6oz pour at the brewery. Still, clear deep ruby. Aroma of cocoa, orange, and honey. Taste follows nose -- like chocolate orange liqueur. Medium body. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2014
375ml bottle. Poured a deeper purplish color with no head. Chocolate, oranges, and tootsie rolls. Fruity and port in there too ... this one was nice. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle... Pours deep, dark and burgundy with centipede-like legwork. The aroma is a fusion of chocolate tootsie rolls and Grand Marnier. There are dark berries here as well. Full-bodied with no carbonation. The flavor is of sweet tawny port with hints of raspberry and orange. Sugary-sweet finish. Tasty stuff. Bottle generously shared by biggsbowler!

375 ml bottle poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a dark brown to purple. No carbonation. The aroma has everything the name says, dark chocolate, orange peel, port wine. Complex and deep flavors. Definitely a sweet mead and one to sit and savor amongst friends (exactly what I did). Thick, sticky mouthfeel. This is one delicious mead. Kristophe (29) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks Jeff! Pours dark reddish, almost purple. Both aroma and taste is magnificent, very reminiscent of the candy "Romerska Bågar" (Roman bows?), don’t know if it exists outside of Sweden. Anyway it’s like drinking orange-chocolate milk. Super tasty, one of the best I’ve had from Kuhnhenn. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2013
From Todd. Stoked to try this!
A: Dark purple with slight bubbles. Leggy.
N: Port, grapes, orange, honey, and chocolate. A confection.
T: Tastes exactly like a tootsie roll, in a good way.
M: Very sticky, but somehow drinkable.
O: Fantastic. This is a delightful dessert. Never cloying, and all the flavors blend and elevate. douglas88 (9187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Unearthed artifact thanks to Todd. Really Kuhnhenn produces some of the coolest stuff out there. Pours a clear reddish amber color with low bubbly action. A big sweet nose of port, oranges and mostly chocolates. The flavor is almost totally a tootsie roll, massive sweetness, oranges, super sweet honey. Very odd. Good. neepsntatties (1988) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...cloudy ruby with a thin white head. Nose...fruity, grainy and rather like a moistened bitch! Palate...suh-weeeet! And orangey, and dry, and deeeeelighful! The sweetness does not surrender and the orange doesn’t either! The finish is long and somewhat cloying, but not overt.
