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 couldnt 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.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Re-rate for the bottled version. I like this a lot more. Black with a dark tan head. Nose is chocolatey and roasty. Taste is heavy on the coffee (and Rook is the absolute best btw) but also very sweet and lactic. Palate is smooth with a little carb. This beer is way more impressive bottled, although Im thinking my original draft tasting wasnt well maintained.

(750ml bottle) espresso brown, fine tan bubbles. Nose of old coffee, umami, lactose, copper, briny. Taste of umami, old coffee grounds, very roasty, no real hint of much else as the roast overpowers, medium thick body, old burnt coffee linger.

750, capped. Wow, N--thank you! What an awesome treat. Pours an opaque matte black with a dense and creamy tan head that fades. Big coffee nose, very intensely roasty coffee aromatics. Creamy thick body with moderate carb. Coffee predominates throughout the mid palate without a doubt. Earthy, leathery notes in the background. Long earthy coffee finish.

Johnsense (1555) - - AUG 7, 2016
Black pour, smaller head, medium body with decent lacing. Huge spent coffee grain aroma, fairly bitter. Coffee is a bit more muted in the taste, fresh ground beans, milk, wood, sweet malt. Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Nice.
