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

Appearance: Nice brown color, good head, leaves lacing

Smell: Dominated by roasted malts

Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good, but this is a bit more like a stout. Not the most balanced flavor wise, drift wood (BA version of this) is much better and more balanced

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.
