Alrighty . Here we go ! I first would like to thank the lovely Ba who was drunk off hunahpu while packing my box ! Cause he packed a double barrel instead of a regular ! Honest mistake , right ? Drinking and packing multiple boxes don't mix !!

A: the pour was sexy, silky , and a tad oily looking. Viscous ! Minimal head and lacing. Totally barrel appearance .

S: this very apple brandy forward. Kinda sweet smelling almost . Mild rum notes on the nose. Takes a minute to find. I'm getting raspberries and apples. Not the most inviting smell IMO . The vegatal chilies and spices are subtle. I detect those more than the rum notes.

T: lots of raspberry and apple going on and a cacao and spice finish. The chocolate is nice . Very Mayan-ish in taste if you will. I kinda like how dirty the chocolate tastes . The apple raspberry thing going on I find rather gross though. The chocolate is all the taste has working for it. I think I feel a tickle from chilies but I can't tell with the other cloying flavors from the barrel notes.

M: not as chewy as I expected , but decent body. Fair carbonation. The chocolate adds a graininess to it.

O: its not a bad beer but I believe its wayyy over hyped. It's no Life is Like ;)

2014, enjoyed in a tulip.

A: Thick pour, very viscous out of the bottle. Not a ton of effervescence. The pour finishes with a slight head lacing around the glass. Color is jet black, head more a muddy sand.

S: Common aromas release ground cocoa, oak, fig, apple, and crushed cinnamon.

T: Overwhelmingly Apple Brady forward. The Rum aging doesn't help as it adds a generous amount of sweetness to the brew. Thought almost all the wonderful flavors of a traditional Hunaphu were absent.

M: Sparingly carbonated with a familiar Huna body.

O: Thought this one was overly sweet. The Apple Brady completely dominated in our tasting.
