Recent December bottling of 2004 batch. Received in a trade with Walleye - thanks, Jim! Pours a viscous and syrupy dark brown with tinges of red when the light hits the glass right. No head or carbonation to speak of and it really reminds me more of an aged brandy than a beer. Impressive, though. Smells of brandy-soaked raspberries and chocolate with a hint of carmelized sugar. Thick and syrupy on the tongue - this is a beer that slides rather than washes down. Tastes like it smells, but not over the top on the raspberries. Very balanced and not hot with alcohol. My first thought is how amazing this eisbock would taste drizzled over pancakes. Its sweet molasses, chocolate and fruit flavors would be a show-stopper. Overall, a very unique, well-crafted and tasty dessert beer/apertif. Glad I have an additional bottle to stash and see how the flavors change in time. My first Kuhnhenn Bros. beer, but far from my last.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Drucken på fat på Mikkeller & Friends på Nörrebro. En glad överaskning att den var påkopplad. Söt alkholvarm hallondoft med vanilj, choklad och cognac. Stor kropp, rejäl sötma men inte sliskigt, snarare len och stor munkänsla, väldigt väl dold alkohol, inte alls spritigt men kraftig och värmande. En dessert i sig och riktigt gott. Fint att värma sig med en kylig vårdag.

Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Fad: Bordeaux farvet øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Duften er let bourbon, vanilie og masser af hindbær. Smagen er igen meget kompleks med masser af hindbær men dog også en ordentlig gang alkohol. Øllen er simpelthen for varm af alkohol. Dejlig ø ellers.

Habanero (2182) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
Tap. Pours deep amber with a tiny beige head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee and rasberries. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol. Full bodied, syrupy texture and soft to flat carb. A great and complex brew.

DesertDevil (456) - Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2014
2012 bottle with daknole and Ibrew2or3. Nice earthy raspberry nose with milk chocolate and a weird Dr. Pepper tone. Pours a clear ruby-copper. A tart and sharp taste of dark berries grabs hold early, with chocolate-covered cherries, wet oak, and a hint of cognac emerging late. The alcohol is quite hidden; I never would have guessed the 15.5% ABV from the taste. A nice beer, but it falls short of the massive hype.

Spirit rainbow coloured. Taste is likewise - doesn’t feel like a fruity beer due to sweet fruitiness on finish and booze.

Bottle. 2007 version. Thx Svend/Enjoyit. Dark with beige head. Aroma of cocoa, raspberries, fruiit and dark malts. Tart, very tart. Also sweetness from berries with an alcoholic, yet mellow vinous flavour. This is as complet as it gets. Great, great beer.
