Bottle split with mcberko. Pours an amazing black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, smoked chilli, cinnamon. Flavour of the above, chill, burnt caramel, with a burnt/peat/iodine finish. Full bodied, dry finish. Nice. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
Rating #2500. 750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany). Pours pitch black with a small brown head - looks beautiful. Nose of mild chili peppers, which don’t overpower, cocoa nibs, vanilla, hint of cinnamon - the chilis are slightly more prominent in the nose than in the flavour... Flavour is dominated by rich chocolate cake, with vanilla beans, burnt caramel, and subtle chili peppers - the chilis start off more prominent, but then fade into the background. With each additional sip, the chilis becomes less and less noticeable, paving way for intense chocolate cake qualities. Rich layers and full-bodied. Very well-made and enjoyable. b3shine (9073) - Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle to oversized snifter (thanks mikem409). Looks good; pitch black with nice lacing. Smells good too; malty and roasty. Tastes solid; spicy with a dry finish. Very nice! kazin (616) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
Intense taste of chocolate, syrup, roasted malts and a nice spicyness in the aftertaste. andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2012
Pitch black with a dense dark brown head. Massive aroma with so much going on it’s almost over the top. Same goes for the flavor, intense chocolate, spice and a fat malty roastiness accompanied by an equally fat body. Tasty..

Pours a 1 finger thick beautiful mocha head dissipates to form a solid ring around my ccb snifter and stays throughout the drink. It has an aroma of strong dark chocolate with coffee in the background. It tastes of chocolate up front, coffee and vanilla notes with a finishing burn from the alcohol then from the peppers. This beer is so complex I am tasting something different each time I try it. Hunahpus is the greatest beer I’ve ever had, so complex and so delicious!

draft, pours black with frothy tan head. nose is molasses and slight coffee with roasted flavors. first sip is nice with toasted flavors and roasted malt with coffee and burnt sugar. finish is plesant with coffee bitternes. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to thome50. 2011 edition. Pours pitch black with an oily, very dark brown chocolate head. It quickly disappears to nothing. Nose is heavy on milk chocolate, spices, light salt, light chilli and a mingling sweetness to gel it all together. Works well. Taste is sweet while at the same time robust and smokey. Cigar box notes come out to play while it finishes very spicey and chocolatey. Chilli is right on the back end. The palate is very full and creamy. Very lengthy. Leaves a nice bite to finish.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2016 Shared by someone at the Monte’s Krown tasting yesterday. Pours a jet black with a brown head that reduces to a lace quite quickly. Smell is cocoa, spice, dust. Taste is sweet, spicy. Finish is spicy with some sweetness. thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2012
From notes at (StoutFest). Bottle via mattyb83 and sorta thanks to ericandersnavy who originally sent me the bottle that was stolen by some meth heads living next to my grandma. Aroma is cinnamon, chocolate, sweet. Taste, slight coffee with a load of cinnamon, dark chocolate and some faint chili heat. Overall, nice, but nothing amazing. The chili is nice with the style but I love the heat.
