Draft at Huna Day. Never rated it for some reason...Poured into my small snifter. Deep black liquid with small mocha head. Powerful aroma with deep chocolates, cinnamon, cayenne, oak barrel, prunes, and anise. The taste is an amazing balance between the dark fruits, chocolate, cinnamon and cayenne. BIG mouth feel and think full body. Chewy finish. Really delicious.

High expectations for this one ! @ Mega imperial stout tasting part 2.
Pours black, with a big and dark head. Smell is intense on cinnamon side. Taste is spicy cinnamon, sweet, raisin, black malts. Bit bitter. Not very impressed to be honoust. Expected this to be balanced and great, but the balance is hanging in a far distance from this beer.

Wow. Epic bottle share. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. Aroma is boozy, roasted malts, touch of bourbon. Flavor is taken over by that Apple brandy barrel. So thick and chewy. Amazing!

Thick. Most notable flavor is cinnamon, bit of chili pepper skin, and maybe a hint of twang from the AB barrels. I wonder if I’m not getting one particular flavor because everything is so well balanced or not. The Rum and AB barrels just work awesomely with this base. Some warming alcohol presence in chest. Just outstanding

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Originally reviewed 2/17/2014. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Inky black. Stains the glass. Mocha head. Thick collar, Brandy fruitiness. Graham cracker and cinnamon. Some coconut. Chocolate. Vanilla. Some rum, but it’s not that prevalent. More rum in the tastes. Brandy sweetness. Chocolate, graham cracker. The coconut comes through also. Much more peppery. Lingers in the finish. Very heavy. Pretty sweet, too. Medium low carbonation and very boozy. This is outstanding. The sweetness and booze are the only aspects I don’t love.

A deep dark imperial stout with a thin dark brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with loads of molasses, rum, bourbon, soy sauce, hot pepper, much more intense than regular Hunahpu. In mouth, super silky oily dark chocolate malt with chili, licorice, molasses, alcohol warmth, vanilla, beautiful, more complex than the simple Hunahpu. Bottle from Adam C. at 3F, via GRM. Puhskinwow’s Big Deck tasting.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at RBAG with the AB crew. Appearance is black motor oil fudge with creamy mocha head. Aroma is vanilla, light spice, cinnamon, chocolate, oak, and plenty of barrel character. Taste is fudge, light spice, vanilla, hint of cinnamon, rum, with a sweet ashy finish. Overall, this is a really nice variation on the base beer, we had this back to back with original, and I did like this version a bit more.
