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!

2 oz pour roughly and generously shared at a small bottle share at TG on MD tapping day
Thanks to the fellow BA's for cracking this and several others
Reviewing from notes made in my head!
A - Pours clear dark brown color with minimal head and laving
S - Dark fruits is definitely something that came from the smell with some carmel notes
T - Taste is much the same on front end with dark fruits and a finish of carmel and tobacco
Figs and dates
M - Medium to full bodied and feels much like a stout
O - Overall I was very excited to try this and it is definitely the best HotD offering that I have had
Thanks again to the generous BA
