Appearance: dark ruby beauty. Thin, small bubble head.
Smell: rich, like candied raisins, and toffee. Very nice.
Taste: as rich as the nose predicts. A rich dessert in a snifter, or as an aperitif as I'm enjoying this now.
Overall: dangerously drinkable. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. I need mo.

Enjoyed in a snifter

A: pours a deep deep brown with a thin layer of fine brownish head that dissipates almost immediately, leaves a tiny amount of lacing 4
S: nice scent notes of dark fruits, I'm also picking up grapes and grape nuts, very nice and unique 4.5
T: really unique and complex taste, begins with grapes then kicks over to something a bit deeper and maltyer and then it has an interesting hint like Thai food which is very nice 4.5
M: smooth, thick and syrupy, gentle carbonation tingle, leaves the mouth sticky and thick with saliva, very slight alcohol burn 5
O: a delicious and clean and unique brew with a great complexity and depth 5

Date: 03/10/12
Type: 12oz. Bottle
Vintage: 2011
Glass: Plastic Popcorn Courtesy Cup

Snuck this treat into the AMC movie theatre in NJ, via my wife's Louis Vuitton purse(the bottle was pre-chilled). Funny part is they serve beer and drinks, but only macro junk.

Pours a dark brown mahoghany in color w/ red hues w/ a 1/3 finger white head that left nice lacing. The appearance was the only part I struggled with, had to wait until the movie screen was bright and/or flashed to get a good look. Aromas of dark fruits, biscuit, caramel malts. The taste was of dark fruits(fig/raisin) up front, leading into some boozy spiceness, and finished w/ Belgian yeast and breadiness. Medium bodied and lush w/ carbonation levels on point for a typical German Dopplebock. The drinkability was excellent for what this brew is. I drank the 12oz. bottle without a struggle due to the 12.5% ABV being well masked.

Overall, this was a very good brew that despite stepping outside the box, as a suped-up dopplebock(tripelbock), still conformed to the German style. Would gladly drink this brew again, but still prefer a regular top-notched Dopplebock better.

The movie, Gone, was excellent, but maybe the beer made it better.

A: Pours a brown toffee like color with tiny tan bubbles coating the oatside of the glass. Still and lifeless after the initial pour and settling.

S: Smell of toffee, roasted caramel, extra sweet malt presence

T: Extremely sweet and slick buttery tastes coming off the bat. Very light bittering present, mostly fruity raisin, yellow plum flavors and caramelized sugars all over. Butterscotch and english barleywine-esque in a lot of ways, but dryer and less bitter. Definitely some booze present.

M: Thick body with a light carbonation.

O: This is good, but not $8.99 good for a 12 oz bottle. Always a pleasure to try all things Kuhnhenn but they do better on just about every other release comparatively.

Just the depth of the color of this clear, dark mahogany says something's up.

Uncomparible in the thickness of dark cherry/grapes/apples mixed with darkest rum alcohol fire.

The taste is everything it previously lead you to believe. Old world fruitiness and underlying fermented abv warmth.

I really like the Kuhnhenns brews and pub. It takes a few true craft brewers to concoct these idiocenrtrc brews that are isolated aberitions of perfection.

2011 batch. pint glass

a - pours a nearly opaque, murky chestnut brown with faint red highlights. no head or lacing on this one, just a thin film.

s - fruitcake, honey, candied cherries, prunes. just a ton of dark sweet boozy fruit.

t - sugary carmel malt with tons of sweet fruits. booze soaked maraschino cherries, prunes, fig, port. finishes dry with a faint earthy bitterness. alcohol taste is well hidden.

m - syrupy with barely there carbonation.

o - kind of hard to drink due to the massive sweetness, almost cloying at times. this is definitely a dessert beer or one to share with a friend. given the $6/bottle price i probably won't be returning to this one.

