Christian (11389) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2015
CBC 2014. Black with a small, light brown head. Aroma of vanilla and oak, caramel and dried fruit. Very sweet flavour with licorice and chocolate, some oak and unpleasant green pepper notes. A touch of spicy heat in the finish

Tasted on 2/22/15 from a capped 750mL bottle, huge thanks to Drews for sharing. Pours completely, oily black with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to bubbly lace. The nose is very rich, with tons of Mexican hot chocolate, vanilla, really great molasses rum, a really nice dose of maple and brown sugar, and just a bit of tingling burn on my nostrils. The flavor is rich milk and dark chocolate up front, a bit less cinnamon than on the nose, but just enough, moving to more molasses rum, vanilla, brown sugar, and a nice hint of spicy chili pepper that has a nice burn from my throat to my belly. The body is very full and creamy with light, but just enough carbonation, and a very long oaky chocolate, cinnamon, and spicy finish. The spicy aspect of this beer is not my favorite thing, but the amazing depth of balance is undeniable.

Shared bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, cinnamon, chocolate, and spice. Taste is roasted malt, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, pepper, and barrel. Incredible.

Zoret (126) - Badalona, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2015
Espectacular Imperial Stout! Aromes i sabors de cafè, xocolata, avellanes, vainilla amb una oxidació molt ben conduida que li aporta una complexitat extra molt benvinguda. Densa, avellutada i escalfadora, en boca presenta un gust i retrogust llarguissims. Birrot!

berntholer (1158) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
dense coffee coloured head leaves some lacing. coffee coloured. aroma is cinnamon, massive cinnamon, boozy, soy sauce, salty. taste like aroma, peppery heat that builds up, cinnamonroll, candysugar, syrupy. dense mouthfeel and medium carbonation. not worth the hype and the regular Hunah is better imho.bottle 75cl

pineypower (2610) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle shared by Dave a while back, huge thanks man. Pours out black with a small tan/reddish head. Aroma is of sweet cinnamon, rum spices, brown sugar, and some light notes of spice with a slight burning alcohol aroma. Taste is complex, a silky smooth body with lots of cinnamon, syrup, mild spice, a decent amount of caramelized brown sugar, chocolate, and some mild roast. I got a lot more of the rum barrels than the apple brandy. Fantastic beer, but to me just a little short of regular Huna

IluvatarMilan (279) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
An imperial stout which easily lives up to the stringent qualities ascribed to it. Deep, complex, a very broad, full mouthfeel. Bitterness. Roasted grains. Irrespective of its splendid darker-than-hell colour one ought be cognisant of the vibrant red fruits and the lingering coffee tones. Again : examplary.

Incredible share from drowland highlighting a wonderful tasting. Thanks, dude! Incredible thick black pour that absolutely coats the entire glass with its khaki head. The aroma is incredible complex. The base gives a nice rich chocolately cinnamon vanilla goodness. But there is also a nice apple brandy sweetness. The taste is all sorts of sweet rich goodness. In the middle, cinnamon, chocolate, slight heat (but pepper is way subdued in DB). The barreling was both present mostly the AB, but also a bit of rum-oakiness. Huge body (of course). One of the best beers I’ve had…hands down. Amazing.

1/7/15. Rating #6200! 750mL bottle. Big thanks to markwise for being my trustee and sending this up my way! I was very glad to finally try this bad boy with some good company! Rich black pour, oily, decent head, mild lacing, but this stuff is so thick and oily it just coats the glass. Awesome. Wow, fabulous aroma, both barrels shine, the brandy moreso, vanilla and cinnamon abound, especially the vanilla, which mingles in a way with the roasted malts and spice, barrels, etc. to remind me very specifically of roasted marshmallows and s’mores, whoa. Even better flavor, amazing. This was practically made for me. Vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malts, peppers, wood, the barrels, all combining again to hit me as roasted marshmallows/s’mores. Wow, loving this! I was supremely ready to be disappointed but this shit was awesome!!
