2014 Vintage

Black, motor oil viscous pour with tan head reducing to some light lacing. Aroma is highlighted by chiles, vanilla and sweet, roasty malt. Taste is sweet, heavy on the cinnamon, with highlights of vanilla, cocoa, marshmallow and finishes with spicy chilies. Not very spicy but builds as you drink and is a nice complement to the sweetness. The mouthfeel is chewy and viscous with light carbonation. Wow is this beer intense and challenging to drink. A great beer but it's a bit too much. A little too sweet, a little too much cinnamon and a little too thick. Great complexity, nice level of spiciness and an overall interesting experience I would like to revisit at some point.

Revisited 2014 Huna - the cinnamon and the chilies have subdued somewhat and the flavors have melded a bit more. I like this beer more with a little age on it (I didn't care for the cinnamon) but I still rate it a 4.25 overall. Outstanding, but this is a heavy beer best shared with 3-4 people.
