I had this on draught in a pub. It was served in a pint glass at a temperature colder than I would serve it at home. It pours a dark walnut, nearly black with a thin, mocha-colored head and lacing that dissipated quickly. It's aromatic with abundant coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. The taste is a delightful blend of freshly roasted and burnt coffee, along with dark chocolate, roasted malt, nuts, and a hint of sweet caramel. It's rather thin in body with mild but pleasant carbonation and with a moderate 6.6% ABV it is highly drinkable. While it lacks the stunning taste, viscosity, and potency of some of Kane's other dark beers, it offers a terrific combination of taste and drinkability.

On-tap @ Willie McBride's in Branchburg, NJ.

Color is as black as night and opaque with a small dark tan head. Strong coffee, chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. No hops or yeast in the aroma or flavor. This stout is all about the malt! More of the same coffee and chocolate in the flavor with a light sweetness. Medium-full bodied and bold, yet actually quite smooth and clean in the finish. Very nice stout from a brewery that seems to do no wrong.

One of the few dark beers from Kane that didn't blow me away. Its fairly tasty but on the thin side and not nearly as flavorful as Kane's other dark offerings. Maybe my expectation was too high based on ANTEAD, Sunday Brunch and Morning Bell.

From a growler purchased 3 days ago

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a mocha colored head. Recedes to a lite mocha film
S: Smells of roasted malt hints of coffee, cocoa and caramel
T: Roasted coffee malts. Hint of cocoa and burnt sugar
MF: Light carbonation easy drinking. Coffee flavor lingers
O: Great stout. It isn't a double or imperial or coffee bomb. If you are looking for a classic well done stout, you could do a lot worse than this one.

4 oz sampler on tap at the brewery 3/26/15.

L: Midnight black. 1 finger head with poor retention, not much in the way of lacing or a ring.

S: Light roasted coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, and vanilla.

T: Generally follows nose, somewhat muted. Coffee and malts predominate.

F: A bit watery for the style, light to medium bodied, light carbonation.

O: A solid companion to the higher-ABV and thicker coffee bomb Morning Bell. Higher drinkability, but slightly muted taste by comparison.
