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. I'm not a fan of the taste.

Part of a flight at Stone Arch MSP. Similar cola black to the Waconia Peanut Butter Porter but with a more stable tan head. Mild dark malt aroma of licorice and chocolate. Roasty and dry. It's ok. StoutBeerReviews (306) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Swear to god these ratings are getting deleted. I know I rated this before. Roasty robust flavor, great price but kinda thin. Makes it very drinkable tho ozzy70 (1357) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 23, 2017

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours black / ruby red, tan short head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste of same with some sweetness...maybe cherry. Finish is cherry, dark fruits, coffee, milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is mod creamy, light effervescent carb. Decent brew. jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle @ a charity event. Deep brown pour with a tight tan head. Nose is balanced and easy going. Some mild roasted malt, cocoa, and a bit of milk chocolate. Flavor is similar. Balanced sweetness offset by a dry toasty finish. Light and easy going. Some Toasted nuts and chocolate. Light/medium body with moderate carbonation. Solid stuff. chinchill (5451) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2015
12 oz bottle in Columbus Ohio.
Very dark brown; opaque in the glass.
Slightly sweet up front but mildly bitter by the aftertaste.
A bit more flavorful than average for style, with plenty of dark roasted malts but only very faint smoke.
O: tastes like a big beer, including a hint of higher ABV than actually present. beer_rookie (727) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Pours a dark brown. Not a lot of head. Nothing worth noting. JStax (7396) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Aroma is chocolate syrup and coffee. I smell dark malts. Maybe some floral hops.
Taste is again much of the same. Aroma is more of chocolate, taste is more of coffee. Nice balance between bitter and sweet, but leaning bitter.
Mouthfeel is quite smooth. It’s quite heavy. It is bold. I don’t know how drinkable it is from only drinking this one.
Overall it is tasty. A good porter. I just wish it had a bit more in the ABV. Worth a try.
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black color and a light beige head of foam. Fairly malt forward with some milk chocolate character. The taste is moderately sweet and creamy, with a touch of roast sneaking in. Medium body and medium carbonation.
