I got a bottle from kuhnhenns 2011 winter solstice bottle release party.
Pours a dark brown, caramel colored head.
Aroma is molasses, brown sugar, slightly coffee.
Sweet flavor.
Complex molasses, caramel, brown sugar, bitter dark chocolate palate.

Mondial de la bière 07. Couleur ambrée très foncée, pratiquement aucune mousse. Arôme mélasse, caramel et alcool. Goût très malté, caramel, alcool réchauffe longuement. Très rond et sirupeux, effervescence faible. Surprenant.

Mondial de la bière de Montréal 2007. Calin de bin, deux en deux...cette brasserie offre vraiment de bonne bière. On pourrait croire que le haut taux d’alcool pourrait être un problème, mais non c’est ce qui rend cette bière extraordinaire.

2013 vintage bought at this weekend's Summer Solstice release. Pours a dark ruby red with a 1/2 finger head that goes quickly. Super sweet candied malt ,dark cherry and plumb aroma with slight alcohol. Initial sweet caramelized malt beginning, then a blast of tangy, dark cherries. Lingering dark cherry aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with zero carbonation. Syrupy and sticky. This beer is similar to a thin port wine. An after dinner sipper for sure. Certainly worth a try if you can find it. Different, but very good. Not your average lager.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at spuyten duyvil.. This place is epic.. Pour is the exact same at the braggot.. Wait a minute.. They collaborated with the same fella for both.. Pour is the same no head dark dark red brown. Aroma is more malt than the braggot with some sweet booze and dark fruit. Taste is dark fruit.. Raisins, toffee with some sweet honey and malts. Mouthfeel is viscous and boozy finish lingers., unbelievable back to back with the kuhnhenn braggot.. Clearly the same creation with more malt and more wood.. Genius.. I may need to leave at this point.. A nice 12.5

sheep (93) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2012
355ml bottle, bottled 2011. Pours a dark and deep ruby red with a small dark beige head that doesn’t last. Aroma is rather complex, rye bread, caramel, marshmellow, burnt sugar, fudge, alcohol heat and a touch of raisin. Lots of malty goodness going on. Nice. Taste falls a bit flat because the carbonation is sadly minimal, resulting in a thin and watery mouthfeel. Shame. Taste is sweet malt, dark fruit and alcohol heat with rye in the finish. Palate is a bit sticky. A is for awesome aroma, D is for disappointing otherwise.

Concentrated bready malts with a dash of soy in the nose, as well as a dose of alcohol. It’s a clear brown/ruby beer with no head. Taste is similar to the nose. Lots of alcohol with a salted caramel flavor. Maybe a bit of dark fruit on the finish. Feel is very hot. Lightly carbonated and fairly thin for the alcohol content. Burns going down. Not a beer I’m excited to track down again.

Alcohol, caramel, malt... Mostly a huge malt bomb with some sweetness to cover the high ABV. Pass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hoffback (37) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2013
Doften är maltig, blommig och parfym. Viss torkad frukt typ russin. Smaken är otroligt söt och rätt sliskig med inslag av malt, russin och madeira. Nej detta var ingen höjdare. Alldeles för söt och avsaknad av karaktär.
