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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’d put this kind of on the line between a porter and a sweet stout. It’s kind of a homely brew, red brown w/ almost no lasting head but it doesn’t taste bad at all. It has a sweet, milk chocolate character, which is why I say it reminds me of a sweet stout, but it doesn’t really have the strong roasted character I’d expect. This is a little bit sticky on the palate for my tastes but otherwise, it’s a pretty good beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice dark brown color, slightly opaque. Soft aroma with mostly sweet notes. Full body with strong crystal malt influence and coffee flavors. Finishes clean for a robust porter.

12 ounce bottle from Woodmans in Beloit. This beer is almost completely black with just a little red. A one finger tan head and a good amount of carbonation floating up to meet it. The aroma is roasted but also some sweeter vinous notes, too. Less roasted notes in the flavor. In the background are bitter citrus hops and they add some brightness. A little vanilla and cocoa. This is quite nice and has a smooth feel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an attractive clear ruby brownish amber. Medium creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolatey, caramel, vanilla, a little cracker, some lactose. Flavor is much the same, more roasty. Medium body. Clean, smooth, great balance. Finish is light toasty, some cracker. A really well-made beer. Best of what ive had from Potosi. Underrated.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
