On tap at Barcade Jersey City at the 2nd Anniversary Party. I got the first pour of this keg, and its unfiltered nature came through strong with a cloudy, brown/black pour with a dark brown head. Aroma was dark chocolate and coffee toastyness. Attack was smooth and solid, well-backed bitterness with malt and with some well-placed hops. Big, full mouthfeel, smooth chocolate finish. Wow! I’m a big fan of this one.

On tap at Barcade Jersey City, clean lines. Kane’s first anniversary party. Beer pours black, with slight head retention. Aroma is toasted malt and alcohol. Taste is sharper than expected, with a full body but with some more-sour-than-needed edges. Solid beer, still; just missing something - perhaps too little flavor to balance out the ABV.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 Cask at Cork City. Dark brown pour with a creamy brown head and heavy lacing. Dark malts, some roast, a bit of nutty type flavoring, spice notes and a bit of booze. Rather dry, fairly heavy malty but not really at all sweet. Long, dry finish. Fairly strong heart. Interesting, strong. j12601 (13472) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2015

Dmac handing off the 32 oz. pill bottle to Willrunforbeer, thanks for the share, nice stout! Pitch black with a slow deducing head. Aroma has a huge roasty character. Flavor is mild roasted coffee, charred malts, mild anise with a bitter coffee/ hops character to help balance the roasted malts. Mouthfeel is nice and full with a dry roasted texture.
