Very complicated beer regarding it's recipe, aging and blending. It's astounding how well it comes together.

Gorgeous beer - actually pours pitch black with oil-like consistency. Incredible aroma of sweet booze - brandy primarily. The rich chocolate comes through, very fudgy. Some rum coconut, and some vanilla sweetness. The cinnamon is prominent, very slight vegetal note from the peppers. Everything is in great balance. When it warms great barrel aromas come out - cigar box, tobacco, char, and more of the apple brandy.

Tastes vibrant and lush - very slick and full mouthfeel, though a little thinner than reg huna and zhukov. The flavors keep hitting - wave after wave, huge finish. Great brandy booziness and heat. All the aforementioned flavors from the aroma shine through on the palate with more vanilla.

It is over-the-top in it's intensity but so well balanced. This juice is from another planet.