Deep dark burnt brown and yes it has ruby highlights indeed. Carbonation is apparent from the bubbles I see, but head is not as it looks still. This is one opaque beer, held to light and can't see through, though it glows nicely. The aroma is faint, but contains some appropriate scents. Raisin, plum and brown sugar, vanilla and caramel. A truly distinct raisin, plum flavor / malt explosion. Undertones of cocoa are present as well. Some hop charecter is present, but faint. Slight flavor of alcohol and hotness. Mouthfeel is full but slick, kinda of oily. A truly tasty brew! A sipper to be sure. More carbonation would be nice.

Picked up at the brewery on our Christmas trip home. 12oz. Very dark brown pour, a ring and whisps of off white bubbles on top.

Aroma, not what I would call potent. A mellow prune and raisin. Also bready malt, light toffee. More mellow than others I've had from them.

Taste, a little stronger than the nose. Bready German malt goodness. Caramel covered raisin. Some fruitiness, pear, grape. Kind of an unsweetened fruitcake. Not as sweet as other Khunhen brews either.

Good medium body, coats pretty well. Low carbonation, not much sweetness to cut through though. A mold warming from 12.5.

Very German in style. Honestly my least fav from them do far. It is good, they've just set the bar high.

Thanks, Sean.

Dark tawny appearance with minimal carbonation. Actually looks a lot like port.

Smells surprisingly doppelbock-like. A lot of dark fruit and toasted grain, raisins and dates. Faint soy sauce and molasses, not too sweet.

Heavy and rich palate, very fruity (raisins, berries, dates), some nice Munich malt flavors. Amazed by how German this tastes. There's no booziness at all, and it avoids cloying sweetness. Finishes toasty, slightly nutty. Remarkably clean stuff. I'm impressed.

2011 Vintage from the Winter Solstice Party.

Pours chestnut brown with a hint of ruby seeping through. Fairly thick yet a bit translucent. Head is quite minimal and lace is nowhere to be seen. For a beer of it's strength, it looks much like I'd expect.

The aroma is a blast of raisins, some caramel, and some spicy hops. A little bit like a scotch ale in the aroma but the fruitiness really differentiates it. At first the aroma is quite blatant but it dies down quickly.

The taste reminds me a bit of 4D. Obviously breweries have tendencies, and I think they use some of the same hops for this as 4D. When it comes down to it, the main differences for me are the ease of drinkability in this and the raisins.

It also resembles a Dubbel in some regards as it has a bit of bubblegum flavour in the beginning. It rides a caramel foundation and then emerges into spicy hops and dark fruit.

The mouthfeel is a little thin for what I was expecting. It's medium thick and medium heavy. I'm somewhat glad actually, as I could swish it around with lower carbonation and coat my mouth with it rather than fight through fierce carbonation. The only downside was an excess of stickiness in the finish but when you get higher in alcohol what can you do.

Overall, this was a pretty good beer. I was quite nervous going into it as it's a bock and I haven't found many that have really suited my tastes. Perhaps Dopplebocks are more up my alley.

I can say that drinkability was very nice, but there's some definite heat, none of which affected the flavour, but it did make me take my time drinking this, and I don't normally find most things boozy. I wish I had got a couple more of these at the Winter Solstice, but it may be around again.

2011 vintage, released at the Winter Solstice party 12/2011. 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Deep, ruby red color with barely any head at all. Looks fairly thin. I do have limited lager experience, but the thin body is generally what I've seen from doppelbocks I have had.

S: Is that bourbon mixed with grape? This isn't barrel-aged, to my knowledge, but that hits me first. I get some vanilla and maybe a touch of cherry on the end. Interesting smell, indeed. I am intrigued. Caveat: my nose is still a bit stuffy, so I may not getting all the best of this.

T: Wow, are you sure this is a 13.5% beer? I don't get the booze at all. I am getting a little bourbon and a lot of grape on the finish. Maybe a little plum. This is going down very easily, but it is definitely warming. Booze is hidden well, and only seems to start to show itself as it warms up.

M: It's thin, just as it looks, but it really is full flavor. The taste lingers on the tongue. I just can't decide how much I really like it.

