2017 vintage; consumed on 7/7/2023

Pours a deep, jet-violet body capped with a short-lived half-finger of soapy, off-beige foam, leaving an almost entirely blank cap, persistent, moderate collar, and no lasting lacing holding to the walls of the glass.

Aromas of hot blueberry crumble ease to brighter tones of fresh blueberry jam and slight cocoa undertones, drying to a semi-fruity, yeasty inflection to elevate.

Taste offers bright, jammy blueberry upfront, with toasted cacao intermingling with a subtle roast and brown sugar peak over the mid-palate as a distant hint of yeasty banana finds bittersweet chocolate on the back end of the profile.

Mouthfeel brings a medium-light body and a sudsy spritz of moderate carbonation, immediately drying as a juicy twang cuts through the mid-palate, leaving a subtle bittering over the back end as a distinctly creamy aspect lingers past the finish.

Myriad blueberry iterations stimulate a freshly fruity, endlessly evocative profile, an almost implausible depth brought to the forefront of this ambitious, consummate iteration of a style Kuhnhenn has come to execute so well.

A solid beer, the base eisbock is great, the blueberry for me doesn't add so much. Big mouthfeel. Some credit for aroma, but its merely fruit after all. Dangerous drinkability.

2017 12.7 ounce bottle. Bought from Kuhnhenn about a year ago. Served in a tulip.
Poured a deep reddish brown. Bubbly light khaki cap formed but quickly diminished. When held up to light it still appears dark brown with purple hints.
Rich nose of just underripe blueberry, blueberry pie, chocolate, red raspberry and some heat.
Blueberry pie, jam, then some very light tartness, sweet bready malts, caramel, raisins. Definitely some alcohol heat back there but does not distract from the taste. The blueberry complements the eisbock base.
Slick mouthfeel, warming and a bite of heat. Definitely appropriate considering the high abv.
Another fruited eisbock winner from Kuhnhenn.

This one pours a murky and turbid looking purple color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells like pure and authentic blueberry juice, caramel, chocolate, bready malts, and port.

Like all of the beers in this series, this is ridiculously good. The blueberry is so good here, juicy jammy and and deeply resonant. It's mostly sweet, with basically no tartness. Unlike the cherry or blackberry versions of this, you can taste the eisbock behind it fairly well, as there's some deep gnarly caramel tones, and a bit of boozy breadiness. The whole thing kind of tastes like a very sweet port wine with blueberry syrup. Does that sound bad? It isn't, this is delicious.

This is thick and syrupy, with a lower level of carbonation. It's definitely a slow sipper.

All of these eisbocks are as close as you can get to mead while still being beer. They are some of the most unique beers out there. I love them.

I was able to score a few pours of this at the Great Taste of the Midwest recently and was really impressed with this... The 15.50% is absolutely non existent in this beer... it drinks big but not boozy if that makes sense... The blueberries are done incredibly here... Not overpowering or sweet... yet not at all sour... hard to describe... a masterfully brewed beer... As good as the Raspberry or pretty damn close...
