2007 nip bottle

Pours murky red/brown with some sediment. No head or lacing.

Smells like dessert. Lots of raspberry puree along with a hefty dose of caramel.

Holy hell this is sweet. Lots of intense raspberry flavor with a strong caramel presence. Not a ton of complexity in this.

Lightly carbonated, but it is present unlike most other Kuhnhenn beers and for this style and sweetness, it's not off. Very thick and syrupy.

Eh perfect serving size for this as it is way too sweet to drink large quantities of. Kind of a weird beer to my palate. Not very complex and just sort of average. (591 characters)

2007 vintage poured into a Mikkeller wine glass

A - Dark, reddish brown with no head and slight carbonation. Reminds me of a darker sherry. Definitely looks more like a dessert wine than a beer

S - Raspberry liqueur, chocolate covered raspberries, and raspberry jam lead in the nose. Has a big, jammy scent of fresh raspberry that takes over. It even smells thick! The raspberries are definitely of the sweeter variety and not tart at all

T - Full of raspberry flavors with a slight hint of chocolate. It actually is a bit tart at first which I don't get in the nose. Definitely reminds me of biting into a juicy, fresh raspberry. It has hints of caramel and raspberry jam that give it a slight sweeter taste near the finish. Definitely one of the best raspberry and fruit beers out there

MF - Thick and viscous body that is nice and sticky. It has very light carbonation; just enough to cut through the beer and prevent it from being too thick.

O - This beer is one of the reasons why Kuhnheen is well loved. It has great raspberry flavor, a nice mouthfeel, and is a unique beer. I'm pleasantly surprised by how well this has held up as I don't notice any signs of oxidation. This is a beer that would go great with a chocolate dessert such as rich truffles or chocolate cake. (1,282 characters)

2007 Vintage
Thanks HUGELY to Schmoopsbeer

App- The color of blood mixed with caramel and some reds and gold. No bubbles at all. No head, no cling. Very cordial like.

Smell- A sweet after dinner drink. Chocolate and Raspberries with creamy caramel and a bit of boozy sweetness. Just again cordial like.

Taste- Such an explosion of what a beer can be. Sweet with boozy fruits and liquid chocolate. Booze is hidden but still shows itself nicely. For an older bottle holding nicely.

Mouth- A lighter medium with a low carbed beer with a ton of Raspberry & Chocolate flavors. A littlw sweet with some booze.

Drink- Brian and I may talk a ton of shit but I cant thank him enough. Great beer. Can see why so hard to find. (772 characters)

REVIEW #1000! This has been a want of mine since the beginning. Many thanks to Exiled for a patient trade.

2007 vintage, 6.3oz bottle.

A: Pours a very deep mahogany color with a faint light brown head that quickly fizzed away into a thin collar. No lace.
S: I get huge notes of sweet raspberry preserves that remind me of doughnut filling. Light chocolate, glazed dough (i.e. pastry), and sweet caramel come through in the background.
T: Raspberries are still very prominent and actually fairly tart but not mouth puckering. Chocolate flavors are similar to cake or a tootsie rolls. The fruit is rather fresh and “real” tasting as opposed to a syrup or concentrate. I get complex notes of caramel, molasses and tannic red berry seeds in the finish, with hint of brown sugar and tobacco in the aftertaste. This beer is sweet all around, but not cloying, and the tartness of the fruit mixed with the drying tannins balance it out very well. Flavors of sweet raspberry jam linger long after the swallow, and my lips taste like caramel and tootsie rolls. Flavors open up and more nuisances come through as the beer reaches room temp, and I get some spicy woody and leathery notes. This beer is just phenomenal.
M: This beer is thick bodied with a syrupy and heavy mouthfeel. The double digit alcohol is hidden extremely well beneath the sweetness, but there is a slight warming sensation with each swallow. Carbonation is low but tingly and almost prickly, but never sharp. This is a sipper of a beer, and drinks well.
O: Masterfully done. For such a sweet dessert beer I could actually drink this quite often. It’s too bad this little guy is so hard to come by, or that the bottle format is so small. Well worth seeking out if you are a fan of fruit or eisbocks. Thanks again for the awesome trade, Exiled! (1,814 characters)

2004 bottle shared with friends the night before DLD!

