This black in color imperial stout’s aro-ma is lead by coffee and dry roasty notes. Crème Brulè coffee is brewed and added post-fermentation. This killer stout is highly sought after at every tasting we take it to.

One of the many growlers shared by Jale. I had two pours of this stuff, pretty tasty. Aroma of coffee, with lots of sweet vanilla notes. Taste is sweet, lots of coffee flavors but not overly done, compared to a few kuhnhenn beers I’ve had. Reminds me of a tiramisu. Palate is rich and creamy, I like this stout.

On draft at RnH Kuhnhenn event. Lots of sweet coffee in the aroma. Flavors of scorched malt, caramel, and a vanilla cream aftertaste. Full, complex, and smoky. I liked this one a lot - definitely a superior coffee stout.

On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Decent lacing and fades quickly. Aroma is extremely sweet with notes of espresso, coffee creamer, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma but still packs hints of coffee, vanilla, caramel, and cream. If you are fan of sweet stouts this is pretty good.

Tap at Rattle for the Kuhnhenn takeover. Pours hazy brown, lots of coffee aroma. That’s pretty much all, just lots of coffee, but in a good way. Taste has some vanilla and caramel, sweet malt, bitter coffee finish. I quite enjoyed this beer.

Reviewed from notes. Picked a bottle up at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin head. The nose brings out some chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a bit of cream. The taste and body together make it evident why this is a "creme brulee java" beer as the coffee and cream flavors mix quite well with a bit of sugar. Chocolate in the background. Good body without too much booze. This was a good-drinking beer and I wish I had gotten a bit more to age. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2010

Growler. Pours a black body with a tan coffee head. Aromatically sweet and roasty. Coffee, espresso, milk chocolate tones, vanilla and toffee notes. Bittersweet coffee and espresso with a medium warming and a chewy dark chocolate tone. Very good thanks for keeping this under 10% as well.

I had this on tap at the brewery into a tulip...The beer is medium black, light tan carbonation, doesn’t last long...The aroma is super strong, exactly like coffee, too strong though. A little too sweet...The taste is sweet milk and vanilla, interesting, really hits the creme brulee on the head. Coffee finish, can drink a little, but right now the flavors are too strong. Tone it down a bit and maybe this will be really good.

Growler pour. Aroma:Coffee, chocolate, sugary syrup in the aroma. Appearance:Black and opaque, very little head. Taste:Very sweet. Dark chocolate and caramel. There’s some roasty notes in the foretaste. There’s a little bitterness, which comes out more on the aftertaste. Palate:Medium body, smooth and creamy. Overall:This is quite a delicious dessert beer. I believe it’s best enjoyed fresh, because I had a bottle before that tasted nothing like this fresh growler.
