Aromat: ziemistość, mokre drewno, cynamon mniej wyczuwalny niż w wersji nieleżakowanej (naprawdę nieznaczny), przyjemne utlenienie w typie trochę suszone owoce, lekko wyczuwalna czekolada, brandy. Smak: lekko drażniąca ostrość bardziej wyczuwalna (niekoniecznie z papryczek, być może większy wpływ ma tutaj beczka po rumie), przyjemna wytrawność, gorzkość taka właśnie rumowo-ostra. Poza tym w smaku jest wyczuwalne to samo co w aromacie. Piana jest lepsza niż w wersji nieleżakowanej. Piwo jest wymagające, niełatwe. Jak dla mnie jest bardzo dobre, ale nie genialne.

Potężny aromat, uderza czekoladowmi pralinami z orzechami. Po ochłonięciu wyłapać można rum i cukier kandyzowany, kakao i lekką paprykę. W smaku potężne bardzo czekoladowe. Jest jak gęsta gorzka czekolada do picia. Gorzkie kakao, wanilia, niuanse kokosa i mocne rozgrzewanie chili – wyraźnie mocniejsze niż w podstawce.

Fruity, plums, spicy finish. Very complex, just a hint of alcohol, lots of plums and nuts. Barrels made great work.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Batch 2. Thanks Virby44 for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing pitch black with very thin translucent brown rims and very sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows strong rum influence with moderately intense fruit forward notes of apple and cinnamon. The palate is oily, slick, and well carbonated. Cinnamon forward spiciness with a strong rum background throughout. Mid-palate warms up with chilies, followed by light notes of baked apple, finished by more apple, cinnamon, and a moderate coffee bitterness to tie it off. Moderate spiciness throughout.

Bottle at Hopishop 2017. Black pour. Aroma of spicey herbal chili, fruity brandy, rum and lots of booze. Taste has cherry, smooth chili heat, apples, red fruit, caramel and a spicey finish. Quite the experience.

Pitch black. Dark chocolate, hot spices and booze; pretty much what you are looking at.
Vanilla, roasted nuts, maple and pecan ice cream, then more waves of chili pepper; moderately sweet, but full bodied.
Extreme, not elegant, just extreme.

750ml bottle @ Alex's. Pours an opaque black with a small brown head. Nose is barrels, wood, and molasses. Flavour is molasses, leather, slight ashtray, spices, Worcestershire. It's a bit rough with booze and then the chili spice lingers on the palate quite a bit.

750ml bottle at Alex's (thx, Hugo V.!). Pours a very dark brown with a weak brown head. Aroma (first nose was sundried tomatoes with chocolate!) is cinnamon, sweet. Kind of similar to regular Huna. Taste is veeery spicy, woody, with some brandy notes. Not really a my style, but it is good.

Very dark brown. No head. On the nose, strong and sugary, the rum notes seeming more evident. On the palate, a whack of cinnamon, extra sweet sugars, toffee, molasses, and then there's a cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of anchoish chile...so rich and delicious. Here, the barrel shows with a touch of rum, but aside from some late heat I'm not sure there's much of the brandy barrel. The spicy chile and cinnamon still comes through in the finish.

What can you say? It's the pinnacle of saisons. The slightly tangy, slightly fruity, but so refreshing. It's definitely the standard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
