4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Thanks to Adam for contributing this offering... Again with a thick viscous pure deep black hue and topped with a moderate darker tan head that receded to a thin ring around the edges of the glass... Butterscotch and caramel upfront in the aroma with softer more mellow whiskey notes. Vanilla surfaces more through the middle and finish. Soft to moderate pepper nicely finishes things off... Flavors fail to deviate much from the aroma with solidified with charred chocolate oites to pair alongside a soft gentle whiskey presence. A light to medium pepper presence meshes nicely late and prolongs through the finish. Thick consistency throughout. Nicely executed. Original > whiskey > virgin oak at this point.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of wavers1. Thanks, man! Pours a dark, dark chocolate color; plenty oily, modestly sized fine-bubbled dark-brown head. Dark chocolate, spiciness, cocoa, and a lightly sharp bourbon character; quite nice with no harsh edges. Full mouthfeel; light carbonation; layers of cocoa, dark chocolate, spicy chili, and cinnamon; just a very different beast from the Pappy Dark Lord: more reserved, focused, unique. A delicious, non-trivial BA impy stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly less sweet and a touch less astringent and ashy than the brandy. Slightly better overall, but still nothing to get excited about. The Whisky notes are rather unimpressive.

Huge whiskey aroma, chocolate hits big in the flavor then bam the coffee kicks in, then cholos all about 30 sec apart. This is simply amazing. Jesus Christ.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 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.

Bottle generously shared by Dak @ Woodshed 1.0! Another insanely black pour with a dark chestnut head. The glass is now cocoa permanently with back to back Hunahpu pours! Bold whisky, bakerís chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, wood, raisin and cinnamon find their way to the senses. Chewy and assertive. A really great beer!
