UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 Rating #1000 ! Eat it folks! Tap @ CBC. Pours BLACK with a stunning espresso brown head. Well yes! Aroma has the regular insane hunahpu notes which is buffed up with a very very sick barrel quality of coconut, liquor filled chocolat, deep dark cherries, butterscotch and just huge vanilla. Wow wow wow wow in my face. Taste has the same Insane notes and holds a bit more spicy notes, roasted coffee and just overall a BOMB!! This is slick - yes! But the balance is just there and the "sweeter" alcoholic barrels just does this beer good. What an experience. I need me some more of this stuff! And When I said I needed some more of this stuff i really meant it. So I got it. This time in much bigger amounts and dang did this disappoint my high expectations from last time I tasted it? NO, NOT AT ALL!!! This is very close to a perfect imperial stout for me. It has a smooth imperial stout base and then it just have that touch of unique spices and the complex barrel character which just does it for me. I have a hard time imagining a beer which would perform better than this for me. So I will show my true self and knock this up to a 4,9 - yes I did it!! It’s frightening to give such a grade (haha) - but I feel pretty confident and loyal to my tastebuds by going this high. When my beer journey ends and I haven’t found a beer that performs better than this - I will go back and rate this a clear 5 haha :D

On tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts extremly malty, notes of pepper and liquorice, modest earthy. Quite alcoholic. Intense malty and warming finish. A good one!

Rating #1000. YESSSS! This is it. The classic insane espresso-like Hunahpu-look. Instant 5. Amazing fat buttery, chocolaty vanilla aroma with cocoa, brandy, sweet sugary notes and fcuk (actual notes said fcuk). Taste is insane. Dense as fuck, out of this world. All the same complexity as the aroma, even with a bit of saltiness in the taste. The Chili tickles like a feather of "oh, fuck", right on the edge of the tongue in the after taste. Wonderful. Oh, lawd, I wanna drink this all the time. Chewy as fuck. Just like Star Wars.

Cinnamon flavor, caramel, raisins, prunes, toffee notes, cocoa powder, rum notes, apple pie, brandy, licorice, woody notes, some hazelnuts.

gyllenbock (5228) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
Sample at CBC 2014. Really black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate, dred fruit, wood, some vanilla, apple and some earth, The taste was also really great, smooth and very elegant. Nice full body and with a long aftertaste. I don’t think that an Imperial Stout can be much better than this one.

Light spice, slight fruity brandy, and some caramel. Tastes like smores and cinnamon toast crunch. Crazy marshmallow, chocolate, and cinnamon. Dark chocolate, vanilla, and a subtle chile spiciness. Really solid.

> A total overhaul of Hunahpu creates Perennial BA Abraxas

[ Bottle ][ vacax ][ 750ml ][ 10K+OT Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/3/14 ]
>> Thanks Jake for this one! Pours ink like other Hunahpu’s with layer of weak, read foam. Stains the glass. Nose on this one is instantly the best of any Hunahpu variant: guajillo pepper, cinnamon, ancho chili, vanilla, graham cracker, rum raisin, dry rubbed skirt steak. Taste is also instantly the best of any Hunahpu by a long shot, in fact, this beer is so much better than previous Hunahpu’s that it is clear this is a complete recipe overhaul to transform this beer from an ashy, sour, thin mess to something 99% identical to Perennial Abraxas. Gone is that extreme sourness from over mashed black patent malt. Now there is rich, melted sea salted dark chocolate, assertive chili pepper deep heat from ancho chilis. Previous Hunahpu’s had near a smidgen of chili heat. Palate is rich and viscous instead of ashy and watery. This is a major overhaul and easily the best Hunahpu out there. Now the question is, why is this rated so much higher than BA Abraxas? I’ll give you one guess.

>!< what if CCB and another brewery made an identical beer? Would they be rated the same?
