The aroma hits of creamy coffee, milk chocolate.

The flavor hits again of milk chocolate, medium roasted malt, more creaminess, a strong flavor of high quality coffee flavor throughout with some nuttiness and a roasty finish.

The use of coffee in this beer is incredible. (273 characters)

Poured from a 32 ounce growler into a mini-snifter.

After a week-long journey from the east coast, I was nervous the carbonation would be gone, but this held up. There's a beautiful frothy, chewy khaki head, extensive lacing, and a thick film of lace that settles over the body. The body is black as coffee. 5

The coffee aroma is tremendous and hit my nose on the pour and wafts to my nose as I take these notes. Even from a distance I'm detecting sweet, milky caramel and chocolate and a coffee bean smell. The coffee has a bit of a roasted aroma and seems pretty stiff like I may get a jolt from this brew. Closer examination offers some spicy bean notes too. 4.25

Coffee is the dominant party here. Dark roasted-like flavors and some of the bitter flavor of coffee straight. Mid-palate brings creamier and sweeter elements, caramel, sweet milk and toffee before a lingering dark chocolate flavor on the finish. I keep noticing hints of funk, earthiness and dirty sock that come and go, that offer an interesting side to the beer. Not bad really, just different. 4

Excellent balance here. Roasted, sweet and creamy, and moderately bitter at the finish. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation a tad beneath that, reinforcing the creaminess. 4.25

This is good. Very good. I really enjoy it. I'm a bit torn on the taste as there are definitely occasional moments of intense earthiness, but otherwise this was great. (1,415 characters)

Newest corked and caged from Kane Brewing, white label with in collaboration with Rook Coffee roasters and their logo on it as well. Really elegant bottle. Poured into a snifter straight from the fridge.

A: Pours a rather large head with an average pour. Uneven mocha head with some cheese holes throughout, jet black. Nice looking porter.

S: Cofee, coffee, coffee. Some dark chocolate and roasted malts. Exactly what you'd expect from a coffee porter. Really heavy on the coffee.

T: Coffee once again. About as coffee forward as I've ever tasted. Simply delicious. Love the fresh bean taste. Almost like you ran a porter through a french press.

M: Creamy. I think the lactate suits this nicely. Almost like the cream in the coffee.

O: If you have to, trade for it. Kane doesn't disappoint and this is no different. (822 characters)
