egajdzis (5266) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Opaque black color with a small, dark tan head that left sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma of tons of wood, charred wood, roast, apple, rum, chocolate, dark fruits, and some alcohol. Taste of roast, burnt wood, dark chocolate, molasses, apple brandy, and strong alcohol.

vyvvy (3880) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours black with a dark orange hue and no head. The aroma has lots of roast, cocoa, mild coffee and notes of brandy. It has a full thick body with light carbonation. The flavor begins with chocolate, roast, apples, mild oak and alcohol. The finish really shows heavy warmth from the alcohol. Good imperial stout.

Reynolds314 (2230) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Faaaaantastic pitch black viscous pour with brown creamy head. Aroma is cinnamon, espresso, cocoa, toasted coconut, and pumpernickle bread. Taste is sweet rich and loaded with woody barrel character. Rum comes through more then the Apple Brandy but that is present as well. Really great hunahpu variant second only to Apple Brandy.

jackl (4302) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2014
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.
