On tap at the Hunahpus release. A: Pours black dark and evil, like all CCB Stouts. Very dark head, excellent retention and a crazy amount of lace. S: Loads of barrel, woody, with a huge blast of brandy. The roast, earth, chocolate, and spice of the base Hunahpu’s remains as well. It is hard to describe. T: Pure flavor explosion in your mouth. I really didn’t think you can improve on the base beer but they have. The brandy barrel just puts this one in another class. Huge brandy barrel without being over the top. Tons of charred malt, earthy chocolate, light chili’s and hints of vanilla. Rich chocolate, light molasses, and a dash of unicorn horn. M: Very full in body, bold, rich, perfect. D: Not really nor is it made to be. One I could sip on for days though.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even a trace of lighter color when held to a light source with a half finger dark chocolate mocha head that quickly fades into a thick lasting ring. Amazingly complex aroma with a huge chocolate malt presence which is only slightly roasty with hints of toffee and caramel. Sweet brandy alcohol heat that adds amazing complexity. Subtle oak and vanilla blending in with the vinous dark fruit notes. Chewy viscous body with lots of silky chocolate maltiness that is balanced out by the vinous apple brandy barrel notes. Slightly earthy oak that is very vinous with hints of dark fruit and vanilla balancing out the chilli and roasted malt perfectly. The spicy cinnamon chilli flavor is prominent in the dry finish. Excellent! I don’t see any way in which it could he improved with the exception of head retention.

beautiful syrupy black, with a dark brown head. great roasted aroma with a hint of sweet in the background. creamy texture with a definate barrel feel. sweet and hoppy. really thick, great beer!
