Had at the Hunahpu release party as a part of RBWG 2010. The pour is pure black with a nice and really dark brown head. The aroma is basically all wood, lots of oak, some bourbon characteristic, but not as much as I had hoped. The flavor is awesome, though, with plenty of bourbon and wood mixed with awesome stout characteristics including chocolate and coffee and a wonderful spicy finish as well. Love this stuff!

holy rusted metal batman is this thing wonderful!!! i think my RB user number is calculated in with the rest of the homers so that my score will not affect the score much. poured black with a nice copper head that laces the glass and coats the the glass like a fox fur covering a hot chicks bare naked body. aroma was wonderful. the bourbon mingled perfectly with the chili’s, fudge and pepper were also apparent. the flavor matched the nose spot on, but there was a little bit more heat tickling my tongue just to tease me a little. the body was thick like a female soccer players legs. need i say anymore about the caliber of this beer?

Handbottle, with a big thanks to gunhaver for the major hookup. Pours pitch black with a finger and a half creamy cinnamon colored head; great oily legs and no lacing. Aroma needs a little time to open up, but wow does it impress when it does. The pepper and cinnamon spice come out first, along with spiced chocolate, vanilla, oak, black licorice, and a little bourbon and espresso. Flavor is more of the same, with chili and pepper spice, cinnamon, spiced chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, espresso, oak and a hint of bourbon. The pepper and spice linger wonderfully on the palate more than anything else I can recall, decadent and rich throughout. Wow, this one really delivers a unique and impressive experience. Believe the hype. Thanks again Geiger!

Pours a black with iodine lacing with a rich chocolate head. Aroma of bourbon, a bit of apple, dark roast. Flavor is the same with chocolate roast added. Mouth feel is heavy body with low carbonation and creamy. Overall, in 2 simple words DAMNED GOOD SHIT!!!.....Well, that might have been 3 but you get my drift.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 HOLY SHIT!! Black as night with a everlasting tan head. I’ve recycled lighter-colored used motor oil. Highly viscous, clingy and glazes the glass with a dark honey colored veil when swirled. Aroma is bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, roasty, fresh coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is bourbon, alcohol, espresso, bitter chocolate and slightly spicy. EXTREMELY full, thick, oily, sticky, clingy mouthfeel. My notes indicate that I need more of this.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is bourbon, oak, chocolate and pepper. The flavor is strong oak, chocolate and pepper, with the pepper being a little overpowering and giving a light burning sensation in the mouth. Thick mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation.
