Dark chocolate brown pour with a minute cap of off white foam.  Served slightly chilled.  Opaque.  Huge sweet bourbon notes in the front of the nose. Malt for days, lots of caramel, bourbon, vanilla and some wood. Flavors were slightly boozy, full of bourbon and vanilla sweetness. Not sure if the barrel aging toned the overall sweetness down on this one but this was much better than the original. Much more drinkable and well rounded. Syrupy and thick mouthfeel, light but present carbonation(LA). Top notch and up there with angels share, if not better.  Paired with a La Casita Criolla from Tatuaje.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin lt mocha head. Aroma has significant dark fruit and candied fruit...fig...mild bourbony notes. Flavor has layers of dark and candied fruit, roasty malts, mild chocolate, and smooth bourbon...caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a bourbony finish that has mild dark fruit and warms with lt vanilla.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 2011 Vintage. Poured into snifter. Deep dark brown pour with no head. Amazing bourbon aroma. Smells incredibly sweet and malty. Incredibly smooth bourbon taste that warms all the way to the finish. Very sticky mouthfeel. Other tastes I pick up are butterscotch, plums, cherries, and molasses. Very little alcohol burn at the end. Love Kuhnhenn’s and love this beer! Re-rate 6/5/13 - I’ve had this numerous times now with different vintages. So far, the older the better. Fresh bottles are an assault on the senses. Overpowering booziness and bourbon. Older vintages really mellow out and become much more smooth and malty. My one issue is that the carbonation seems to be gone after about a year or so. Other than that, a two or three year old bottle of this is one of the best sippers out there.

Johnsense (943) - - MAR 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Had both on tap at Kuhnhenn and a bottle at home. Dark brown with a finger of head. Big gobs of lace. Aroma of bourbon, cherry, candy, dark caramel, slight booze. Complex taste of candied dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla, dark toffee, raisin, wood. Some alcohol warming but the barrle is integrated well without dominating this beer. A sipper and one i’ll be cellaring.

2011 bottle 13.5% abv. on the label through trade. Pour has a dark earthy brown color with a touch of tan fizzy head that did not stay around long. Aroma has mild oxidation, vanilla, some bourbon, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some dust. Mouth feel is hefty and sticky with little carbonation but there is some kicking around. Flavor brings on more of the old ale, sticky malt, bourbon, mellow wood, dark fruit, sweetness, mild bitterness, and chocolate. Wow, this is hot and after sitting in the glass for a bit has not killed it back. Super sipper type beer that took some time to get through. Glad they put this in a 12 ounce bottle.

12 fl oz bottle thanks to Clyx!
Sampled on March 16, 2012
Cloudy brown color, very small brown head. Raissin, chocolate, alcohol scent, some wood. Chocolate, raissin, alcohol taste. Dry wood and alcohol aftertaste. Warming alcohol, tounge burning at first. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
At first way to evident alcohol, though it does tone down with a few more sips, gets more easy to drink. With the dissapearing alcohol, the wood and bourbon comes through stornger and sort of dominates too much for my taste. Very nice, though if it was pushed down to perhaps 11% ABV or so might fit my taste better.

Bottle pours a really dark brown next to no head. Tastes smells of bourbon oak prune booze soy sauce. medium sweetness, lightly bitter, salty, medium body, thick feel, soft carbonation, Freaking awesome beer would love to have lots of these in stock. The flow of all the flavored mix do well with each. Great freaking beer. Wow.
