A - Ruddy brown with patchy tan wisps. Rustic as hell.
S - Lots of cherry, some caramel and toffee, hints of vanilla and musty wood. It contains many of the same elements as KRE. As it airs out, it smells better and better; as if the olfactory volume is being cranked up.
T - The taste is quite strange; not off-putting, but unusual to say the least. I get a fairly intense cherry flavor from this beer, like unsweet pie cherries. The tartness in this beer, and there is quite a bit, seems to come from the fruit, and not from wild bugs. The sweet maltiness is fairly exquisite, as tends to be the case with Kuhnhenn; notes of caramel, toffee, and rum-butter-vanilla are sublimely expressed. I had heard intitial reports of this beer being way hot and super sweet; it seems that time has interceded kindly for Old Brune. The booze is only present enough to temper maltiness; on the other hand, the sweetness is really enhanced by the alcohol.
M - Thinner, but quite silky. Some soft effervesence is present, despite the somewhat lifeless appearance.
O - This beer is what I imagine Quelque Chose would be like if it had carbonation.
