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.

Bottle, shared. 2014 version. Pours dark but clear red, slight pink ring of foam. Massive raspberry jam, hint of nuts and chocolate. Holy god, this is boozy. Like iced raspberry cider. Pretty dang impressive considering the abv and freshness. To the cellar.

2012 Bottle, huge thanks to ICEatALAMO for this one. Popped open by myself to celebrate a 4.0 semester. Pours a deep burgundy/red with a small off-white head. Aroma is raspberries, chocolate, caramel, just a touch of alcohol, quite similar to Chambord. Taste follows suit, with lots of chocolate/raspberry goodness, with a roasty chocolate finish. Alcohol is pretty much non-existent considering the ABV; super easy to drink. Beautiful beer.

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Shared at Dangerous Bottle Share 8.0. Pour is dirty reddish with some tiny lacings. Nose has raspberry!!! Sweet filled chocolates and some vanilla. Taste is very much like a fruity port wine, raspberries, slight alcohol burn, chocolate, sherry and a light tartness.

Klimaet (578) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Shared at Dangerous Bottleshare #8. Pours cloudy reddish brown with no haed. Aromas of sweet cherries, raspberries, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, liquor filled chocolate sweets, barley notes, light boozy heat. Taste is pretty jammy, sweet raspberries, chocolate, port wine, oaky dry, vanilla and some alcohol that does not do in any way harm this delicious brew! Very unique.

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . 2012 vintage. Pours hazy ruby red or murky brown depending on which glass I looked upon. no head either way. Aroma of nice and sweet raspberries, a lot of chocolate, vanilla, gummy bears and liquor filled sweets. A lot of port wine notes as well. Smells like a dessert liquor in some form. The taste also has a lot of sweet raspberries, chocolate, port wine, wood, weak jam, caramel, vanilla and some delicate alcoholic notes. Nice flat and oily body which suits it well. This is seriously something else! A great sipper imo.

Vestergaard (840) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Baron! Pours a dark, deep reddish, slightly murky brown with almost no head. Aroma has lots of raspberries, alcohol, cherry, sweet fruity notes, huge malty sweetness, chocolate, the liqour that you fill in chocolates, port wine. Taste is a nice, sweet mix of raspberries and chocolate, lots of booze in a nice way, again elegant port wine notes. Not overwhelming, but still very intense! This lived up to my expectations for sure! Low carb and full, oily body.

375 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. So big thank you to deyholla! Cheers Derek! Clear dark red colour with no head. Raspberries, dessert wine, dark chocolate, a hint if sweetness (yeast brings more sweet raspberries) and some fruit cake notes in the aroma. The flavour is strong... with raspberry, dessert wine, chocolate, mild bitterness, sweetness and some dryness. Wow! This is really enjoyable. A truly balanced beer. Rich and complex enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
