Bottled in 2007/187ml. Popped with a slight hiss but poured with no head. Full fruity nose (mild port-like) but slightly medicinal. Fruity, full taste, some heat, Nice clean finish for age. Very little oxidation.

2007 vintage. Poured into a snifter. Thanks again for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a very deep blood red crimson color. Surprisingly, some white bubbles formed.

(S)- Quite a dense array of candied raspberry bramble bush in all. Subtle raisin and earthy sherry-like notes.

(T)- Quite a nice leathery component combined with a sweet sherry-like profile with some cocoa and raisin with sweet raspberry and grape fruits.

(M)- Quite sweet but also a superbly well hidden ABV. Very similar to a dessert wine in my tastes.

(O)- A very big but very successful fruit beer that is best saved for dessert or a nightcap. I definitely understand why they bottled this in those tiny 8oz. bottles since it is actually the perfect amount to enjoy this beer by.

2007 vintage purchased at Winter Solstice 2011; 187 mL bottle

A - Pours a clear red/brown color with no carbonation to speak of.

S - Smell is mostly a wonderful aroma of currents, with a faint amount of alcohol and tootsie roll thrown in.

T - Taste seems to constantly change within a sip. At times fruity, at times boozy, definitely some tootsie roll. Unfortunately, also some unpleasant medicinal tastes and as others have mentioned, some astringent notes. Also a bit boozy, but pretty mild considering the abv. Definitely a mixed bag that doesn't live up to the aroma, but is still mostly enjoyable.

M - The astringency kills the mouthfeel a bit. Otherwise slightly syrupy.

O - Definitely an interesting one from Kuhnhenn. Haven't had this before, so I have no idea what the aging has been. There are a lot of nice things going on here, but unfortunately some unpleasant flavors prevent this from being great.
