750ml bottle that poured a thick oily black sludge that left a nice coat of brown on the glass. Aromas of fudge, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, wood, and mellowed bourbon. Flavors are the same but the bourbon steals the show in my book. It is a nice mixture of flavors that left me wanting more. As the beer warmed, more of the bourbon comes out in the flavor, and some spice from the chili’s comes out as well. Great beer overall, I hope they bottle this one again.

From notes. Pours a big rich thick black with a super dark brown head. Nose is big and sweet hitting hitting me with cocoa up front then a little bourbon and wood. First sip I’m hit with the big cocoa and a warm bourbon center, there is some nice oaky notes, I get some vanilla in there and some nice heat at the end from the chilles. As the beer warms up lots more bourbon is coming out. The mouthfeel is big, thick, rich, with medium mouthfeel and a big full body. This beer is great, tons of flavor blended together in a beautiful way.

18/II/2012 1Pt. 9.4Fl. Oz. bottle from De Hopduvel @ De Hopduvel - BB: n/a (2012-137) Thanks to BoBoChamp for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown soy sauce like fluid, no head, 2 or 3 bubbles, thick and oily. Aroma: vanilla, caramel, whiskey, alcohol, mocha to coffee, very powerful and overwhelming. MF: no carbon, full body, thick almost cloying texture. Taste: sweet caramel, vanilla, some tobacco, dark chocolate, mocha, little spicy. Aftertaste: mocha, coffee, sweet caramel, alcohol burning in the back of the throat. Pretty impressive stuff.

75cl, Bottled on 08/2011 (green wax), no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with cinnamon and chili peppers, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex Stout, roasted/sweet and slightly spicy/sour/fruity, not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, small head, top class!, yet very expensive!

Served along side the other variants, this was my favorite of the night by a long shot. Served in a Cigar City snifter because I can. Beer is black with a one finger tight brown head of tiny bubbles, frothy, lots of lacing, low carbonation, looks good. Aroma is very bourbon forward, roast, mild ash, some woodiness come through, mild chili in the background. Beer is medium to full in body that cuts out in the second half of the palate. The bourbon is all over this beer. The base finds places to pop up and say "HEY YOU ARE DRINKING A HUNAHPUS HERE", mild cinamon and mild chili, overall an excellent beer. My favorite. Serving type: bottle

750 ml bottle shared by the local ba group. Pours pitch black with a thick sticky reddish brown head. The nose is peppery, moderate cocoa, bourbon, vanilla, and spices. Everything works very well together with this. The flavor is thick malty goodness with moderate sweetness and some roast. The chocolate is a blend of creamy and dark versions. The bourbon adds a complexity not found in the original. Vanilla, pepper and spices round things out. Medium-full bodied and quite smooth. The barrel notes are well integrated with the base beer. As a side not, we had the 4 roses bourbon along side the beer to check aromas and flavor.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Hunahpu release 2010. Noire huile de moteur, mousse épaisse moka/acajou deux doigts. Arôme donne bien l’aspect des piments se mélangeant avec la vanille et les morceaux de cacao laissant une impression légère de malt fumé. Palais est épais, chocolaté avec les piments qui donnent juste assez d’épice sans pour cela prendre le dessus sur l’expérience. Cette bière arrive à une nouvelle dimension avec le bourbon qui est frais boozy et réchauffant. Le tout reste un peu lourd sur le chocolat, note de café, soyeuse en bouche

bottle... oily black, very thin light tan ring... the aroma is a touch hot, bourbon, wood, char, sweet vanilla note opens as it warms... pretty flat and boring taste, almost devoid of malt, char and oak, weak watery bourbon finish

Sampled at the DC Ratebeer Gathering. 750ml bottle pours an oily, opaque black with some red, fading head. Big spicy, chili aroma, raisins, ancho chili, cherries, dark mexican chocolate, black pepper, vanilla, coconut. Flavor of brown sugar, molasses, raisins, chili peppers, tons of chocolate, dried cherries, malts, light coffee, cracked peppercorns. Full bodied finish although extremely smooth. I was very skeptical of this but it lived up to the hype.
