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. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017

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. beerplace (1923) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017
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. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2017
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.

PAKK 2017 - PAKK 2017 - W aromacie śliwka w czekoladzie, bardzo gorzka czekolada, przyprawy świąteczne do piernika. Po ogrzaniu ujawnia się przyjemna beczka. Po nalaniu piana bardzo szybko opadła. O dziwo piwo nie było bardzo gęste. W smaku ponownie czekolada, kawa, przyprawowy, dosyć wytrawne. Na sam koniec pojawiła sie bardzo delikatna nuta sosu sojowego. Piwo pite przy akompaniamencie strzelających w ognisku polan wprowadza w bardzo miły stan rozluźnienia NightHawk91 (91) - POLAND - AUG 16, 2017
2016. Awesome work of the two barrels. Apple, rum, cinnamon, sweet choco, harsh hot peppers (in a good way). Med to full body. Rich and complexed. Not heavy but definitely demanding one. A small dose is enough. Worth trying. Inbreak (6402) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2017
