HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Truly a remarkable beer. Nose gives apple, cinnamon spice, some cocoa. Taste follows suit, but has a really excellent meshing of the apple character with the spice notes and the chocolate sweetness isnt overwhelmingly rich to take those flavors to the background. Somehow manages to not taste boozy at all, and the apple flavor comes extremely naturally rather than tasting like flavored alcohol. I wouldnt say this is as good a pure stout as AB Hunahpu, probably because the base beer isnt in the same realm of awesomeness, but its got a flavor profile that really differentiates itself. Extremely grateful to have had a nice large glass of this.

Bottle at Himmeriget with Bob. Black with a small dissapating head. Smells good. Cinnamon, chocolate, wet wood, light licoroce, apple cake. Flavour follows. Lots of things. Cinnamon, chili heat, chocolate, apple cake, coconut. Crazy and intense, yet not difficult to drink. Light acidity. Warming finish with chili and spices. Stands out.

Desverger (10253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle [email protected], Copenhagen - pours black with a tan head. Roasted malty with some bitter chocolate, some vanilla, caramel, toffee apple (which the accompanying cinnamon works excellently with) chilli heat comes in but nice balance with the inherent sweetness of the other flavours, nice brandy infused wooden nuances, great warming boozy contentment into the finish. Immense.
