2.8/5  rDev -24.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Bottle shared by Sean I believe? Served in a 3 Floyds tasting snifter.

A - Dark cherry-colored body with a brownish glint to it. Pretty much still.

S - Brett, cherry skins, honey, and a strange chemical note that is evocative of the smelly markers from elementary school (I think there was a black cherry one).

T - Taste is less pleasant, with a mixture of cough medicine, cloying honey sweetness, and rotten cherries. Finishes sour and medicinal, and I don't get very much 'stout' at all.

M - Smooth, medium-full body, with well-hidden alcohol. Again, it's still. I was expecting a bit of carbonation for the style, but as a mead it's acceptable.

D - Not a very good experiment. The stout contributed virtually nothing, and the brett seems to be having an even worse impact. Just give me a Kuhnhenn mead or stout by itself.

thanks to bierenutz for hooking this up. enjoyed from a kuhnhenn snifter.

a - brew poured a somewhat lifeless black. some mild bubbling on the surface at best, no lacing, no nothing.

s - pretty tart. cherry. honey. strong vinegar acidic notes. not really pleasant, definitely tart.

t - the flavor, however, is actually quite good. leads with honey and sour cherries. some spiciness. bearing in mind that this is a braggot mead, it is actually quite tasty. definitely a dessert drink.

m - very juicelike. tart. not a beer by any means, but dangerously sippable.

o - overall, keeping in mind that this is a braggot/mead, it is pretty tasty. as advertised, cherry flavor is there and although not stouty, i see where thy are going with that. very much a sour cherry dessert drink. very enjoyable. annoying that it comes in such a tiny bottle, but very happy to have had a taste. wish i had a bigger glass of this.

Tiny bottle into a tasting glass. Thanks to knifestyles for sharing.

A: Clear, radiant red-brown body; still, but that's to be expected.

S: Cherry, honey, and intensely acrid metallic notes. Pennies, sourness, and alcohol. Interesting, but rather unpleasant.

T: Sharply fruity cherry up front, with sweet honey filling out the middle and a long, sweet finish. Simple, sweet, and tasty. Thankfully the metallic notes don't show up.

M: Smooth, flat, sticky. Appropriate.

O: I was told that this one was 17% ABV, and I'll believe it since it's from Kuhnhenn. I never would have guessed, though, based on the beverage itself. Yeah, it had distinct boozy notes, but nothing to suggest something so astronomical. As well as it hid its strength, though, it didn't quite deliver as much flavor-wise as one might hope - I definitely didn't get anything from the roasted malts or Brett. This was all about the cherries and honey, and it was enjoyable on that level. I certainly could have done without the dirty pocket-change nose, though.

Cheers!

60 or so bottle release (2 per person limit) at brewery. 187ml bottle with label that reads: "This sweet/tart Braggot is made from raw honey, roasted malts give this mead it;s stout like character, infused with cherries. Fermented with Brettanomyces Yeast"

Pours deep, dark brown. Smell is very interesting and includes dark malt, sweet cherry and different layers of sweet honey. Pours with almost no head, but is marked "sparkling" on the bottle. Flavors of sweet honey, tiny bit of roast, and subdued dark chocolate cherries. Mouth feel is slick, well rounded and lightly carbonated.
Very nice braggot overall, but cost is a bit high at $10 for the small bottle. Should be interesting to see how this develops with the Brett yeast over time.
