3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kuhnhenn coconut cream mead. Nip bottle thanks to pudds... Pours a
mostly clear, somewhat opaque, amber pour with clearly no head.
Extenuating legs dancing io the edges... Coconut and caramel nose, not
overwhelmingy so like the coconut curry. Caramel is more overt in
nature.Honey backing... Flavors are coconutty in nature a little
More caramel in nature while still maintaining a sweet honey backing.
A little booziness persisting midway through and towards the back.
Clean and enjoyable along the desert mead perspective.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Small bottle shared by Kan. Thanks a ton!! Pours a ridiculous glowing amber pour, darker edged with touches of brown. A huge glow with touches of glow. No real head. Aromas are a ridiculously rich coconut essence, touches of sweet cream, with vanilla, coconut oil, and sweet honey mead. Sweet, huge coconut presence. Initial sweeter edged, huge coconut presence paired with a touch lighter honey, vanilla, wet oak. Touches of vanilla, but honey and coconut come back into play hard. Middle shows a touch of tartness, then strictly is big coconut. Cream, huge coconut fat, and the honey aids it. Kuhnhenn’s strength is pumping huge flavor into highly flavorful beveraged. Great beverage, highly flavorful. Albeit, I’m not a huge coconut fan. This is interesting, but falls a bit south for me. Still, I liked it much more than I thought I would.

(sampled at Dak’s Memorial Day tasting. Generously shared by Boltz7555). Pours clear caramel color with no head. Aroma is big coconut, caramel and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and follow suit of aroma. Think bodied with a slick oily texture. I’d been wanting to try this since I heard about it and it was every bit as good as I hoped. No hype on this one.

Bottle shared by Steve, thanks man. Pours a clear tan tinted body with nice legs. Reminds me right away of malibu, coconut rum. Sweet a bit of suntan lotion, coconut sweetness, vanilla sweetness, and a hint of honey. A nice mead.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Initially released on St. Patrick’s Day, I sampled on April 5th. 3oz sample poured into a wine glass. Color is clear caramel. Aroma of exactly what it’s described as - caramel coconut creme. Smells like tanning lotion and a tropical drink, reminds one of the Caribbean or a Mexican beach vacation. Taste is of course sweet and incredibly delicious. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, goes down so easily. Utterly delicious, one of the greatest things I’ve ever smelled and tasted.
