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 Iíve hadÖhands 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 símores, 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/símores. Wow, loving this! I was supremely ready to be disappointed but this shit was awesome!!

markextrae (1492) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
shared bottle by a friend. poured a pitch black motor oil colour leaving a small mocha coloured ring on top. strong aroma of cinnamon, dark bitter chocolate, green apple, spiced an earthy ash rum, roasted malts, vanilla, cacao, slight heat of the pepper as it starting to warm up, dark fruits of the brandy, the taste just blews you away, the apple fruityness combined with the dark ashy rum notes just worked perfect in this beer, cinnamon, dark chocolate, marshmallow, apple pie, vanilla, oak, very thick mouthfeel, one hell of a beer, hits my top 5 best stouts to date. incredible

dramage (2) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 750 ml bottle thanks to BoBoChamp! Pours jet black, slick, viscous. Barely any head. Low carbonation. Aroma is huge, bursting with chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, vanilla, dark rum, apple brandy, a bit burned, hint of peppers. Not too boozy. Flavour is tremendous. Sweet chocolate start with a cavalcade of flavours following. Notes of cinnamon, vanilla, smoked peppers, toasted oak, coconut, dark fruits, berries. Spices come through nicely but are not overpowering. Thick but silky mouthfeel. Probably too extreme for some, but right up my alley!

mcberko (8113) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
750mL bottle, pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma is very complex, with brandy and rum barrels, with vanilla beans, raisins, cinnamon and very mild chili peppers. Flavour is much more complex, with apple brandy liqueur, and cohesive notes of cinnamon, cocoa, raisins and vanilla. Much better than the original. The barrel aging adds many other wonderful dimensions to this. Thick, syrupy palate. Wonderful stuff, though really only drinkable in small amounts.

rood (52) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2015
Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. What a failure. Cinnamon≤, cardemom≤, chili≤. Overspiced≤, hence flavour profile is completely out of balance. The average mean of this beer is ridicilously high. Wondering if all ratings of this beer are done by aliens. Or America = Aliens? The truth is out there. Go get them Mulder. X Thanks berntholer for this extraterrestrial.

Iím not sure what to say here. This is the second-best liquid Iíve tasted to date (the best being a 40 yo scotch). The liquor is well balanced and smooth. The spice comes through perfectly. The color is black, but only because I have no words to describe the next shade darker than black. Savor every drop that you can if you are lucky enough to come by this.

ues the trend of CCB doing amazing work with Apple Brandy barrels. Nose is rich on cinnamon apples, cocoa, vanilla. Taste is a touch hot (booze, not pepper) and sweet with the flavors still coming through really nicely. There isn’t as detectable a pepper note as in AB Hunah. Incredible body and viscous without feeling sickening. Just fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DesertDevil (609) - Arizona, USA - DEC 16, 2014
2014 bottle. The aroma features thick fudge, moderate hot rum, toasted oak, cinnamon, mild spirits, and a touch of sharp anise. Pours dark brown with heavy red highlights; no head or no lacing. Damn Ė so many smooth flavors hit right away. Medium-roast coffee, sticky rum, chocolate fudge, light black licorice, sublime oak, sweet brandy, pleasant cinnamon, and allspice all delight the taste buds. Even with the cornucopia of flavors, itís the opposite of muddled; each flavor takes its turn. Lighter body than regular Huna. Thereís a reason this is so elite.
