look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a nice black color with good light brown head, leaves lacing

Smell: Nice bouquet of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate

Taste: Again, nice roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, decent earthy hop flavors

Mouthfeel: Full body, good carbonation

Overall: Fantastic Imperial Stout from Kane. Drinks easy, no signs of the high alcohol content. This could easily go up against the big names in imperial stouts

From a growler in a snifter glass.

A- Crude oil black in color with a 1f taupe-tan colored head. Heavy lacing completely coats the inside of the glass, falling off very slowly. Hearty look.

S- Coffee and chocolates, sweet and bitter. Molasses perhaps. Roasted malts pushed to the limit of smokiness. No alcohol presence, very pleasant.

T- Chocolaty with coffee and caramel. Some nuttiness and earthy hops. Roasted characteristics.

M- Velvety smooth. No booze burn. Creamy.

O- The most drinker friendly high abv stout that I've had. There's no sign of its 12% abv. And it looks, smells and tastes great.

From 11/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at the brewery in Ocean. 2012 vintage.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice for a big stout.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, dark chocolates, light sweet chocolate, and bitter malts. Nice roasty notes with some good coffee up front and bitter chocolate as well.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, toasted malts, burnt malts, nuts, and bitter dark chocolate. More sweet chocolate than the nose and some vanilla, with a lot of roasted notes again. A slight step up from the nose for me.

m - Full bodied stout and low carbonation. Crazy smooth and creamy, and no heat at all. Awesome mouthfeel.

o - Overall I'm not sure how this was a year ago but it is tasting fantastic right now. Very roasty, with a lot of coffee in the nose and a lot of sweet chocolate in the taste. Very drinkable for the ABV I loved it; hoping they bottle this one eventually.
