4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at Kuhnhenn Brewery in Warren, MI with friends prior to going to a Tigers game. This stuff was exceptionally good. Appearance is pitch black with a robust, creamy white head. Aroma mostly of vanilla, chocolate, maybe a bit of hazelnut. Taste is sweet, decadent, and delicious, the vanilla notes are especially good. I didn’t really like the vibe of this place, but the beer was very good.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Aroma is hazelnuts and vanilla, subtle coffee in the shadows. Super nutty yo. Vanilla and burnt sugars galore, balanced coffee profile. A much better beer than the Southen Tier creme brûlée.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Incredible aroma. Gets the saliva juiced up immediately. Black as night. Tastes of dirt & iron on an aggressively, almost lactic, dry delivery. This one is all in the smell; a description that I end up offering to a lot of Kuhnhenn brews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, hints of roast and caramel, plus light hops. Flavor the same and really too sweet and vanilla-y. Smooth texture. An interesting stout but too sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample draft at the brewery. Pours a near black color with a nice beige head that lingers. Aroma is delicious. Lots of coffee, vanilla, and burnt brown sugar. Taste is slight sweet and a slight bitterness too. Really tastes like liquid Creme Brulee with coffee. Finish is incredibly smooth and leaves a long coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and carbonation is a bit strong. Would love to try an imperial version of this. I bet it would be amazing. Still, its a very tasty stout.
