Found my review of this beer from the Hunahpu's release last March at Cigar City. What an awesome beer this was.

A: Jet Black, Nice tan head, excellent lacing, viscous.

S: Sugary fruit, high alcohol sweetness and malt, full bodied charred malt, woody bourbon, excellent aromas.

T: Brown sugar, heavy bourbon influence that is very tasty. Awesome full bodied malt bomb with notes of the chiles and cocoa nibs coming through behind the bourbon sweetness and savory flavors. What a huge taste and an awesome one at that.

M: Exactly what you'd want in a big imperial stout on draft, I'll let you imagine the viscous coating feel you'd like here.

D: Very, very tasty. No 5 because I just couldn't order another since it was so heavy. Maybe I should have though...

Pours black with a chocolate head that dissipates to next to nothing.

I may sound crazy, but I smell tangerines mixed in with the bourbon and chiles. It is interesting what flavors and smells come out after the barrel gets a hold of it.

Tastes of bourbon and chili. Unfortunately most of the subtleties are lost. Lots of chili burn in the finish.

This is a little lighter than usual. I overheard some carbonation problems, but it is still creamy.

Pretty drinkable. Definitely a sipper.

On tap.

Pours black as night with a big thick mocha head that recedes leisurely to a hefty collar and swirl of mocha cream in the middle. The head perks up with every swirl and leaves sticky bubbles sliding down the sides. I've seen very few beers that look this good.

The aroma has all kinds of things going on, starting with a sweet vanilla and bourbon whiff initially. It's joined by the underlying bakers chocolate and heavily roasted malts. The pepper is present, though I think it's a tad less prevalent than in the non-BA version.

The taste is one of the most complex I've ever encountered, just an explosion of different flavors. This is a bourbon shock up front but mellowed with some wood and the vanilla sweetness. The backbone is black malts and dark chocolate, with a roasted character throughout. The finish is wonderful and interesting with the pepper really coming out and does battle with the bourbon for who will linger longer.

The body is insanely creamy and full bodied but the light bubbly carbonation keeps it from sitting too heavily on the palate.

This is a stunning beer. The base beer is complex enough, but I think the bourbon barrel is used perfectly here as it doesn't dominate the flavor. I'm always amazed when brewers can put so many things into a beer and still have it come together so seamlessly. World class.

10oz. Pour into a CCB Snifter

Pours pitch black with a fluffy dark tan head. Big toasty nose with a big bourbon presence. Taste is dark chocolate with a touch of heat from the peppers and a wonderful bourbon overtone. This beer took to the barrel wonderfully. Great marriage of flavors. Mouthfeel is big and creamy. Would have loved another pour, but at $10 for 10oz. I'll have to move on. Glad I tried it though, would definitely revisit if I had the chance.

Had the pleasure of tasting this one the day of the release after I grabbed my ticket.
Was poured into a nice CC snifter glass.
Dark as can be with a slight very dark tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, and some sort of spice. This bourbon version really hits you in the face with the bourbon smell! The first taste is a mouthfull of bourbon but then slowly goes back to normal versions flavor profile. The taste is the usual IS bittersweet chocolate and coffee but then proceed with a spice taste. Also has a nice hop profile to it.
Medium heavy mouthfeel with a nice level of carbonation.
The BA version is extremely tasty but a tad too "bourbony" for my liking.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from tap into CCB snifter. Reviewing from notes taken on 3/12/10 at the release at CCB.

A- Pours used motor oil. Blacker than black. A good inch of head that has nice retention. Leaves nice lacing.

S- Unlike tha apple brandy, and regular base version, I'm not getting a whole lot here other than the bourbon. There are hints of chocolate present, however, the bourbon really overpowers the other aromas.

T- Not nearly as impressed with this version of the beer. IMHO the bourbon overpowers the flavors that are present in the other two versions. I don't get the chilies either in this, the bourbon is simply to overwhelming.

M- Still nice and creamy. However, there is a burn from the bourbon. No chilies present, the bourbon runs the show.

D- Def not as good as the base version or the apple brandy version. With that being said, take into consideration I gave the regular Hunahpu all 5s with only one 4.5. The apple brandy version was str8 5s across the board. This was still an excellent beer, just not as good as the other versions.

I was possessed by this Satanic brew at the Hunahpu release party. Two-fisting 'em for a hot minute.

A – It pours a demonic crude with a nearly black head that recedes to a clingy ring and big coffee stain lacing

S – It smells of the apple in the garden of Eden. The caramel apple of Eden, apparently. The barrel has transformed the nose a bit; it sweetened it and fused some of the previously separate nuances.

T – The taste is fairly straightforward: Hunahpu + Bourbon. It is basically bordering on overkill, but not due to anything specifically negative, instead owing to the truly overwhelming abundance of desirable, delicious and discernible elements. The flavors are dialed up to a mega volume, and they go as such: bitter cocoa, rich chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, coffee, chipotle, bourbon, and not necessarily in that order.

