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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2012
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.

Draft at Valhalla, 9th Ave, New York City. Pours very dark brown with a small off-white to beige head. Aroma of malt, milk chocolate, light roasted coffee, vanilla and dark fruits. Moderate sweetness and roasted bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish a little dry, milky chocolate.

Bottle in MV - picked up in CT. Pours rich brown with a creamy, tan head. Nice roasted malt aroma, with ample chocolate, some burnt toast. Medium sweet flavour with nice, gooey chocolate character, some raisins, brown bread, fudge, subtle burnt earth bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation.

Peanut butter, charred oak, soil, cocoa nose. Cloudy mahogany, thin yellow head, decent lace. Molasses, charred oak. Medium body, easy carbonation. Intense and full flavored. This is my second beer from this brewery and I’m becoming a big fan.

commonmac (1288) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
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.
