2014 bottle poured into a tulip glass. Really expected to dislike this as I hate most beers this style. That was not the case at all. This one poured a dark brown with a ruby shade to it from the raspberry. Very minimal head. Smelled of raspberry puree, like a dessert. Tasted exactly as the aroma...lots of sweet delicious raspberry. Like a raspberry jelly roll. Very delicious and cannot tell that this is 15.5%. Feel had good carbonation and good body. Overall, VERY impressed with this. Just all around fantastic. Fruit presence was there and balanced out with the malt almost perfectly.

Rotten cough syrup. There must be something wrong with this bottle. Poured like muddy water. Smelled like old socks. Tasted like its been in the trunk of a car in the Florida heat since it was bottled. Everything else I've tasted from Kuhnhenn has been amazing and I was really looking forward to this bottle. Unfortunately whatever happened here will prevent me from ever trying it again. I have to believe this bottle spoiled and is not representative of what this beer is supposed to be.

Absolutely loved this one! Been wanting to get my hands on one for quite some time! Vintage 2012 split with a buddy.
Tons of berries on the note and the palate both. The alcohol was there but not near as hot as I would have thought.
The age has surely tamed it down. Super solid beer like nothing I've ever had before! Worth tracking down!
