Tasty stout. Looks and tastes like chocolate milk. Surpasses old rasputin in class. If you like imperial stouts this is the winner

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at Tryst in Delray Beach
A: Scary ass pour...pitch black, thick as oil - sheets of beer coat the glass, big brown cap.
S: Bourbon (but very well balanced, not hot or boozy), oak/wet wood, lots of vanilla, amazingly complex. Light underlying sweetness (not Hunaphu sweet though) + fudge and cocoa
T: More bourbon than the nose, but still kept balanced, big fudge and chocolate, cocoa, bitterness. Very well rounded and the flavors all play off each other well.
MF: Monster body on this - one of the thicker stouts I’ve had, carbonation was spot on considering the growler pour a few days after
Notes: Glad to have tried this one! Wish I sampled the brandy version as well.

Dark black in color, clear with a thin tan head. Big Chocolate and dark coffee aroma. Nice dark roasty malt flavor mixed with a good amount of hops. This was a big huge thick dark back brew. Lots of bourbon and oak flavoring in the body and finish. Lots of alcohol . Very tasty one of the best.

Entering old rates. 75cl bottle courtesy of degarth. Similaire à sa version normale, mais ici aide par un ajout énorme de bourbon, qui me convient parfaitement. Reste épaisse et complexe en bouche, le tout sur un profile immense de bourbon, à la fois doux/vanille, note boisée de chêne et le tout sur le bourbon. Complexe avec ce qu’il faut de malt grillé, caramel et torréfie pour des notes subtiles de café.

4 roses 2010 growler from JW77. Huge thanks! Pour is black as the night with no head. Huge vanilla, chocolate, prune, slight coffee notes in the aroma. Big and fucking bold. Thick and chewy body, but no where near the sludge of the brandy. Loads of dark chocolate, vanilla, slight bitter coffee, earthy, and slight bourbon. Delicious! Well integrated between beer and barrel.

Old tasting note from first Hunahpu release. I liked the Zhukov’s bourbon/brandy more than the Hunahpu’s - though I don’t have a lot of info (long day of drinking) - 8.0

Bottle at Papsø. Entered as my rating no. 3900. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. The aroma is heavy roasted with notes of coffee, chocolate and light bourbon. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, chocolate and light tobacco. Very intense and thick.

Shared by Daknole during his Final4 tasting. Bottle pours black with a beige head. Aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, heavy roasted malt, vanilla, bourbon and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of oak and molasses covered marshmallows. This thing was definately a beast! Thanks Dak as usual!
