Great Stout! High in alcohol, so this hurts the drinkablilty a bit, but I would recommend this brew to anyone stopping by Kuhnhenn Brewery. Taste is what a stout should be. Color is dark, but not extrememly thick. The smell, yum! This is my type of Stout, as it isn't too overwhelmingly coffee. Great job Kuhnhenn! I agree, Kuhnhenn needs to bottle more, cause this brew would make a nation proud.

A - this stout pours extremely dark with a light brown dark head, the body is dark enough to obscure any carbonation

S - roasted malts dominate the aroma, with strong supports of bittersweet chocolate and coffee beans

T - the strong roasted malts dominates the taste as well, with a peculiar addition, a sharp almost medicinal (but not unwelcome) cherry note, just for a brief second, then the coffee/bittersweet chocolate come in for the coup de grace, and they come in huge, a big flavorful finish

M&D - a great brew, a little sharp for some, not for me though, a great blend of flavors ordered in a tongue-pleasing way, a very tasty beer, well done, man i wish Kuhnhenns still sold 12 oz bottles.

from the tap at the brewery. 1st let me say thank you Jessica for brewing this beer it rocked, I would like to get some bottles of this. This was as good or a little better than your other beer. that said poured black with mahogany edge with a dark tan head. aroma alcohol which is 12.5 on the menu. a lot of roasted malts and chocolate with some strong coffee. flavor the alcohol really comes out strong and it was difficult to get some of the other flavors out but as it warmed up the roasted malts and coffee came out the chocolate did come out when I left the beer in my mouth for a few seconds. over I think this was a awesome beer and as far as I know this is Jessica 2nd brew
