Kuhnhenn Maximum Manhattan
Bottle received in trade. Very deep ruby red pour leaving some subtle legs on the glass with a swirl. Heavy deep cherry nose with soil, piney forest honey, dried pine needles & light damp basement. Slightly sweet, sour & heavy fruity taste. Oily, tart & slightly astringent mouthfeel. Cherry atom bomb that gets slightly unbalanced. While the heavy cherries are nice the honey is lost. Apparently there is such a thing as too much cherry.

Kuhnhenn Bourbon Barrel French Toast Mead
2017 release, on tap. Aroma is very floral, I got bourbon right after the pour but it seems to have dissipated greatly after sitting in the glass. Brilliantly clear, nice bright yellow color. None of the ingredients really steal the show on the tongue, its fairly balanced in that regard, but the flavors seem very subdued. It is a bit watery, and seemingly dryer than my memory of previous versions. More acidic than expected as well. Also, theres a bit of astringency coming through, likely from the pecans im guessing. Would like to see the next batch a touch sweeter, and with more flavor contribution from the nuts and spices.

Bottle (bottled in Oct 2014). Pours thick and brown with only a minimal head. Aromas of alcohol, rich malts, caramel malt, raisins. Taste is medium sweet, warming. Full bodied and thick with extremely soft carbonation. Drying, astringent finish. I am enjoying this one a lot more than I anticipated. Its a sipper. Good.

Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock
Bottle from Clint (starcross) -- thanks a ton, buddy! This is substantially harsher than I was expecting. The raspberry flavor and aroma is readily apparent, but its surprisingly medicinal, to the point of smelling and tasting artificial. The malt base is hot, giving off booze and intense caramel sweetness. I shared this with about 6 employees of a local brewery, and it was a struggle to finish it.

As one person in the group put it, "this tastes like a discontinued Yankee Candle that was NyQuil flavored."

Kuhnhenn Blueberry Eisbock - Bourbon Barrel Aged
375 mL bottle. Deep purple body. Smells of blueberry, alcohol, a little bourbon, and lots of sweetness. Tastes of blueberry, a bit of acidity, sweet caramel and blueberry. Alcohol. Not a lot of bourbon, but it comes through in the end. Heavy and very alcohol. Not sure why, but this one is not anywhere near as good as the BA Raspberry Eisbock. Its acidic and doesnt seem to justify the alcohol.

Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock - Bourbon Barrel Aged
375 mL bottle. Deep red and brown body. Smells of alcohol, raspberry, heavy sweetness, bourbon, vanilla. Wow. Tastes really alcoholic. Alcohol and raspberry. Bourbon and oak behind it. Vanilla and a very strong sweetness linger in the back end. Heavy and absurdly alcoholic. Small pour is realistically all I can handle of this, but it is good enough to want more.

The foam just goes around the rim. Medium brown amber color. Very big sweet malty nose with burnt raisins, raspberries, brown sugar, brandy, Christmas cake. Very full body, tons of raspberries, chocolate, Christmas cake, very sticky malty mouth. Super low carbonation. Boozy but so delectable and rich. Lingering I had this last time in 2008 and it is just as good.

Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock
Pours mahogany, not much foam but well, thats not what you look for in this beer. Aroma is full of raspberry jam, pure, fresh raspberry jam that I would like to take and just speed on a freshly baked and still warm bread and drink some cold milk next to it. Sweet and sticky, dense and warming. Taste is also full on raspberry, sweet, jammy, body is still somewhat dry. Alcohol comes out in the finish, some alcohol bitterness there. More raspberries in the finish. Game on, RBs best Fruit Beer, I dig you!

Kuhnhenn Braggot Mead
12 oz. bottle shared by Joe - thanks again, Joe! 2014 vintage, 12.8% ABV. Pours a mostly clear darkened gold color with some carbonation bubbles settling around the edge. Im surprised at the amount of banana Im getting from this, like a sweet bananas foster sort of thing, with honey and layers of toasted sugar, earth, wildflowers, subtle spices, and old wood. A little bit of a boozy warmth, but mostly sweet. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation. Seems older than it is. Not as good as other Kuhnhenn meads but worth checking out for sure.

355 ml bottle @ Timo A. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is herbal with lots of berries and honey notes, caramel and hints of ripe fruits. Flavor follows the same lines, ripe fruits and caramel sweetness, slightly spicy, some yeast and earthy notes. Quite weird, very disappointing.
