Growler shared at CCB Black Friday. Poured a black color with a minimal fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing and great legs. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate, vanilla, woody and apple alcohol aroma. Heavy sweet toasted sweet malt flavor with a heavy sweet and small brandy alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Apple Brandy Barrel - enjoyed Summer and Fall 2012

Appearance: Pours dark brown with a thin brown ring. An iodine like coating is left behind on the glass.

Aroma: Sweet brandy. Chocolate, coconut, pepper skin.

Taste: Strong apple brandy, cinnamon spice, dark chocolate, barrel char.

Mouthfeel: Thick, spicy carbonation.

Overall: A fantastic treat, even on a warm summer day in this case. I had it in Denver and it was amazing then too. As the old XX Meme goes: “I don’t usually need barrel treated Hunahpu, but when I do, it’s Apple Brandy Barrel Aged Hunahpu.”

Pours a pitch black beer with a dark chocolate head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, roasted and fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness, coffee and brandy. The palate is sticky with sweetness. Overall a really good beer.

Growler shared with Per, HUGE thanks to Greg. Pours oily pitch black with a small brown diminishing head. Aroma is fantastic; slightly vinous dark fruits raisins vanilla cocoa coffee chocolate roasted malty sweet. Flavor mmmmm.... Damn so good. Acidy fruity roasted sweet in front, explosion of cocoa chocolate coffee licorice vanilla and a bit booze with some pungent bitterness, all flavors just stay and stay all the way to the end with longlived bitter chocolate licorice and warming boozy aftertaste.

Jet black and then some. Tiny light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice and spirits. Sweetish chocolate, roast, dessert wine, licorice flavour with a faint hint of ash and some dried fruit. Deliciously complex and free of that annoying green pepper flavour often seen in Hunapu...

Nice size sample from growler thanks to Corbet! Pours solid black & viscous with a thin mocha head. It smells of boozy whiskey, brandy, and vanilla as the oak gives off a powerful bouquet. Taste is chocolate, fudge, sweet brandy, oak with some roast and sweet coffee. A bit of pepper is noticeable on the finish and adds that nice base Hunahpu element. Very full bodied imperial stout with low carbonation and a thick, mildly sweet malt feel. One of the best stouts I’ve had and the only Hunahpu variant I like more than the base!

Tiny pour from a growler shared by Alex. Motor oil colored. Aroma of brandy, bourbon, malt. Thick body, flat, tastes of malt, bourbon, slightly tart. Very nice beer, reminded me of Sam Adams triple bock without the soy sauce flavor.
