On tap: The aroma is a great combination caramel, toffee, banana bread, vanilla, and oak. Itís a dark orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with lots of caramel and toffee. The finish has vanilla, bourbon, light molasses, faint oak, and a touch of alcohol. Full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel.

12oz. bottle, 2010 vintage, with a huge thanks to WeisGuy for the hookup! Pours a dark cola color with some ruby highlights and a thin and whispy covering that settles to a moderate ring. Aroma is just lovely, with loads of candied dark fruits, rich toffee and caramel, some vanilla and oak, more overripe mashed dark fruits, just a whiff of bourbon and some thick molasses. Wow, right up my alley! Flavor follows along stunningly, with more big notes of toffee, caramel, candied and ripe dark fruits, vanilla, oak, and some bourbon. Only a hint of prickliness on the palate with some warmth. The big ABV is there but very much in the background. Stellar all the way around and certainly did not disappoint, I could sip on this all night. Thanks again Shane!

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, thereís 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. Itís 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 wouldnít say thereís 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 Iím 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. Iím 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!
