Trade from deyholla. Need to send him another box for these beasts. Bottle says Winter Solstice 2010, but also 2007 on the bottle. I am assuming this is the 2007 sold at the 2010 party. Got some age for sure. Poured Feb 16, 2013. Pours murky brown with no head. Aroma is sweet dark fruits and a bit of bourbon and slight vanilla (though this is not the BB version). Very sweet fig, cherry and grape flavor. Bit of caramel and some booze. Pretty thick mouthfeel. Nice beer, though on the sweet side.
Got my hands on a fresher bottle at a tasting on 8/2/14. Same look. Aroma is a nutty caramel malt, brown sugar, yum. Flavor follows with big molasses and brown sugar, caramel, and definite hazelnut or pecan/praline notes on the finish that really make this beer. A big beer but so yummy it goes down easy. This is awesome...I guess aging it for 6+ years is too much. Just fine as is when you buy it. Oh yea.

Appearance: Dark crimson with a 1/2 finger of tan head that fades to the perimeter after a few minutes.
Smell: Citrus, biscuity bread, strawberries, hops.
Taste: Biscuit like malt combines nicely with orange and some hops. This is a pleasure to drink for the abv. If I drank this blind and you told me it was 13.5 abv, I wouldn't believe you. Alcohol is masterfully hidden.
Mouthfeel: Not the most carbonated beer in the world but that's expected for the gravity.
Overall: Solid beer, would drink again. Looking forward to many more from Kuhnhenn.

3.71/5 rDev -13.3%
A: pours a dark brown with half a finger of beige head that recedes into a thin ring with no lacing.
S: loads of caramel malts, vanilla, toffee, and sweet breads.
T: similar to the aroma, caramel and toffee dominate with sweet breads, vanilla, and a light alcohol burn. Somewhat Port-like.
M: thick body with low carbonation, this beer is sticky sweet.
O: a pretty decent old ale overall. It's a little on the sweet side with the high alcohol, but avoids being cloying.

Received this one from a recent trade with liamt07. Cheers!
Viscous beer, brown in color. Head is very timid.
The nose is strong. Caramel malts, sugars, some rum. Vanilla is too faint initially. In the mouth, this beer explode... Full bodied. Very good. Some caramel notes with a good bitterness. Love this. This is a strong and complex beer. Needs time to fully appreciated this one. Amazing that they are able to make this. I prefer this one, than the barrel aged version. Both are good, but this one is better to me.