O: This is another solid beer by Kuhnhenn. Honestly, do they make a bad one? I don't have much experience with lagers, but this was an interesting try. I think I should probably check out some of their other, less intense lagers and then revisit this.

A: The beer is very dark brownish amber in color and poured with a thin off white head.
S: There are light aromas of sweet malts and toffee in the nose along with some hints of alcohol.
T: The taste is both malty and sweet with flavors of brown sugar, raisins and toffee.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and thick on the palate with a light amount of carbonation. There is some warming from the alcohol in the finish.
O: The beer is relatively easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well masked from the taste.

I had the wonderful luck to try this beer fresh from the fermentation tank when the keg was first tapped and when it was half way through. The initial pours I had were phenomenal. The Munich Malts were so thick, it literally tasted like a milkshake and was grayish-brown in color, matching the maltiness. Weighing in at 13.5% ABV, you wouldnt even know you were drinking a beer unless you were told. Highly recommended!

On Tap at Rattle & Hum for a Kuhnhenn event. Technically this version is not aged and is still fermenting at the brewery, but they tapped some for this event.

Being that this beer is still super young, the beer looks like dirty mud water coming out of the tap, looks like it was taken from a swamp. A nice amount of swamp water head floats on top like a milkshake, some stickies. It looks terrible, but thats not the beers fault. it's intriging to say the least. Smell is alot of sweetners including brown sugar, some caramel, raisin and bread, it smells weird, but I cant stop sniffing it. Taste is on the sweet side with caramel/toffee influence and some English backbone. I get brown suga, whoppers, yeast, a splash of alcohol(estimated at 12-14%). Feel is kinda flat, the body has not came together yet, goes down like milk. I enjoyed this and am interested what an aged bottle of this would turn into. Much better than that Sam Adams creation by leaps and bounds, even at this infant stage.

Kuhnhenn's Dark Heathen Tripple Bock (2008) pours up a bit flat w/o much effervescence, but it manages to release enough carbonation to create a wafer thin beige head that rings the glass above a hazy, chestnut brown-burnt umber body. The complex, rich nose has a huge melanoidin maltiness complimented by a lovely toastiness that's reminiscent of freshly baked sourdough bread. There's a touch of pancake fruitiness with a warming alcohol presence, but a bit of tartness is starting to creep in. Very generous! The flavor is dominated by a rich, melanoidin maltiness that is marked by the faintest touch of spicy bitterness. The warm, full-bodied finish is a bit cloying with some uncharacteristic tartness. Dark Heathen is a love it or hate it kind of a beer. I'm not totally convinced this one cellar-aged so well, so if you've got any hiding in your cellar...it's time to partake as I don't see this one getting any better. Being a professed malt man, I'm just happy to have gotten to try this labor of love from Dragonmead & the Kuhnhenn Bros. Here's to the Dark Heathen in us all!

12oz bottle, vintage 2006, into Darkness sniffer.

A - Pours a brownish red color, tan-colored head, thin ring around the glass with some bubbles randomly popping here and there, and some thin film on top.

S - Big dark fruity nose, caramel, smooth alcohol, slight oak. Smells like a smooth aged barleywine. The 13.5% is there, but it's very subtle and smooth...age has done this one well.

T - Dark fruits, figs, raisins, plums. Slight burnt sugars, caramel, oak, slightly oxidized on the finish. Tastes like a well aged barleywine. Smooth...

M - Medium, smooth, good carbonation.

D - Very enjoyable and glad I got the chance to try this one. More like a barleywine then a doppelbock, but who cares, I liked it. Probably not many floating around but try if you can find.

Poured into a mini snifter. Small off white head. No lace left. Color is a dark dark brown. Pretty much black.

Aroma: Dark fruits, cherries, raisins, plums. Big malt profile. Wow, pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Dark fruits, cherries, grapes, raisins, plums. There is a spice flavor, but I can't determine what it is, but I am thinking it is ginger. Not to bad.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, just a touch of heat. Not to bad for 13.5%. Pretty full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation.

