Dark brown body, reddish highlights, topped by a creamy tan head. Dense but not thick lacing.
Cafe au lait aroma is highly inviting.
Taste has good chocolate, milk, with maybe some dark mixed in. Coffee follows, with a little cream in it. Oatmeal rolls in next. Finally an earthy hop overlay before all the flavors melt together in the afterglow.
Smooth and light mouthfeel, not heavy, but no holes or prickliness either.
The oatmeal is a really nice touch, raising this brown ale up a notch.
Serving type: growler

On tap at George street alehouse in new Brunswick. Arrives in a pint glass with a finger of foam. Rings of lace coat the glass as I drink.
Aroma is fairly mild but you do get a whiff of citrus hops and pale roasted malt. Flavor is a nice malty brown sweetness with a moderate dose of happy flavor and bitterness. This is nicely balanced with the hops breaking through to announce this is an American style brown. Awesome smooth creamy mouth feel.
Kane is consistently putting out great beers and this is no exception. Maybe a touch more mild than other offerings, but a flawless representation of the style.
Serving type: on-tap
