Tried this elixir of the Mayan kings at NoHo beer/food pairing dinner.

Appearance: The liquid oozes out from the carafe it was being served from. So viscous it is almost like being served old motor oil. Black and dense! The head is a dark cappuccino color; nice and creamy and retains (after pouring) for a bit before it dissipates into a slightly thinner layering atop this bourboned concoction.

Smell: Wow. Straight up bitter chocolate, followed bu cinnamon, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Very warm and inviting

Taste: HAHAHA! if the smell was "inviting" the taste is exponentially irresistible. This has pretty much surpassed all my expectations. Some sweet and warm bourbon up front, followed by chocolate, cinnamon . . . and there's the chile. Chile lingers just a bit after the drink, but its the perfect finish to the sweetness of the chocolate and the warmth of the bourbon.

Mouthfeel & Drinkability: Outstanding! This beer is thick and brawny enough to stand up to a cigar and flavorful and balanced enough to go with a mayan chocolate cookie (thanks to the folks @ NoHo for that one as well!) Easily one of the best beers I've ever had the pleasure to try.

Pours black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, bits of chilies, cinnamon, and of course wonderful bourbon. The flavor is incredible chocolate, bourbon and oak, some vanilla with that great hit of chilies on the back end. Amazing, just amazing I need this on tap at my house like everyday :)

Served at NoHo Bistro Cigar City Beer dinner.

A: Pours black as night, not a drop of light can penetrate this one. Wonderful tall evil cinnamon colored head nice retention and excellent lace.

S: Wonderful aromas on this beer. Lots of roast with strong chocolate notes. The cinnamon is there with subtle vanilla. Hints of earthy peppers seem to mix well with the oak and booze.

T: Wow this beer is stupid good. I can not begin to explain the depth on this beer. I thought Hunahpu's was mind blowing, add barrel and WOW! As it crosses the tongue it is like liquid fudge in your mouth. Full, rich, fine chocolate. The spices then begin to dance in your mouth with the cinnamon leading the way. The oak and vanilla somehow push their way through the flavor explosion. Notes of very light booze and the spice of peppers finish this one off.

M: Very full in body, rich, smooth, a real beer experience.

D: I could sit back and sip this beer for the rest of my life.

A - Black body, 1 finger of dark brown and slightly reddish head.

S - Oak, bourbon, dark fruits.

T - A bit of bourbon/oak at first that quickly transitions into spicy chillies and cinnamon. Dark fruits. A bit of chocolate in the finish.

M - Thick though not as much as the non BA version. Perfect carbonation for the style.

Fantastic beer. Better than regular Huna.
