12 oz. loose bottle, $1.50 @ Woodman’s. A nice malty smell when opened and poured. Sweet aroma with slight burn of coffee malt. Dark body with faint red highlights under a light tan head. Taste is not quite up to the aroma, but it’s good. Some roast malt bitterness, but a warming thread of alcohol. I can find a nice hop bitterness once the roast malt goes past me. Right kind of carbonation to let bubble bring the hops over the tongue to the back palate. Maybe too much coffee for my taste, but everything else was just fine.

O’so Night Train Porter is #winning. Sorry for the pop culture reference. Got this across the border in Kenosha and it’s a shame that it’s not sold in Chicago. Pours BLACK, with a thin, tan head. Aroma strong in dark chocolate. Taste is robust and heavy in dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Dry finish with a wonderful mocha aftertaste. Thick and creamy on the palate. Fizzy and bitter. Overall, O’so puts forth a fantastic Porter and a definite buy next run up north.

12oz bottle, poured with a nice tan lacing, very roasty aroma, coffee, very malty. A very robust flavor, a sticky sweet maple like taste. Very full bodied, rich, this is a very nice porter.

Pours deep brownish black with nice lasting tan head, a nice looking beer. Why I waited so long to try this I don’t know. Aroma has roasted malt, dark fruit, some burnt caramel, toast. Taste is roasty and bitter, with chocolate, some dark fruit, and some bready, burnt tastes, finishing dry and bitter. Very nice porter.

http://reardenbrewing.com/?p=103 If This Beer Was a Celebrity: It would be Ving Rhames in Pulp Fiction. Notes: I am willing to admit that my love for Night Train is kind of what got me into the craft beer world to begin with. I was on a business trip in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a coworker and I stumbled into The Eatery on Fallwell for some recovery food and a Bloody Mary. The bartender offered a beer back of Night Train and I was hooked. O’SO says, among other things, that Night Train is Chewy and I can tell you for a fact that is the perfect way to describe the beer. If this beer was a steak it would be the 54oz challange steak from Texas your buddy told you about. While O’SO is a truly immense beer in flavor it does not feel as heavy as many strong porters do and its drinkability makes it a stong choice for nights when you want to get the party started right. Last but not least a word of warning. At 7% Night Train has a sneaky way of making you feel like you are faster than a locamotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Best enjoyed as a beer back to a Bloody Mary with Pepper Jack cheese and a piece of jerky in it from the Eatery on Fallwell, Milwaukee, WI. One down 364 to go.

I’ve had enough of this that it’s time I finally rate it. Also, it’s the first of a marathon of 365 different beers in 365 days. Take that, liver. From the bottle, pours black with a solid tan foamy head. Aroma is of coffee and dark chocolate, and some slight anger. Taste is similar, with flavors of espresso, chocolate, a hint of alcohol, some freezer-burned chocolate, a light bitterness throughout, very creamy but not too thick. A very solid beer, definitely worth trying if you’re a dark beer fan.

Thanks to Secret Santa for this. Pours a deep dark brown with a dark brown foamy head. Aroma is deep roasted malts, dark chocolates and a shade of smoke. Taste is full bodied, chewy, roasted malts. Slight smoke in the aftertaste and dark chocolates lie on the tongue. Nice beer .

12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Madison Ar: Not as rich of a roast as I was expecting on this one. A bit of coffee, but more of a medium roast aroma than a dark roast aroma. Ap: Pours a deep brown-black with a 3/4" pillowy light cinnamon head. Very nice lace as well. T: Medium malt sweetness up front, again with a medium roast flavor. Significant hop bitterness on the finish. P: A bit over-carbonated for my preference, medium body. O: This is decent, but not anything special.
