Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Milwaukee, 10/8/16. Dark brown, thin fizzy tan head, poor retention. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts,lactose, honey. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, apples, cocoa, honey, a bit of sunflower seed. Medium bodied, creamy. Quite nice. crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
A solid American porter, it is rich, but not overly robust, this brewery has some potential. rosenbergh (11868) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL. BVery (11390) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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.
Bottle. Wow - solid brew from Potosi, truthfully I’m pleasantly surprised. Soft roast with coffee and some mild sweet chocolate. Lighter palate. Good stuff.

12/24/15. 12oz bottle while in IL for Christmas. I kept thinking the box said "Candy Dancer" and that it was going to be a peppermint porter or something, but it’s not. Which is fine by me. Almost black pour under a small tan head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, some fruitiness, light acidity. Smooth flavor, a touch light, hint of coffee and chocolate, caramel, cream. Not bad. Strykzone (7715) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2014
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. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, garnet-tinted cola brown with a short, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla over roasted black and coffee malts.. touches of licorice too.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted chocolate, coffee, and licorice notes at the core.. vanilla and charred roast laced throughout.. finished dry and roasty, with a hit of acidity. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with moderate carbonation.. good balance throughout. This was surprisingly good. ajnepple (7196) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2015
12 oz single bottle into a shaker, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Dark brown appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted/breaded malt, roasted grain and a slight touch of dark fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding hints of coffee, caramel and toffee. Mild malt sweetness balanced by a light to mild bitterness (earthy/roasted) over a medium body. Solid porter overall. wlajwl (7124) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Aroma is dark/roasted malts, coffee and mild toffee. The flavor is roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, mild dark fruit and a mix of acidity and tart in the finish.
