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.

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.

sonnycheeba (4100) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2012
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.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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!

MrChopin (3575) - 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.

Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of vanilla, spice, dark chocolate, liqurice and coconut. A flavor of vanilla, spice, chili, dark chocolate, weak coffee and an oily texture.

bottle... my favorite of the variants, very balanced, smooth whiskey finish, still can taste a lot of the base... very good
