Much thanks to whoever brought this out at the Philly-Pittsburgh share!

Thick oily pour, dark black, with a small collar of head that eventually receded; greasy legs on the glass. Aroma very muted, pretty much a roasty stout. As with regular Huna, this had a very weak flavor profile. Typical stouty dark malt roast, tobacco, vegetal green pepper and pickle, anise, some sweetness. Very little pepper burn, and practically no cinnamon. The barreling didn't really contribute much, though it did improve the body a bit, which I find very thin in regular Huna. This was quite viscous and full-bodied, which I've never experienced in any of this beer's variants.

Much like regular Hunahpu, I was not impressed by this beer. For all that goes into it, it just isn't executed well, and frankly just simply does not taste good. It was nice to try it, but I would never go out of my way to try it again.

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 ;)

Most disappointing brew Ive ever had with all the hype surrounding this brew. Its a straight apple sugar cinnamon bomb. The sugar and sweetness over powers everything in this beer.
