Also didnít think Iíd ever get to try this Hunah variant. 2 ounce pour @ Hill Farmstead on Draft. Pitch black, oily, good alcohol legs and nice carbonation thatís resilient and hearty. This is far more fruity than I thought. Brandy is subdued and just comes across as booze or a fine wine at the finish. Hunan in barrels though, itís melded together perfectly. No alcohol burn, almost juicy with a fruit finish. Thick of course, oily finish, chocolate, raisins and wood. Fantastic. WillRunForBeer (2623) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Taster at the Hill. Pours nearly black with a light brown ring. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, brandy. Flavor is chocolate, cinnamon, chili, oak, Brandy and coffee in the finish. kraddel (7870) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015
@ Mega imperial stout tasting part 2.
Pours pure black, smell is very intense cinnamon and dark malts. Bitter. Taste is sharply bitter, very much roasted grains. Very boozy, too boozy to be good. Nice beer, but nothing more than íniceí to me jtclockwork (16444) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours oil black. Nose and taste of brandy, chocolate cake, cinnamon, vanilla and chili - medium body Clownoisseur (482) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2015
2013 bottle, pours a pitch black, minimal mocha colored head that vanishes quickly. Very oily in appearance and has a nice set of legs! Aromas are of brandy sweetness, couples with cocoa, tobacco and cinnamon spice. The brandy almost gives off a nice dark fruit aroma...cherries, blackberry and prune with these adjuncts. Nice. Taste is nicely balanced with the brandy barrel being prominent still. Loads of cocoa and tobacco upfront, with a nice medium bodied mouthfeel that allows the base beer to shine. As it warms the cinnamon steps up and makes itís presence felt. Light pepper heat warms but never becomes abrasive or prominent. Vanilla oak sweetness couples with dark fruit notes to provide a pretty balanced finish.

Tap at huna day, taste is chocolate and sweet booze, solid thick stout, but the flavors are getting hard to detect RRistow12 (847) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours black with a thick dark brown head. Very sweet aroma of brandy, caramel and some fruity notes. Taste is also quite sweet with mild bitterness. Definite brandy flavor with caramel, maple syrup, cinnamon and some dark fruits. Pretty tasty but I think I prefer the regular Hunahpu.

Draft sample Hunahpu day 2015. Pitch black. Brandy aroma with cinnamon, apples, and vanilla flavors. Wow, the brandy barrel adds another level to Hunahpu. Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone MrHangover (4442) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ New Years Tasting. Shared by me. Pours the blackest beer Iíve ever seen with a big brown head on top. Looks stunning. Aroma of cinnamon, brandy booze, molasses, loads of the base beer characters are present here. Great complexity going on in the aroma. Flavor is very sweet with loads of cinnamon, herbal touches, chocolate, malts, brandy and loads of base beer. The barrel ageing tweaked the regular Hunahpu in such a great way, without losing the base beer. This is top notch stuff right here! markextrae (4410) - AlingsŚs, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
bottle in a trade thanks a lot to kyle!! one of my top wants. couldnít wait anymore to crack this bad boy! poured motor oil black leaving a caramel coloured ring on top. thick lacing on the side. all the hunahpu goodness jumps right in your face. big notice of the brandy! cinnamon, apples, spirit, vanilla, dark bitter chocolate, roasted malts, dark coffe notice, small pepper hint under the tongue. milk chocolate, oak, the barrel adds some more complexity and even more smoothness to the beer. but i think there are some spices left during it.. but the barrel notice is really amazing! apple brandy is top notch for this beer! to bad we never get to try it! wondering how the double barrel is compared to this one.
