2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Looks like a glass of Coke.
Mild bready malty aroma with dark bread and mild hops.
Sweet malty flavour with mild roastiness, some bread and some sweetness. Sweetness makes this a bit unpleasant.

Pours very dark brown with small initial head that never goes away, and great lacing. Aroma is sweet vanilla with a some chocolate and light roasted coffee and sweet breads. Taste is rich caramel up front into milk chocolate and nutty, earthy, roasted malts. Aftertaste is roasted coffee with no bitterness. Palate is soft and smooth with some carbonation. A really tasty, easy drinking porter with some dimension and good aftertaste.

Bottle. Wow - solid brew from Potosi, truthfully I’m pleasantly surprised. Soft roast with coffee and some mild sweet chocolate. Lighter palate. Good stuff.

This is a beer that you can drink while enjoying some good tunes, and if you fall asleep and your beer has become warm it also tastes good that way as well.

On tap at 8th Street Ale House. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy thin tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, oatmeal and light coffee. Creamy body tastes of dark malts, chocolate, coffee and mild dark fruits. A tad thin but decent.

This is a surprisingly great porter..dark dark body, nice mocha colored lacing...lots of coffee in both the nose and flavor, combined with some burnt Malta and tailing off to a milk chocolate finish...very smooth body...just good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque walnut brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is malty sweet with a bit of vanilla and roasted coffee. Flavor is dark roasted coffee and malt with a slight nutty sweetness. Finish is a short burst of light hops bitterness and almost charred malt. Medium bodied and creamy on the palate with a nice tingle of carbonation. A little shallow for a porter but still a very nice nice drink.
