Kuhnhenn Chubbs Peterson

September 22, 2014

It’s been a long while since I last talked about Kuhnhenn Brewing. For those that don’t remember, Kuhnhenn is a great Michigan based brewery that started as a family hardware store facing staggering sales when big box stores started arriving in their town. However, their passion for homebrewing and the fact that they were already selling brewing supplies out of their store helped them transition from one small business to another.

The Chubbs Peterson is such a dark brown that in some lights it will definitely appear black but its bubbly white head will help remind you that this is definitely a Brown. The nose is a singular strong piney hop scent that hits you the moment it gets close. A solid middling body combined with a smooth and clean mouthfeel helps to make this a surprisingly drinkable high ABV beer.

Cocoa is the first flavor that you’ll notice, a deep but not quite bitter chocolatey flavor that pairs exceedingly well with the sweeter malt tastes that the brew has to offer. A traditional nutty flavor comes in alongside the cocoa and malt, rounding out the flavors and making this a seemingly standard brown. Which is right about when the strong piney hop finish will come on strong, bringing the brew to a close. The pine flavor lingers, along with a hint of nut, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready for the next sip.

I would definitely suggest the Chubbs Peterson if you can get your hands on it, and as always, keep your eyes peeled for any of Kuhnhenn’s great brews.
