look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

16oz can poured into a pint glass. No visible canning date.

Pours motor oil black with an enormous chocolate colored head. The head slowly vanishes leaving no lacing and a small ring of head around the glass.

Smell is almost all coconut and vanilla with a hint of chocolate also.

Taste is more coconut and vanilla along with roasted malt and a fudgy molasses flavor.

Feel is a bit thin as expected at 6.6% abv. Still has a fairly full body to it though.

Overall a really great take on a Coconut stout. Certainly not the best Coconut stout I've had but it's a really solid beer for sure.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark brown almost black in color with a 1" head that lasted a while.

Smell: some roasted tones and chocolate is detectable by the nose.

Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee, and some dark bread. Bitterness is moderate here.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy bodied beer. Light crispness to start, smoother at the finish.

Overall: this is a wonderfully balanced and flavorful stout that can be enjoyed more than just one pint.

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.
