Review of the 2014 bottling of Kuhnhenn Braggot.
This 2014 bottle is a 'Brewery only' release that was included in Kuhnhenn's Winter Solstice Party special mixed six pack.
This Braggot is exceptional IMHO, as brewmaster Todd Schwem found the perfect balance with this beer / mead . I am NOT a fan of honey flavored meads or honey in general, so this Braggot surprised me. I call it lightly sweet with a nice effervescence, and an earthy undertone(must be the beer portion) and a fresh baked shortbread- like character.... Gosh, just a nice quaff ! Very impressed with this.

Kuhnhenn's Description
2014 -Braggot – 12.8% ABV
The history of Braggot dates back centuries in northern Europe. Braggots are meads made with malted barley in addition to the honey. Our Braggot won a Bronze medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival. Brewed with wildflower honey and rich, dark specialty malts, the final product is akin to a Scottish Ale, with an added earthy depth and sweetness. Vinous notes combine with earthy flavors and a touch of toffee and biscuit character with just a hint of alcohol warmth. This is a complex sipper sure to warm even the coldest nights.

Had higher expectations for this... I'd say better than OK, but not great.
