2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rattle for the Kuhnhenn takeover. Hazy brown. Mild aroma with caramel, malt. Taste is strong with a bit of alcohol, more caramel, sweet. Harsh and unbalanced, couldn’t really have more than a sip or two of this.

Draft at RnH with Streets, Andrew, and Brendan during the Kuhnhenn Total Tap Takeover Event. Pours a deep brown body with slight lacing. Aroma is light smoky roast. Mouthfeel is smooth notes of sweet roast, chocolate candy and earth.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to my mom for picking up the 2009 edition at the 2010 Winter Solstice party for me. Served in a snifter. Closing out the eisbock list with this beer.
Pours a moderate brown color with some amber coloring in there as well. Very thin off-white head and a few legs down the side of the glass. Slight collar. Nose is loaded with dark fruits and some alcohol. Slightly spicy as well. Taste is a bit oxidized and really quite warm. Warm as in lots of booze, even for an eisbock. Low carbonation. Decent but probably way too young. Normally Kuhnhenn hides alcohol better than this.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at the pub, poured into a 6oz tasting glass...A dark but clear gold, good coloring. The head is bright white and keeps about a half finger cap for several minutes. At first the lacing is very full, but falls too quickly. Good start...The aroma is totally dead, very disappointing, only a slight hint of hops...The taste is exceedingly sweet, corn, floral bitter hops help to break the sweetness. Reminds me more of a pilsner with a little black pepper finish. A touch to sweet but this makes this totally crushable at a shocking 7%.
If I had to drink a lager I’d probably go for this, but at Kuhnhenn tough to keep going back to this with so many other options.

Poured up on tap at the Kuhnhenn brewpub with clear light copper body and white head. The aroma puts out floral hop like cotton candy sweetness, mild spiciness and some lager-y yeast. The taste is sweet and gets caramel-y before lager yeast and thick sugary maltiness take over. I’m not picking up much in the way of hoppiness which seems a bit odd since floral hops were noted in the nose. Nice brew nonetheless.

On tap at the Brewpub. Poured a clear golden with off-white head. Aromas of grains, cereal, some sweetness and really hops. Flavors of cereal, grains, light hops, and a sweet flavor I cannot quite determine. Easy drinker for abv. Not bad.

Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a very clear medium golden with a nice fluffy white head some lace. Aroma is nice malty bready pils, toast, deep dark toasted crackers and french bread, good German flowery hops as well - seems mostly clean. Flavor is clean as well- toast, biscuit, doughy pils malt, light carapils sweetness, herbal and grassy with some flowery hops- finish is fairly clean and crisp. Pretty nice overall. (went back to see the description- Beet Sugar? Damn never would have guessed).

On tap at the Brewpub. Poured a clear golden yellow with a medium off-white head. Aroma was full of sweet grains, leading to a bit of a cereal aroma. Flavor was sweet as well with a grainy cereal sweetness as well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yellowish color. Sweet malt with a hop essence. Citrusy and a little ricey with some spice. A bit earthy, just ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pured a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was really grassy, and alcohol. Flavor was grassy, sweet malts, and surprising alcohol taste which seems out of place for barely being over 7%. Not too good at all
