On draft in a goblet

Just about jet black, with tan head. Good lacing. Big chocolate and coffee aroma. Mildly bitter, moderately roasty, nice dark cocoa flavors. Medium bodied, but coats the mouth, sticky.

8 oz. pour at the brewery.

Near-black with a short-lived off-white head.

The nose is rich iced coffee, and the taste follows. Mocha, vanilla, licorice, root beer, maple syrup. Super drinkable for 9%. Like a roasty vanilla latte.

Mouthfeel is medium. Again, light for the ABV.

Overall, one of the best porters I've had.

This poured out as a nice rich black color with a brown head on top. The smell has coffee galore spewing from it, but its also got hints of some kind of creaminess too. Really interesting. The taste is loaded with coffee and some sweetness in the finish. The feel was pretty dense but very smooth. Overall I really enjoyed this, it was perfect even having it the morning after a rather large tasting the night before.

Super smooth coffee porter, with a nice smooth balance. Coffee flavor itself has a very nice medium roast quality. The 9.2 ABV could easily get lost here. This is my first offering from Kane's and I am eager to try more.
