This stout looked deep, dark, and sultry. The smell was rich with bourbon, malt, cinnamon, and lactose. This is the best bourbon, chili, and spice stout I have had in 2014. Raisins and dark fruit rule in this one. The taste profile expands as the stout warms. The feel was perfect. Nice thickness, with hardly any carb. This stout is the perfect balance of Cacao Nibs, Madagascar Vanilla Beans, Ancho Chilis, Pasilla Chilis and Cinnamon.

Look-pours a muddy brown with a half finger of tan head, fades quickly but leaves nice lacing.
Smell-molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla beans, kick of chili
Taste- Sweet, syrupy malt upfront, the richness of the malt is cut by a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and chili, vanilla providing smoothness around the edges. abv is completely absent. the complimentary flavors provide a very complex yet balanced tasting experience.
Feel- motor oil thick, very creamy and very light carbonation
overall-very exciting and complex yet very balanced. an excellent experience.

This beer lived up the hype. A friend gave me a glass (I've never had Huna before and he didn't show me the bottle or tell me what it was until I was half way through and completely enjoying myself in the mystery.) Appearance was spot on, dark brown to almost black. The smell was full of bourbon with hints of spices. The taste follows the smell with even more spices up front. This became a smooth and chocolaty flavor as it went down. Mouth feel was on point with just enough carb to notice. Enjoyed every drop. One of my favorite beers to date.
