters like Fuller´s.

12 oz. bottle. Pretty good porter. Aroma is a bit plain, generic roasted barley and dark malt. Flavor is a little more interesting, with more kick in the roastiness, a good malty grainy base, a bit of chocolate malt sweetness, and a good, balanced amount of hops that is noticeable but not overpowering. Palate is just a tiny bit on the harsh side, not overly so, but a little more carbonated than would be ideal. Overall a very decent beer that I may consider again.

A thin looking black body with no head. A thin looking body. Aroma had a nice roasted malt qualities to it. Mild chocolate malts and a hint of cola to it. Flavor wa a little unbalanced. It seemed to have an almost cherry coke flavor and there was notes of roasted malts. The carbonation seemed to enhance the cherry coke flavors. A light body that i found over carbonated.
