Bottle shared with Kyle and courtesy of Don if memory serves....thank you!
Black, oily, and lacy...looks the part
As an overall comparison between regular Huna and AB, this falls somewhere in the middle. Nowhere near as rich, luxurious, and special as AB, yet also not as peppery cloyingly sweet as regular. The barrel cloak much of the cinnamon and the pepper remains muted. Brandy provides a sweet blanket which masks much of the cutting aspects of the base while providing a different edge.
A good, but not great, beer. Never a huge fan of the base and while appreciative of the chance would pass on the price to be paid. A bottle split two ways becomes a bit of a chore....
