[12oz bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep hazy brown from the pour. Small sample saved for me thanks to Ken via Craig Garvie. Big bourbon aromas, molasses and thick sugar notes. Bourbon on the flavour as well, along with dark fruit, enormous sweetness and lots of dark molasses toffee. Despite this, itís quite well balanced Ė the bourbon flavours are intense but nothing really dominates in a bad way. I just donít like bourbon beers Ė this is one of the nicer Iíve had, but the style just isnít my thing [15042011]

2010 12oz Bottle. Thanks so much Sean! I never thought Iíd ever get to try this beer! Wow, itís been a long time since Iíve had one of these monster booze, malt, barrel, oxidation bombs. This has those lovely caramelized fringes and dried fruit in the nose. Almost pipe tobacco-like, almost. Warm booze brings the palate up and then Iím hit with a solid thwack of intense vanilla (thanks, barrel), cool cream, and oxidation perfectly characteristic of the style. My last few experiences with Kuhnhenn were incredibly underwhelming, so I kept my expectations low and have been pleasantly surprised. This is well melded and pretty damn nice.

Cheers to Ken for sharing ... dark brown ... sweet bourbon toffee malt ... juicy malt nose .... heavy and sweet toffee malt .. huge bourbon ... good roast ... sweet vanilla but way to much bourbon for me again... ie come more and more to realise that bourbon barrel stuff is usually to heavy Bourbon for me

Bottle shared by Amyliz4 last night. Thanks Amy. Beer is served in a snifter. Beer is dark brown with a healthy haze, almost no head, some legs on the glass, carbonation low. Looks pretty good. Aroma is complex and strong. Good bourbon, molasses, raisins, plums, sweet maltiness. Very nice. Beer is medium in body and completely coats the mouth. Itís sweet up front and gives way to a nice smooth liquor flavor on the midpalate leading to a mild but clean bitterness at the back, itís subtle but there. The whole beer is good. I want to hold it in my mouth. There is a nearly treacle-like sweetness through out, minimal esters and other characters. A very good beer. Serving type: bottle

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
12oz bottle into my Darkness snifter...Ugly medium brown pour that is muddy and gross. A creamy light tan head rises about two fingers, decent retention, not much lacing...The aroma is fantastic, strong, complex and balanced. A malty brown sugar backbone with notes of bread, maple syrup and vanilla, balanced by smooth oak, bourbon and a little alcohol...The taste sweet but alcoholy. Very malty, lots of bread, vanilla and brown sugar. The bourbon is very strong here as well as the oak. The feel is very hot, especially as you swallow, warming and comforting but also a little annoying. I really like this one search this out, so flavorful yet easy to drink at 13%.

Bottle of the 2010. Toffee and roasted pecans - pecan pie aroma with notes of dried red fruits. Flavor is surprisingly not hot, just warming - medium sweet with decent complexity but the finish could be a bit longer - it just kinda drops off after a couple of seconds.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Ibrew2or3. Pours a cloudy brown purple color with a medium beige head. An awesome rich fruity bourbon nose, nose, woody and sweet. The flavor is very nice; sugary sweet, dusty dry, some hops, vanilla, bourbon, sweet throughout, berries, so drinkable. A superb brew. It mellowed a lot of the regular 4th Dementia.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma is very potent, bourbon, caramel, and dark fruit. Flavor is also amazing, bourbon, toffee, lots of raisin, red grape, caramel, and some oak. Also in there somewhere are maple syrup and honey. A touch too sweet would be my only (small) complaint.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 6, 2011
2010 bottle marked at 13.5% ABV. Pours with a hazy deep brown (mahogany) hued body and a tan head. Alcohol legs above that knock down the lace. Aromas are big with plums, very vinous, dark fruits, toffee, some alcohol, barrel, tobacco, vanilla, nutty and cola. Flavors are huge, raisins and dried fruits, tons of alcohol and tons of caramelization (a bit of cotton candy as well). Dates, plums, banana and chocolate. Barrel. Somewhat dry for what it is. Poached pear and molasses. Low carbonation. Sticky, boozy and tasty.
