4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of the best beers that I’ve ever had. Tasted a shot glass of it at the brewpub and was motivated to buy my first growler ever. This is a beer that is everything it sounds like it should be and more. Just wow, wow...wow...To me just a creme brulee espresso bomb in your mouth. There is so little alcohol on the palate that you’d think this isn’t really beer.

Great kuhnhenn offering. Poured from growler into a tulip. Dark pour with tan head. Smells a coffee shop and bakery. Drinks surprising light. Seems dry, taste like a frothy cup of coffee with a little bittering aftertaste. Great imp stout, maybe wish it was a little more body.

Big coffee burnt caramel and sweet creamy sugar nose. Very reminiscent of creme butler. Nice. Dark brown pour with no head. Espresso up front, caramel vanilla and burnt sugar notes. 7_11 vanilla coffee creamer. Nice mix of coffee and vanilla. Sharp carbonation long dry finish.

This one poured a medium brown color with a frothy beige head. Aroma was of milk chocolate, cappucino, light vanilla, and dark roasted coffee. Flavor was sweeter chocolate stout upfront, followed by a huge rush of delishious coffee bitterness. One of my favorite coffee stouts.

Smells like java. Good sense of Indonesia here though it doesn’t quite remind me of Bintang. Bitter, good consistency. some lacing. This undetailed rating another victim of a late night drinking session. Tap at Hopcat.

Definitely a sipper. Heavy malt flavors. Lots of chocolate, toffee, burnt sugars, caramel and dark fruits.

Tap at Hopcat in tulip. Black with a small tan head. Nose is pure creme brulee, very rich, some chocolate and burnt cream. Medium body and very creamy, mixed with a not over the top but intense burnt chocolate flavor. Very good.

At the brewery, black pour, not much head. Aroma of java coffee..taste has some vanilla with the coffee and a little alcohol bite. Tasty.

Poured black. Strong smell of Bourbon with hints of chocolate and cherry. The alcohol burns through at the end. It has a somewhat creamy texture, but also a bit like syrup.

Subtle aroma, great taste, a little sweet, but not too sweet. Clean finish.

Tap @ Barcade for Kuhnhenn event w James and Andy. Dark red-brown pour, murky. Aroma is heavy heavy coffee and flavor is underwhelmingly so. Notes of coffee but heavy booze and heavy tobacco/ash. Smells like a creme brulee dessert but disappointed thereafter.
