Kuhnhenn Prometheus
From notes. Enjoyed at a bottle share at Sean’s on December 29. 750 mL, 2007 vintage bottle opened by Sean as the night cap. Thanks man! We dubbed this “Crème de Colgate” by the time this was over. The pour is a darker cherry rust colored brown with a thin ring of light tan head and no lace as it falls. The aroma is surprisingly minty. It’s not terrible, but it doesn’t seem right. There is a light and sweet caramel on the back end that seems it’s more of what they were going for here. The flavor is much of the same. Really minty up front with a nice sweetness and a malty caramel through to the finish. The mouth feel is a little light and decently carbonated with a lingeringly sweet caramel finish with a hint of mint. I think without the mint, this has a chance to be solid.

Kuhnhenn Meritage Pyment Mead
Shared by Yaniv, and sampled from 8-oz shorty bottle. Pours a semi-clear copper red colored brew with a very thin head that dissipates clean with a clear disk top. Aroma of tart berries, white pepper, a touch of alcohol and grape tannins. Taste is medium to medium-full bodied with flavors of powdery tannin grapes, honey and a touch of oak. Finish is sweet, quite smooth with a powdery grape tannin and honey aftertaste. Nice!
