4.24/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a beautiful black pour with a full 2 fingers of dark tan head, excellent lacing and head dissipation. this is probably the nicest looking beer i've ever poured from a growler. the wonderful coffee and chocolate aromas combine to make one hell of an amazing smelling beer. further scents of toasted grains and grassy hops. the flavor is nice and bitter up front of hops, then of black coffee.. then a sweet chocolatey flavor shines through, and finishes again on a bitter dark chocolate/roasted grain note. medium body with a thick creamyness to it that separates it from all other porters. nicely carbonated.

this is a hell of a beer. you can't taste the high abv, you can't even tell this is a porter because it drinks like a stout (a good thing, since the majority of porters are always too thin). definitely recommended.

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.

Tasting notes from last night at Cork City in Hoboken, NJ. Draft.

A: Opaque brown with a beige head that settles to a thin veil of foam. Some lacing.

S: Coffee, coffee, coffee.

T: Strong overtones of coffee. Modestly bitter. A hint of chocolate. Mocha. Some sweeter notes on the finish including vanilla, birch beer.

M: Round and smooth. Minimal carbonation.

D: Extremely drinkable at 9%. No hint of booze. One of the more coffee forward porters I've tasted. Absolutely delicious.
