Growler shared at RBSG Grand Tasting, 2012. Black, oily, ass with long legs. Huge brandy, vanilla, chocolate caramel aroma. Really rich. Very sweet, lots of barrel, comes off as bourbon a bit at first, but, no, itís brandy. Chocolate. Great, rich, flavorful stout.

Growler shared at the RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Pitch black liquid with minimal tan head and viscous, lacing liquid. Aroma is compared to the regular Huna less driven by the added flavourings but reminds more of a "regular" imp stout. Lots of chocolate, oak, vanilla and sweet fruit. I miss the chili from the regular one. Same flavours dominate the taste with maybe just a tiny hint of the chili. Decent amount of sweetness and raw sugars. Very viscous, full body with low carbonation. Absolutely delicious, but I think I prefer the original.

Poured from tap into CCB snifter. Just like the regular version, pours used motor oil. Blacker than black. A good inch of head that has nice retention. Leaves nice lacing. This is my favorite hunahpu variation, with the rum right behind it. The latest batch is even better than previous batches.

Both 10 and 12 at STL gathering. Thanks boys! Iím going to rate this off the 2012. Pour = black. Aroma is really roasty and sweet with loads of fruit, cOconut and vanilla. Flavor also amazing with incredibly smooth and sweet fruit notes and light spice. So good. My number one of the night

Swing top growler to oversized snifter for #600! BIG THANKS TO MIKEM409 FOR SHARING THIS GEM!!! Looks flawless; pitch black and viscous with a nice boozy-tinted lacing. Smells fantastic! sweet and brandyish that opens up into some notes of pepper as it warms. Flawless on the palate as well. OH FUCK YES!!! DO I MAKE YOU BRANDY, BABY? DO I???

Im leaving room in case I find a better beer out there but this is perfection in a glass. Pours an insanely viscous black with brown creamy head. Aroma is rich, robust and amazing with notes of toasted coconut, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, and spice. Taste is more of the same with tons of flavor just lasting on your tongue. Thanks to Mark a bunch for the chance to try this one .

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 Ladies and gentlemen, this is the best beer Iíve ever had. Amazing aroma and the barrel aging blends perfectly

Growler shared by Joel, you rock brotha! This was 2 weeks old but still outstanding. Not a thing I would change about this beer. Amazing aroma and flavor, slightly low carbonated but thatís to be expected. Thought Iíd never get to try this one.

Growler into CCB snifter. Super dark black pour with a minuscule dark brown head that receded quickly. Aromas of dark fudge, spice, apple, booze and roasted malts. Flavor explodes with dark chocolate, cinnamon, chilli peppers, brandy, apples, coffee, burnt malt. Extremely full bodied, low carbonation. Exceptional beer. Big thanks to Paul Unwin for sending this rare treat to me.

This poured a pitch black color with a minimal dark tan head. Aroma was pretty impressive, lots of fudge, apples, caramel, and marshmellow. Flavor was much the same, just more intense, very interesting as I am noticing new and different tastes like 20 seconds after swallowing. A lot going on here but it all works well together.