Deep, dark red color in my glass. Strong raspberry aroma also smells bready & malty. Reminds me of those Whoppers malted milk balls. Yeah, definitely Whoppers. Awesome.

Aged bramble taste with mild fruity sweetness before chocolate and boozy caramel flavors interject. Tons of malt; full-bodied. Alcohol is more prevalent than in other Kuhnhenn brews but still balances nicely.

Been looking forward to cracking this for awhile, and KRE didn't disappoint. Very tasty; wish I could drink this more often. (559 characters)

Big thanks to Jack for this awesome "extra". 2007 bottle.

A - mostly still but an aggressive swirl produced a few bubbles. Deep red, looks like sangria.

S - raspberries, smells like candy.

T - initially a big blast of tart raspberries. Caramel and chocolate follow.

M - thin to medium. Not terribly smooth. Can taste some alcohol in the finish.

Really good. Very glad to have tried it. Would like to try this fresh. (425 characters)

2007 bottle.

Pours a dark murky ruby with a really tiny tan head that dissipates immediately. Lots of alcohol lacing on the glass if I quaft then beer. Lots of nice yeast floaties despite a careful pour.

Aromas begin with a lot of raspberries, actually raspberry tootsie rolls, crazy. There is a sweet malt base with a little bit of extra chocolate, maple, vanilla and hints of earthiness. Quite one dimentional, but really intense. Alcohol emerges as it warms.

The tastes begin just like the aroma, it really reminded me of a raspberry tootsie roll filled with a bit of alcohol. The flavors underneath were quite nice, with slight hints of brown sugar/molasses, a bit of maple and maybe some vanilla.

The mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with only a bit of carbonation. Finish is sweet but surprisingly not cloying, despite e lack of carbonation and the big ABV.

Overall this beer was very rich in flavor, but a little one dimentional. It was great to try and sip for a while, but the small amount was enough for me. A very interesting brew that is definitely well worth trying, but I don't NEED to have it again. A must for fans of any raspberry beers and beer geeks in general. (1,189 characters)

HUGE thanks to StFun for this one! Small bottle. Wow! Nice reddish/brown pour with a very small khaki head that fades. There are a million things going on here! Amazing real sweet and sour raspberry going on with sweet malts, pie spices, crisp crust, and more. Amazing! Wonderful!!! (282 characters)

2007 Vintage

Pours dark reddish brown with no head. I can tell it has some carbonation, just doesn't look like it. Smells like raspberries, chocolate, and toffee. Not complex, but nice.

This tastes almost like a chocolate and caramel Turtle candy with raspberries. Very strange, but nice. Tastes like something that would be great to pout over vanilla ice cream. There is no bitterness for balance, but I honestly didn't expect that there would be.

Medium bodied with only a small amount of carbonation. I think the amount of carbonation is right for this beer. The alcohol is well hidden for 13.50%, and a 187 ml bottle is the proper serving size for this beer. An interesting beer, which I am glad I had the chance to try. (728 characters)

2007 mahogany waxed vintage split two ways and poured into an Ithaca Beer Company tulip.

A: Pours a deep ruby-brown color with almost no head at all.  A ring appears briefly and then disappears leaving a calm, deep body resting gently in the glass.  No lacing, but considerable legs. 

S: Tons of raspberries up front with a good bit of chocolate and caramel.  Absolutely incredible aroma.  A bit of booze on the back end as well, but mostly a decadent raspberry treat. 

T: Raspberries come out immediately and linger through the entire sip, with some chocolate, toffee, and a touch of caramel.  The raspberries provide a really nice tartness that complements the sweetness of the chocolate and caramel.  There is a bit of a booziness, which is surprising, considering this is a 2007 bottle, but it's not overly hot or boozy.  Just incredible.

M: Fuller side of medium-bodied with very little carbonation, with adds a little to the viscosity.  Thicker, still, and coating.  Really nice feel on the tongue with a very slight drying effect after each sip. 

