2007 seven oz bottle bought at the brewery. Opened as an after Gravity head 2010 'victory lap' beer. Poured into a New Holland beveled (english?) pint style glass.
Appearance- Beer pours a dark amber with some reddish hues. Cloudy, with very slow moving tiny carbonation bubbles that look as if they are rising out of syrup or something thicker than beer. Lacing is unseen but there are some hard alcohol 'legs' going on when the glass is swirled.
Smell- Raspberry, chocolate, booze, and slight maple notes hiding out in the background. I'm trying for the malt/hops but I'm just not getting past all that booziness and raspberry. There's nothing wrong with the aroma, but the nose is covering up other valuable scents that should also be there.
Taste- Strong raspberry, strong esters, this shows very little of it actually being a beer. It is however excellent and delicious. It's if cough syrup tasted good, this would be what it would taste like. There is that same hint of chocolate on the flavor as there is in the smell and that bit of maple syrup. I hate to mirror the smell, but that's the way it goes.
Mouthfeel- Thick and sticky, warming and mouth coating, full bodied and ever so lightly carbonated. Gluey, creamy, still a bit of fantastic.
Drinkability- I've had this on tap and now today in the bottle, I have not been disappointed by a single Kuhnhenn beer, and I would love to go back to the brewery for more of anything they have to offer.

Big thanks to Adam for getting this to me in trade. 2012 bottle with red wax poured in a Firestone Walker Teku on February 13, 2014. Pours bright and dark red with no head at all even with a vigorous pour. Huge sweet raspberry and booze aroma, some caramel or toffee, lots of sweet syrupy sugar smell. So much sweet berry. Flavor is sweet straight raspberry jam/preserves, and then some toffee like malts tingling the tongue with plenty of booze in the background. This is very sweet with a thick nearly syrupy mouthfeel but balanced with some light carbonation as to make it more drinkable. Huge flavors in this brew for sure. Made for the raspberry lover. Very nice and a bit hot. An awesome treat as an after dinner drink, just make sure to pour yourself a small glass around 4 oz. Tough to drink much more than that.
