black motor oil out of the bottle, glop glop glop. Head is standard brick red/brown, large bubbles fading to a ring. Nose is heavy sugar, marshmallow, heavy cocoa. Flavor is soft, cocoa, light pepper, moderately chalky in the sweet, brownie finish. This trend is past poor now, just boring really.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 Bottle. Thanks to Matlzilla for sharing this one. Boozy/bourbon nose. Joan Jett black pour with a chocolate head. Thick, chewy, robust, lots of mellow bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, and heat from the peppers. Fan-freakin-tastic.......

Thanks GT! Uber black pour with a dark brown head- darker than most beer in fact. Lots of spicy pepper notes, vanilla bourbon, peppery chocolate, cayenne, and cocoa nib. Super smooth and supple palate with silky carbonation, epic viscosity, and capsaicin spiciness.

Bottle shared by GT2. Pours opaque with a medium, fizzy dark brown head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and coffee malt, light spicy peppers, prunes, raisins, and dates, light bourbon and oak. Flavor is moderate roast malt, spicy peppers, bourbon, vanilla, and oak, caramel and cookie malt, coffee notes, light alcohol, and a dry finish. Full body, high warmth, medium carbonation.

From the 2011 release.. Extremely chocolatey, robust and bourbony..nice subtle dissipating tartness with a tinge of vanilla. Rich, dark fruitiness reminiscent of date and plum resonate. The Chile peppers are all but gone from the profile but there is an ever so slight hint of their remnants. Very tasty stuff, overall very pleased to have tried this one fresh.

Old note from the first Hunahpu release. Mainly just have scores for all of the stout variations I tried (it was a long day of drinking). I thought this one gets overshadowed by the bourbon quite a bit - which isnít my thing to begin with. Prefer the regular Hunahpu to this by some margin.

Lucky enough to try this and the reg version at Capones with head brewer. What a beer. Soft as silk mouth feel. Aroma is chocolate, wood, bourbon. Nose is rich vanilla bourbon. Thanks for sharing Wayne. Another beastly brew from CC

Had on tap at Hunahpus Release in Tampa. Hopefully they will have it again this year. Poured into a CC snifter. Motor oil dark with a creamy sticky head. The nose is all bourbon with a bit of vanilla. Deep rich base beer flavors of cocoa and dark malts, with plenty of hot bourbon character. The chili pepper doesnít kick in here like the regular, as I think it was somewhat overwhelmed by the barrel treatment. Chewy mouthfeel that really warms up as you go. Sticky sweet with a lingering bitter chocolate aftertaste on the finish. Needs a bit more time in the barrel IMHO, but still nice.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 On tap at the CCB Hunahpuís release. A: Poured a dark, deep black with a deep tan head and some decent lacing for a beer of this magnitude. S: Bourbon comes through in the initial nose, and serves wonderfully to complement the spicier notes in the original from the cinnamon and chili peppers. Beautiful all around. T: Very, very enjoyable. Not a perfect 5.0, as while the bourbon does go quite well with all of the flavors in the original version, I though it masked some of the finer touches in the original version. Maybe it was just the bourbon, or maybe the additional heat from the barrel-aging, but I didnít find it quite as outstanding as the original. M: Very full bodied and creamy with only a little bit of heat, which went well with what this was going after. D: Again, superb. Slightly different from the brandy and the regular, but they all packed something a bit different, and each one was in the top echelon of stouts that Iíve had. Marvelous job by Joey, Wayne, and the rest of the CCB crew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 03-14-2010
