COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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 @ Barcade for Kuhnhenn event w James and Andy. Dark red-brown pour, murky. Aroma is heavy heavy coffee and flavor is underwhelmingly so. Notes of coffee but heavy booze and heavy tobacco/ash. Smells like a creme brulee dessert but disappointed thereafter.

Poured black. Strong smell of Bourbon with hints of chocolate and cherry. The alcohol burns through at the end. It has a somewhat creamy texture, but also a bit like syrup.

MotherBrother (764) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2013
Tap @ GTMW 13. pour is nearly black, with a small off-white head. Aroma is packed with vanilla, coffee and slight chocolate. (Some might say, it’s a mix of crème Brulé and Americano) The taste is pretty sweet upfront, with a roasted/coffee - bitterness to it. Medium bodied, with a slightly fizzy carbonation.

bottle, thanks derek. pours blk tan head nose is loaded with coffee and chocolate with a big creme brûlée kick and roast character that compliments nicely. Flavor is sour dark fruit and chocolate, vanilla too but that sour is off killing such great potential too, I’m sad. 8/4/5/3/13. draft versions were right on point with big sweet creme brulee quality. not my thing but i see why people like it.
