Very dark pour. Lightly roasted with good chocolate notes and some earth. Medium bodied. Dry finish. Some bitterness throughout. Nice porter. Jpmercer (83) - shakopee, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Medium-bodied and robustly flavorful, Mudshark Porter sports a satisfying dry finish and rich notes of chocolate. Smooth, dark, and bittersweet cocoa flavors linger on the palate from first pint to last. This is a hearty brew born of seven malt varieties, including an especially generous portion of chocolate malt. Then, Mudshark gains hop bitterness in the kettle, including a late addition imparting a gentle zest. The result of all this is a happy salute to your inner chocolate lover. So smooth and creamy, Mudshark ranks among the favorites of a special class of aficionados known for their appreciation of fine beer: the Mighty Fish Brewers. We assert that after a day well-spent exploring the great outdoors, a friendly pint enjoyed with barbeque, sharp cheeses, or-but, of course!-chocolate has the power to help sustain weary souls and rejuvenate tired bodies.

Dark cola-colored beer with a thin foamy beige head that disappears quickly. Nose of light balsamic, semi-sweet cocoa, and Dr. Pepper. Flavor is slightly dryer than the aroma with unsweetened coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of smoke, and leather finished with a slightly tangy bitterness. Pretty good, if a little chalky. nimbleprop (8808) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2017

Draught at the brewpub in Everett Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Dark brown color, almost black. Round mouthfeel, but the aroma and flavor is a bit on the roasty side for a Porter, although it has some chocolate; ordinary bitterness.
Balanced and flawless.
Draft at Olympia brewpub last month. Pours dark, opaque with creamy head. Sweet chocolate nose. Taste: chocolate, roast, cola. Moderately sweet, finish is light roast bitterness. On the sweet side for a porter. Light+ body, oily texture. 50belair (3684) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2014
