On draft at CCB. Pours jet black with thin brown head. Nose is huge malts, mollasses, spices, hints of pepper and big oak. Flavor is more subdued than regular Hunahpus. Still huge viscous body and all the greatness of Hunahpus. Big oak flavor sort of takes it down a notch, but still amazing.

Tap @ Hunahpu release day!! Nose is lots of oak and some vanilla and dry chili smokiness. If you’ve ever cooked or made mole with chilis then you know what I mean. Poured the usual jet black with a super dark colored head that coated the glass. Taste was lightly smokey with loads of oak. Almost too much. The vanilla, chocolate, and chili heat come out when the brew warms up some. Quite unique and good.

Smelled great, almost earthy with a robust chocolate and hops nose. This was a funky one, tasted like a lot of chocolate and roasted malts with a presence of wood that was more like a pencil though. Wasn’t too complex in that it was easy to pick out what I did and didn’t like about this brew. This one makes a great sipper however.

Poured a jet black with very little head straight from a 32 ounce growler. Aroma of chocolate, oak, chilis, vanilla, and more oak. Flavor tastes like the regulare Hunahpu, with a heavy oak treatment. Really good overall, and has a real nice oak aftertaste, and a slight hint of smoke.

Pours jet black. Aroma is sweet and roasty. The oak comes through on the nose as well. Taste is complex with coffee, chocolate, wonderful smoothness from the oak, and great heat on the end. Sticky mouthfeel...this one will stay with you. Fantastic.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 Pour is deep black with dark tan sticky head. Smell is ashy resiny dark coffee light roast and molasses. Taste is oaky sweet light but a big huge vanilla sweet light cherry not much pepper nibs a bit of alcohol. Really really good thx ccb.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 9/24/11. On tap at BA Hunahpu. Jet black pour with a small brown head. Slightly sour, roasty chocolate and coffee aroma with a touch of oaky vanilla in there. Nice roasty coffee and chocolate flavor, some ash, a touch of tartness, and a subtle hint of oaky vanilla as well. Nice! Retry from the growler shows even more vanilla and coconut in the flavor. Awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 On tap at the Funky Buddha. Joan Jett black pour with a beautiful dark brown head. The aromas are very similar to regular Huhahpu’s deep roasted malts, bitter chocolate, and peppers. The oak makes a huge statement and while it doesn’t overwhelm the fantastic base beer, it does sort of mask the coco nibs, cinnamon, & vanilla undercurrents I love. That being said you still get a little heat from the chiles in the finish....

On draft at Funky Buddha for Cigar City Tap Takeover. This has everything you expect in a Hunaphu’s and more. The aroma is full of chocolate, oak, wood chips, and chili pepper. Flavor is peppery and chocolately. The oak presence is there but there is no real distinct alcohol flavor, hence the virgin oak. Quite amazing.
