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.

A - Pours jet black with a beige head that quickly disappears.

S - Incredible mix of dark and sweet malt, coffee, and vanilla. This is almost so rich it reminds me of a Godiva chocolate.

T - Slight fruit flavor at first, followed by vanilla, coffee, and then the rest just tastes imperial stout-rific. Very sweet and the vanilla comes back in the aftertaste. I would suggest a change of style to stout or imperial stout.

M/D - Mouthfeel was rich and creamy and smooth on the tongue. This is an incredibly drinkable beer. As I said earlier, goes down like candy.

Melted milk chocolate, rum raisins, dark bread. A bit of honey on the nose. Not too sweet and toasty.

Smooth, robust body and medium carbonation. Will drink again if available.

Currently my favorite beer, no doubt. 9 buckaroos for six, money well spent compared to most beer on this planet. On weekends it would be torturous to not have Night Train on hand. Occasionally I am compelled to drive to hudson wi for a case maybe 2 of this art brew. This fine beverage belongs on the top 50 american beer list. I dare you any of you, to forget what you know about the word "porter". I hate porters with the exception of this one that does not deserve such classification. Alcohol is masked. thin head, flavors expertly balanced, composition blends almost seamlessly, difficult to identify individual ingredients. Delicious! How many beers can u say that about?
