COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Pours a pitch black with no head. Aroma is coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Flavor is much more complex and ultimately, fantastic.

Old backlogged ratting. Coffee has been the best of the barrel aged treatments that I have had. Can’t wait to try more.

Draft at the Malt House, during the 1st annual Madison Craft Beer Week. Deep opaque brown-black, some caramel red corners. Foamy off-white head. The coffee comes through strong in the aroma, letting you know this is a different creature. Soft cask carbonation, very creamy and smooth. Lots of roasty chocolate tones. An excellent Coffee Porter, the mellowed carbonation lets the coffee and chocolate shine. Really spot on, excellent.

Thank you Marc for quickly making O’so one of the best breweries in WI and the Midwest. Night Train is pretty good beer. BB Night Train is even better. BB Coffee Night Train is exceptional. Had this at the Great Taste pre-party and it was so good that I had it a couple times during the Great Taste itself. a - pour is black with a nice head. s - wow, this one packs a coffee punch. I remember having a couple of the BB Night Train variations at our table and was able to easily tell which was the coffee by the nose. t - As I was drinking this, I was comparing it to GI Bourbon County Coffee and CW Brewhouse Coffee....but those are stouts! The bourbon sweetness on top of a very balanced porter, combined with an excellent coffee flavor...superb. Never lacking in flavor. Easily the best porter I’ve ever had. m - Again, I couldn’t help but think of CW Brewhouse Coffee Stout. They both have such a big flavor, but keep the mouthfeel lighter. This also keeps the ABV lower. Drinkability is so high on this. So much flavor, and yet you feel like you could drink a lot of it...and at 6.7% you can! o - I’m going to push Marc to produce a lot of this. ;) Coffee Beans were hand roasted by the head brewer, so hopefully he can reproduce what he just did here!

On tap at Tornado Steakhouse. Poured deep brown with not much off-white head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet cold toddy and some chocolate over a meatier malt base.. I love coffee, and this presented itself well. The flavor found tangy bourbon throughout that wasn’t so evident on the nose.. dry-roasted coffee at the core, but too sweet.. sharper finish with a lot of sharp, astringent barrel. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. grainy with a lot of roast.. OK flow.. this didn’t come together as well as I hoped.
