3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at their Brevard Brewery served in a rocks glass; deep murky darker amber color with very thin light tan head. Aroma notes of whiskey, heavy malt sweetness, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla and oak. Taste adds softer bourbon hit, toffee, brown sugar and some earthy hops. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, rich with lingering malty whiskey finish. Huge beer almost border lining on too much, but in the end the whiskey/chub fight works out.

Murky dark cocoa brown with a foamy beige head. Boozy brown sugar bourbon nose with sweet cake like vanilla and chocolate. Wonderful chocolate cake flavors with vanilla and coconut abounding, with lots of brown sugar boubon and sweet chocolaty oak. Outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This review is for the whiskey barrel aged version that was served at Hunahpu’s day 2014. On draft and poured into Huna’s day souvenir taster glass. Cola brown and clear with thin tan head. Smells of malt, whiskey, wood, coconut, caramel, and toffee. Strong barrel notes come on the taste with coconut, wood, and vanilla leading the way. Malt, peat, caramel, and brown sugar come mid-palate with moderately strong sweetness. Boozy burn on the swallow. Medium-full body, sticky thick texture, nearly flat carbonation, boozy sweet finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at hunahpu day 2014. Pours a cloudy brown with muddy red highlights. Barely any head. Smell is boozey with the expected bourbon/whiskey and vanilla tones. Taste is initially bourbon with some hints of toffee and caramel. Vanilla comes through mid palate. Mouthfeel is a little sweet, as I would expect. Likely amplified due to minimal carbonation in this pour. Overall I like it better than regular old chub, not as smokey.
