COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale beer, made with real coffee. This java stout goes through a unique process, involving caramelizing brown sugar to give it an intense caramel & vanilla aroma.

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.

Opaque black color with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma is strong espresso with some cocoa notes. Flavor is very armonious espresso with cocoa and some vanilla notes, kind of a latte. medium palate easy drinker and full of flavor.

On tap at Hopcat. Pours black with brown head. Aroma is coffee and vanilla. Sweet. Taste follows the aroma with a good amount of coffee, vanilla, and cream. Not too sweet and very balanced. Very good beer.

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.

On tap at HopCat. This was a tasty treat for sure, pitch black with lovely coffee and sweet aromas. Not too heavy at all, perfect strength. Very smooth and enjoyable.

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.

Draft at Kuhnhenn tap room. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is of roasty coffee with plenty of chocolate. Lots of intense flavor in this. Excellent in small quantities, but drinkability is limited. I very much enjoyed it, but even though the alcohol content was suprisingly low the sweetness pretty much cuts you off after one beer. Would definitely try again.

Opaque black stout. Light vanilla nose. Palate is light and a little crisp. Sweet burned vanilla malt - quite airy. Minerals. Finishes soft and pretty dry. A distinctive beer but the Southern Tier is casting a long shadow here. Still good though.

From a growler straight from the brewery. Poured a pitch, motor oil black color with a dark tan head. Aroma was... woah. It was coffee, vanila, roasted malts, and a touch of lactose/milk, like cream. Flavor was, how to put it... pretty amazing. This was like drinking a sweet, sugary, creamy coffee, treat. This one is a bit syrupy sweet and it’s not so much a beer as a confectionery delight. It’s caramel sweetness, with toffee, doused with liberal amounts of vanilla and coffee and it’s so good. Very drinkable, which is a huge plus as it’s not some alco-bomb that ends the night right when it touches your lips.
