My only beer that I had while visiting Kuhnhenn on 01/07/11 before I went back to Chicago. Figured I might as well go all-out, since this was my only pour. Served in a snifter, from notes. A - Pours a mirky reddish/brown, half a fingers-worth of off-white head with some larger bubbles here and there on top. After the initial pour, there’s no lacing a some random bubbles and a thin film on top. S - Burnt sugars, candy, bourbon, oak, dark fruits, bourbon, malts and more bourbon. It’s not overly sweet and not too boozy. I was very surprised how balanced this one was, especially with very little aging. T - Very much similar to the nose. Bourbon, burnt sugars, candy, oak, roasty malts. Again, nothing overpowering each other here...everything is working well together. I wouldn’t say there’s no booze coming through, but not 13.5% worth. M - Medium to full, rich and smooth, drinks like a fine spirit. D - It took me an hour to finish my pour, but I really took my time to enjoy it since it was my only beer of the visit. It was excellent on-tap and I’m looking forward to cracking a bottle in the near future. A must-try!

huge thank you to flandersned for this gem. wow. what a brew. massive. 2010 vintage, 13.5%. nose is tons of carmel, sweet maltiness, toffee, some dusty old notes, and a strong alcohol presence. the taste is intensely old. dusty stale, flat, but oh so nice! this should mellow out very nicely over the years. very nice brew. delicious.

Quite an experience this beer was. Smelled and tasted like caramel candy, butterscotch and rich Kentucky bourbon.

Deep mahogany pour with bright, ruby highlights. Lots of rich, over-ripe dark fruit aroma with a healthy balance of sweet and smoky bourbon, lots of vanilla, some black strap molasses, deep aromatic oak, and notes of tobacco, anise, and leather. The flavor is a blast of smoky bourbon upfront. The middle reveals lots of toffee, caramel, and molasses. Finishes with lots of vanilla, fig, raisin, alcohol, anise and oak. The body is sticky and full with soft carbonation.

Bottle shared by ryan. Slightly hazy brown pour. Light tan head. Aroma has bourbon, but unlike other barrel aged beers is not overpowering. Notes of vanilla. Sweet fruity flavor. Notes of chocolate and apple. Honey and molasses malt. Subtle bourbon throughout. Warm bitter finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not harsh or overpowering. Really hides the alcohol well. I’m surprised its 11%.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 Draft at 2010 Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice. Murky brown color with no head. Served very cold, and had to let it warm for a bit for the aromas to show through. Aroma of bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and dark fruits. Very balanced aroma, not overpowering in the bourbon department. Taste is quite sweet, not overly so. Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth, with just the right carbonation. Delicious, nice work Kuhnhenn! Tweaking rating on 2/1/10 after drinking bottled version: amazing in the bottle, maybe even a bit better than draft!

On tap at the brewery during the 2010 Winter Solstice. Poured a hazy muddy brown with a tan head that started and remained at the edges. Aroma had a nice but hot bourbon note that combined nicely with caramel and sweet grains. Flavor was similar with a slightly hot bourbon note that worked nicely with the sweet grains and caramel that came through.

Draft. Aroma has notes of dark dried fruits, bourbon, caramel. Dark brown hue with an average off-white head. Palate is heavy sweet and bitter. Surprised at how balanced and well integrated the bourbon was. Really enjoyed this one.
