Bottle 1 of 2 from the El Catador Club.

Appearance: Pours black, as expected with a quarter finger of prominently light brown head that collars quickly. You can tell this is Huna by how sluggishly it glugs into the glass. I think regular Huna/Zhukov might very well be the thickest beers I’ve ever drank, and this is certainly no exception.

Smell: Cocoa, cinnamon, coconut, vanilla, faint rum, apple brandy, dark fruit and let’s not forget a spicy pepper/heat element from the chiles. No bullshit, it’s all there. Honestly, this smells as advertised and radiates a formidable stench like that of no other beer prior.

Taste: There is so much going on here, describing this will certainly be no easy task. As it begins, cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla dance with each other leading into a subtle coconut that acts as a brief intermission before your palate is, get ready…PUNCHED IN THE FACE with apple brandy! Wow!! It’s impossible to miss! As the brandy subsides, spicy rum creeps in and is complemented perfectly by the subtle heat of the chiles. A unique adventure of a beer, if there ever was one.

Mouthfeel: Regular Huna gives BCBS a run for its money in the viscosity department and may even surpass it. However, I feel that the double barrel treatment may have unfathomably thinned this beer out a bit somehow, but it doesn't detract from anything...just makes it more drinkable, while still being plenty viscous. It’s just creamy and perfectly thick all at the same time

Overall: I’m not one to give 5s out, but if a brewery takes an epic beer that is already fairly complex and significantly improves upon it, I have no choice. This beer kicks ass, and is amazingly unique…I don’t like many rum beers, but it plays off the chiles perfectly to make it the best (at least partially) rum barrel aged beer I’ve ever had, and also one of the best beers ever. Don’t spend $200 on Rare…get this.
