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.

Bottle. Nearly black, thin brown head, scant lacing. Aroma of chocolate custard. Taste is sweet and thick, like Vietnamese coffee made with evaporated milk. Interesting.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A real coffee and sweet cream experience. Reddish brown body. Very creamy mouthfeel. Smells creamy coffee. Better than the Southern Tier version. Great even for a non-coffee drinker like me.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2010 Bottle. A tale of two beers. Visually stunning black with brown head. Nose nails creme brulee almost perfectly - toasted vanilla, cocoa powder, coffee and creme brulee. Taste is a bit of a disappointment. Weakish body. Taste is burnt caramel, roasted chocolate malts, cocoa butter and vanilla extract.

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.
