A - some say "Motor Oil." Let me specify. Old used diesal truck motor oil is much more accurate. Just an awesome pour.
S- Wow! Big chocolate covered brandy soaked cherries. Roasty malt. Just..wow
T - This beer is an assault on your pallet. Dark but sweet chocolate right up front. Then boom, a shot of brandy. Where the hell did that come from? Then a dark roast coffee with a lick of vanilla cool things down for the heat. Heat is mild and fades in about 30 seconds leaving you begging for the next sip to take this ride all over again.
M - thick, smooth, low carb. *Easy ladies, talking beer* coats pallet and stays after beer continues the journey to the liver. Liver smiles.
O- love it. Feel fortunate that Hal with The Top restaurant, Gainesville (shameless plug) gave me the opportunity to taste this remarkable example of what Fl. Breweries are producing. World class all the way.

Drank at NWIBDU tasting. Thanks!

S - Bourbon, vanilla, light pepper and cinnamon 4.25

T - Caramel, dark fudge, light bourbon sweetness, cinnamon spice but not as much as the cinnamon. Light astringency in the finish where the booze is more prominent than normal 4.5

M - Thick and creamy with light astringency from the whiskey.

O - Good beer with more complexity that the normal Huna. Not as good as the whiskey but the bourbon adds some nice sweetness

750 mL bottle poured into a tumbler.

Appearance - Viscous inky black. Stains the glass. Nice mocha head.

Smell - Still surpringly peppery. Not distinct pepperiness. Chocolate. Light bourbon. Vanilla. Not a ton of barrel.

Taste - Chocolate and then immediately peppery. Alcoholic. Some cinnamon. Lots of chocolate. The bourbon is faint. Some oak in the back.

Mouthfeel - Absurbly thick. Dry and oaky in the finish. Boozy. Extremely slow drinking.

Overall - Gets much more oaky as it warms. No sweetness. Some of the more abrasive characteristics have come out, but all of the complexity of Hunahpu is still there.
