like no other. the base hunahpu is elite level stuff, truly dynamite, but this double barrel edition is a total game changer, bringing it from magnificent to one of the best beers to ever grace my palate. its everything the base beer is, but the texture, oh god the texture. its like beer jelly, spreadable, but so smooth for how thick it is, coating the palate but not rotting the teeth or guts, it just glides down, really heavenly in feel, unrivaled really, perfect, for real. the taste too is ramped up in this one. its got a hint of calvados in the nose, with that sweet apple fruity cider thing, which is a perfect pair for the dark grain. the rum aspect is a little less obvious, but there is a sweet vanilla spice there which amplifies both the vanilla and the chili peppers. its a genius dual fusion process at work, and it gives further credence to the idea that bourbon barrels are not the ultimate evolution of wood ageing beer. the oak mellows the alcohol that was never even hot in the first place to the level of dangerously easy. it drinks like a cognac though, aromatic and improving always as it warms. again the mouthfeel of this is as good as any beer ive ever sipped. its truly worth the hype, an unforgettable beer and the best i could imagine.
