Growler poured into glass.

Appearance: Pours dark jet black with a light tan head that rapidly diminishes.

Smell: Coffee, coffee, coffee. And more coffee.

Taste: See above - coffee, coffee, coffee.

Mouthfeel: Leaves a taste like after my morning cup o' premium joe. Goes down smoothly.

Overall: Pretty nice. $8 for the growler is not bad at all.

Served on tap at Stubby's - Brad always has a great tap selection

A - pours black with a nice amount of light chocolate head

S - smell is very coffee forward, the most coffee I've encountered on a nose so far. subtle chocolate malt follows

T - Initially, this tastes like an iced mocha - again tons of coffee up front, along with smooth milk chocolate - then the burbon, oak, and malt backbone make their presence known

M - Very smooth, no alcohol to speak of, maybe a little thin for what I'd expect

O - another excellent bourbon barrel porter from O'so - these guys really do a great job with their bourbon barrel beers. Happy to have had the chance to sample this one!

Thank you Marc for quickly making O'so one of the best breweries in WI and the Midwest.

Night Train is pretty good beer. BB Night Train is even better. BB Coffee Night Train is exceptional. Had this at the Great Taste pre-party and it was so good that I had it a couple times during the Great Taste itself.

a - pour is black with a nice head.

s - wow, this one packs a coffee punch. I remember having a couple of the BB Night Train variations at our table and was able to easily tell which was the coffee by the nose.

t - As I was drinking this, I was comparing it to GI Bourbon County Coffee and CW Brewhouse Coffee....but those are stouts! The bourbon sweetness on top of a very balanced porter, combined with an excellent coffee flavor...superb. Never lacking in flavor. Easily the best porter I've ever had.

m - Again, I couldn't help but think of CW Brewhouse Coffee Stout. They both have such a big flavor, but keep the mouthfeel lighter. This also keeps the ABV lower. Drinkability is so high on this. So much flavor, and yet you feel like you could drink a lot of it...and at 6.7% you can!

o - I'm going to push Marc to produce a lot of this. ;) Coffee Beans were hand roasted by the head brewer, so hopefully he can reproduce what he just did here!
