Kuhnhenn Fourth D Olde Ale (4D)
From Kuhnhenn Brewing – This deep Burgundy-colored ale has won countless awards in competitions all over the world. The intense, sweet caramel malty flavor and aroma develop into rich toffee and toasted marshmallow notes. As the beer warms, a light sherry note becomes apparent, along with a hint of heat from the high alcohol content. Despite the high ABV, this beer is brilliantly balanced and begs for another sip.
