Dark and stormy, high gravity (7.2%) porter with Stout tendencies. IBU's at 49 make a difference. Chocolate, cherry notes, creamy, reminds me of melted Cherry Garcia Ice cream, with a major hop infusion (yes, I've had melted Cherry Garcia before). Nice balanced, malt to hops.

Not much head, and what showed up didn't stick around, so probly not much protein in the mix for you fitness nuts, but overall, just short of outstanding beer.

Add CO2 and it may just cover all the bases.

A: Great black appearance. Perfect for those who love stouts.

S: Definitely strong scent of chocolate and some nutty and coffee notes. A slight hint of caramel. It smells like a dessert.

T: Tastes like it smells. It tastes like a chocolate cookie with a coffee for a side. Absolutely lovely if you love coffee stouts.

M: Smooth and goes down easily. Perfect.

O: The aftertaste is pleasant. I cannot imagine a better beer for a stout lover like myself.

Night Train pours a black color with a small lacing head. Their is a rosted dry malty aroma, with hints of coffee. The taste has a nice strong roasted taste, with just hints of coffee, finishes with a nice bitterness, floral hops come through at the end. Nice full flavors, and good body. Overall a very nice tasty roasty porter.

12oz bottle, pours dark brown with a thinner beige head that holds excellent retention. Aromas are sweet with cocoa and roasted barley. Bold flavors, sweet but roasty, heavy on the cocoa notes, roasted barley, caramel, earth, tobacco leaf. Mouth-feel is super creamy, medium body, ample carbonation. Overall, great American Porter. I would buy this one again.
