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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Pour a hazy, dark, orangey brown with a creamy, light brown head. Lightly sweet, chocolatey aroma. Medium body with lightly burned and bitter malt accents and a light, underlying tartness. Bitterness in the finish from both malts and hops. There might be a slight infection in there. 171107

Ungstrup (35665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate, as well as lighter notes of coffee and alcohol. The flavor is slightly acidic from hard roasted malt, but may also from a slight infection, which gives it a light touch of vegetables. If just the flavor was as good as the aroma.

Bottle from nflmvp - thanks! Darker brown pour with a medium head. Aroma is dry and roasty - very appealing. Flavor is a nice roasty-chocolate mix that is well-balance. Not overdone, not weak. Classic porter.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2007
This pours a deep mahogany body with slight red highlights and a three-fingered tan head. The lacing is thick and slippery. Its got an aroma of milk chocolate, dark caramel, and lightly roasted malts. Medium bodied, the chocolate in the flavor is like Hersheys Syrup, the caramel gets chewy, and theres a puff of cocoa powder with just a little roasted sensation. Pretty decent.

Bottle Thanks to Sliffy. Pours a dark body with nice head. Aroma is sweet chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, powdered sugar, low amount of caramel. Lightly bitter and a thick mouthfeel. Pretty good Porter.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a decent sized beige colored head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, butterscotch. Flavor is butterscotch, chocolate, roast, toffee. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes sweet and somewhat sticky. Decent, not great though.

ClarkVV (6081) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Bottle from Sliffy drunk on 8/25/07
Clear mahogany-caramel body is topped by a beige head, two-fingers high, that steadily falls to cover, leaving little/no lacing.
Butterscotch, butter caramel, butter and buttertoffee in the nose, and lots of it. Some roast peeks through, but its few and far between.....
Diacetyl fully rampant in the flavor as well, just a complete bomb, with light chocolate and caramel notes to start, but quickly overwhelmed by pure buttery goodness. Or not so much goodness...Filtered texture, loose carbonation. Looks like I didnt miss much from this off bottle. This brewery seems so hit-or-miss.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
12oz bottle, courtesy of Skyview. Thanks, Bob! Pours a dark brown color; medium tan head with good retention and lacing. Sharp citrus and bakers chocolate in the aroma; overwhelmingly lemon and citrus. The mouthfeel shows a similar profile; sharp, spritzy citrus hop presence overwhelming a light dark chocolate and cocoa malty presence; simply too hoppy to be a decent porter, and not hoppy enough to be something else. Medium, bakers chocolate and astringent citrus finish.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Nice and even porter. Well balanced chocolaty flavors. Sweet enough but balanced with just the right amount of hops. Palate is light and smooth. Dark brown with a foamy tan head. Easy to drink.
