Bottle sbared at the Brandon Brass Tap, poured a dark black color with aromas of fudge, light pepper, whisky and some roast. Flavors were the same, mellow pepper and light whisky made this beer amazing. Glad I saved the bottle and shared with some friends. Please make this beer again.

Thanks to the kind soul who shared this one. Pours the color of obsidian night with some dark tan head. Nose is legendary: roast, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, hint of booze with bits of spice and pepper. Flavor is equally wonderous: roast, slight ash, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, pepper, slight mallow, and spices. The balance is outstanding, the base beer is great, and the overall experience is symphonic. Amazing beer with medium to full body and lingering sweet Hunahpu finish.

Tasted side-by-side with regular, Bourbon, Rum, and Virgin Oak. Thanks to everyone for making this happen. Served in a Cigar City snifter. Pours a deep brown color with a thin light mocha head. Small cap and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some faint whiskey along with backing chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and chiles. The base beer is much more prominent here than in the Rum and Bourbon versions. The flavor has a good whiskey backing plus chocolate, roast, and some nice spicing. Medium body with good carbonation. Quite tasty, but not quite at the level of the other barrel-aged blends. Boom.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with average, fizzy dark tan head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is whiskey, woody notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate, light smoke, and espresso. Flavor is heavy malt and some supporting dark fruit esters; whiskey and espresso undertones throughout; dry, ashy finish. Full body, medium carbonation, and high warmth.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 750 ml bottle shared @ tkrjukoffs CCB Day tasting. Pours oily pitch black with a fizzy very dark chocolate brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, vanilla, high quality dark chocolate, cinnamon, dark roast coffee, bourbon, burnt wood, roasted coconut, vanilla, cocoa powder, red chilis, toffee, nougat, tar, brown sugar and alcohol.†Taste is intense, sweet and very tiny sour with roasted malts, roasted coconut, high quality dark chocolate, resinous wood, smoked chili, bourbon, nougat, earthy tobacco, brown sugar, dark roast coffee, tar, alcohol, vanilla and hints of pine and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is intense, creamy, boozy, tiny tart and full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa powder, earthy tobacco, bourbon, roasted nuts, nougat and vanilla. A tad bit too boozy compared to regular Hunahpu.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2012
black, tan large bubbled head. Nose is burnt raisin, wood, tar, light heat. Flavor is more wood and heat, especially through mid, charred as well, light plum and milk chocolate through finish, lightly stinging sugar but balanced and dry for cigar city, meaning still a final OG thatís higher than any starting OG from Jandrainoiulle.

Bottle, "shared" at RBWG. Pours black with a small fizzy tan head that fades. Nose is whiskey, soy, salty, light coconut, cocoa. Flavor is very sweet with lots of booze. Reminded me of the black tuesday i had tried earlier in the day, but was not quite as potent. Still, I prefer the regular Hunahpu over this treatment. Fun to try, though!
