COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American example of an English style of beer made for the Russian Royals. This ale deep black in color, finally released after being aged for 16 months. Made using large amounts of malt and roasted barley yields the most robust beer we make. Thick coffee like flavor and aroma. This beer is well hopped and finishes bitter. This is a real treat

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 (17274) - 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.

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 12 oz. bottle, pours a silky black as night with a miniscule brown head. Aroma is full of dark roasted malt, significant molasses, moderate espresso and a touch of liqueur. Flavour is extremely woody and roasted predominantly - with very dry wood (not the barrel aged type), dry roasted malts, and a touch of espresso - none of the aforementioned chocolate or liqueur - with a woody and quite hoppy, bitter, dry finish. Silky smooth palate, with an element of harshness from the hops. No detection of the high ABV at all. Excellent stuff here.
