750 ml - Thanks for sharing this gem, ygtbsm94. Brad--you are the man (as you might have not already known). Pitch black, thick dark tan head. Monster spicy chocolate cinnamon and peppery vanilla espresso aromas throughout. Flavor is similar and very well balanced. Syrupy, full bodied, and absolutely stunning and unique throughout. Cheers to the CCB boys. Keep up the great work...

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2014 vintage bottle pour at Cigar City. Always good to stumble upon a top 10 beer when your hopes were high, but reality suggested otherwise. No more 2016 left, so the compare game is out. Jet black pour with a rocky brown foam head. Maple, chocolate, oak, smoke, and brown sugar make up quite the complex and intriguing aroma. Flavor is like the best cookie ever made. Thick syrup body, sweet chocolate, vanilla, oats, and a dry, teasing finish. Wife hates it. I LOVE it!

I’m not a huge fan of regular Huna, but I still have to give this 4.3. Much better than regular Abraxas, Mexican cake, and bomb! The best non barrel aged spiced stout.

Aroma: Cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, little touch of chilli peppers, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Appearance: Pitch-black, tan 1-finger head. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, hint of spiciness and hot from chilli in the background, basically everything from aroma you can also notice in taste. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft to medium carbonation, smooth, long medium sweet, spicy and chilli hot finish. Overall: Really masterly balanced, delicious, complex, one of the best spiced imperial stouts I have proved so far.
