Even after all those years this beer is very good and complex, but also very spicy... Nice!

12oz bottle, most of the kuhnhenn’s i’ve had have been very underwhelming .. . pours deep brown .. medium foam .. . lots of chocolate and booze .. . quite sweet .. . one dimensional but good .. . . if you have a deer head hanging up in your house, you probably hate obama.

Old tick. This one was just a booze bomb and sweet, but didn’t phase me too hard.

This bottled brew from rbsg #29 poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was of black malt. The strong flavor contained notes of mild black malt and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is boozy, with lots of sweet brown sugar, plums and dark fruit. Taste is big and sharp...lots of dark malt, dark fruit, and a long roasty coffee finish. A good deal of sugar and a long sharp finish. Medium bodied and well-carbonated.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! 2007 vintage The beer appears a deep, dark brown with a thin head that leaves a fair amount of lacing behind. The nose brings a heavy dose of roasted malt and alcohol. The flavor is big and bold. I’m sure age has tamed the beer to a certain extent, but it still packs a heavy punch. Flavors include roasted malt, booze, brown sugar, chocolates, dark fruits. The feel is heavy with plenty of booze. I guess it is 18% abv, after all. Overall, a pretty good beer, albeit a slow sipper. A few ounces was plenty for me. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-30-2011

Rando7 (778) - Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle pours purplish black with almost no head. Aroma dark fruits, roast, molasses, coffee. Flavor mainly just dark fruits and booze, a little soy. Finish a continuation of the flavor with alcohol burn. Palate full and thick, not sticky or syrupy. Alcohol very apparent.

Pretty good but definitely a sipper or one to share with friends.

tkrjukoff (4306) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, trade. Pours oily pitch black with a small brown head leaving just a rim of bubbles around the beer. Aroma is heavy of sweet molassis, roasted malts, dark fruits, soy, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Flavor is fullbodied sweet, roasted, meaty, soy, fruity, dark fruits and bitter. Finishes bitte meaty roasted and bitter. Maybe a bit too boozy but I think the sweetness mates well with the heavy body and alcohol, very much in my taste,

Koelschtrinker (17742) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2012
Alkoholischer Beginn, dem die Malznoten nur untergeordnet sind. Brennend, deutliche Vanillenoten. Vergorene Früchte hinter dem Malz, aromatisch, trockene Röstnoten. Stark alkoholisches Bier, das aber dennoch gelungene weiche Aromen hervorbringt. 9/12/9/12/10/11