M – Very insanely thick. If the standard Hunahpu = 25w50, then BBH = 30w60.

D – Very drinkable, but not necessarily any better than standard Hunahpu. And of all the barrel aged CCB Stouts, I prefer Brandy Zhukov; this one is not far behind though.

4.47/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the faintest hint of lighter color when held to a light source. Two finger frothy dark chocolate mocha head with excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick lasting ring that leaves sporadic spots of lacing behind.

Sweet bourbon aroma that isn't overpowering allowing the roasted malt, sweet chocolate and cinnamon spicy chilli peppers. There's also some earthy oak and vanilla notes.

Flavor similar to aroma with a lot more pepper spice than the nose leads on. Lots of silky sweet chocolate malts, slightly roasted coffee and spicy cinnamon peppers. Like the nose, there is a nice earthy oak and vanilla flavor that balances things out nicely. This beer is perhaps to balanced and the bourbon takes away from the spicy chili notes from the base beer. This flavor does become more prominent as it warms. Deceivably drinkable.

Had this at the release party. It poured very similar to the regular version but had a weak bourbon hint to the nose.

Cold this beer was a let down, but after it warmed up a bit I was pleasantly surprised. It was amazing just a tad bit cooler than room temperature. The bourbon blended so well with the flavors of the Hunahpu's. It almost created a citrusy flavor at the end. It is a shame that there wasnt a way to bottle and age this beer. It would have been interesting seeing what it became in a year or so.

Had the Brandy as well and it was just as good!

Bourbon BA Hunahpu--what's not to love? Actually, was too over the top for me. The subtle notes of the base beer just get lost in the muddle of bourbon. The bourbon really overwhelms, and takes an extremely complex beer and makes it almost one dimensional and very hard to drink even one glass for those of us who would rather drink beer than booze. Don't get me wrong: it's still good. I just prefer the "simpler" Hunahpu. Actually prefer the brandy version over the bourbon as well.

On tap at the CCB Hunahpu's release.

A: Poured a dark, deep black with a deep tan head and some decent lacing for a beer of this magnitude.

S: Bourbon comes through in the initial nose, and serves wonderfully to complement the spicier notes in the original from the cinnamon and chili peppers. Beautiful all around.

T: Very, very enjoyable. Not a perfect 5.0, as while the bourbon does go quite well with all of the flavors in the original version, I though it masked some of the finer touches in the original version. Maybe it was just the bourbon, or maybe the additional heat from the barrel-aging, but I didn't find it quite as outstanding as the original.

M: Very full bodied and creamy with only a little bit of heat, which went well with what this was going after.

D: Again, superb. Slightly different from the brandy and the regular, but they all packed something a bit different, and each one was in the top echelon of stouts that I've had. Marvelous job by Joey, Wayne, and the rest of the CCB crew.

On-tap at the Hunahpu's release party. Served in a snifter.

A - Looks like Hunahpu's - inky black body that is impervious to light, a finger of dark, dark, mocha foam that dissipates slowly to a ring and some haze and leaves a few spots of lace. For a beer that must be pushing 12-13% (11% is for regular Hunahpu's) it looks excellent.

S - Wet barrels, earthy bourbon whiskey, vanilla, and so on. The bourbon barrels used by Cigar City have a very distinct taste, and this reminds me a little of Capricho Oscuro #2. What I thought was Big Sound in that beer is actually some sort of barrel-aging characteristic imparted on both brews. There's not a lot of the base beer left at this point - mostly chocolate, and negligible chili pepper or cinnamon. Still, it smells like an excellent barrel-aged stout.

T - Again, tons of barrel presence, with wet wood, sharp bourbon, and vanilla present. There's a bit more of ol' Hunahpu kicking around here - some dark chocolate cake, and a bit of chili heat that builds over the course of the glass. Finish is intensely tannic, with some roasty, dark chocolate bitterness as well.

M - Very smooth, sticky, full body, that is chewy and viscous. Lowish carbonation, with a dry tannic finish and only light residual stickiness. Spot on for the style, and highly satisfying.

D - This one is a slow sipper, and one snifter was sufficient. I'd definitely have it again though! The only real inhibitors are richness of flavor and high ABV, which is as it should be. Highly recommended.

On-tap at the Hunahpu release. Poured into a CCB snifter.

A: Opaque. Black, just like the original. Fluffy mocha head, but no lacing to this one.

A: Burbon shoots out of the nose. I think this actually takes away from the score, the regular Hunahpu's nose is sweet chocolate and vanilla, and even though I get those aromas, the burbon masks them.

T: I get the burbon straight away, followed by the chocolate and vanilla. Again, I think the barrel inhibits the brew rather then making it something better. Finishes very smooth.

