Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Pluff mud [plŭff-mŭd], noun, A mixture of dirt and water indigenous to the marshes of the South Carolina Lowcountry, with a distinct odor that’s endearing to locals, but off-putting to tourists and redcoats.

Our second flagship beer was an effort to bring the American Porter style to the Charleston market proper, while also making a beer that stays appealing as the mercury rises. We think we’ve succeeded in Pluff Mud Porter. It presents (and smells) like a classic porter, with subtle chocolate notes and a silky finish, but the medium body and tame ABV keep it refreshing at all times. Enjoy this throughout the year, in or out of the marsh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pint glass filled from 15 minute old growler fill.

Pours clear, dark red-brown; near opaque with a decent sized but weak beige head.

Lots of sweet caramel malts in the nose but the flavor is dominated by darker roasted malts. Excellent and balanced aftertaste with some coffee and a hint of dark chocolate.

Feel: medium body and carbonation.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, oatmeal, and hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, oatmeal, hint of yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, feel, and blend.

Serving type: on-tap
