3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on-tap at the Kuhnhenn Brewery as part of a paddle.
Appearance: Well... black. Tan head. Nice lacing. This one really looks like what you’d expect from a stout. The lacing on Export Stout is quite nice.
Smell: Ashy, roasty, chocolate+coffee. It smells slightly different than other stouts I’ve had before... maybe that’s just because I haven’t had an export stout before. Smells interesting, and actually pretty good.
Taste: Almost exactly like the aroma as far as the ash and roastiness... the coffee and chocolate notes are there, but only in a complimentary way. I was expecting this to be a really bitter beer, but it actually had a decent sweetness in there (chocolate?) that I enjoyed. It’s definitely a touch bitter, but I liked that a lot... I was in the mood for a slightly bitter stout, and this did it for me. The real kicker (yes, I’ve gone Guy Fieri on you) is the mouthfeel... creamy and satisfying.
Best stout I’ve ever had? Nope, but it’s a tasty offering by Kuhnhenn. Worth a try. And then another. And maybe another...

On tap at brewery. Pours jet black with creamy head. Roasty chocolate, coffee, and malt nose. Very smooth taste but not as complex in taste as it was in nose.. The finish is a bit lighter than what I was expecting. A good standard stout.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at Barcade Brooklyn. Smells great: strongly roasted malt, coffee galore, no sign of infection. Taste is a different story, however, with a rapid tartness shooting through the flavor profile to spoil everything you hold dear. Unfortunate.
