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.

From a 12 oz bottle. Never mind how it pours or looks. Well skip that snooty part of the review because does anyone really care? Its Porter. Its dark. OK? Not much aroma. You really have to get your nose in there. Once you do, its a fairly typical chocolatey aroma. Now the important part. Taste. This is an example of one of my favorite types of porter. Smooth, subdued, slightly more accent on the bitter side than the fruity and sweet. Starts out subtle on first sip, then kind of explodes with goodness towards the back of your mouth. But leaves none of the heavy syrupy after effect that some porters tend to do. Just a slightly grassy aftertaste instead, which oddly enough, works. Robust, but clean and refreshing, just as described and just way I like it. A solid offering from one of the consistently best breweries in Wisconsin. Dont pass this one up.

Tap at Cityworks with commonshawn and ladies. Darker brown into black with a beige head. Nose is more dark fruit like raisin with a hint of chocolate. Taste is predominantly chocolate milk with a very similar mouthfeel to a thin skim milk. Nice roasty malt quality with some bitterness. Maybe a little bit of a coffee characteristics toward the end. It suffers because of the mouthfeel...need a little bit more body. Good but needs to be trained a little bit more.

On draft at B-Dubs around the corner from the hotel on a work trip to Wisconsin. I love that CW is on tap, but I dont like this beer. The pour is a darker red color, kind of brown, with a thicker khaki head that falls down to a thick film leaving some decent lace. This thing just looks thin. The aroma is boring and basic. There is a hint of roasty malt and a light chocolate. More roast. Plain. The flavor is a little worse. There is a strong roasted malt and a light chocolate, but its really forced. Its a sharp chocolate that doesnt go with anything. The mouth feel is watery and light. The carbonation is thin and light and its just not good on the palate. The aftertaste is lightly metallic and just not good. Damnit Central Waters.
