3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(0.75l, 2011 vintage, 11.5%, thanks 50belair!) Almost black with a small, brown head. Aroma has stale chocolate (cocoa nibs maybe not optimal for ageing), slightly soy-saucy maltiness and vanilla. Flavor is very interesting with cacao and vanilla clearly present, and chillies giving slight burn in the throat. Very full-bodied and smooth with low carbonation. Hard to say if there’ alcohol burn or not because of the added chili. Interesting, yet not the most drinkable impy. 6438

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Maakun shares the legendary beer porn. Black with brown head(!) super roasted dry malts. Chocolate, flower petals, dried prunes, raisans, burnt wood, burnt paper, roasted peppers, vanilla, parfume, burnt matches, chocolate cake, coffee. Moderate sweet, steady bitter and mild spicey/peppery. Maximum bodied, smooth texture, good as no carbo but the pepper cleverly fills in with a prickliness on the tastebuds--who are my best buds, at this very moment. Oompf! Concentrated black mass. So thick and burnt, and not relying on sweetness. Awesome! Never expected a beer with pepper to top my all time list.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 2014 vintage, shared. Pitch black with dark brown head that looks like liquid chocolate. Must be the darkest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. Massive aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, flowers, chocolate, cocoa beans, smoked chilies, sweet espresso beans, fudge, toffee. Over medium sweet but not that sweet actually, with nice roasted bitter notes and light chili burn. Full bodied with thick syrupy feel. Massive beer, really fits my taste, well deserving of it’s status in my book. It’s actually almost balanced...

Bottle at home shared with family to finish off Pats win over the chiefs. This was thrown in as an extra in a trade with Ticyclist we did for some Polotmavy, yes you read that fucking craziness right. Any ways deep dark pour nose is chocolate and roasted malt some spice. Tastes of light spicing, roasted malt, deep dark chocolate, lactose, some earth. Nice palate easy drinking for the abv but maybe im already a tad blitzed, but with this big a bomber defiantly one to share, I guess that’s a warning to all kids out there with a bomber of hunahpu.
