Share This Review

Night Swim is an American Porter brewed by Coppertail Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a mug from a bottle.


Pours an opaque mahogany with a two-finger thick head of mocha foam. Unfortunately, no lacing is left on the glass.


The aroma is faint with a scent of roast malt.

The smoky palate follows the nose with a taste of roast malt that’s akin to burnt coffee. The roast flavor is backed by a mild sweetness of dark chocolate. There’s a piney hops presence throughout but it’s not overpowering.


The feel has a medium body with low carbonation that makes for smooth and easy drinking.


Night Swim is a well-made brew but not particularly special.

    1. That number is just an estimate. The brewery hasn’t provided the actual amount so the number provided is a ballpark figure.
