Very dark amber-brown. Murky. Huge aroma of alcohol, wood, and burnt pears. Large caramel palate, slight toffee & smoke. Long, chewy malts and very sweet finish.

MIBG Fest: The beer I had at the Festival was served under the name "Kuhnhenn 120 Schilling Scotch Ale", so I'm assuming that "Kuhnhenn Scotch Ale" is the same beer. Dark ruby-caramel colour with a small head. Strong notes of brown sugar and alcohol on the nose. Flavour of sweet malt, with lots of brown/maple sugar, and moderate hoppiness. The flavour does a good job hiding the alcohol that is apparent in the aroma.

A truly mediocre version of this style. All of the required maltiness was there, but it tasted pushed ... there was a strong diacytel butter scotchiness which I don't think was planned for. Lightly hopped, of course, but it cried for more. Not an impressive beer.

I do apologize that my reviews of Kuhnhennís are quite similar, but there is a reason. The only way you can sample one of their beers is by going there. The simplistic feel while there, is almost as important as a hoppy undertone, etc. So I list stuff like this. First of all, Kuhnhennís has a nice little setup going on. Free, greasy popcorn substitues the need of a food menu. HJeck, last time I was there, they had ordered pizza and just said, íhelp yourself.í Noe the beers all have an honest, yet slighty strong malt flavor. At first sampling, I was nt a big fan, but the flavor grows on you and makes them a bit different from the norm. I do recommend. This beer sisnít taste too much like a strong, scottish ale. They might have given me their Apricot Lager instead, because it tasted quite similar to that.
