4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle; Pour is murky , oily dark, with a fairly modest fine bubbled dark khaki head into this snifter - it retains fairly modest as well, I suppose, with light spotting presence. The nose is rich chocolate cake, powerful cinnamon, moving to graham cracker crust, and clear vanilla presence as well. There is feint vegetal quality here, with some earthen barrel notes as well. The nose is not the highlight here at all - but I knew what was to come - The flavor profile reveals a robust and fairly complex hunahpu variant - its sticky sweet, with chocolate cake and vanilla bean initial - caramel and cacao moving forward. The rum / apple brandy barrel treatment is a nice combo - although I wouldn’t have been able to pick out the apple brandy without knowing it ahead of time. Cinnamon is naturally powerful here, with mild heat - it ends mild bitter with that lingering heat and a somewhat dry finish line

Bottle ,i have been saving this for the right time and my friends came down with some Three Floyds so it was on,it pours with an inky black dark glass staining body that supports a dark colored head. The aroma is bursting with dark chocolate, mild cinnamon, mild chili pepper and then a mix of smooth bourbon brandy. The taste is dark chocolate flowing into chili peppers and heat and then some cinnamon. vanilla, smooth bourbon and then more dark chocolate.

CBC 2014. Black with a small, light brown head. Aroma of vanilla and oak, caramel and dried fruit. Very sweet flavour with licorice and chocolate, some oak and unpleasant green pepper notes. A touch of spicy heat in the finish

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted on 2/22/15 from a capped 750mL bottle, huge thanks to Drews for sharing. Pours completely, oily black with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to bubbly lace. The nose is very rich, with tons of Mexican hot chocolate, vanilla, really great molasses rum, a really nice dose of maple and brown sugar, and just a bit of tingling burn on my nostrils. The flavor is rich milk and dark chocolate up front, a bit less cinnamon than on the nose, but just enough, moving to more molasses rum, vanilla, brown sugar, and a nice hint of spicy chili pepper that has a nice burn from my throat to my belly. The body is very full and creamy with light, but just enough carbonation, and a very long oaky chocolate, cinnamon, and spicy finish. The spicy aspect of this beer is not my favorite thing, but the amazing depth of balance is undeniable.

Espectacular Imperial Stout! Aromes i sabors de cafè, xocolata, avellanes, vainilla amb una oxidació molt ben conduida que li aporta una complexitat extra molt benvinguda. Densa, avellutada i escalfadora, en boca presenta un gust i retrogust llarguissims. Birrot!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Dave a while back, huge thanks man. Pours out black with a small tan/reddish head. Aroma is of sweet cinnamon, rum spices, brown sugar, and some light notes of spice with a slight burning alcohol aroma. Taste is complex, a silky smooth body with lots of cinnamon, syrup, mild spice, a decent amount of caramelized brown sugar, chocolate, and some mild roast. I got a lot more of the rum barrels than the apple brandy. Fantastic beer, but to me just a little short of regular Huna

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An imperial stout which easily lives up to the stringent qualities ascribed to it. Deep, complex, a very broad, full mouthfeel. Bitterness. Roasted grains. Irrespective of its splendid darker-than-hell colour one ought be cognisant of the vibrant red fruits and the lingering coffee tones. Again
