look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Growler from Free Bridge Liquors.

Classic black body with ruby highlights. Topped by a level two fingers of medium tan foam. Leaves a nice film on the glass.

Big dark coffee aroma, with some chocolate lurking about with some deep sniffs.

Taste follows the nose. Big dark roast coffee is chased down the tongue by rich chocolate syrup. Hops slowly rise, tickle, and nip.

Slick rich mouthfeel could be just a little more chewy.

A well done American Stout I look forward to revisiting.

Poured from a growler filled at Cranbury BuyRite into a Kane Belgian style tulip glass.

Pours an opaque black. Bubbles rise to the top to make a wonderful thick creamy tan head. Leaves nice lacing.

Aroma gives off strong roasted coffee upfront. Some bitter and sweet chocolate and a nice toastyness in the nose.

All of that wonderful aroma comes out full force in the taste. Some sweet chocolate notes upfront that give way to nicely roasted coffee and finishes with bitter chocolate and sweet toasted caramel. Finishes dry with a nice toastyness lingering on the pallet keeping you coming back for more.

Mouthfeel is excellent not heavy and definitely not watery in the slightest, a nice full body. Spot on carbonation. Extremely smooth and drinkable, a little creamy on the pallet.

Overall this is another awesome brew from the folks at Kane. I am glad I finally got the chance to try this somewhat elusive stout after always running into just kicked kegs and changed taps. I have tried most of their offerings, and can't wait to try more as these guys really start to develop.

Pours a bubbly black color, with a solid thick light brown head.

Aromas begin with coffee and a hint of dark liquorice. Chocolate emerges next, both milk and dark bitter baker's version.

The tastes begin big and bold with some coffee and dark chocolate. There is a nice sweet caramel and bready malt balance, with a toasty finish. Little to no hops are detectable which is different for many American stouts nowadays, but I really appreciate it because I dislike intense hops in dark beers.

The mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Nice mouthfeel for such a low ABV stout.

My second offering from Kane and both have been winners. Nothing too crazy amazing about this beer but it is super solid and plenty of flavor for a lower ABV stout. Looking forward to sampling more from this up-and-coming local brewery.

on tap in the tasting room

Pours an opaque black color with a nice tuft of toasted brown head resting on top. Retains nicely with some wispy film resting on top and some spots of lacing left behind.

Roasty and inviting in the nose with a decent amount of roasted coffee beans. Slightly nutty with some chocolate and malted sweetness.

Nice malt character right up front, supported by dark roasted coffee and light bitterness. Some chocolate sweetness mixes into the profile and meshes nicely with the backbone. Full and roasty towards the finish which lingers on the tongue for a moment.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and smooth on the tongue. Drinks really nice with a nice balance of flavor - this is what I'm coming to expect from Kane at this point.

Poured out of a growler I had filled at the brewery yesterday. The nearly black liquid poured beautifully into my Kane stemmed tulip glass. It didn't look like it was going to build a head as I poured, but once I stopped, the carbonation created a dense, creamy head on top with the classic mocha color. As it receded it left behind a coating lace.

The wonderful aroma rising up to greet your nose would make you think it was brewed with chocolate, but Mike Kane made no mention of that as he filled the growler. He did mention that the name of the beer is in honor of the town in Ireland from whence his family hails. So this is his offering for Saint Patrick's Day. There is also a strong coffee sense, one of the styles of coffee with a nice bitter roast to it, but not quite espresso. You also get a moderate sweetness and burnt toast. Quite sensational.

All those wonderful aromas come through in the taste. So often a beer's flavor cannot live up to the promise that it's aroma makes, but this one surely does. The chocolate flavor takes a backseat to the coffee and it tastes a little sweeter than it smells, but not overly so. But when it warms the chocolate reasserts itself.

Silky, with no ash to it whatsoever, and leaning to the lighter side of full-bodied or the heavier side of medium-bodied.

I continue to be impressed by the work that Mike and company do in Ocean Township. First, Head High blew everyone away and quickly became a much sought after IPA. If they decide to get this one out there and make a year-round offering, I think it will get just as popular.
