2014 poured from bottle into a snifter.

A: Outstanding. Pours a deep, rich, black sludge color with one of the most interesting heads I've seen on a stout... almost milk chocolate in color, which eventually fades leaving a nice ring around the head of the meniscus.

S: Sweet, rich fudgy chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cofee, and a hint of spice at the heel. I've never smelled a beer quite like it.

T: Ho. Lee. Shit. This is over the top delicious. Rich cocoa and coffee first, immediately greeted by cinnamon and vanilla sweetness, with the chillies providing just a hint of heat on the back end as the cocoa notes linger. It's like drinking liquid chocolate pudding topped with cinnamon... simply outstanding!

M: Thick and smooth without being overly chewy. Coats the palette nicely, without overstaying its welcome.

O: Straight to the top of the list of stouts for me. In fact, Hunah makes me forget every other stout I've ever had... simply amazing and deserving of it's reputation.
