look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

big thanks to steimie for hooking it up! 2012 vintage.

a - pours a deep crimson maroon with no head and hardly any lacing to speak of. swirling the glass creates some fleeting life, but for the most part there is just a thing ring of white bubbles along the surface.

s - ripe plums. raisins. caramel toffee. bready and even toasted.

t - yum. great balance of fruits and sweetness. big caramel maltiness with toffee bread and toasted plums. very well balanced.

m - feel is really nice. booze is really well integrated and invisible to me.

o - overall, another win from kuhnhenn. really great example of the style and really well integrated booziness. VERY enjoyable.

2012 vintage, 11.0% abv per the label, served in a Tyranena snifter

A - an aggressive pour yields a dark copper with a fair amount of sediment, virtually no head noted

S - Carmel, vanilla, brown sugar, a hint of cinnamon

T - malty, vanilla, brown sugar, oak, a bit of apple and pear as well

M - very smooth, alcohol is well-hidden, full bodied

O - excellent scotch ale, great first offering I've had from Kuhnhenn, would love to check out more of their brews

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, 2012 Winter solstice bottling. Pours very hazy and cloudy deep ruby red color with a small foamy head that lasts a second, and reduces to a thin lacing ring. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, toast, brown sugar, raisin, prune, apple, pear, toffee, brown bread, tobacco, light pepper, leather, herbal, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, raisin, pear, apple, prune, tobacco, brown bread, leather, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, raisin, prune, pear, apple, brown bread, light chocolate, herbal, tobacco, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance and complexity of malt and fruity flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and fairly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent scotch ale! Great complexity of malt and fruity flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
