COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Try one and any misconception about dark beers being heavy or harsh will fade away quicker than the beer in your glass. Night Owl Cream Porter is everything the name conjures up in your mind. Through the use of just the right ingredients and processes, we have created a beer with a very creamy, almost silky texture. This beer is black to the point of being opaque, with a full, rich body and pleasant smokiness from the load of roasted malt in the grain bill. The hops take a backseat in this beer, but they offer enough bitterness to offset the malt sweetness.

Draft at Essex. Dark Brown black pour with a thin milk chocolate head. Nose is sweet chocolate and dark malt. Taste is the same.

1/6/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens! Go Noles! Black pour with a small khaki head that fades to a frothy ring and doesn’t lace. Nice aroma, creamy chocolate, light roast, mild coffee, some bready maltiness - really digging it. Good but somewhat disappointing flavor. Light coffee, cream, and chocolate, a little dusty, a hint of metal, too watery in taste. Surprisingly nice thick, slick mouthfeel, despite the flavor. Enjoyed this one, all in all.

Good roasted chocolate aroma. Dark brown appearance with a nice head and lacing. Flavor was of sweet chocolate malt and coffee. Sorta thick, with slight bitterness at end.

Growler at a work picnic. I liked it. Rich, robust, smoky, roasted notes. A very full bodied porter, though with cream in the name, I expected a creamier feel to it. Nice.
