4.4/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
One of my biggest wants into a Hunahpu snifter and straight to my face. Bottleworks X, '09 vintage
A. Deep dark brown in the glass with absolutely no head. No carbonation at all, gotta be honest, doesn't look all too amazing
S. Big sweet green apple dominates the nose. Smoke follows along with molasses, a tiny roast and chocolate. Smells really nice and different.
T. Apple is toned down big tone from the nose. Sweeter, well incorporated alcohol like bourbon and brandy? Milk chocolate is there as well as sweet green apple, there's a ton going on here. A tiny bit of vanilla works its way in as well as a tiny alcohol sting. Really tasty stuff.
M. Flat as flat can be but isnt a deal breaker by any means. Body is on the lighter side of heavy and feels really nice. This beer feels much better with no carbonation than it would if it was over carbonated.
O. Really really nice stuff. The nose and flavor are so unique and come through nicely. Definitely a nice brew that I'm extremely glad I had the opportunity to try!

4.55/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This is the latest release (2013). Reviewed from notes from a couple days ago.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a slight orange-ish hue. Leaves a small off-white head.
Smell: Big smoked meats, sweet bourbon, oak, brandy, dark chocolate. Very interesting and different aroma.
Taste: Matches the aroma well, which is very nice: Bourbon, brandy, dark chocolate, cedar, nice smoky finish. Very well balanced flavors. Not overly sweet.
Mouth-feel: Low carbonation, but definitely enough. Full body.
Overall: This is a very tasty, and different beer. The interesting barrels have really put a twist on this and its really nice, smoky and sweet. Very well done brew.
