Tap at Kuhnhenn. 3 year aged, I think this might deserve a separate area.... anyway, pours a dark brown with thin off-white head, no lacing. Aroma of dried and slightly tart fruits, overripe apple, roasted malt, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Flavor matched well with an additional sweetness, yeast that I didnít detect in the aroma, slight bitterness, and some spice. Mouthfeel is slightly slick with a dry slightly sour, slightly bitter finish.

Sample from a bottle @ DLD 09 (also had @ DLD 08). Pours a reddish copper color with a medium sized diminishing off white head. The aroma was dried fruits, banana, sweet bread, yeast, and spices. The flavor was candy sugar, yeast, fruity, spices (clove, cinnamon) and caramel malt that just didnít seem to want to completely work together. Medium bodied and interesting. The alcohol was warming, but not indicative of 10+ %. Thanks to the person who shared this.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Sampled from 750 ml bottle during Dark Lord Day í09, at table 1. Pours a semi-clear dark reddish amber with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of banana esters, yeast, candi sugar, dried figs, raisin and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, banana esters, a hint of clove and dark pitted fruits, Finish is semi-sweet with a touch of banana and alcohol warmth. Nice!

shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2009

4/25/2009: Kuhnhenn Prometheus has an interesting spicy aroma paired with a malty and fruity flavor. The flavor has a spice meldey as well that includes cinammon and nutmeg among others. The body of the beer is average and there is quite a bit of sediment suspended in the liquid.

Sample from bottle at Dark Lord Day 2009. Rating #51 for this beer.

Felt like randomly cracking this one tonight. It pours a nice crimson color with a fizzy, brownish head which fades quickly. The smell is very intriguing, extremely fruity, clove, banana, mixed christmasy spices, almost cideresque. Figs, dark fruits and sweet caramel dominate the taste and are accentuated by lighter fruit notes such as banana and perhaps a small amount of mango. The taste is rounded out by a bit of clove toward the end. It is a little overcarbonated and fizzy with medium viscosity which seems strange since this was brewed almost 2 years ago (June í07). At first I was really digging on the light fruit notes mixed with the heavy, fig and caramel however it is definitely a big beer and I think the combination is a little too much towards the end of a bottle. Definitely share this one.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Aroma at first was hard charging alcohol,with malting trying to make an impression, taste was also sharp alchol with slight hints of fruit and christmas cake. As it warmed ,it got considerably more malty ,and some anise and other spices peeked out. Eventually a very pleasant sipper , probaly needs to tame down a bit more
