What just happened? Thanks Brad for this share, completing my Huhaphus journey. Beer served in a cervoise. Beer is black with a nice tan head, small bubbles, lacing, low carbonation, decent retention. Aroma is hunahpuís base, chocolate, sweet, mild spice, with this incredibly layered liquor, this smells perfect. Iím cautioning myself from giving this a perfect 5 but it is damn close. Nice body, medium, creamy, coats the mouth almost completely, mildly roasty, sweet liquor up front, mild fruitiness, chocolate and fudge on the palate. An awesome beer.

Shared by who else but ygtbsm94. Wow man, thanks for sharing another one of my most highly coveted beers. Bottle 61 / 84 The beer is black. The appearance is oily and viscous. Atop the beer rests an inch of dense, beige head that hangs out for the duration. Cigar City sure makes some good looking stouts. The aroma offers less cinnamon and spice than the standard Hunahpuís. Beautiful dark roast and chocolate aromas, along with oak, vanilla, and a light boozy sweetness. The flavor is fantastic. The brandy character gains momentum as the beer is allowed to warm. Well balanced, teeming with flavor, complex, unique. Yeah man. Another amazing stout from Cigar City. What a treat.

On draft at Cigar City, poured a thick dark black color with aromas of chocolate, vanilla, light chillies, and brandy. Flavors are fudge, chocolate, apple brandy throughout, light cinnamon, and some vanilla. Really great beer, glad I got to have this beer multiple times this week, I really hope they do this beer again, the best variant of Hunahpu in my book so far.

Big thanks to Nate at World of Beer for sharing! Heaven in a glass! Nectar of the gods. Pours a thick, viscous black with a red thin head. Aroma is rich booze, sweetness of caramel and toffee, roasted malts and mild spice. Flavor is boozy, chocolate, rich malts, caramel, spice, vanilla, heaven. Palate is huge thick, rich and healthy. Overall, one of my top five to date, easily!

Picked up today at CCB in growler. Poured pitch black with small brown head. Tasted chocolate some chilies cinnamon and a bit of the apple. Full bodied very little carbonation. Very happy and surprised that I was able to get this today as expected I really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a fantastic brew. Tap. Pour is jet black with the thinnest chocolate colored lacing. Aromas are thick. Tons of brandy, some apple, raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, more chocolate, molasses, some brown sugar, and piloncillo. This is one rich mother. There is a nice booziness in this one still. Plenty of cinnamon and vanilla, with brandy tones all throughout. Also, figs and berries play around nicely with the dark chocolate. Some rich brown sugar, vanilla, and molasses round this one out. Incredible.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Damn... This beer was better than I expected - and I had high expectations! So out pours this motor-oil thick black body with somewhat of a thin black head. Aromas were complex and boozy - LOTS of wet oak, cinnamon, chocolate, coffee and molasses. The body was thick as well, and with the PERFECT touch of bitterness among; cocoa, stale coffee, vanilla, dirt, caramel, spices, cinnamon, candy apples, wood and alcohol... and may just be the best damn barrel-aged beer Iíve encountered. On a second note, after all the beers Iíve tried - I donít think Iíll ever get the chance to try a beer that tops this one. This beer is the perfect combination of stout and barrel. Art in a glass... Cheers!!!

Bottle 56/84, huge whale thanks to ygtbsm94. Gorgeous ultra-dark brown head. Nose holds that base spiciness but mellowed from the barrel, along with sweet liqueur, cacao nib, and the slightest bit of apple and vinous notes. Flavor is much like the regular Hunahpu, with nice spice and bakerís chocolate. Damn good, but not all that much different.
