look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a tap into a mug...served at about 40º.

A=Rich, dark brown...but no head to speak off...what was there was nice, but was rather thin and did not last long.

S=Hints of cocoa and cola.

T=Rather smooth at first--rather sweet, with hints of cocoa. About halfway through, it was reminding me more of a cola than a beer.

M=Very light body for a porter--good for a session beer, but not reminiscent of the style...I was looking for more body.

O=A decent session beer...I originally thought I was getting O'so Night Train and that the waitress was just getting the name wrong...I paired with pasta and Italian sausage and that combo was okay, but not fantastic. I will likely try again if I am looking for a sweeter, lighter session beer. Not quite as good as Wisconsin Brewing's offering, and still a few paces back of GL's Ed Fitz--nice to see, however, that Wisconsin brewers are at least trying to make better porters...and this is now the second Wisconsin porter that I've enjoyed. (996 characters)

poured on tap into Nonic pint at the brewery.

A - Dark, murky cola colored with a thin light brown cap. Minimal lacing.

S - Subtle roasted malts with a light charcoal scent. The faint smokiness comes from the Beach wood smoked malts. Hints of slight coffee and sweet chocolate round it out.

T - Enjoyable dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. A pleasant sweet, light smokiness from the Beach wood smoked malt. This is a very good Porter.

M - Smooth, creamy and fairly full bodied.

O - A solid Porter from K4 that adds to their selection of beer. The smoked malts were and excellent choice. (600 characters)

Was really impressed by this at a free tasting during Jam on Johnson (in the chiropractic office). (98 characters)
