This is my favorite coffee porter. In my mind, it beats out victory at seas (which is also delicious don't get me wrong). Dark roasted coffee over an imperial porter - nice, heavy, medium-heavy mouthfeel. Kane has changed morning bell a couple of times I had one of the first few batches when it was 11%. Have a bottle I will be opening soon that is... 9%?

Rich semi sweet aroma this porter is amazing! pours a beautiful head with a deep dark color. The taste is amazing! and excellent porter. The mouthfeel is perfect, what an incredible beer. Leave's a wonderful aftertaste this beer could be drank all night long. The coffee is subtle but still recognizable. If you like porters this masterpiece is waiting for you. I really like this and would purchase again. Bravo Kane Brewing! Bravo!

Bottom Line: Amazing Porter that stands tall against all opposition.

A - Black as night, somewhat "flat" with a little ring of caramel carbonation and minimal head formation. True to its porter routes the pour isn't extremely viscous. Malty lacing, clear and soapy looking, slides down the glass as you drink.

S - This smells like an amazing iced coffee. I could smell this all day, it's amazingly aromatic. Roasted malt notes merge with big coffee aromas from that amazing local Rook coffee. Touch of sweetness comes through rounding any harshness off the aroma and letting you know that lactose sugar is there.

T - Huge roasted malt and coffee flavor rounds out smoothly with some earthy, smokey and char notes all the way through. Lactose sugars provide a blanket of sweetness that rides all the way through. Alcohol is completely hidden behind all these big flavors even at 9.2%.

M - Smooth, creamy and palate coating. Lower carbonation and medium body.

O - I hope they keep this around this time. Amazing beer that blends sweetness and roasted bitterness perfectly. This might be the best coffee beer I've ever had, so far.
