On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor.
A: Beautiful black, it looks just like a tasty cup of coffee. A nice tan head about an inch in height. Also, a nice lacing down the side of the pint glass.
S: Cocoa! Chocolate! Coffee! What an outstanding smelling beer. If you were to give this to a non beer drinker, blind folded them, and made them smell it, they would seriously think they were about to drink a gourmet hot cocoa from Zingerman's Coffee Shop! I'm blown away at how good this baby smells!
T: Have you ever had Founders Breakfast Stout? I'm assuming you have! It tastes just like the Founders BS except for the amazing cocoa taste! Mocha Java, Cocoa, Toasty and Roasty! If that's even a word. Probably not but considering I'm reviewing a beer, I'm going to go with it! One of the finest beers I've tasted! Mainly because of the coffee/cocoa combo!
M: A little heavy but that is expected. Medium carbonation.
D: Wow! Give me a couple more of these. I could drink this for breakfast every morning with a smile on my face. One outstanding offering. I seriously am impressed!
Overall, Ashley's has had Southern Tier's Creme Brulee Stout on tap for the last couple of weeks and let me tell you, I dented that keg quite nicely. But the Kuhnhenn version blows the ST out of the water IMO. I like the ST because of it's high ABV but the Kuhnhenn just tastes that much better. A lot of coffee and a lot of cocoa. Not as rich as ST. Sorry Southern Tier, Kuhnhenn beats you out here!
Serving type: on-tap
