black, thin CCB cardboard head dies fast, tepid soon after. Olive-green nose blows off after 10 minutes, sweet milk chocolate, playdoh and light spice. Flabby body brings heavy sweetness up front, chocolate milk sugar with light pepper heat, some cardboard mid in gritty body, finish bringing faint roast, more lactose/sugar, stale finish. No interplay or depth, lacking bitterness of any kind, simple and straightforward and all after the 10 minute green air-out. CCB is still CCB and the Mexican Cakes destroyed it.

25.4 oz bottle. Huge thanks to Beerlando for his amazing generosity! I never would have had the guns to trade for this one. Inky brown with tan fuzz then a slick. Nose is fudge brownie, musty basement, chili, raisin, cinnamon and coconut with brandy and rum emerging. Coating medium body with a soft, warming buzz. Taste is spicy chocolate, brandy, cinnamon and sweet rum. Not as extravagant as the aroma but still incredibly lush and balanced. Probably my favorite beer ever. demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Going from memory of a bottle share. Lots of booze, oak, rum, sweetness. Huna spices were mellowed compared to the regular version, but lots of complex barrel notes.

Thanks blomster for sharing!
Apperance: Oily dark brown with little/no head.
Aroma: Spices, Choclate, Bourbon.
Taste: Cinammon, Chocolate, Vanilla, Booze, Hint of chili.
Palate: Oily with little carbonation and some hint of booze in the aftertaste.
A very, very, nice beer but the hype is strong in this one. Spices seem a little too subdued.
Pour is jet black with a dark mahogany and bubbly head. Nose is super green at first, burns off after opening up a little, some olive, sugary sweetness, hints of peppery spice, some notes of sweet rum, some dark berry sweetness. Flavor is so sweet, some chalky chocolate, sweet rum, sugar every where, faint peppery spice in back. Full bodied, nicely carbonated but a touch oily. Seriously people? TheHognof (8) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2015 does not count
So oily, so much coconut. The rum shows as a spicy edge, the apple brandy as a delicate apple cider esquire tartness. So refreshing, yet so heavy in soy and yeast notes. Amazing!
