Central Waters "Mud Puppy Porter"
Central Waters Brewing Company - Amherst, Wisconsin USA
Porter (ABV 5.5%)

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

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.
