Smells awesome. Lots of cinnamon, vanilla and pepper skin. Like a slightly thinner Huna, but it tastes better. Great heat.

Sipping on this now, poured into a Stone IRS snifter.
Immediately after popping the cap, was hit with spice, especially nutmeg.
Poured a nice deep dark black with a creamy tan head.
Taste and smell are the same: some heat, spice and nutmeg but no barrel.
Nice crazy mouthfeel with some tip of the tongue tingle from the spice.
Overall, while a lot less ABV than Bomb or Freckle (which I had last night) this is my favorite of the style. Granted it's not an Imperial Stout but it sure is an Impressive Stout!

A 6% BBA beer? No bourbon coming through for me. Was it actually in the barrels or did you just let the Mayan Mocha fermenter look at the barrels? This beer could be so good. Could be the poor mans Hunapu...but no. Watery, unbalanced, and a huge let down.
