I had this *LAST YEAR* at the World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan. I’m now reviewing it because I was just made aware that this is the mystery beer that I was freakin’ in love with. Appearance: Dark, tan head ... what you’d expect from a stout. Smell: Vanilla, bits of coffee, a lot of coffee. Awesome. Taste: A lot of dark coffee and chocolate, but it’s not very bitter... super tasty, and very drinkable. Really, it drinks a lot like a cold coffee. Feel’s smooth and only makes the beer even better. What else to expect from Kuhnhenn? I’m not normally HUGE on stouts/porters, but this pretty much blew my mind. Bold flavor, awesome aroma, easy drinking... what a beer.

Growler courtesy of Bill, pours black with small head, no lacing. Aromas is espresso bean, vanilla bean, dark chocolate, and taste is bitter coffee, caramel, tofffee, brown sugar and vanilla marshmallow. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Delicious. Doesn’t have the southern tier cloying grossness.

Growler from Kuhnhenn. Pours a dark porter brown with a tan head. Nose is some roast, some earth, some cocoa, and some sweetness that comes out as a nice caramel creme brulee. Flavor is similar- stout base: cocoa, earth, chocolate along with the sugary sweet creme brulee additions. Light to medium in body and a nice somewhat sessionable beer.

On tap at Kuhnhenn Tap Room, Warren , Michigan, pours a dark black color with a beautiful large java head. Nose is sweet vanilla and roasted coffee. Taste is coffee, vanilla and cream, and not overly sweet like Southern Tiers Cream Brûlée. This stout delievers all taste and flavor. Magnificent stout. 8 / 10

On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewery in Warren, Michigan. Pours black with a brown head and a pleasant java, coffee, vanilla aroma. Taste is sweet, lots of coffee, java, vanilla, and cream with a roasty, creamy coffee finish. Excellant stout, like a dessert in a beer

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.

Draft at Crunchy's. Near black with a beige head. Burnt sugar and malt. Pretty close to the dessert.
