how do you not give this one a perfect score? my last few favorite beers have been imperial stouts, stone russian, and then more recently the stone 12th anniversary bitter chocolate oatmeal - but this really does blow those out of the water. thanks to joey for sharing a bit of this with us. what can you really say about it? it’s amazing. super chocolatey and thick. fuckkkk... dude.

2013 from bomber. Chocolate butterscotch and bourbon on the nose. Chocolate lacy pour that is dark as night. Nice vanilla and bourbon from the start. Such a thick dark chocolate taste. Super chewy mouthfeel. Amazing!!

This was the 2014 Huna. Sampled this side by side with 2014 Dark Lord. So cinnamony and hints of chilies. The aroma is amazing with cinnamon shinning through. Vanilla beans are slight but add a great depth to this beer. The 12% ABV is hidden amazingly well. Soo smooth. This is an incredible imperial stout. So much depth of flavor. Can't wait to try the double barrel Huna. This is on of the best beers I've ever had the pressure of trying. A++++

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2/5/2014 yellow session. First beer of the day! Thick black treacle viscous pour with a relucant tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, raisin, soft roast. Flavour is massive brown sugars, figs, raisin, tart cherry. Full bodied, smooth palate, viscous on the tongue and light mineral chalk. So much depth of flavour. Verry very smooth. Some wood and tan leather.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
just realized haven’t rated this before. Rating based on 2013, though an off year still an incredible beer. Pour is pitch black and thick with a burgundy mocha head which settles quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, cinnamon, and pepper..in a good way reminds me of Dr Pepper. Taste follows suit matching the aroma with all flavors blending well throughout the palate - love the slightly tart umami quality in the mid palate, bitter chocolate in the finish, the pepper is perfectly done with prominent flavor and only a hint of heat.Palate thick and chewy sticking to the glass and the tongue. Amazing beer even in an off year.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 bottle. Pours deep brown/black with some slight tan head, caramel bordering...head fades quickly. Aroma is cinnamon, faint espresso and milk chocolate. Taste is like a chocolate cinnamon roll sprinkled with mild chili flakes. Cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate all very present along with the warming chilies in the background. Adds volume and kick without ever being spicy. Just an amazing mixture of awesome here.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2013 bottle. Tastes like dark chocolate, licorice and molasses. The chiles and cinnamon aren’t very present anymore. Leaves a lingering dark chocolate bitterness. Great beer, but I would like to try it fresh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of mint, coffee, chocolate, weak sweets and spice. A flavor of chocolate, mint, coffee, spice, roasted malt and some very weak chili notes?

Pours dark black like oil with some tan head. Chocolate, some grain, a little coffee, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted character. Very good, very complex stout.
