[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ northernbrews ][ Trade ][ Pizza Boy Snifter ][ 6.14.14 ]
>> 2014 bottling. HP laserjet label. Pours clear sepia, small, tight foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is detergent, amaretto, chocolate covered cherry, milk chocolate candy, tootsie roll. Palate is thinner, ashy, dusty. Taste is tootsie roll, ash, not sticky. Nose eventually opens up to cherry amaretto ice cream. Feels like 8%+ as stated.
>!< weaker body, ashy, too much tootsie roll

Bottle from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Deep brown, low carbonation. Rich nose of sweet vanilla and chocolately malts. Taste follows with smooth mouthfeel. Pretty rich sweet stuff-perfect for a 2 or 3 way split for desert.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Black pour with a small ring of tan foam. Lactose, coffee, cocoa, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is nice lactose and coffee with mild hop bitterness and chocolate. Relatively clean mouthfeel. I liked this beer - very non-gnarly for this brewery. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown, almost black, opaque, thin cappuccino head. Marshmallow fluff, chocolate syrup, caramel, roasted malt, a little vanilla, and sweetened coffee. Very sugary, but rather thin and flat in texture. Medium-bodied, lower carb than expected, and a bit of metallic undertone in the bittersweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 2014 - thanks blowofftube! Pours opaque black with a small creamy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate, vanilla, cocoa puffs(!), some roasty malts. Flavor is quite sweet, light bitter, huge kind of artificial chocolate, vanilla. Kind of like candy. Full body, creamy, some lingering bitterness.

12oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of dark malts, mainly chocolate but some roasted malts too, vanilla, lactose, light dough, and hints of hops. Flavor the same with a very nice blend of the chocolate, vanilla, and milk stout. Smooth texture. A cool beer.

Creamy milk chocolatey goodness. Had this during breakfast of champions to get off of all the sweet breakfast brews. Black/brown pour. Chocolate cream aroma and taste. Milk chocolate but thicker. Medium body light carbonation.

2014 bottle from recent bottle release. Pours black with a 1 finger brown head. Sweet aroma with slight coffee and some chocolate. Taste matches aroma. Mouthfeel is medium. Very drinkable. Good beer, but not my favorite from Kuhnhenn.

Draft. Sweet and rich milk stout... Almost just missing the coffee / roasted for more balance. Thick, creamy ... Just sweet.
