Bottle 96/246 shared by TheAlum in the GTMW ticket line...thanks Adam! - Pours murky brown, with a tan ring of head. Nose is vanilla and toffee, with raisin and dark fruit layers. Decadent and dessert-like. Taste is a lot of sweet bourbon barrel, caramel, lots of bready, sweet malt, and a long, lightly sharp finish. Smooth, with a fair amount of carbonation. Sharpness in the taste just detracts from something that started great.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours long black with a small lightly yellowed head. Nose is bourbon straight up. As it warms, loads of coconut and lamington tones come out. Awesome. Taste is very coconut forward with light vanilla tones and bourbon all round. It’s like a chocolate, coconut scroll. Crazy beer. Hugely unique. Freaking good. Finishes with a sharp coconut covered date tone. Perfect. Unbelievable beer

Bottle at a tasting. Dark brown pour, with a tan head. Sweet rich malts, raisin, bourbon soaked bread, vanilla, earthy, chocolate, and light smoke. I don’t like the scotch ales most of the time, even the base for this is just okay. But the bourbon treatment worked wonders. Good stuff.

Big thanks to Adam for this bottle. Shared with friends. The nose is bourbon heavy and malty. It smells really sweet and the bourbon adds a nice level. The taste blew me away. I am not a fan of scotch ales but the bourbon aging made this beer amazing. Sweet bourbon booze with a nice scotch ale base. Hope I can try this one again, outstanding!

A big, smooth beer that holds up to the bourbon. Malty, vanilla, and well-balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Draft @ taproom on Hunahpuh day. Black. Loose head. Nosing tobacco. Bourbon soaked tobacco and sweet malt candy. Caramel apple. A bit of bing cherry. Big and full, hot with late vanilla....Re-rate from bottle...the aroma is too boozy for me! But it tastes nice and feels much smoother than it smells.

Pours dark black brown in color with a dark tan head. The aroma brings sweet vanilla notes from the bourbon, a bit of the bourbon fumes for sure. The flavor is similar, but at the peat under the delicious vanilla bourbon flavors on a creamy smooth big body.

On tap @ CCB for Hunahpu’s release. Pours jet black with little head. Sweet malty aroma with a bit of vanilla and oak. Very smooth drinking. Starts malty and caramel and turns to vanilla and smoothness of the Bourbon. This is very very good and dangerously drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. Simply amzaing.+++Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was vanilla, cocoa, coconut, sweet malts and chocolate syrup. The flavor was vanilla, chocolate syrup, coconut, toasty malts, light fruity hops and a hint of cream. The finish was long cream, vanilla, coconut and chocolate syrup. Thick and full body. Wonderful

YUM. I want this barrel treatment to a Hunahpu!! The taste and aroma is very bourbony with great vanilla notes and the base beer is a bit hidden but still tasty with hearty malts and a nice bite.
