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

ctipping (939) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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.

Lubiere (12241) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
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.

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.

DuffMan (8793) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015 by kbudd. Inky oily near black pour (looks like the regular Hunah). Silkier palate, more sweet treacle, maybe some coconut, more spice, vanilla, less chili. Equally awesome. I think you could do almost anything to the base beer and it would just remain awesome!

Martinus (4349) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2015
Pitch black colour, tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, cinnamon, apple brandy, caramel, coffee, mocha, vanilla, dark roasted malts. Sweet flavour, coffee, spicy cinnamon, brown sugar, alcohol, lots of cacao, wood. Quite soft carbonation, but enough to tickly your tongue. Finish cacao, malts, coffee and apple and soft banana from the barrels. Nice!!
(from 75cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival, Leuven 2015. Huge thanks for sharing, Don! Yes, we agreed that you would take something nice to share in return for my efforts getting you a rare lambic, but this was overdoing it, in style. Thank you, sir!)
