Tried at the brewery while passing through on a hunting trip. I'm fond of darker beers and this one failed to disappoint. Has the makings of a great beer, as Night Train by itself is delicious. The O'so team is passionate about beer and decided to tweak the well-understood Night Train recipe to come up with something new. Congratulations -- it's fantastic!

Late 2014 release

This is a "tap" review. Bottle version goes down at least 2/3 of a point overall. On tap: Creamy, good mouthfeel, great balanced bourbon stout flavors. In a bottle: thin-ish almost "separated" flavor. - just doesn't come together as well

Barrel Aged Night Train

Enjoyed on Tap at Benno's. This was served in a 10 oz glass, and was pretty well chilled.

A) Even with the lighting what it was in the bar, I would say this was a very dark brown brew. There was a thin tan head, that decided to stick around. No lacing noted...

S) A fair amount of roasted malt, coffee, a little vanilla sweetness, and a touch of the bourbon. The aroma intensified a bit on the last few sips, so I really enjoyed it more as it warmed up.

T) Regular Night Train really hits you with a coffee upfront. The coffee is definitely noted here as well, but there is no mistaking the bourbon barrel. A hint of chocolate and a little bit of vanilla. I was pretty surprised at the ABV of this beer, which is only a tick higher than regular Night Train.

M) Perhaps a bit thin for my liking but that is mostly made up for by the decent flavors. Again, better as it warms up.

O) I think Night Train might be my favorite O'so offering, so I was really looking forward to trying the barrel aged version. I was not disappointed, but still feel that I am somewhat partial to the original. Definitely worth a try...
