2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the 2011 Kuhnhenn’s Winter Solstice. Pours a hazy rusty amber with a light brown head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma is full of spice and fruitcake with a strong stollen backing note. Flavor begins with lots of spice and is joined by bread, grains and fruitcake which is a bit odd. Overly spiced.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one poured a murky brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruits, and spices, similar to a fruitcake. Flavor was more of the fruity side, very sweet, a lot like medicinal cherry cough syrup. Not too good.

A bizarre tasting brew that does indeed bring to mind fruitcake. Not a huge fan of it.
