Dark brown in color... Aroma of coconut, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits... Flavor is big and boozy, lots of figs, dark fruits, chocolate, coconut, with notes of bourbon heat on palate... lots of chewy vanilla notes, sticky and sweet, alcohol isn't that well concealed...

Even by the strong standards of the Barleywine, Kuhnhenns barrel-aged ale is some unholy beast. At 15% its dangerously potent, but it doesnt drink like a huge beer. Dark brown pour. Butterscotch, toasted malt, molasses, and vanilla aromas. Taste profile consists of dark fruit, caramel, coconut, and malt sugar. Alcohol heat is tucked away under the full-bodied malts. This is one hell of a way to be introduced to Kuhnhenn. Thisll put you right on your ass.