Overall, I was very impressed with this beer. Way better than the SA Triple Bock. Simply a great beer for the style. Hardly and booze shows as well. I highly recommend this one.

Bottle. Pours a thick dark brown with ruby highlights and little to no head. Aroma is lots of sweet caramel malts, fruity, raisins, a hint of rum and a small hop note. Flavor is tons of molasses, plums, cognac. Very rich and satisfying with a warming finish from the big alcohol. Thick, sticky mouth feel with minimal carbonation.

Another Kuhnhenn beer from the hoppymeal, poured into a snifter.

Pours dark, dark copper that shows through as a reddish amber when held up to light. There is a small thick creamy tan head that hangs around on top as a swirl and a collar. Not much lacing, but plenty of boozy legs after each sip.

The aroma is huge with caramelized sugar, dark roasted malts and dark fruits. There is a little booze, rum especially, in the nose as well.

The taste has a slight sour yeast flavor up front, but it doesn't take anything away from the taste honestly (unlike some of my recent Kuhnhenn experiences). The dominating flavors are caramelized brown sugar, toffee, dates, chocolate and port. The finish is sugary sweet and the booze is actually not that noticeable.

The mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy and drinkability is as low as one would expect for a triple bock. Enough carbonation to be noticed.

This is a solid dessert sipper and probably better than I was expecting given the reputation of "triple bocks." Sure, it's thick and not extremely drinkable but it's got a ton of flavor.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of hoppymeal, thanks again for sending this Derek, 2006 vintage, last beer I split with Bill yesterday, color is a deep dark mahogany, close to two inches of light tan head that was pretty foamy leaves a small cloud later on, not much lacing though, aroma consists of port wine, caramel, toffee, booze, raisins, dates, sweetness, and rich sugars, flavor starts off quite sweet with various malts, sugar and dark fruits in the middle, finish is harshly hot with a big sweet aftertaste that lingers, wish it mellowed out a little as it warmed but that was not the case, too strong for my palate, sweet, hot, and malty mouthfeel, medium bodied, good amount of carbonation, taste lingered a very long time, had a hard time getting though five or six ounces myself, very strong and heavy, sweetness makes drinkability even worse, for being three years old already this beer still needs to age a lot longer it seems, brew is still quite hot with alcohol warmth, I will be the first to say this is much better than the only other triple bock I have tasted which is Sam Adams, would like to try this another three years down the road to see how it evolves and mellows, worth trying

Huge thanks to d0b for bringing this over - 2008 Harms (I'll be it does!). I missed it at Winter Solstice so it's nice to get a crack at this one. Served in a pilsener glass.

A - Three fingers of tan foam that dissipates fairly quickly with a few patches of lacing. Murky raisin brown, with some chunky suspended solids - strangely uneven color throughout the glass. Even stranger - Dave's pour into my Kuhnhenn tulip is much darker! Still for a 13.5% to look this nice is pretty impressive.

S - There's definitely a lager twang and some sour yeast action going on, but also a healthy amount of raisin, dark fruit, bready malt, rum-cake, and a hint of leather. The alcohol is incredibly well-hidden in this one considering the ridiculously high gravity.

T - Lots of caramel, some hints of prune, raisin, date, and some vinous grape qualities as well. I get a sense this has aged very rapidly (thanks to Kuhnhenn's somewhat dubious bottling capabilities). Still it's really nice and more doppelbock than "Triple Bock" (and all the baggage associated with that term). There's also some tartness from the yeast - I get the sense it's a good thing we opened this now. The ABV is again, incredibly well hidden.

M - Solid residual stickiness, very creamy and silky smooth. Minimal carbonation. Very unfiltered cider-like in texture. Not as much as alcohol warmth as I expected.

D - The 6oz pour of this was plenty. The ABV is remarkably well disguised, but the buzz creeps up pretty quickly. The sour off-flavor also gets a bit distracting. I get the feeling that Triple (Trippel? Tripple?) Bocks may be too extreme, even for me.

