Served chilled and split between a snifter and a wine glass.
Thanks to Rfraga for this bottle.
Appearance: Kuhnhenn Blueberry Eisbock isn't the best looking beer I have seen, appearing an opaque brown in the glass, with a back light revealing a very strange green tint along the edges. A rough pour yields no more that a thin layer of tan coloured bubbles that fizz away almost instantly. A swirl coats the glass in some sticky alcohol legs.
Smell: Oh yes, this smells amazing! Massive juicy blueberry, sugar covered blueberry flavoured fruit pastels and some caramel make up the initial nose. As the nose opens up, the blueberry flavour increases to unbelievable levels and dominates everything else!
Once the beer approaches room temperature, brown sugar, sweet caramel, a little almond and preserved berries become apparent. There is no trace of the 15% in the nose.
Taste: The initial flavour is not quite as fruity as the nose suggested, with an odd, almost cough syrup note and some bitterness in the back end. A little warming seems to do the trick however, and allows a massive sweet blueberry flavour to emerge, along side caramel, brown sugar, a jammy note and a hint of chocolate. As with the nose, there is virtually no alcohol noted in the flavour.
Mouthfeel: The body is just shy of full and fantastically sticky, with a very low level of smooth carbonation. I think the carbonation might be a little low for most people, but it is just abut perfect for me.
Overall: Kuhnhenn Blueberry Eisbock isn't the most complex beer that I have had, but the amount of blueberry flavour is just so good that is certainly makes up for that! I certainly hope I'll be able to have this one again in the future!
