Pours a pitch black beer with a dark chocolate head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, roasted and fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness, coffee and brandy. The palate is sticky with sweetness. Overall a really good beer.

Growler shared with Per, HUGE thanks to Greg. Pours oily pitch black with a small brown diminishing head. Aroma is fantastic; slightly vinous dark fruits raisins vanilla cocoa coffee chocolate roasted malty sweet. Flavor mmmmm.... Damn so good. Acidy fruity roasted sweet in front, explosion of cocoa chocolate coffee licorice vanilla and a bit booze with some pungent bitterness, all flavors just stay and stay all the way to the end with longlived bitter chocolate licorice and warming boozy aftertaste.

Jet black and then some. Tiny light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice and spirits. Sweetish chocolate, roast, dessert wine, licorice flavour with a faint hint of ash and some dried fruit. Deliciously complex and free of that annoying green pepper flavour often seen in Hunapu...

Nice size sample from growler thanks to Corbet! Pours solid black & viscous with a thin mocha head. It smells of boozy whiskey, brandy, and vanilla as the oak gives off a powerful bouquet. Taste is chocolate, fudge, sweet brandy, oak with some roast and sweet coffee. A bit of pepper is noticeable on the finish and adds that nice base Hunahpu element. Very full bodied imperial stout with low carbonation and a thick, mildly sweet malt feel. One of the best stouts I’ve had and the only Hunahpu variant I like more than the base!

Tiny pour from a growler shared by Alex. Motor oil colored. Aroma of brandy, bourbon, malt. Thick body, flat, tastes of malt, bourbon, slightly tart. Very nice beer, reminded me of Sam Adams triple bock without the soy sauce flavor.

Served on tap at Stone’s 16th Anniversary Celebration. The tap list has it as "Apple Brandy Barrels" but I am not seeing that in the database so I am putting my rating here for now. The appearance is a rich inky black with a rich brown head. The aromas are full of chocolate and apple brandy with a healthy dose of malt aromas. The flavors are warm gooey dark chocolate, rich flavorful brandy with some apple tones, heavy roasted malts that give off a touch of coffee with some cinnamon and spice. The finish is rich with a maple oak profile. Very thick mouth where the heat is way present but not distracting. Just a wonderful beer and a real treat to make it to CA for a festival!
