Pours brown as the bottle with nice gleeming ornage amber highlights. Settles darker brown with mahogany edgings. Thin tan cap with small peppered spots of lacing and a bit of residue glazing the glass.

Aroma is quite nice as a good portion of cocoa and blackened maltyness escapes first then hints to cold pressed coffee and peppery touches. Smells like what a good porter should.

Solid taster of a porter here. Great body and tone as its smoothness it matched well with a slight crisp carbonation that travels down the tracks on a well rounded engine of blackness and dark chocolate sweetness. A bit of smoke, a touch of burnt coffee, and a pinch of pepper nearer the caboose. Dryish finish lingers late with burnt grains and leftover black stuff. Very solid.

Smooth but gripping textured in tone/carbonation and a body that sits just above medium. Has some nice layers and subtle complexity to it that really holds its own within its character. Sweet, blackened, chocolate, coffee, peppy, dry, yummy.

O'so can be proud of this one. By far the top of the line for their brews to this point. Hopefully some improvement on others in their line and new ones yet to be placed to the lips will be as good as the Night Train.
