I tried this Brandy Barrel Hunaphu this past weekend. All of my friends are hyped up about this brew. I enjoyed the smell very much. It smells delicious , vanilla, and cinnamon came out most.

As far as the taste I was not very impressed. It was a harsh burn. I enjoy imperial stouts but this have me some heart burn. I will be trying regular hunaphu this week. I will let you know if it was just the BB that did not peak my taste.

Despite the AMAZING reviews this beer gets, I simply just didnt 'get' it. I found it to be tasty, but more than my 8oz glass started to become a chore.

The aroma is amazing with a lot of little nuances making up the collective body of scents. It's the flavor that gets me; it's SO fucking sweet. I don't do malty IPAs and sweet stouts are of course hard for me to fall in love with. With all the flavor jam-packed into the bottle, I found the drinkability very low and overwhelmed by the sweet fudge-like flavors.

Still a wonderful experience and even though I wasn't IN LOVE, I will still give it a good grade for the sheer complexity of this beer.

Cheers!
