From 07/27/13 notes. Had this on nitro-pour at the brewery and absolutely loved it.

a - Pours a deep mahogany brown color with one finger of thick medium tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great, just like Guinness with the nitro-pour.

s - Smells of bourbon, oak, toasted coconuts, milk chocolate, roasted malts, light cream, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and burnt malts. Awesome nose; tons of bourbon coming through, as well as chocolate and coconut. Big fan of this nose.

t - Tastes of bourbon, milk chocolate, vanilla, cream, oak, roasted malts, toasted malts, light coconut, light coffee, burnt malts. Taste is great with a lot of bourbon as well, but also has more vanilla to it than the nose did. Less coconut than the nose. Loving the taste as well.

m - Medium body to it and low carbonation. The body is very smooth and creamy, with no heat whatsoever. Awesome mouthfeel, insanely creamy.

o - Overall I loved this beer; I'm a huge fan of Head High and Overhead, and while they are different styles, I think this might be the best beer Kane has done IMO. I liked ANTEAD, but I felt like the bourbon did not come through much in that stout. This is the opposite, as it has a ton of flavor and is very complex, with tons of bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla throughout. More impressively, they do all this at 6.9% ABV (according to their chalkboard). Having this on nitro-pour is just the icing on the cake as it lends itself very well to this beer. Loved it and hoping they bottle this one, and make it routinely.

on tap at the brewery - served on nitro in a Kane tulip

Opaque, blacked out pour with a voluminous one-finger high tanned head resting on top. Head retains nearly throughout the entire 8oz pour, leaving spotty patches of lacing on the glass.

Sweet and warm in the nose with cocoa powder, dark chocolate and oak. Splashes of bourbon, vanilla beans and roasted dark malts.

Kicks off with the familiar Port Omna roastiness with cocoa powder, dark chocolate and dark malts. Lightly sweet with oak, vanilla beans and soft, building warmth. The bourbon barrel character spikes towards the back end, delivering a smack of sweetness and booze, enveloping the creamy malts and chocolate.

Fuller medium body, milder carbonation, ultra creamy and smooth on the tongue. This might be the best barrel-aged offering I've tried from Kane thus far, so I'm excited to see what they do with Morning Bell and other stouts/porters in the future.