D: This beer is killer.  Fairly complex, tasty, odd, and just delicious.  There's not a ton there, but what is there is outstanding.  It's like drinking a raspberry chocolate cake without all the sweetness.  Wonderful, wonderful beer! (1,309 characters)

2007 vintage.

Pours a very dark ruby red color that's almost brown with plum colored edges and a thin beige ring that slowly fades. Not much in the way of lacing.

Sweet, slightly boozy aroma that surprisingly is still fruit forward after four years. Lots of sweet dark raspberry and other dark fruits along with some dark chocolate cake, caramel and toffee. Subtle medicinal/syrup quality.

Fuller bodied than expected with some soft carbonation and a really nice balance of sweet, syrupy fruit, silky dark malts and subtle boozy heat/sweetness. Similarly to the aroma, there is still a surprising amount of juicy raspberry and other dark fruit notes. Faint tartness with some cranberry before being countered by hits of chocolate cake, caramel and toffee. Slightly syrupy but this doesn't hurt the mouthfeel much. A nice boozy warmth in the finish but the high ABV is excellently masked with only little heat. This beer is dangerously drinkable at this stage so 6.3oz is a perfect serving. Complex with a good amount of raspberry still in there. The perfect drink for after a huge holiday meal. (1,100 characters)

2007 vintage, served in a tapered tasting glass.
This is the 2nd bottle of this i've tried, had this vintage before a couple years ago. My opinion of this beer hasn't changed, the experience was virtually the same as the first time.

Pours a murky brown, viscous body, some stray trails of carbonation struggle to reach the surface around the edges. Little to no foam, though a string of bubbles cling to one side when first poured that quickly fade due to the high alcohol.

Smells tooth-meltingly sweet, like liquid candy. Mellow raspberry and tootsie rolls. Some light oxidation, and vague muddled notes of toffee or orange at room temperature.

Raspberry tootsie pop flavor, fairly one-dimensional. Once you taste it, that's all you can taste. No complexity or nuance. Candy sweet, syrupy, rich. Low carbonation, cordial-like. So sweet you almost don't notice the booze. Honestly i'd drink straight Chambord over this, it's basically the same thing minus the tootsie roll flavor.

Thanks to Eric for sharing this one! (1,025 characters)

This 2007 vintage is courtesy of weirdbeer, thank you immensely Joe! This one puts a medium bodied and syrupy amber to red in color. The aromas are like concentrated Raspberry jam. It smells delicious! It's also very malty. It tastes of sweet and tart raspberry jam. Oh my god its delicious and ultimately spectacular. What a masterpiece! This beer is almost unfathomable. It is hands down one of the best beers I've ever had, and that means a lot. (448 characters)

6.3oz bottle poured into a snifter. 2007 vintage. Huge thanks to thabigmp for sharing this amazing beer. My first Eisbock and Kuhnhenn.

A: Dark brown with deep red highlights. Very hazy. Very small head that fades quick and leaves hardly any lace. But I wasn't expecting much with 13.5%ABV.

S: Amazing. Chocolate covered raspberries. Very creamy smell. A touch of alcohol. A surprising cheesecake aroma.

T: Just like a chocolate raspberry cheesecake, and boy do I love cheesecake. Very sweet without being to sweet. No alcohol is perceptible at all.

M: Full bodied. Light carbonation. Very creamy and chewy. Rich.

O: An amazing beer! Not a whole lot to say except if you get a chance to try it don't pass it up. (717 characters)

187ml red waxed bottle poured into a tumbler, 2007 vintage.

Pours a hazy red/amber color with basically no head, the aroma is chocolate, raspberry and slight booze, and oddly cheesecake its great.

Taste is also chocolate Raspberry cheesecake, it's awesome! Very rich, smooth crisp. And very refreshing which is odd given the abv its smooth and super drinkable very high abv but no. Problem. Amazing beer! (408 characters)

6.3 oz bottle dated 2007 from the 2010 Winter Solstice release

Only my second occasion with this brew; split with my wife on a beautiful fall evening.

A. Pours brown with some orange and red with a slightly foamy tan/ brown head.

S. Cocoa, caramel, some slight oxidation notes, raspberry, and cherry. No apparent booziness on the nose, which is pretty incredible.

