COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tidal Series.
A favorite morning stop of ours since we moved into the neighborhood a few years ago is Rook Coffee Roasters of Monmouth County; conveniently located just around the corner from the brewery. They roast and brew their coffees with the same dedication to quality and craftsmanship that we focus on here at Kane. We couldn’t think of a better group of like minded people to work with on a collaborative project. The result is Morning Bell, our imperial milk porter brewed with their dark roast Sumatra coffee. We added a healthy amount of milk sugar to an already complex, dark malt bill to sweeten and balance the bold flavors and roasty bitterness of the coffee. The result of this collaboration is a full bodied porter with big bold flavors and remarkable smoothness.

750mL c&c thanks to Ed5388! Inky pour generates a healthy, beige coffee head. Huge retention. Big lace. Nose is sweeter, some esters, phenols, somewhat chemical with lots of volatiles. Eventually gets some sweet apple. Taste is sweet, lots of grape soda. Palate is chalky, powdery. Finishes a bit lemon acid tart from the coffee.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Jet black color with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium to full body with a roasted coffee character and notes of charred malt and dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Growler courtesy of Dave at Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a deep brown with a thin white head. Lots of thick coffee, sweet chocolate. Medium bodied, lots of chewy coffee right away. Sweet, roast, coffee. Quite tasty.

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor is similar. I get some roasted malt, cream and oat notes in addition to the great chocolate and coffee. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel. Really like this one.

Bottle shared at Paul’s Housewarming Tasting 2013. Pours a deep, dark brown body with nice tan head and lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate, cocoa, delicious coffee roast, lactose and espresso. Mouthfeel is perfect - especially for the porter style, thin-to-medium bodied but not watery, while still displaying great flavors of espresso, milk chocolate, vanilla and a nice earthy roast.
