Clownoisseur (487) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle via trade. Pours an inky black, cascading foamy brown/cinnamon colored head that fades to a thin ring with oily splotches. Aromas of cocoa, bourbon, wet oak, light cinnamon, light vanilla. Taste follows with fudge, molasses, light cinnamon, medium barrel, faint peppers. Sticky sweet. Light cinnamon in finish with warming alcohol....barrel touch of wet oak and vanilla. Medium bitter. Really tasty stuff!

Thanks Dan. Poured a thick inky black with no head. Aromas of barrel juice and cocoa powder. Taste was more chocolate than typical hunah. Nice beer.

2027 bottle to glass. Nose is huge cinnamon. Light booze and vanilla. Taste is lightly spiced with a ton of coconut (what?) and awesomeness truly amazing. Seriously. The pepper and cinnamon are in perfect balance and the bourbon is just amazing. Likely the best hunahpu I have ever had

ctipping (2236) - Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2017
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 5/25/2013. Viscous inky black. Stains the glass. Nice mocha head. Nose is still surpringly peppery, though not a distinct type of pepperiness. Chocolate. Light bourbon. Vanilla. Not a ton of barrel. Tastes of chocolate and then immediately peppery. Alcoholic. Some cinnamon. Lots of chocolate. The bourbon is faint. Some oak in the back. Absurdly thick. Dry and oaky in the finish. Boozy. Extremely slow drinking. Gets much more oaky as it warms. Some of the more abrasive characteristics have come out, but all of the complexity of Hunahpu is still there.

4.6
Klimaet (3022) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 16, 2017
Bottle split on day 2 of Coconut/Cinnamon Death 2017. Pours pitch black with a small dark dense brown head. Aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, fudge, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chili, dry tobacco, licorice. Yuhhhhsss. Taste has lots of cinnamon, vanilla, fudge, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chili fruit, roasty malt, licorice, some coffee-like peppery notes. Damn this held up well. Galaxies better than AB.

4.3
Desverger (13004) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2017
Bottle sample (massive thanks to Tad & co 14/04/2017) - black pour with a thin tanned head. Sweet and medium roasted malty with big notes of chocolate and caramel, some treacle and fudge notes coming in, opulent thick mouthfeel, nice medley of spices creating some heat on the palate, deep resonating bourbon soaked wooden notes, light coconut and vanilla accents into the finish. Gorgeous.

4.4
GlasgowTAD (1934) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a modest firm brown head which soon recedes to a bubbly lacing around the circumference. Aroma is caramel, fudge, cocoa, oak, bourbon, a little bit of sherry oxidisation. Taste is cocoa bitter, cinnamon spice, a little bit of chilli, oak, slightly roasty, liquorice, vanilla oak. Full body with a thick mouthfeel.

4.7
blueshockey24 (649) - Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2017
2015 BA on Tap at Oskar Blues in Longmont, CO on 4/7/17 for a special CANspiracy event. Jet black (thick) with tan head. Aroma is chocolate and cinnamon with hints of bourbon. Taste is thick rich chocolate with hints of cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla and heat from the peppers with a bourbon cinnamon chocolate finish. Excellent!