T. Starts out with lots of chocolate and some nice red fruit - a mix between raspberry and cherry. A nice, but subtle tartness.

M. Medium body with low carbonation and some slight tartness.

D. Not nearly as much fruit character as the last time I had it, but very good. I'm sad that the raspberry faded though; I'll have to hope that they produced this again. (729 characters)

Old Ale/Barleywine/Eisbock
6.3 oz bottle from 2007 poured into a snifter. Thanks jrallen34 for this huge Want!

Pours clear rust brown with pink highlights with some bubbles, but hardly a head. A solid oz of dark dregs at the bottom. Great malty notes in the aroma, akin to a fine barleywine with some oxidation. Dark fruit, toasted coconut, dessert wine. And raspberry.

The raspberries, initially mute really open up with time and warmth. Still, the fruit has died down quite a bit, assuming it was strong to begin with. Tastes very fruity: figs, dates, prunes and raspberries. The taste is sharp and tannic, with a slightly bittering and amazingly dry finish. The alcohol warmth and raspberry dessert linger.

Medium body and very low carbonation. The 13.50% ABV is hardly felt. Haters might call it cough syrup like but this is right up my alley. A tremendous beer! I have no doubt that Kuhnhenn has it down when it comes to strong ales and lagers (?).

A - Pours a dark raspberry brown with a thin ring of off-white foam. Minimal lacing.

S - It's a fantastic tart raspberry smell with sweet chocolate in the background.

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 - Creamy medium body with very low, but present, carbonation.

O - An amazing beer that hides the high abv. well. I could drink a lot of these very easily. (518 characters)

2007 Vintage. Poured from 187 ml bottle into a tulip. Poured at cellar temperature.

Holy crap, when I opened the bottle an immediate rush of raspberry and chocolate goodness assailed me.

Poured it delicately into my tulip glass. Pours a deep mahogany with deep red verging on purple highlights. Does have some carbonation which is exciting and unexpected. No head to speak of but a ring of tight tan bubbles forms around the glass.

The smell of the beer is unbelievable. It's a tart and tangy raspberry chocolate punch to the senses. The alcohol is also present on the nose but not in an uncomfortable way.

The taste is initially like chocolate covered cherries and other red fruits. The mid palate experiences more of the chocolate notes and it finishes with a nice raspberry zing at the end. Really a work of art.

The mouthfeel is medium to medium heavy which is to be expected. No real carbonation to speak of that I can taste, again, to be expected.

Overall this little big beer is a true gem. Definitely to be savored with a big cigar or some good chocolate. Best "fruit" beer I have ever had. (1,109 characters)

2007 from the 2010 winter solstice bottling.

Pours a reddish amber with three lonely bubbles clinging to the tulip. No head whatsoever.

Raspberry jam and alcohol on the nose. Some sweet malts as well. I keep going back to smell it. Vibrant raspberries after all this time. Crazy!

Taste is delicious - The 13.5% abv is well hidden. Raspberries dominate - tart and sweet as you'd expect, then some rich maltiness and a bit of booze on the finish.

Mouthfeel is decent - could use some carbination. Medium bodied and a bit sticky.

Overall - delicious beer. Thanks to turdfergison for sending this my way in the light whale bif. (628 characters)

Poured from a 6.3 oz. bottle into a tulip. 2007 vintage. Thanks to readbaron for sharing this.

Appearance: This has a medium brown color with a raspberry tint. Slightly transparent edges. No head, this is pretty flat, just a few stray bubbles.

Smell: A definite blast of raspberries in the nose. This is so much better than what I had heard from other people at this point. For a 2007, this smells like raspberries just picked off the bush. Some malt sweetness behind the tart raspberry aroma.

Taste: The flavor is full of raspberriess, both sweet and sour and everywhere in between. Some toffee and malt flavors give it a kick of sweetness and a little bit more depth, but the focus is on the raspberries. Just fantastic.

Mouthfeel: The bottle is pretty much flat, and the body is fuller than medium. A light tart acidity is there, as is a light booziness.

