Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock 2007

Thanks to kdub87 who sent this to me as his first trade.

A: When I poured this beer it looked almost flat. I say that because there was hardly any head and my pour was very aggressive. There are a few traces of bubbles and a single clump of about six bubbles in the middle. I can see the carbonation rise up around the edges of my glass. This beer has a nice deep brown color. Nothing can be seen from one side of the glass through the body to the other.

S: Tons of sweet raspberry on the nose. There are some hints of caramel and toffee blended in as well.

T: Wow, the sweetness of the raspberry that I smelled tastes tart on my tongue. The raspberry is strong but I pick up hints of dark fruit, sweet toffee and a little tobacco on the back end.

M: Full mouth feel, syrupy but with a touch of crisp carbonation on the finish.

D: Awesome beer, I would drink it certainly drink it again. However I would always treat it as an after dinner sipper as opposed to a sessionable beer shared with friends all night.

Bottle, thanks to Probstk. Muddy brown appearance with no head whatsoever. The chocolate-raspberry aroma mixed with a bit of alcohol is enchanting. Taste, what to say, this is a raspberry chocolate bomb, strong syrupy and sweet with a long (medicine) finale. Very dessert. Minimal carbonation with a strong port mouthfeel. Excellent sipper.

Winter Solstice 2010

Graciously shared by MbpBugeye; thanks Seth!

Crimson color, some burnt amber & rusty hues. A patient, determined pour resulted in about a 1/8th inch head that dispersed quickly, leaving a collar of retention. No lace.

The aroma is all sorts of raspberry this & that. Very dense, too. Raspberry puree, raspberry concentrate, raspberry liqueur. Imagine if cough syrup smelled good. Sugary overtones. Faint breadiness manifests way in the back as it warms. Incredible.

Similarly wrought with raspberry, the taste is comparably dense. It's also really sugary with a modest twinge of tartness. A dry, subtle bitterness creeps in mid-section. The latter half finds the emergence of a moderate boozy swoon, hints of toastiness, mild cocoa notions & subtle spiciness.

The feel is quite dense. The high sugar content makes for a fully appreciable granular presence. Low carbonation, especially after it has a chance to open up. Boozy finish. Definitely warming.

This makes for a nice, slow-sipping, dessert of a beer. It's interesting enough to outshine the sugary aspects. Really enjoyable.
