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.

I found this single 12oz brown bottle at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL as part of a build- your-own six pack for $9.99, making them $1.67 each. No freshness date.

The beer poured a super dark brown color with a 1-finger khaki colored head that lasted a few minutes and left lots of good lacing.

Roasted malt and chocolate aroma.

Toasted malt and chocolate are the main flavors, but there is also a slight tartness to it along with a mild but pleasant bitterness.

Smooth and creamy. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. I loved the mouthfeel.

Simple, but a pretty good porter.
