12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new beer to me from O'so Brewing Company, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a very thick dark mahogany color; nearly opaque in the glass with just a bit of cola brown showing through when held to the light. A little less than a finger of tan foam head that recedes quickly. Leaves behind some nice strands of lacing.
S - The smell is kind of light, but is pleasant enough for what it is. Mild roast, cream, milk chocolate, vanilla, a hint of yeast presence, and some lactose. Very mild alcohol presence is noted.
T - Taste follows the nose - milky chocolate, cream, vanilla, coffee bean, roastiness.
M - The mouthfeel is silky smooth and creamy. Goes down easy. Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall, a nice American Porter from O'so Brewing. I would love to see what the barrel aged version of this beer would be like, as it seems like a lively contender. A delicious, smooth, and creamy beer on it's own though. Recommended.
O'so Brewing Night Train ---4/5.

Pours a dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, yeast, hint of oatmeal, slight toffee, hops, hint of pale malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable bitterness from the roasted malt and a warmth from the alcohol, but neither are overpowering. Tastes of sweet malt, slight toffee, hops, slight yeast, slight alcohol, and biscuit. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.