M: Full body, quite a bit of carbonation for the style. But still very creamy.

D and overall impression: Drinkability is a little lower for me. I just can't get past the big burbon. Overall, I really liked this beer, but I don't think it lived up to the original. This is still a damn good brew. Skal.

Cigar City Takes NYC event at Rattle 'N' Hum. A great start. Aroma of pepper and bourbon come through. This is black with no head, understated carbonation. Above average mouthfeel. The peppers come through giving the whole RIS an interesting and complex taste.
Had this in bottle two years later and it was very good, though not as good as the non-BBA.

Drank on-tap at Rattle 'N' Hum, New York, NY
Served in a stemmed wine glass

The beer poured super rich and thick, like used motor oil. Pitch black in appearance with no head but only a stiff ring of cocoa colored froth.

The aroma was rather restrained initially. Roasty and chocolately with mild hints of bourbon. As the beer warmed, things really opened up. Sweet Madegascar vanilla beans came through strong. The bourbon element was huge, but not overaly alcoholic. Dark chocolate was also apparent, as were the rich brown sugar notes. Impressive.

The taste simply blew me away from the very start. Huge roast and bourbon flavors right up front. Espressso dominated. Rich and smooth in the middle with some bakers chocolate notes. Lots of brown sugar and maple syrup as well. The finish was ridiculously big. Uber roasty and oaky with (what I presumed was) a big alcohol kick. I later discovered that this heat was likely from the addition of Pasillo and Ancho peppers. Super smoky. Tannic and dry. Simply mesmerizing.

The mouthfeel was one of the biggest I have ever encountered in a beer. Ultra thick and creamy with a fine, silky, tongue blanketing effervescence.

Drinkability was amazing. For such an intense, alcohol rich brew, this went down so remarkably easily.

All in all, this was one of the most flavorful and well rounded beers I have yet to try. It definitely earns a spot in a my top ten list.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with an espresso black color and a nice little head that leaves splashy lace around the sides of the glass

Smell: The oak barrel is evident in the aroma, even before the glass is held to the nose; plenty of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla as well

Taste: Chocolate fudge and coffee, up front, but the chiles make their grand appearance by mid-palate, even though they were not detectable in the aroma; after the swallow, the effects of the barrel aging joined the profile, taking the chocolate and coffee to a new level; at the end, it is the vanilla and bourbon that linger

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A fascinating combination - sweet, hot, bouorbon boozy, chocalatey - a panoply of flavor

On tap into wine glass at RNH Cigar City Night:

A: Black as night, with no head on it, quite murky

S: Huge smell of roasted chocolate, coffee, smoke, and vanilla

T: The bourbon really powers through, which was a surprise at first, since I actually ordered the non-bourbon version and got this instead. No complaints, though, as the bourbon gives the powerful smokey chocolate a nice and smooth bourbon-vanilla complement. Coffee rounds it out quite well.

M: Full and smooth, not too heavy on the alcohol punch

D: Big, yet somehow the bourbon actually tames this beast. Like the way some oaked beers will dull out big flavors with some vanilla, the bourbon does the same. It's still excellent, but frankly, I prefer the unadulterated non-bourbon version.

Had this one on tap side-by-side with the regular version at the Cigar City Brings Everything event at Rattle n Hum 2/17. Served out of a wine glass because they ran out of glassware.

A: Served with a slight wisp of chocolatiness floating at the top of dark abyss of a beer. Lacing is stringy with near no cling, emanating from the brew like some kind of disfigured rag puppet.

S: Bourbon hits hard upfront and this provides an outstanding background to the sweet and bitter cocoa powder and chocolatiness that come afterwards. A weird spiciness is apparent somewhere in there but is hard to make out over the bourbon.

T: Bourbon aging produces a profound overwhleming taste that covers what is otherwise an incredibly complex brew. Can you tell that I think this is one of the only beers that DOESN'T benefit from barrel-aging? Cocoa and chocolate are noticeable beneath along with a sweet spiciness towards the finish. Bourbon lingers towards the end though and never really fades out, dominating the other delicate flavors. Finish is more of the same, though thankfully, does not linger on the palate.

M: Medium to full bodied with very little carbonation and very very smooth. However, bourbon barrel aging makes this one just a bit around the edges and I'm docking .5 for this. Oily in the mouth with a surprisingly clean finish that leaves little stickiness or aftertaste at all.

D: As I've stated before, this is one of those beers that does NOT benefit from barrel-aging in my opinion. The regular version is far superior because of an unmasked complexity and knowing that that is out there, I can only give this a 4.5 as good as it is. Still, one of the most enjoyable RISs that I've ever had because of its smoothness and unique combination of cocoa, chocolate, and chili spices.

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.

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 - 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.
