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 youíd expect from a stout. The lacing on Export Stout is quite nice.
Smell: Ashy, roasty, chocolate+coffee. It smells slightly different than other stouts Iíve had before... maybe thatís just because I havenít 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. Itís 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, Iíve gone Guy Fieri on you) is the mouthfeel... creamy and satisfying.
Best stout Iíve ever had? Nope, but itís a tasty offering by Kuhnhenn. Worth a try. And then another. And maybe another...

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.
