COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American example of an English style of beer made for the Russian Royals. This ale deep black in color, finally released after being aged for 16 months. Made using large amounts of malt and roasted barley yields the most robust beer we make. Thick coffee like flavor and aroma. This beer is well hopped and finishes bitter. This is a real treat

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Bottled. Opaque dark black. Aroma of anise and licorice. Sweet and thick like oil. Very full bodied. Flavourwise it’s like chocolate cake covered in cocoa and tar with a punch of liqueur. Complex, but too covered in syrup.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
My first new Kuhnhenn since they became famous. Extra thick dark brown. No carbonation and no head. Rich, fudgey, roasty and slightly soapy aroma. Ultra thick, flat body. Very unique blackberry accent amidst all the big malts and subtle roast. Fun beer. Wish I took better notes - there was much more going on I haven’t written about.

(Bottle) Pours a opaque, oily black body with a spare brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and wood with a smooth, silky (dessert-like) mouthfeel that finishes somewhat dry.
