Growler courtesy of Degarth. Pours a glass staining black with a small but lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, coconut, bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, tobacco, vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon. Taste is the same as aroma. Full oily mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and a nice amount of warming from the alcohol. Another amazing beer from Cigar City.

Fantastic as always with Hunahpu. The barrel has faded a ton but the chiles are still potent and adding great spice. Rich flavors of light bourbon, brownie batter, coconut, and toffee. So thick it feels like im eating it. Great beer and thanks to Collin for sharing!

750ml bottle. Poured a black color with a small sized tan head. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, roast, and roasty. Didn’t really get any peppers or spices (which really isn’t a bad thing as this beer still was great).

I had one beer left from my Christmas variety pack of Dark beers and this was it. I wish I had opened this one earlier, rather than the Yeti....
Anyway, it poured out like used motor oil-dark, syruppy and aromatic. Choclotty, and hints of vanilla...but overpowerring chocolate... Amazing stuff. I wish the taste lived up to the promise of the aroma...but it doesn’t. The aroma promises 150% and you get 80%.. Not really complaining, the aroma says your gonna spin hops into platinum, and you only get gold. I can live with it. I will be looking for it next time I go for a dark beer.

RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting.
Black with a thin tan head.
Complex aroma. Chocolate, vanilla, leather, dark fruits.
The flavor is all of the aroma with a great bourbon touch; not too much, not too little. Very well done.

Bottle "shared" at RBWG. Danish Pour. Black with a small tan head. Nose is sweet, chocolate, bourbon is a little toned down from what I Imagine it once was, vanilla, not much pepper/spice. Flavor is similar. I kinda feel like the heat from Hunahpu is what really makes it unique and its all but lost when its put in these potent liquor barrels. I liked this more than the whiskey barrel, but I still haven’t found one I like more than the original.