Served from a 12 oz bottle in a tasting tulip at cellar temperature. This bottle was scored for me by my brother, BA bootz. It's got a scotch-taped inkjet-printed label on it, labeled "2008".

A - Clear, deep, mahogany brown with amber and crimson highlights. A sand-colored foamy head rises quickly, but dissipates within a minute to a very thin mat atop the surface. No lacing to speak of.

S - Raisins and figs with caramel and rum. Very malt-forward as would be expected for this style. Some buttery honey-biscuit notes in the background.

T - A ball of raisin paste, wrapped around a Sugar Daddy, stuffed inside a fig that's stuffed inside a plum that's floating in a mason jar of rum. Some yeasty tartness toward the back, and a decent hop dryness in the end help keep everything from getting too whacked out of balance, considering the muscular alcohol presence.

M - Slick going in, and tingly on the tongue. Decent carbonation rise. Thankfully not too syrupy thick. Swallow is substantial and velvety. Very nice for this style indeed.

D - Considering the amount of punch that this beer packs, I'm quite surprised and ultimately relieved that the malts aren't horribly cloying in an effort to mask the alcohol. When viewed as a drink for a one beer evening, it works very well, and is quite enjoyable.

A- Pours a deep, dark crimson with very little if any head.

S- Smell is very rich and enticing. Caramel, dark fruit, very malty, hard to detect any hop notes.

T- Deep and malty, raisins, creamy all the way through. The lack of hops make the deep sweetness a little overbearing.

M- Thick and sticky with very little carbonation.

D- This is the perfect sipper if your looking for a malty treat, it might be a little too sweet for some.

Many thanks to the ever generous hoppymeal for the bottle. Hard to believe I'm getting to try this one.

Vintage 2006

Appearance: It pours a darker brown color. It's moderately hazy, but there's plenty of light getting through giving it a slight dark cherry tint. The head is tan in color and is roughly a finger and a half deep. Retention was impressive given the high abv. Light speckles of lace lined the glass.

Smell: There's obviously an abundance of malt in this one. It smells sweet and sugary. Loads of caramel and toffee aromas. Dark fruits and dates are very prevalent. Smells like a heavy mix of raisin, plum, and prune. Scents of tobacco and leather emerge. Alcohol is noted, but for the abv, it doesn't smell that strong. My bottle notes 12.5%. Pretty impressive all-around. It's a tad weak, but maybe it'll open up more as it warms.

Taste: At first, it's very, very sweet. There's quite a bit of caramel/toffee malt flavor. Brown sugar is pretty prevalent. Dark fruit flavors of raisin and plum are noted. To a lesser degree, there is some light prune. It is a little earthy and features a nice tobacco-like flavor. It's a great complement to the other flavors and works well. Alcohol is rather faint. I'm actually astonished at how well it's blended. If I didn't know the abv, there's no way I'd buy that it's as high as it is. Very, very impressive. It finishes sweet. There's a lot of depth and flavor here. Very well done.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: As far as body is concerned, it's lighter than I'd hoped. It could use a little more. Carbonation is light and it feels nice and smooth. I'd just like it a little thicker. Drinkability is above average, but limited due to its strength. It definitely packs a punch.

Dark Heathen's very impressive. I've got a couple of small qualms with the nose and the body, but they're far from substantial. I am curious as to where the damn soy flavor is in this one. As a Tripple Bock, I was expecting some soy. ;~) All kidding aside. This is a damn good beer. Much more impressive than the Sam Adams Triple Bock, if you care to compare the two. Definitely recommended if you can find one. Thanks a ton, Derek.

Pours a deep burgundy color with a pillowy tan head that fades rather quickly leaving no lace.

Boat loads of sugary toffee and candied date in the aroma. Hints of earth and brown sugar, an off putting aroma wafts in the background that is somewhat hard to place. May be hints of diacetyl?

Not sure if it's diecetyl or not. Still shows in the mouth but isn't offending at all. Malty sweet with hints of chocolate, brown sugar, toffee, date, caramel, and whiskey. A nice sipper showing creamy accents and very little bitterness on the moderate finish.
