4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, lots of thanks to BoBoChamp for giving me the opportunity to try this one!
APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, no head. Very sticky beer.
TASTE: whiskey, some spices, quite sweet, chocolate, mocha.
TASTE: whiskey again, some chili there as well, coffee bitterness, sweetness as the regular Hunahpu. For me, this was a beer in perfect balance! Nice alcohol warming feeling.

75cl, Bottled on 8/2011 (blue wax), no mention of ABV, as Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout (aged in Whiskey Barrels), exclusive American brew, with cinnamon and chili peppers, thx alot to Secret Santa!, very complex Stout, roasted/alcoholic/woody and slightly fruity/spicy/sweet, yet not too heavy, very balanced, cloudy, small head, World class!, yet very expensive!, ’This sample aged very well... This IS craft beer! If I just got to try the Apple Brandy Edition...’

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
750ml bottle, blue waxed, from the 2011 release. finally found a good reason to crack this one open...board certification! pours massively dense, smooth, and silky as only Hunahpu’s does, with a rich, rusty red head that leaves thick, oily sheets of lace. aroma is classic Hunahpu’s, heavy dark chocolate, cinnamon, cold coffee, vanilla, peppers, and dense roast with a beautiful twist of toasted oak, dark fruits, coconut, and smoky whiskey notes that emerge as it warms. flavor is truly masterful with smooth, rich dark chocolate, Mexican coffee, cinnamon rolls, nutmeg, and roasted malts backed by smooth vanilla, wickedly subtle pepper heat, and ash with perfectly integrated touches of toasted coconut, oak, and dry whiskey with a touch of peat. palate is pure Hunahpu’s with over-the-top density, smooth carbonation, and a lingering finish of spices, whiskey, and subtle heat. overall, i put this just a hint behind the two brandy variations but it’s still one of the best brews I’ve ever tasted and gets a 5 from me.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Black pour, thin beige head that dissipates. Nose is big cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon, not much whiskey but everything is so perfectly melded together that it’s clear it was barrel aged. Taste is cocoa, vanilla cinnamon, some barrel. Thick creamy body. Right up there with AB Huna.
