Small bottle thanks to Countbeer. Black with a brown mist across the top of the beer. Light oak, vanilla and mellow bourbon, rich chocolate, light anise and red wine, toffee, and some molasses. Low carbonation, full body, alcohol is present but not too hot, sweet and viscous, quite rich, hint of bitterness at the end, great mouthfeel and long luxurious ending. The best of the HV series I’ve had so far.

Courtesy of madmitch76, cheers Ken! Tiny nip bottle pours out mahogany with amber edges and loose off white head. The aroma offers up molasses covered chocolate malt balls, boozy heat, dark roasted malts and more chocolate. The taste has rich chocolate and dark roasted maltiness mixing with burnt wheat toast, brown sugar and slightly spicy oak notes. Around those flavors I get some spicy black licorice and black strap molasses. Yummy stuff that holds its own against pretty well against rum and whiskey Hunahpu variants sampled tonight.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2012 (Bottle) Pours near black with almost no head. The aroma is fat roasted with creamy dark chocolate and espresso. Bit mint and milky, almost medical. Black pepper and bell pepper. Some vanilla/buttery oak, nougat and wood in the background. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Tones of aggressive roast, black pepper, green bell pepper and subtle bourbon, vanilla-driven oak. The mouthfeel is peppery, almost numbing and light oily. Light carbonation. Smooth, yet super bitter and roasted finish. Medium bodied.

Ughsmash (7323) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Nip bottle, bottled on 6/8/10.. #894 of 2483. Poured very deep brown with a short, easily-resuscitated tan head. The aroma picked up sweet and lightly-smoky whiskey over darker chocolate maltage.. accents of vanilla and charred oak.. a little barrel heavy, but still really good. The flavor found dark chocolates and mocha at the strong, dark core, with sweet and tangy bourbon surrounding.. more roasty coffee toward the back.. loved the coffee and bourbon on the long finish. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. dry and peppery from the barrels.. excellent balance.. loved it!

12/5/11. Cute little nip bottle thanks to ericandersnavy! Pitch black pour with a small brown head that fades instantly to a ring. Sweet, almost boozy BA aroma with rich fudge, vanilla, caramels, marzipan,and a bit of coffee. Equally sweet flavor of dark fruits, black cherries, and a touch of tartness at first followed by vanilla, huge roast and char, and a bit of coffee. Tasty!

MotherBrother (782) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2011
Pour pitch black, with no head. Aroma of burnedness, coffee, chocolate, a bit of Dark fruits. And then a whole lot of barrel. A nice long aftertaste of roasted coffee. Medium to semi-full body, with very little CO2. Really nice, no doubt.

Bottle 1159 of 2483. Heavy cocoa, vanilla, and roasted coffee along with sugar cane and red wine in the nose. Big dose of dark Godiva chocolate, split vanilla bean, alcohol, and molasses. Limited carbonation but the mouthfeel doesn’t disappoint. Warms the belly. Tasty!
