The bottle I purchased didn't say Lost Arrow on it. It just said Porter. Not sure if it's just a name change.
When poured, it produced a 2 finger beige head. Left very little lacing. Beer color is a non-translucent mahogany.
The aroma was faint, but of roasted malts, caramel, and biscuit.
The taste was similar, but a little dark, and bitter chocolate thrown in. Slightly lighter bodied than most porters. Medium carbonation.
This is an okay beer, but could use some improvement.

This is a nice malty low abv example of a porter... coffee tones come in nicely along with the rich smokey malt tones.. smells of coffee as the pour happends...if only there was sweeter tones and higher abv this would be perfect.... love rush rivers beers need to try some of their bombers....

A - About as dark as it gets for a porter with a slight ruber glow. A khaki 2 finger head whose initial presence softened quickly, but yet remained at .5 finger for quite some time. Lacing that remains
S - Sweet hazelnut smell. Slight coffee and black liquorish aroma
T - Roasted Chocolate and hazelnut taste that remains in your mouth.
M - Fairly light body for a porter with a medium sweetness that remains. Low carbonation
O - I really liked this for the roastiness.

Lost arrow pours a dark caramel color with a tower cap of foam. The color thins toward the edges to classic brown ale. The aroma is a great mixture of chocolate, espresso, wet malt, caramel, hard candy, and earthy the hops. The aroma is inviting and draws the imbiber in. Medium bodied, smooth and contiguous. The flavor doesn't quite live up to the hype of the aroma, but is still quite enjoyable. Cocoa and just a touch of bitterness leave the palate dry. Overall a nice beer.

This is my first Rush River review so I’m super excited. In all, Rush River only has about a dozen beer offerings so they are a pretty small and precise brewing operation located in River Falls, WI. Not really sure what to expect as you never really hear anyone says anything good or bad about their beer.
It pours a dark brown color with a beige head that lingers around for a while. It has a mild robust scent of roasted malts, coffee, toffee, and caramel malts. Nothing exciting here, just your classic porter scent.
The taste has elements of a heavy beer, but it still drinks rather light. There is a little bit of roasted malts and coffee in the taste but far from being bold. It finishes with a chalky, coffee after taste. This is a good beginner porter to see if you like the style, but it really could be more robust, flavorful, and thicker in texture.
Porters certainly aren't the most popular beer out there. Maybe it’s because it’s just really hard to make a good porter? This was a pretty good attempt by Rush River but as I said, it has room for improvement. It has great drink-ability, it’s just lacking that “wow” factor taste wise.

Porter was poured out of the bottle and into a pint glass. Dark and warm in colour with a chocolate, roasted nose to it. Tasted of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee, with minimal yet present hops. No distinctive or lingering aftertastes.
Would I buy this beer again? Probaby.