Overall: Wow, this beer impresses. Unfortunately the bottles are so tiny and they have not made it in four years, so finding more seems to be (1,004 characters)

Dark reddish i color with no head. Nose is mostly chocolate, a little booze and a hint of the raspberries. Taste is like a raspberry covered tart raspberry that you put in your mouth with some chocolate on your finger. Great creamy mouthfeel. Great beer! (289 characters)

A tiny 187ml green bottle. Sticker on the cap states this was bottled in December 2007. Poured into a snifter, this brew appears a hazed brown color with some ruby highlights. When held to the light, it shows a better clarity and deep ruby red coloration with some lighter orange around the edge. This brew looks still until it is swirled and a few bubbles come out of solution and sit around the top before collecting around the outside of the glass. A swirl provides faint spotty lacework and legs of alcohol slowly creep back down to the brew.

The smell is a huge blast of raspberry puree. Very strong with a raspberry sweetness that smells somewhat medicinal. The nose is a bit fusel with minor notes of chocolate malt hiding underneath the bold raspberry. As the brew warms up, the raspberry goes back and forth between characteristics that are almost candy-like with its sweet smell to more earthy and herbal with a more natural character. Once the brew hits room temperature, the chocolate comes out in full force and seemingly overtakes the once dominating raspberry character. What a fantastic experience to be able to let this brew evolve in my glass. Across the back is a faint sweetness somewhat like vanilla and spiced yeast indication but I am stretching. While this brew smells great, it is almost not even beer-like except for some chocolate malt notes.

The taste is tart, natural raspberry flavoring with a bold solvent kick of alcohol. There is a backing of chocolate malt present which adds a nice unexpected depth to this brew's flavor. Think alcoholic chocolate covered raspberry... that is exactly what this brew is. There is an herbal to earthy flavoring to this brew that seems like a combination of the raspberry addition mixed with herbal hops. There is a bit of a bitterness which is welcomed that counters the sweetness and bold alcohol nature of this brew. Only once this brew exceeds ideal temperatures do the first indications of this offering come out that this is in fact an eisbock. The expected spicy yeast flavors were completely hidden by the raspberry but they faintly come out once warm and provide an interesting accent to the raspberry flavor. Well done. This brew has a lasting flavor of chocolate residing in the mouth.

This is a full bodied brew with a light, enjoyable level of carbonation. It is a very good after dinner sipper that I fully enjoyed. Let's not kid ourselves, this is a 13+% brew and it hits hard as expected. The alcohol is not hidden but it is incorporated in a way that is every enjoyable and not distracting at all. I have been wanting to try this brew for awhile and I was expecting this to be a sweet mess. Color me impressed, this was not at all what I thought it would be, it was better. I actually enjoyed this brew even more than my review score would let you believe. I fault this brew for being so bold with fruit that I have a hard time accepting this as an eisbock. (2,943 characters)

Big thanks to FooFaa for bringing this one to Ffej of July IX. If I had to guess I think it was an 07

A - Pours brownish red with a small half finger tall white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of chocolate covered raspberries with a few helping hints of toffee, vanilla, oak, and some warm booze. This one has a lot going on.

T - Starts off with an intense raspberry puree flavor quickly giving way to a mix of sweet chocolate, vanilla, dry oak tannins, and some warming booze. It is quite sweet but the other flavors help to keep in check as much as they can. The finish is a mix of sweetness and light booze, lingering for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Slick, smooth, feel with a good amount of booze still present.

O - This one is definitely a sipper but it is a very good one. It has so much flavor going on. It is a perfect desert beer, but that is truly its only fault, I doubt this would taste as good as it does paired with a big juicy steak. Glad I finally got to try it again. (1,048 characters)

(bottle courtesy of alexsdad06! 2007 vintage) Pours into a rochefort chalice. Pours cloudy dark brown-red color with no real head. Smells like a raspberry truffle with a bit of alcohol. Mmmmm. Taste is sweet and tart. The raspberry is quite tart with sweetness also coming from the fruit and seemingly from chocolate and caramel. Full bodied with a slick texture. Finish is very smooth and has some noticeable alcohol, but its not distracting. This is a very unique beer and I’m very happy to have tried this. Many, many thanks Brad! (535 characters)
