Bottle via trade. Shared @ Bruce’s. Deep brown, thick tan head. Looks luscious and rich. Nose of roasted toffee apple and banana nut muffins. Toasted shredded coconut. Dark roasted coffee and burnt smores. Wonderfully inviting. The taste is punctuated by nice accents of pepper and cinnamon. Oily dark roasted coffee. Baked red apples covered in caramel. Dark chocolate and marzipan. Big and fat without being heavy-handed. Smooth, supple body. Very oily. Overall, and excellent effort.

Beautifully dirty pour: stubborn head, obnoxious lace, stains my glass like Huna or Zhukov. Dirty as fuck.

Cinnamon-chocolate-chile-vanilla bomb. Depth of flavor is on the OMGWTFBBQ level, yet a full step behind stuff like KBBS. Absolutely delicious; mouthfeel rocks my world like every Zhukov variant. Freaking awesome.

(750ml bottle) motor oil black, viscous as hell, exceptionally dark head. Nose of rum, brandy, cinnamon, cayenne, so soft, balanced, chocolaty, amazing. Taste is ridiculously balanced, chocolaty, cinnamon, brandy, rum, Coconut, vanilla, so many different things. Amazing beer, delicious linger that’s perfect. Damn.

Ungstrup (34321) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, soy sauce, bourbon, dark chocolate, and citrus fruits, leading to a dry roasted and alcoholic finish.

Shared at De Garde anniversary party A- pours a syrupy brown/black with a thin but creamy ruddy, dark tan head. Good lacing. S- just decadent and creamy. Rum and brandy are both present but neither overrule the other subtle nuances if the aroma. Chocolate, espresso, vanilla, warm berry pie, browned butter, cake batter, cinnamon and mild dark fruits. The peppery spice is not very present and very welcome. M- full creamy body and palate with good sweetness and burn. Mild carbonation. T- again, the creaminess starts this flavorful journey. Rich chocolate, rum and brandy, plus some pleasant oak funk up front. Mid palate is vanilla, cinnamon, raisin bread, pie crust. Slight pepper presence starts to show. Ending has residual pepper, cocoa, some minerals, and cacao bite. Just a wonderful beer all around.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
750ml bottle, via trade. pour is marvelous. oil slick, syrupy, jet black that sits still in the glass capped by a thin ring of rusty head. aroma is sublime with huge dark chocolate, coffee, smoked peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and dark rum. flavor follows suit with subtle, toasted oak, bourbon, and mild pepper heat showing their presence along with dark fruits, cinnamon apples, and chocolate cake. palate is simply perfect with silky carbonation, coating mouthfeel, and lingering finish of cocoa, wood, and spices. overall, just another perfect iteration of Hunahpu’s.

Klimaet (1861) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Tap @ CBC. Pours a pitch black with a minimal creamy dark brown head. Most definitely the most beautiful beer Ive ever seen. Aromas of butter, toffee, chocolate, sweet dark berries, vanilla and brandy. Taste - oh, the taste. That thing about it being the most beautiful beer Ive seen - its also the best beer Ive ever tasted. Extremely dense, slightly spicy, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, apple pie, vanilla, sweet fruits. So oily and dense, I dont even. Sadly didnt get more than around 6ml of this amazingly well made beer. 9-5-10-5-19. Bottle. Pours pitch black with a thick creamy mocca head. God damn this beer is beautiful. Aromas of rum, cacao, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, chili sweetness, dark dried fruits, coconut. Taste is roasted coffee, vanilla, slight coconut, slight cinnamon, dark chocolate, rum, spices, chilies, slight licorice, wood. Full body, medium Carbonation, slight chili afterburn. Perfect beer is perfect. Well, 4,9-perfect.

Strykzone (6719) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Sampled at 4 Hands tasting. Blavk and angry looking. A reddish head. Wood and whiskey nose with dark fruit . I don’t smell spices. A very nice aroma. Vinous flavore. Quite tasty. Spices are tasted and are peppery. Chocolate and complex fruit. I am not a fan of the regular Huna but this is exceptional. Awesome stuff.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours black (like Hunahpu black), minimal head, nice lacing Smell sweet apple brandy, cinnamon, red fruit, roast, not getting as much of the spices on this one. Taste sweet, roasty, red fruit middle, heat from alcohol, lots of cinnamon and chilipepper in the finish. Mid to full body I like this beer a lot, but I prefer California Brandy to it.
