Michigan Winter Beer Fest....another winner at the festival...murky brown apperance with no head...aroma is of chocolate, coffee, and caramelized sugars...flavor adds molasses to these elements to make a tasty treat! perfect palate Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Sampled at the Michigan Winter Beer Fest, Lansing. Deep dark opaque brown body, thin tan head. Sweet, caramelized malts with raisin, molasses, hints of plum, and coffee. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Rich, complex aroma and flavor. One of the better beers at the fest. I did not pick up the high ABV, but I think I felt it. Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2006
On tap at the MI Brewer’s Guild Winter Festival. Probably the best looking pour I’ve ever received. Picture a beautiful looking stout with a thin, dark brown head, that cascaded upward to a white and brown swirled froth. The flavor did not disappoint. Roasted coffee and a hop bit that was impressive on the finish. Raisan and chocolate on the palate. Nice work! Tmoney99 (14772) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Draft sampler at brewpub when I was up for Bengals game. Black color with an average light brown head that lasted and had good lacing. Complex roasted chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Full body with a smooth sticky texture. Same complex roasted and fruit flavor with a solid small bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Bottled. Opaque dark black. Aroma of anise and licorice. Sweet and thick like oil. Very full bodied. Flavourwise it’s like chocolate cake covered in cocoa and tar with a punch of liqueur. Complex, but too covered in syrup. Oakes (18209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
My first new Kuhnhenn since they became famous. Extra thick dark brown. No carbonation and no head. Rich, fudgey, roasty and slightly soapy aroma. Ultra thick, flat body. Very unique blackberry accent amidst all the big malts and subtle roast. Fun beer. Wish I took better notes - there was much more going on I haven’t written about. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 3, 2006
This imperial stout pours a dark black color. Small to no head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet and floral. A full bodied Imperial Stout. Malts are chocolate and coffee. Touch of floral hops. Very smooth. Touch of alcohol oiliness at 13.5%. Very complex and full bodied. Nice beer. It does hide the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Deep blackish pour with a 2-finger brown head. Great appearance for this one. The aroma was big molasses, black cherry, dark chocolate, some toffee nuts, brown sugar, and oats. I didn’t get any coffee from this one, but I got tons of chocolate, molasses, and fruit. The flavor was roasty dark chocolatey, with a big oaty cherry molasses mid-palate and finish. Dense and complex, this is an another elite entry into an already stacked category. "Yes, let the darkness flow through you and your anger consume you. Your transformation to the dark side is almost complete!" egajdzis (6673) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Poured a pitch black color with a medium sized, dark tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of anise, roasty malt, chocolate, and nuts. Taste was roasty, with lots of sweet chocolate, tobacco, intense coffee bitterness, rhum, and sharp alcohol in the finish. Solid mouthfeel. Thanks cquiroga!
