Poured from bottle into 16 oz. nonic. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Small beige head (despite the aggressive pour) with mediocre retention but reasonable lacing around the glass.

Very malt-forward aroma. Roasted malts, cocoa, and grains. Quite a bit of sweet toffee.

The flavor definitely shows the roasted malts. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Not as sweet as the nose with a spicy hoppy finish. Slight lactic-like sourness, but I think that's just the roast playing tricks on my palate.

Medium body and carbonation with a very dry finish. Lightly astringent between the hops and bitter roasted malts

Mudpuppy is enjoyable, but doesn't particularly stand out to me in any way. An above average but not really memorable offering.

A - Black with a creamy tan head that is retained.

S - Espresso with a bit of herbal/soapy hops.

T - espresso with a hint of lactic.

M - Surprisingly clean and light. Still somewhat heavy but lighter than most porters. Finishes wet.

O - Very smooth. Not overly complex but very good.
