Pours black as hell with a typical reddish brown head. Flavors are incredible. Peppers, cinnamon, bourbon, brandy, vanilla, cocoa...just wicked shit. Fuck yeah.

Dark brown, nearly black pour with a tan head. Aroma is brandy, spice, chocolate and taste is brandy, chocolate, peppery goodness. So very awesome, one of the best beers Iíve ever had!

Timmy coming through in the clutch! Sludge black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is heaven, deep thick fudge, coconut, vanilla roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is similar all the way throughout. Transcendent, absolutely incredible.

At jacobís with group. Pour is black with faint lacing. Aroma is sweet complex bourbon/brandy, big delicious roasted malt, cream brule. Taste is phenomenal, complex malt, some cinnamon spice. It is hard to describe, it reminds me of rare, has a beautiful unique sweet booze note in there, so savory and so good.

750ml bottle, via trade. pour is marvelous. oil slick, syrupy, jet black that sits still in the glass capped by a thin ring of rusty head. aroma is sublime with huge dark chocolate, coffee, smoked peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and dark rum. flavor follows suit with subtle, toasted oak, bourbon, and mild pepper heat showing their presence along with dark fruits, cinnamon apples, and chocolate cake. palate is simply perfect with silky carbonation, coating mouthfeel, and lingering finish of cocoa, wood, and spices. overall, just another perfect iteration of Hunahpuís.

Bottle. Huge thanks to the local group for sharing this with me. Pours deep black, very dense. Very little head on the pour but still looks awesome. Aroma is ridiculously good. Can smell it from a couple feet away. Apple brandy, chocolate chip cookies, berries, vanilla, cinnamon, soy, and marshmallow. Tastes just as incredible as the aroma. Apple brandy, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, light smokey peppers, and a hint of dried dark fruit. Perfect mouthfeel as well. Very low carbonation makes this extremely smooth and allows the huge flavors to stand out. Iíve had a couple days to think about this beer and Iím convinced itís the best beer Iíve ever had. My first perfect 5. I would trade many bottles in my cellar to get another one of these.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 Sample at Funvitational. Aroma is rum barrel, cinnamon, chilies, vanilla, chocolate. Appearance is thick, black, brown head. Taste is cinnamon, sweet rum, nutmeg, chilies, cookies, sex, wow. Mouthfeel is perfect, a touch of heat and thick with little carbonation. Overall, move over Proprietorís 2014. Enter my perfect beer.

On tap at Bell's Funvitational. The pour is a viscous oily black with no head and no lace. The aroma is beautiful. There is a resounding cinnamon is amazing. The rum and brandy come through beautifully with no booze. The complexities are great. The flavor is unbelievable. Cinnamon, vanilla, rum and brandy sweetness and an excellent apple skins on the back. The mouth feel is thick and chewy with a soft carbonation and a deliciously lingering finish.
