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.

Hoprider (587) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
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.

GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2015
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!

scarletfire65 (1423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2015
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.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
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.

MadRobin (2928) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, dark brown, when it settles enough to leave any liquid at the bottom of a very tall glass of foam. Eventually, the beer settled to leave 2" of dark brown liquid below a 5-finger light tan head and fair lacing. Aroma of rich chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, smokey peat and hay. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
