From 11/16/13

a - Pours a black color with one inch of dark tan head and low carbonation evident. Looks pretty nice.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, toasted malts, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. Light cream as well. Very nice nose; a decent amount going on and everything smells great.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, burnt malts, toasted malts, and light bitter coffee. A step down from the nose, some bitter notes throughout the taste.

m - Thin, light body and low to moderate carbonation. No heat and easy to drink, but too think for a stout.

o - Overall a decent brown ale. Not my favorite Kane offering but a solid brown ale that could be good for people new to craft beer.

poured from growler into tulip glass

Pours a chestnut brown color with some brighter reddish hues. Thinner tanned head fades out into some spotty lacing with wispy film on top.

Nice roasty, nutty malt character in the nose. Oatmeal with bread crust and light sweetness from dark chocolate.

Nutty and bready up front with a light sweetness. Chocolate and caramel with a decent oatmeal maltiness. Medium backbone, not overly sweet. Finishes a little dry.

Medium body, decent carbonation, pretty smooth and easy on the palate. Another nice beer from Kane - I'm excited to see what's next.
