2007 Bottling

This is yet another great brew sent to me courtesy of hoppymeal, thanks Derek! Kuhnhenn's Raspberry Eisbock pours like syrup into my flute which creates a problem conjuring up a head. The body is dark and murky, the color of raspberry juice that while dark manages to glow around the edges of the glass when backlit. I did manage to get a thin skimming of head that quickly fizzled to nothing but a thin ecru collar. The thin collar that's there leaves behind sheet lacing that slowly slides back into the body.

The smell of this eisbock is out of this world good. Fresh ripe raspberry puree jumps from the glass right off the bat and is quickly followed by rich dark chocolate. There's a faint booziness in the back that only adds to the incredibly rich aroma. This beer is like dessert in a bottle, I can't get over how perfectly sweet the raspberry is and how perfectly rich the dark chocolate is. How do you get this aroma into a bottle?

The flavor is exactly what the aroma suggested. I thought it would be tough to keep up with the aroma on this beer but the flavor does just that. Freshly pureed raspberries are drizzled with molten dark chocolate. There's a quick flash of bread pudding but the chocolate and raspberries take center stage. This is one amazing beer!

This is a sipper/nightcap sort of beer but it fits this beer perfectly. The body is rich and thick with a coating quality that keeps the tongue busy for awhile. Mellow carbonation keeps this beer slowly moving while the raspberry and chocolate sweetness hangs out on the tongue for awhile.

Even though this is a sipper it's a beer I would be happy sipping all night long. The 13% isn't even noticeable and this beer just keeps on flowing.

This is one of the best beers I've had in awhile. I can't figure out how Kuhnhenn packed that flavor into this beer. I would love to get my hands on a case of this stuff. Thanks for the bottle Derek!

Pours a deep dark red burgundy that leaves behind no head nor lacing throughout. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate and raspberries. The flavor gave off a heavy sweet and light bitter with a long fruity, raspberry (lots of them), and caramel finish. Full mouthfeel along with an oily/sticky texture, and the carbonation was flat throughout. Overall, quite tasty beer with some underlying raspberry-like booze to finish off. Glad to have tried this one and I probably will not seek this one out as it is reported to be $30 a bottle.
