God bless the kind soul that shared his bottle with me on Dark Lord Day 2013. It was a highlight of the day, experiencing the best non-barrel aged stout I have ever had.
Poured into my trusty travel snifter, the stout was a deep black color with a mocha head. The beer did not appear to be as thick as I would have expected. In the aroma, one gets chocolate, a slight hoppiness, and a certain spice. One also gets a malt backbone on a lesser scale. In the initial taste, there was so much going on, it was amazing. One the detectable notes are chocolate, citrus, pineapple, cinnamon, spice, and burnt malts. What is most amazing is that these notes co-exist rather than clash. In the aftertaste, the citrus is most apparent while linger on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is a hair too thin, as I find myself wishing this one would last a lot longer.
Hunahpu goes to close to the front of the line in terms of the beers I have had in my life. I need to find more.
